ARCHITECTURALLY SPEAKING.....

Since my last show at Matildas I feel I have been somewhat creatively challenged. While I absolutely love doing the shows, sometimes it just seems to take a lot out of me both physically and mentally. I am in the process of helping my husband move his offices to another location and in this heat...whew! After viewing so many wonderful blogs on WW I feel I am getting some of my juices going again. Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage the host for White Wednesday, did a post on architectural elements in the home...bingo! That made me so happy. I realized, because I think we all get "house blind" that I had some of these very elements that make me inspired...so, here's to all you gals who helped me get over my slump...thank you!! I want to also say a very heartfelt thank you to Debi over a Talking Trash.
She did such a beautiful post last week and told viewers to visit my blog. (I had over 600 bloggers last week alone!) I so appreciate this women...she is a true supporter of her fellow bloggers and I consider a dear friend!

I like your statment about being "house blind"...that is an excellent way to describe what I go through. Your windows are fantastic, and I love the drain from France! Are all of those things in your home? Just beautiful and unique...I love things that are different, yet traditional. Thanks for sharing them...and yes, Kathleen is great! Mary

Wow Gale, when you think that piece from the old pharmacy in Idaho needs to come back home, I'll definitely find a spot for it. Beautiful post. That is so exciting about all your visitors this week.
Hugs,
June

I just got several of those drains to take to Warrenton. I love them!
Girl, you made me blush. Didn't see that one coming. You deserve to be "discovered" and that's what we do...discover each other!

P.S. Hope the traffic is continuing!
