Around the House - IV

It's been a while since I posted one of my "Around the House" posts. The truth is, I've been feeling a little shy since I found out that a personal friend discovered this blog! You see, though this blog is listed on my profile, I purposefully chose not to "advertise" it to most of my close family and friends (the exception being my sister and BFF), unlike my other blog. I don't know why I feel this way, perhaps because there are some things that are easier to share with strangers than those most familiar with you? Can anyone else relate?

Voila--our bed, wrinkled sheets and all!


Hi, I'm "Chone" said...


Don't be shy! This beautiful blog represents exactly who you are, a sweet, sophisticated, beautiful, lovely, godly women. God gave you an eye for those things that are beautiful. I'm glad that you're sharing it with us. To be honest, your blog is quite refreshing. I look forward to seeing the beautiful things that inspire you, thus inspiring me. You’re a great inspiration to me so I encourage you to continue on. I look forward to seeing more.

I feel very privileged that you have shared this site with me. I intend to start printing pages and keep these special finds of yours and your inspirational writing in a journal. You had asked, “How often should one post on a blog?” for you, my response would be daily! By the way, I took your quiz links. Apparently, I am ‘Elinor Dashwood’ and my signature style is ‘Understated Elegance’. Do you think that holds true? Fabulous! Happy springtime Jean!

Your BFF :),

Ohhhhhh, I LOVE that picture! I wish I were a better photographer. The pictures I take of my house never seem to look that good. Wahhh. But back to you, Jean, this is gorgeous!

Thanks ladies, you make blogging all the more enjoyable. There is a pleasure in finding pretty things, but it's definitely more fun when you share it with others!

Chone: I'm glad you "discovered" my not-so-secret blog!

Michelle: Thanks for being there from the very beginning.

Katrina: Thanks for being one of the very first new friends I made through this blog.

Jean, you already know what I'm going to say...this room is beautiful. I now have blog photo envy.

BTW, you aren't the only "shy" one. None of my "real life" friends know I blog. Well, I take that back. My parents, BFF, and Hubby know.

Mara, it's good to know I'm not alone with the shyness! BTW, you wouldn't have photo envy if you'd seen the room prior to clearing out the daily clutter that is usually there--son's books and toys, hubby's pajamas, my mags and notebooks, etc.

Thanks for giving us a peek into your lovely bedroom. It's so serene. We're hoping to create that in our bedroom this year.

Easter blessings to you and your family,

Mrs. Jules
