Awesome Alt Mention

While doing my normal blog strolling, I was shocked to see my house staring back at me on none other than the amazingly chic, sfgirlbybay!

So imagine my further shock when I read on to see my blog was mentioned somehow at Altitude Design Summit. Sfgirlbybay herself, Victoria, was kind enough to share that Brooklyn Limestone was part of presentation and appeared on the jumbo screen!!

WHAT?? I have no idea what was said (hopefully good things) but its still pretty exciting considering the audience.

Further googling revealed another one of the alt panelists, Allison of petit elephant naming Brooklyn Limestone on the "reader favorite" list. Not sure what that is but it sounds pretty awesome.

Tangential note: Isn't this the most adorable blog header you've ever seen?

So whoever it was that included me in the presentation, (assuming you weren't making fun of my snuggie!) and/or the favorite list, thank you. You totally made my day!

And of course it would not be right to beam about my own tiny little mention without sharing the other much more seriously talented blogs. So courtesy of petit elephant, here is the short list:

Some of these are old favorites, I have a feeling a lot of them are going to be new favorites too. Do you have a favorite blog that isn't mentioned? Lets hear about it.


  1. Wow that is amazing... I'm so excited you were mentioned. Although I would be kind of bothered that no one told me they were using my house as an example like that, not really bothered mind you, just kind of. I mean when someone refers to your blog on the internet they usually link back to it and often they will tell you, so I'm curious why no one gave you the heads up!

    However, that is neither here nor there, what is important is that your house is amazing, and you completely deserve any kudos that are coming your way!

  2. Dittos to Elle's comment above. And DEFINITELY congrats!

  3. I see what you mean Elle but Im not bothered by it. It not like you can link back in a powerpoint presentation anyway. And Im sure I was one of many mentioned.

  4. I LOVE finding my blog on others' reading lists! It's a VERY good thing. Congrats!
