Thank you, Eddie!

A big thanks to Eddie Ross for giving me an award in his first Eddie Awards, broadcast live on Blog Talk Radio recently. Eddie now has a new radio show on Blog Talk, so tune in on Sunday evenings at 9:00 pm if you get the chance. I was honored to be chosen in the Decorating a Room under $500 category for my beachy guestroom redo. Click on the pic to go to Eddie’s post and see all the other recipients in other categories. There were some really great makeovers and ideas from the others too!

Thank you Eddie, for choosing my makeover in your awards. I’m honored!

And look what my friends, Eddie and Jaithan sent me….two more Bordallo green plates to add to my bunny dish collection. What could make a girl happier than that?! Thanks guys, you’re the best!

Don't forget, Monday I'm having a really fun giveaway going, so you will definitely want to stop by for that. I also found some treasures at the yardsales this weekend and will share those later on in the week.

I'm not familiar with Eddie Ross but I'm thrilled for you on winning an award from him! The guestroom redo is gorgeous and looks like it costs many times as much. I especially love that 2nd pic that Eddie posted with the chair and window. What a great spot to sit and read ... or peep out the window and daydream. Congratulations, Rhoda!
