THANK YOU, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL!


(Click to enlarge)

A BIG thanks to the editors at House Beautiful for featuring my Chair Collection Note Cards in their Holiday Gift Guide. They are available here.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! We were having record highs - even for Florida - in the mid 90's, but my weekend was enjoyable and productive. I got a chance to clean out/organize my closet. I was operating by the adage "if you haven't used it, lose it". Cleaning and organizing get me high. Sounds strange, I know, but it's cheap and harmless, at least. How was your weekend?

That's great Anne! How exciting.

And you sound like me - I find closet organizing immensely satisfying. It's one of my underappreciated life skills.

Christy said...

First of all - congratulations Anne! How exciting! I hope you can't keep up with all the orders you get now!!!

Also, I love cleaning out closets...we've done three recently and it feels soooo good to get rid of stuff! Goodwill loves us!

I love old adage's - In tennis, we have one "Shoulder High, Let it fly" - Funny, the things that help us, guide us. We helped in a community care event and bags and bags of clothes and lunches were collected, sorted, made and delivered!
Congrats to you on your wonderful cards in HB!

Congrats Anne! How wonderful.
I too love that feeling of less is more. Bags and bags to Goodwill give me that same harmless high. Doesn't it feel great?

Congrats, your cards are the perfect gift! I'm in the midst of a seasonal clean too... it feels very satisfying to have an organized closet, doesn't it. Suddenly it is a lot easier to find something to wear!

Anne-Congratulations. I'm sure you will be busy from now until Christmas filling orders!

Melanie said...

That's great! I know that you were tickled pink over it. You are not alone when it come to decluttering and organizing. It makes me high too. I love it. We are moving in a few weeks and I see some garbage bags in my future:)

Congrats on the terrific (and well-deserved) mention!

I think that it's the cold weather coming (at least here in the mid-Atlantic region) that's making everyone start to clean out their nest and get ready to settle in for the winter.

Congratulations on the HB mention! I hope you get tons of business from it!

Ivy Lane said...

Congrats! Those cards will be a big hit with all the lucky who purchase and gift give them this year.

Closet cleaning, purging and clutter clearing, all have a powerful symbol attached. It means "opening up your life to more good" we can always more good can't we?

Don't forget to clear your car as well...it's all good!

MrsLittleJeans said...

First off, major congratulations, this is wonderful. Second, I am jealous of your weather. I know everyone wants winter but I love it when summer stays around until the very last minute. Here it cooled off fast. Third, organizing is my one dream that has to yet come true. Good going Anne.

Have a great Tuesday!
