Hello everyone, it is Wednesday & I am in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania!
Well kind of! The talented Marian, aka Miss Mustard Seed, from Mustard Seed Creations, asked ME to guest post on her Wednesday Work Shop Series! I was very excited and nervous to say the least. Marian is a very talented artist. She paints beautiful murals. She has a very successful creative blog and She is very sweet. Marian has helped me out a lot with my blog. The first time I found Marian's blog was when she had a workshop series post~Tips from a blog expert. This post helped me out tremendously! I am so glad I found her blog when I did.
Thanks Marian for this opportunity to guest post on your blog! My first guest post! Marian thanks for being so patient with me : ) I am so honored to be a guest on your blog!

Thank you Marian!


I am glad you enjoyed all those pictures of Yasmine's shop. In case you haven't figured out I LOVE her style and wanted to make sure you all got to see how incredible her store is! I had so much fun taking those pictures!
Take Care
Maria

I just read your guest post, well done!

I absolutely love the idea of using vintage sheets over slipcovers, so beautiful and yet so practical, too. :-)

Have a wonderful White Wednesday!

I just finished reading your post. I liked to see how every single object has been conceived and the way you explained why you chosed them. You are really talented, have great ideas and can make a room look unique with very simple pieces. A lot to be inspired for my upcoming home...

Thanks,

I LOVE your ceiling. We are looking to try the faux tin ceiling soon, but of course nothing beats the real thing like yours. It is perfect against the chandelier. Can't wait to check out the links!

Hey Girlie, you are too sweet...gorgeous {hmm, not so sure about that}, but you and your hubs are quite a good looking pair yourselves {and a he's a cowboy too, oooh - how many women have cowboys? } My hubs is more of a surfer/musician { who happens to sell health insurance - funny huh. } Let's just face it, your whole family is gorgeous & five kids you are amazing.

Happy Wednesday, xoxo Carrie

Thanks for the sheet tip. Now how about a tip on where to find vintage ones? I have a white couch and am constantly pulling off the seat covers. I just know I'm wearing them out in the washer!
Your guest post was fantastic and I loved all the details you provided right down to paint colors. Thanks so much.
