Hi everyone! The winner of the March book giveaway is.......Richella @ Imparting Grace. Congratulations! Please email me your shipping address and I’ll put it in the mail at the end of the week.
Another giveaway winner was me! I won two really pretty bowls from Laura at The Notebook of Mary's Mother and she also sent me all these other lovely pieces.
I just love the teacups! Isn’t the inside of this one just gorgeous! Thank you ! I really love them all and I’ll put them to good use.
I thought I’d answer a couple of questions that I’ve gotten lately. Quite a few people haven’t given me anyway to get back to them. So if you leave me a question in the comments please also give me a way to reply.
The paint color in my living room and dining room is Squished Squash from Benjamin Moore. The color in the kitchen is I think Pear Green (or something similar) from Benjamin Moore.
I normally attach the decorative papers on the backs of my bookcases etc with double sided tape except my china cabinet. There I used toile fabric which I wrapped around large pieces of cardboard. I don’t normally use scrapbook paper because it’s too many little pieces of paper for me to mess with, but I know other’s who have and it looks great (and it’s very inexpensive).
I don’t have a method for doing displays (I get asked to do a post on how to at least once a month). I’m sure the people who are also professional decorators probably have something on their blogs about how to do them. I just keep at it until I like it!
My camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7. Taking photos is one of the things I enjoy most about blogging.
Somebody asked me what magazines I subscribe to or what my favorite magazine is. I like the British version of Country Living. I subscribe to the U.S. Country Living because I got it for $5 last December when Amazon was having all those amazing subscription deals. I used to love Country Home and Home Companion and since they closed I really haven’t found anything that I buy every month. Like most of you, I prefer blogs these days!
I think that answers the most recent questions. Have a wonderful week everyone!
