I read your post the other day and was delighted to see that you're back! Hanging out at your place is always lovely.
Welcome back!I love that you posted a picture of tulips because I thought of you yesterday when I saw them at the market!Best,Tim
You were missed! :)Kat
You we missed and it is so nice to have you back where you belong!
Love those pretty tulips. Welcome back:)I'd love for you to check out my Scentsy Warmer giveaway if you get the chance!
Welcome back:) I love the tulips.
Missed your posts. Glad you are back!
I am belated but also wanted to share how happy I was to see you back with your last post!SheaVB
Great photo Joan! Took me a minute to figure out that it was in the snow. At first I thought it was swimming in the middle of carrara marble ... welcome back!
good eye Artie! Yes, it is snow not marble:)
SO glad you are back!!!
I tried to include a comment the other day, but could never get into my google account, and finally gave up. When I looked at it yesterday, my daughter in law had changed to her blog, and, of course, my password would not work. Great to have you back!
I am also belated, but so happy that you're back. From, Rachel in Pleasant Valley, NY
Hi Joan, Niartist is so clever!! I thought it was your marble counter top. Beautiful shade of tulips. Sara
Tulips on snow. What a perfect backdrop! You are also very welcome!
I am running late, (as usual) in welcoming you back. A few times when you were away, I clicked on your blog just to see if maybe you had returned, and I didn't know.... : )Good to see you again, and Happy New Year!Layne
Such a lovely pitcher of tulips!! Glad you're back!
GORGEOUS TULIPANI in the white vase.............Sounds like YOU were missed!Look forward to whats to come!xoxo
Yay! You are back! This is wonderful news today!
Hi, JoanIt has been a while and I am so happy you are back. The pictures of the snow are so beautiful and you are right it's very peaceful. I miss having 4 seasons. So glad you are back and looking forward to more of your lovely post. Have a great week.Hugs, Vanessa
Welcome back, and I love that photo.
Oh YAY! I have been checking in from time to time. So glad that you are back. I love the inspiration found here. k.
We're all just so happy your back !!!!
Joan....so thrilled you are back, you have no idea!!!!!! You were highly missed. Thank you, thank you!!!!
So happy to see you back again, and love that you are bringing back the calling card. I am not the best decorator, and I am on a very limited budget, but whenever making design choices, I have often wondered to myself, what would "fortheloveofahouse" do? Now, I looked at the pics of your mantel and saw the small Pottery Barn votives and was thrilled to find that I had used the same votives on my mantel this winter. Such a nice coincidence. I am looking forward to more of your posts. Welcome back!
Welcome back. You were missed. I was looking back over your older posts, when I came to your kitchen, I fell in love. I am just starting to redo my kitchen and I want the same look you have. I too was thinking about soapstone countertops and was detered from using them because they are soft and will stain. That's why I passed on the black marble I originally wanted. Would you mind sharing the name of the place where you found yours. I was not aware that depending on where they are taken from they may be softer than other places. Also, how do you like your Wolf stove as I'm thinking that's what I may chose. And I have to tell you that I have an ongoing love affair with that fridge. OMG. Would have loved to have had that but my space will not allow. Thanks so much.
I'm afraid I don't remember where they said the soapstone was quarried... sorry. And I LOVE my Wolf! I hate it when salespeople talk someone out of something they really want:(
Hi JoanI'm really glad your back.I have a new computer.I'm hoping my comments won'disappear anymore. Kind RegardsKaren
