I know you are expecting a thorough post featuring all the highlights of the Junk Bonanza....don't worry....it's coming...tomorrow.....

First, dear readers, I wanted to make a request.

You see, I am coming up on my 100th post! I can't believe it.

I started blogging because...well....to be perfectly honest....I started blogging because I needed friends. You see, I had just moved (for the 3rd time in 4 years) to Minnesota....and have you heard? Minnesota is cold in the winter! And I am one of those girls who really does not like the cold so much! So I found myself in my house alot last winter...which is fine because it is one of my favorite places to be, although a bit lonely with the kids off to school and the husband at work....

So, I missed my girlfriends, the ones that I could share my complaints about the cold with, meet for coffee, or better yet, a glass of wine. I missed my friends who have great style and share my love of all things vintage/euro/inspired and obsessively and continually decorate and redecorate their homes.

And right in the middle of my first Minnesota winter, right there on my computer, I found a community of like-minded women.

I was inspired by my favorite bloggers, Linda of Restyled Home, and Kasey of Lola B's, and Melaine of My Sweet Savannah, and Kim of Mimi Charmante to start my very own blog.

And you know what? I have been fortunate and honored to have met everyone of the women mentioned above! What a fantastic and creative bunch they are.

So what is my request? I would l-o-v-e to get 100 followers of this blog by the time I write my 100th post. And as of today, I have 90 followers...and if my math is correct...that is only 10 more followers! If you read this blog and are not currently a follower, please take a few moments and become a follower. I promise exciting things are in store around here!

And after all, who knows what a second Minnesota winter will inspire in me.....

  1. Welocme to the Great 'Cold' Plains!! (although a bit late). I live in northeastern North Dakota. Anyway, I have been enjoying your blog--already a follower so I can't boost your numbers that way. Good luck with getting your 100 followers!

  2. Done! Follower #94 signing on...
    Should have done this already as you're a regular read. Six more should be no problem at all!

  3. Your so cute! I love it when I stop by and see what you've been up to! I too was recently inspired to start my own blogs...And I too am loving the community here in blogland. Blessings to you...dj

  4. Hi,
    I just became a follower of your blog, offically that is because I have been reading your blog for months now.
    I too find myself without girlfriends who I can shop with, complain with and just have a good time being with so the blogs are my outlet too. Each and everyone of you gals are so creative and at times, down right hysterical. Kasey has had me laughing out loud all by myself at my computer and than though out the day when I thought about her post.
    Love your blog and was thrilled that you got to be one of the featured people at the Junk Bonanza.I am hoping that I can go next year.
    I am betting that you will make it to 100 followers and more before you know it. Take care.

  5. You know you all warm my heart so with all your lovely comments!

  6. Hey girlie,
    I did a little post about you this evening as I do enjoy your blog and wanted to make sure others saw it as well~
    Have a fabulous week,

  7. Hi, Jill! Great meeting you this week! I beat you to the punch and become a follower just before you posted this. Only two more needed now! Congrats!


  8. Ta Da!!!
    Now you have 100!!!! Love your blog and just popped over for the first time a few minutes ago, and voila....glad I could help:).
    If you get a chance maybe you could check out my blog too? I'm not quite near 100 followers yet, but hopefully someday...

  9. It looks like you already got your wish as I linked to you from Kim's blog and ta da you were already at 100!! Kim is wonderful and although I have not yet had the opportunity to meet her in person, I am pleased and proud to be able to call her friend for almost 10 years now. So I will become a follower as I cannot wait to read more of your blog. I hope that you can drop by and visit me too!

  10. So glad I stopped by. I too will be making a move to another state, after having lived in Calif my whole life..to beautiful Colorado.....where it's cold....and I thought blogging might be what saves me....

    warm wishes,
    Karen Eileen
