My First Blogoversary and a Giveaway for Readers



I started blogging January 13, 2009.  I had no idea how rewarding it would be.  Blogging has brought me to a place where design junkies like me congregate every day and bring their views and ideas to the table.  It is a place to get inspired and get your creative batteries charged.  There are so many talented bloggers out there who spend so much time writing and researching for their blogs for no money, just the love of design.  I have a day job in the design world and sometimes that cuts into my blogging time, but I appreciate each and every person that comes and takes a moment out of their day to read what's on my mind.  To celebrate and show my appreciation, I am doing a little give-away to someone randomly chosen from all the commenters on this post.  Just drop me a comment and you are automatically entered to win a beautiful Low Country Luxe candle in the Charleston scent.  These candles are heavenly!   (Make sure  there is a way to contact you!  I will leave the post up until Tuesday the 19th. I will announce at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday.)

Thanks and here's to another year of blogging!

Happy Anniversary! I discovered your blog a while back when I was trying to figure out how to cover the leaded glass window behind my pedestal tub in my new bathroom and someone sent me your link of a post you did a while back of a beautiful bath. I pop in when ever I can to see all of your beautiful posts.

p.s. if you want to see what I ended up doing in my bath, here is a link to that post:
