    Hi - love your blog. I was scrolling through all your December postings and was wondering about the trees that you have on your table. What are they made out of - are they wood? All your Christmas decorations are beautiful and your house is beautiful. Thanks.

    Do you decorate for yourself or the people who see it on the internet? If you like it and you are happy with it forget the comments. You are the only one who counts. There will always be someone who doesn't like something you do. I liked it . Be proud of what you did.

    I love your home, your blog and your writing style. I'm on my Ipad and having trouble seeing the place where I can follow. This hasn't happened on my Ipad before. I'll be back later on my laptop to join! I definitely want to follow along! Who knows, maybe i can get some inspiration to make my little ranch house look even better.

    I just have to say that I love your blog. Everytime I read it I smile, I love how you run sentences together, its like you have a thought in your brain and while its coming out you have one more thought on something else thats kinda related but maybe just in your brain and before you finish that thought another one pops up. For ever I thought I was the only person in the world who had that kind of thing going on in my head. And I love farm houses, it reminds me of my childhood growing up visiting my aunt and uncle in the country. I lived for the weekends when we would go there. Your decorating tips and diys are amazing.

Can't wait to see what I can learn from you and hopefully share some new/different ideas, etc...if not new projects or expereinces, then I promise to at least send my support and any insights I may have..... Till then...Letty

    Hi-- I have a challenging home exterior project. Over our windows we have styrofoam popouts that will be covered in synthetic stucco. I want these painted to look like wood. The surface is mostly flat and has a smooth sand finish. I've looked at many tutorials for painting faux wood finishes, but no one has used a base material anything near this. Do you have any suggestions? Our house is getting the final cost of stucco next week and I am "stuck"!! Thanks! Alicia Ps- we live in AZ and everything takes a beating from the sun!

    Do you have a suggestion for a lighter gray paint color with a hint of blue undertone for my living room that has white trim? I have some blue in my accents (rugs, pillow, etc) that I would like to bring out.

    Haven't received your blog via email for several weeks. I have been getting a feed for several years, but it just stopped. I have signed up (I think in the proper place) a few times to no avail. What should I do to get the daily email notices again?

    Same thing has happened to me. Blog just stopped coming. Please tell me how to get it back. I miss it. Thanks so much.

    Hi! I wanted to know if you have the windows original to you home? If so have you had them redone and who did it? I am looking at an old farmhouse north of Denton and want to keep the original windows - if I buy the house and if the windows are keepable (lots of ifs!). Thanks!

    Hi, I have been following you for several years. I really like your "What I bought Wednesday"......I'm not sure that's the name. I can't find it on your website, but I'm sure that's because I'm not looking at the right place. Can you tell me where to look? Thanks you!!!
