Click on the image to be taken there now and thank you so much for your support!

I love Stone Gable and all of the wonderful entertaining design tips that they provide! She comes up with some of the most beautiful tables. And in this article, Yvonne provides a fantastic Formula For Setting A Casual Table!
For all bloggers out there that use Pintrest:
Pintrest started back in January, I believe, a way to verify your website on your Pintrest account IF you owned the website. Well friends, I figured out a way for bloggers who are using the free platforms of WordPress, Blogger, and Tumblr to be able to verify your website on your account! Click HERE to get instructions! So, what would be the reason for doing this?? In March, Pintrest launched analytics that allows you to see your most pinned, most clicked, and general site metrics as it relates to Pintrest! But you have to have your website or blog verified in order to access this great data! For more information on this, check out Kludgy Mom’s great article on the subject!
