Thank You So Much!

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Friends, I found out that I won the 2013 Best DIY Blog in the Best Home Blog Awards hosted by Lamps Plus, how exciting! I have you to thank, those of you who voted, I’m surprised and so thrilled!


I wandered into my local Lamps Plus store a few years ago and I’ve been a fan of their products ever since. I used their drum chandelier and plug in pendant in my son’s room in 2011 and raspberry pink lamp in our guest room makeover this past summer.

Two of their mirrors have long been favorites of mine, the Casbah which hangs in my living room and the Hill & Dale which hangs in our hall bathroom (links below).  You can see both mirrors in this home tour I posted earlier this year, and I’ve also rounded up more of my current favorites.
