still dreaming in vintage whites...

It was one year ago today that I sat down and started this wonderful adventure of blogging.  I posted my first photo...
And shared my first thoughts...

Well...I finally did it! I've been wanting to start my own blog for quite a while. I sit at my computer every morning with my coffee (and, yes, many other times during the day too), "meeting" so many creative people, reading their thoughtful posts and looking at their beautiful photos, all while learning, laughing and becoming totally inspired. I've waited long enough to join in on all the fun!


I have met so many wonderful people through their thoughtful posts that I now call friends.  Thank you for your friendship!  I am amazed everyday at the beautiful photos you all share ~ and they just get better every day.  I am challenging myself to take better pictures and thank you for all the tips that you share!  Thank you for all the great tutorials for so many craft projects and painting techniques as well as wonderful recipes and favorite treasure hunting spots.  Thank you for all the laughs that sometimes had me in tears.  There were sad tears too, reminding me that you are all real people, just like me, living life one day at a time.  Hey, that is what friends are for ~ being there for the good times as well as the bad.  Thank you for sharing your homes, your family ~ your heart and soul.  You have inspired me to chase my dreams and to never give up!
Thank you all so much!!
 
Now for the winner of my giveaway (drum roll please)...

Great blog, Sandi! And I love your booth at the store, too. I am in love with your dough bowl and table runner. I'm always on the lookout for stuff like that. Love the changes. Keep on bloggin'... :)


Congratulations Donna! 
Please email me your address so I can send you a little something from me and I am looking forward to seeing what you create with Paula over at Castle and Cottage for your new sign!!

I want to say thank you very much to all my friends and followers who stop by and leave me kind comments and words of encouragement.  My heart is truly touched by your friendship!  A little love goes a long way...
And while my life and nest have seen many changes this past year, I am still dreaming in vintage whites!
