Snapshots from my Readers

A couple of weeks ago I had a successful blog sale.  Items are still for sale, so check it out if you haven't.  Readers who purchased items sent me photos of their new items in their home.  I love that!  Check it out.

First up, everyone knows Jill from Forever Cottage.  Originally, I wasn't planning on shipping the antique Persian rug I was selling, but after a couple of email exchanges with Jill, I sold and shipped the rug to her.

I am so happy I did.  It works perfect in her LR against all the light neutrals adding some color and warmth.  I am so happy the rug went to a beautiful home and is being used!

Next up is Marley.  She bought the white ceramic Rosanna Candlesticks that I had never used.  I remember first spotting them in Domino.  Here is a picture of the white candlesticks she used at Thanksgiving.

Isn't her table setting so pretty?  So festive.  Marley has started a new blog, 21 Sunshine Avenue, and an IG account.  Go follow her!!

And, last but not least, my favorite blogger Rene from Cottage and Vine.  She is so sweet and is one of the reasons why my sale was successful.  She posted about the sale on her blog and I had almost 600 hits that day!  Here is the python tray she purchased!

She kills me with her not only her interior decorating skills but her gardening skills too!!

I hope to get a couple of more pictures that were promised from readers so there is more to come.  Staye tuned and so fun!!


  1. Glad it was successful! That rug looks right at home--beautiful!

  2. Oh how fun! I'm wishing I beat Jill to that rug...and would love to have the Federal convex mirror. If only I lived loser.

  3. Thanks for the mention Fran! I always enjoy seeing how people re-purpose "new to them" items! Great idea!

  4. How cool that they sent pics. I really like the rug juxtaposed against the ticking stripe on the sofa, beautiful!

  5. That is an extremely smart written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to learn extra of your useful information. Thank you for the post. I will certainly return.
