With the start of the fall months (Yaaay!! finally!!) I find myself nesting and craving to change things up both on the blog in my home… Mainly I have this pull to paint all.the.walls as light as possible – as in white or very light grey… I think I need a neutral canvas. You can tell by the state of the kitchen/dining/sewing room pic from last year that I went a little color crazy in there… I loved the green 7 years ago (oh my gosh has it been that long really?!?) but I think I’m over it now…
And though the living room is already light tan color, I think it’s time to freshen it up as well…
In other news, I’ve been nesting around here on the blog too. Tweaking and arranging and adding little things here and there and case you haven’t been with me for a while or I just haven’t gotten around to posting about it, I just thought I’d take a minute to run down a couple of housekeeping items…
First of all if you’ve been here reading here all along a big thank you! I’m humbled and thankful that you make time to visit this little blog of mine! Thank you for every comment, every like, every share and encouraging word. Y’all make this so fun and not scary to share my heart and my home. I look forward to passing on more ideas and thoughts in the coming year to inspire, transform and revive YOUR heart and home.
And if you’re reading for the first time, won’t you take a sec to follow along?
On the side bar, there are a couple existing ways to keep up with life as we know it out here in the country…You can sign up for emails each time there’s a post or if you’re another blog person you can follow through the wordpress button (did I mention how I love to see what you guys are up to on your own blogs?) Or you can hop over to the new Recollected Design Facebook page! (make sure to right click on the ‘like’ button and check “receive notifications” after liking us there…thanks! You’re so cool!) Facebook is also an easy way to connect with me if you have sewing questions or other general comments or ideas- I love to hear from you my faithful friends..!
Secondly Recollected Design is on Pinterest too… Too see what flips my fancy as of late here’s a link to my boards below… I love to see what you guys are pinning too so be sure to link up with me there if you’re visual like me!
Also the Etsy Shop is still open for business! It will close sometime in October to change up the merchandise so if there’s anything there making you swoon I’d love for it to find it’s way to your home…! If you’re local and want to meet for delivery or pickup- message me through Etsy and I’ll be glad to oblige.
And lastly, since you deserve a present for hanging with me for almost a year now (where does the time go y’all??) there’s a new menu item up top with some ♥ Free Stuff ♥ just for you. Click on over there and you’ll find some of my favorite graphics I’ve created for the blog all in one place ready for you to save and use however you’d like. My gift to you!
So thanks again for your encouragement and your support and general awesomeness as I share my thoughts and business here with you guys! I appreciate every one of you!
