Also linked to Kendall at Finesse Your Nest: 2009 Best of Your Nest Party! Thanks for hosting Kendall!
And as of 2/10 I linked to the DIY Showoff !!!

I look forward to more of your posts in 2010!

I love your dining room and the double rocker is awesome. Thanks for the inspiration.
What fun! Just imagine what next year holds!
I have seen some of your projects in the blogosphere but somehow missed your blog. Well no more, I spent some time here already and probably will be spending a lot more time here in the future. Looking forward to seeing you pop up in my reader.

All that in 4.5 months? Wow! That second photo, ahh, what can I say about that second photo? Turquoise perfection! LOVE.
Cindy -- Thank you so much for participating in my very first linky party. I had nightmares last night that I had no responses, so imagine my surprise this morning when I found your post!
I enjoyed reading how you got started in blogging!
I love your dropcloth drapes, wow! They look custom! And those little corkboards are adorable.
Thanks again, and I look forward to your projects for 2010!
I swear I must be hallucinating... I went down the list of blogs and commented on every single one. When on earth did you join up with Rhoda's party and how pissed must everyone be with me that I missed... wait, maybe they don't care LOL
