Working on the blog....

Whew, finally got my border fixed back up again, after Tanya, from FrouFrouBritches told me it was as simple as getting an updated code...thanks, Tanya, my friend!  Now I just have to get my header updated with the Willow House catalog cover, rather than the SLaHOME catalog cover.  And let me just ask you to answer this in the comments...are you tired of me talking about Willow House or are you interested in knowing about it?  I wondered if me continuing to talk about it caused less people to be interested in commenting.....so would you mind letting me know if you like the posts about Willow House? thanks, friends!

Oh, and yesterday, I got a package in the mail.....woohoo!!! I won a giveaway from Kristin at We are THAT Family not too long ago, where she gave away a Panini maker, an apron and some DeliDeluxe coupons from Kraft.  It was a promotion from Kraft...so my package came yesterday!! Thanks, Kristin and Kraft!!  My son will be home for a few weeks so he will enjoy trying this out!
Today, we will be doing some "dorm room" shopping....so fun, but just makes the reality of my daughter leaving for college even closer!  You can imagine my excitement for her, but it's going to be bittersweet for sure!  It does sound so fun, though, doesn't it???

In other news, I did get home from my weekend with my son and his wife.  We got the window seat cushion made, the glider cushions finished, and the bedding put on the crib.  Hopefully, we will have a picture soon.  I will post a picture once the window seat /built-ins are finished.  Baby Catherine is one lucky little girl!

I hope to resume Friday Fives tomorrow....my schedule this summer has been so off; a few more weeks of hectic schedules and a little more travel, then get kids to college, and things will be slowing down.  I hope to get some projects done this fall, so I'll be posting about those!  I don't know where the summer went, but it has flown by.
Right now, I am waiting to see Pioneer Woman on the Today Show......did you know she is supposed to be on today?
Talk to you soon!!!

As for me, I enjoy seeing what you do and the idea shows from Willow House. I get ideas from it. I used one of your ideas on my tablescape this week, in fact. I don't know WHY I had never thought to use the wall plate for a charger plate. You did that in your chocolate party.

Anyway...

I like it when you show a new way to use the products that you sell. You could feature something different in every post, and I would enjoy it. I probably would like that even more than a bunch of them at once in fact.

Sigh. I'm jussssst a touch ADD when there is a lot of eye candy.

I like those Friday questions and am glad you'll be back doing them!
Summer rots... a bit.

Love seeing Willow House pics! Please keep talking about it! It's a taste of home & fabulous ideas for me all the way over here in Belfast.

You are welcome and it looks great. Good luck with the header!

As for me, I love to see the new WH stuff. It does make me a little sad that I don't have extra $ to buy all of it, but I love it anyway. I'm a pretty good window shopper.

I'm excited about seeing the Catherine's room! Can't wait for Friday Fives too! Love that!

Congratulations on winning that panini maker. You are sure to enjoying creating sandwiches with it.

I like to hear about the WH products, particularly when you show one of your own photos where you've used it at a party or some other function.

Congrats on winning! You will love your new kitchen toy. And it sounds like you have been super busy. Hopefully things will settle down after you get your daughter off to college. Love & blessings from NC!
