First, a heartfelt thank you to everyone for your blogger's empathy on my previous post. Multi-talented author and designer Gabriela Delworth even reached out to offer advice and help and lead me to a new header idea that I am at work on. Thank you also to the fabulous Ravelrer casapinka! I am always warmed by the generosity and camaraderie here in Blogland. It's a special place.
I must also thank Jacqueline deMontravel, Editor of Romantic Homes for asking me to be amongst this year's round-up of Romantics for the Valentine's Day issue.
My first thought was, "Me?!" I don't have a hammock that swings besides a rose garden, I don't even like candles. But then I realized that what my home is filled with is humor: warm, fun humor that I share not only with my husband but with our two boys.
It's humor that adds playfulness and charm to the things we do everyday. Like serve meals on silly plates.
Place flowers in jars and buy dish soap because the packaging makes me happy.
It's a lovely issue through and through and I'm not just saying that because I also have a tutorial. Although that fact makes me extra happy, too.
Look for other bloggers in the issue such as sweetie pie Cynthia of Cynthia's Cottage Design and her 10 steps to a French Country kitchen, and Romantics Janet Coon of ShabbyFuFu; artist Jo-Anne Coletti; and my popcorn pal, Sharon of Pansy Cottage & Garden and Launch Your Creativity.
