Photo by me

Hello Everyone!
I wanted to let you know I am over at my friend Zaira's blog for an interview today.
I met Zaira last spring through blogging.
She is one of the sweetest girls.
Thank you Zaira for doing this interview with me!


Also my friend, Anne Marie, has a special announcement today.
I wish I lived closer.....


I love both of these girls!

Thank you for taking the time to stop in today 
and I hope you all have a great day!
Take Care,
Maria

Maria, I loved the interview! I've been following your blog the last few months and draw so much inspiration from it! I love your home and your realistic, simplistic, yet beautiful way you decorate and live your life. I'm still trying to figure out this blogging thing and how everything works so it's nice to see that you caught on so quickly and have done so well. It gives me hope :). If you have any words of advice I would love to hear them anytime. Thanks so much!

layers of memory said...

We can be left with nothing greater than gentle memories of one who has touched many lives in many ways.
When we gather happy memories and hold them close to our hearts the gentle spirit of peace will touch us and as we go on celebrating the time we had together we will find the treasure of remembering and the comfort of believing that each life is indeed a gift to be held in our hearts forever.....

true words of what you bring to us all.......

Haven and Home said...

I'm new to the blogging world. Never realized how much I'm missing out. There are so many talented people out there. I came across your blog recently and I find it to be one of the most well-constructed, inspiring blogs. Your friend's store Patine is exquisite. I could live there. You can also check out my blog at http://thesummerporch.blogspot.com. On this giveaway, ticking and me would get along just fine.

All the best,
