I’m half awake (or is that half asleep?) while typing this…..but I woke up this morning to a sweet gift on my computer screen, and I’ve got to give a huge “shout out”!! My sweet friend Kelley, from the Polished Pebble blog, wrote a post today and mentioned moi. I’ve received 4 new followers this morning just because of her blog mention….so, a HUGE thank you Kelley! Cuz I love, love my readers and you’re all like family to me. Ok, now that I’ve got more followers, I promise to bump up the rate & speed of my posts….oh yeah, and write more interesting fun stuff. So, if you are going to be a follower, then I’ll make a promise to you that I’ll bring my posts up to warp speed & deliver!
Back to Kelley….she is truly one of my fave bloggers & if you haven’t read her blog, then you’ve got to check it out. Her design style is exactly what I love: clean, modern with a mix of the rustic & industrial, making it all comfy and welcoming to those who enter. Kelley & her husband just sold their gorgeous Newport Beach house, fully furnished . They just moved in to a condo in Newport, but they live most weekends in beautiful Ojai in their rancher style home pictured here, painted by the very talented Fifi :
Scroll through all her old posts because you’ll love seeing her Newport Beach house and her Ojai rancher. Kelley is a truly talented designer, amazing gardener, great blog writer & a sweet friend.

Fifi Flowers, the artist featured above, does beautiful work. I loved how she captured my home, featured HERE.

Thanks Kelley for making my day & seeing my name “in lights” this morning!

    I miss the hill country…We lived in Plano for several years and drove down so many times. It's such a lovely area of the US. (I miss the cool, crisp days of Nov and Dec, too! It's supposed to reach 80 again, for the next several days…)

    I used to live close to Plano also, in North Dallas….I'm happy to be in the hills again cuz I'm originally from San Antonio. I really miss my Plano friends though and that FAB shopping in Big D!
    have a great day,
