Thank you for inviting us into your cozy internet house! You were one of the first that I began to follow....I just love your little flower vases and the whole concept of thrifting them to use in the wedding...Blessings to all!


I did the same thing for my wedding! The Salvation Army shelves, the searching and scouring... and scrubbing... good luck to you and Erin on her big day!


I've always loved your blog - congratulations on being part of the book! Wishing your family blessings as you celebrate the wedding.


So beautifully said. Love the part about taking your dusty day off the shelf...I think blogging is really art too, in a way.
Hope you share lots of wedding photos, can't wait to see how it all comes together. One thing is for sure, it will all be magical!
Congrats on Blogging for Bliss!


Thanks so much for joining in the party today. Love your blogging sentiments.

I look forward to reading the interview, congratulations for being in the book! I can't wait to get a copy myself.


Very nice post! I just ordered my copy online. Can't wait to read it.

I can't imagine not having my Charlotte here with me in Blogland!

You are like a breath of fresh air - always kind and always inspirational.

Here's to many more blissful days of blogging together.

Lovely ideas.... and I love the book that just 'happens' to fall open at your page (you didn't jump up and down screaming with excitement? Because I would have done..... but you're an old pro at this, ain't ya?) Good on you!


Loved your entry in the book. xo


You have the best eye and a magical touch with found objects Charlotte. The tables will be so very charming. (I am just in love with the pink of that zinnia in your photo!)

I haven't seen the book yet, is it out in stores now? I'll try and look for it this weekend or maybe Friday - I want to go see Julie and Julia and the bookstore is next store. It's a plan! :)

I'm anxious to see photos of your flowers and vases. I did the same thing a year ago for my daughter's wedding only I'm in CA and she's in KS. We managed just fine. Bought lots of goblets, candy dishes, depression glass and bottles. It's a good thing they're the same colors as my house! ;-) Enjoy this precious time.


So well said . . . cleaning up some elements of the dusty day and making them sparkle . . . sometimes I think I have nothing to blog about, but when I look at my life, I do find the precious bits that I want to remember and share. Thanks.
