Gettin’ Cozy

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Oh, the weather outside is frightful . . . .  Well, actually, it’s not frightful at all, it’s rather delightful.  Shame on me for singing a holiday tune in October!   It’s the middle of fall y’all and getting a little chillier around here.  Time to bring out those knit scarves and cozy throw blankets to add a little style while still staying warm.

Today I’m talking about getting cozy with knits over at The Inspired Room in Melissa’s series 31 Days of Autumn Bliss.  I get to be Day 20, yippee that’s me!  C’mon over and say "Hi" why don’t ya, and take a peek at some of my favorite cozy knits this season.

Winners & Warm Fuzzys

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Congratulations to the following two winners of the Noteworthy Giveaway:

#44: Jenna W. who wrote:

“I’m about 5 months pregnant with my first so I was drawn to the baby announcements, shower invites and thank you notes. I love the Shower Banner Invitations and would love to pass this along to my sister who is throwing me a shower in a few months!”

#366 Whitney who wrote:

“Wow! I love them all – but I think I would definitely choose the “On the Road again” Moving Announcements!   My husband is a Navy Pilot and we just recently moved AGAIN – this would be a great way to let everyone know!   Or maybe I would pick the Blue Circus Birthday Invites for Monkey Man’s 1st birthday!”

Congrats Jenna and Whitney, please email me! 

And congratulations to #263 Vanessa, the winner of the ‘At Home With Country’ Giveaway who defined what ‘Country’ means to her: 

“Country means: cornfields, backyard gardens, outdoor dogs, gravel drive ways, quietness that goes on for miles, family, painted mailboxes, good cookin’, big tractors, hard work, shade tree and animal sounds.

Country decor is a place where you can kick up your feet and relax a while. Rocking chairs on a porch, clean and tidy interiors that are still so inviting, big windows with wonderful views, crisp and relaxed linens. Nothing too fussy or that can’t hold up to some good use. Country decor is like your most comfortable broken in pair of blue jeans that fit just right.”

Wow.  Well said !  How inspiring is Vanessa?   

Reading through all of your definitions of ‘country’ to me reads like a feature article in Country Living magazine ~ there are some very humorous comments, some poignant comments, but most are heartfelt, and I can’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy reading them.  The definition of ‘Country’ for most of you is analogous to a feeling of ‘home’, how delightful is that?  

So thanks to all who shared what ‘Country’ means to you.  And speaking of hard work Vanessa, today I’m beginning to the grueling work of pulling out the carpet tacks on our staircase.  Ouch !!  

Have a lovely Sunday y’all.
