Hey everyone - I'm back. Wish I could say I was rested and revving to go but as is common with my travels, I come back more exhausted. Thats okay - they'll be plenty of time to sleep when I'm dead. So stay tuned for photos and a trip recap.


While I was away, the second issue of House of Fifty hit the interwebs earlier this week. It was a pleasure writing an article about how to make the most of a staycation. (ahem, page 106 if you were wondering). House of Fifty is the kind of online magazine that just thrills me - personal, full of ideas, founded by an incredible genuine and talented person and just an all around joy to read.

Another huge thank you to the lovely bloggers who shared their real room makeovers while I was gone. One giant kiss (mwah! get it?) each to Miss Mustard Seed , Savour Fare , First Time Fancy , 2 Seasons , Nuestra Vida Dulce , Modern Country Style and Go Haus Go . I hope you enjoyed all of the REAL ROOMs that were shared over the past two weeks. I'd love to hear what you thought of the series and if you think I should do it again.

And while I'm at it, thanks to those who linked up to the REAL ROOM party. I had sooo much fun looking through the 100 spaces, reading new blogs and seeing tons of creative ideas in your homes. If you didn't get a chance to link up before and want to share your own real room makeover, pop over and add it. I'm reading them all and will be sharing my favs in another post.

Phew - that was a lot of blabbering so I'll shut up. Back to my usual hijinks around here shortly.

    I absolutely LOVED your article- the photos were amazing and you gave so many fabulous tips...congrats!!!!

  2. I really enjoyed your article, Stefanie! With small children, sometimes a getaway in your own town is all that we can do! A lot of your points, I never thought about!

    It was a treat to work with you on this article Stefanie! I love how you layered pages of your article over the cover here, very cool! Thanks again for all your efforts...Janell

  4. I love this party idea and just linked up (Antiqued Glazed Kitchen Cabinets!).  I'm a little behind on my blog reading or I would've linked up much sooner.  Better late than never I guess! :) 

    Also, nice job on your House of Fifty article!

  5. I suppose I need to go take a peak at pg. 106. Oh, and I loved your Real Rooms series and (for obvious reasons : )) would love for you to do it again! And I have to say that I laughed at your "Phew, that was a lot of blabbering" comment about your modest paragraph. That's about how much I write on a SHORTwinded day. Ha!

    Maybe I'm just overly cautious but I'm one of those people that prefer a blog post with a lot of photos and few words.  (Easier said than done!)

  7. Yep, I'm the opposite side of cautious. I want to make sure everybody understands exactly what I mean, so I over-explain. I'm working on that.


There is nothing that thrills me more than hearing from readers. Please share your thoughts. ♥
