How humbling it is to stop by one of your favorite blogs (who I just realized is not even on my blog roll, but always at the top of my viewing history LOL) and see your own face. Joni of Cote de Texas is by far one of the most original, charming, and dedicated bloggers out there. I am probably still so exhausted from last night that I am just missing it, but I cannot find her email address for the life of me. I really want to email her a nice little "Thanks!". So if anyone can share or if you are reading this Joni, I am sending good Karma back in your direction~

Speaking of good Karma, and along the lines of Joni's post about our dining room, we said goodbye today to our HUGE dining room hutch, as well as a few other items. They are going to a new home in a children's boutique which I think is pretty much the coolest thing ever, and a huge step for WhiteBerry! I am hoping that the rest of 2010 is as good for us and WhiteBerry, and for you as well~

So that means the dining room will soon see a new reincarnation and more decorating fun for me!

Congratulations Holly! Your blog is a daily read of mine and has been very inspiring!! Can't wait to see more Whiteberry pieces this year.

How awesome...Cote de Texas is one of my favs! Gorgeous photo of you are the lovely little Wren, too! So sad to see the big cabinet go, but I am sure it will soon be replaced with something else. ;o) Can't wait to see what that is! And how cool it is that it will be in a store. It is awesome to walk in and see your work where so many people can enjoy it! ~mary~

Hi Friend!

I was shocked to learn that we made her list too! SO flattering!

And speaking of your discovering your face on someone elses blog- did you see our "Favorite Tutorials" post? You'll find your friendly face there too! :-)

Happy New Year!
Layla

PS...I have Joni's email if you still need it, just drop me a line.

Hi Holly! I was just going to tell you about the Lettered Cottage too, but I just saw Layla posted. I really love her blog too.

Very exciting! I am so happy for you! Hppy New Year!

That's so neat, Whiteberry's really taking off! Did you sell your peices to the store, or is that like a consignment thing, where they just sell it for you? I don't know why it matters...I was just curious how that works for some reason, ha :) Anyway, Congratulations!

Holly said...

Thanks so much everyone!!
Layla, HOLY COW BATMAN! I don't know how I missed that post because I have been reading all your other top 10's this week LOL.

I think I need to get the old eyes checked for sure now...

Krystal, they bought it outright from me since their store is a LOOOOONG way from here and they just made a trip in to the area to grab some other items. All the pieces they bought will be used as displays for other items, but I think they will mark them up and if anyone wants to pay for them they can.

It is so exciting to be mentioned on one of our fellow blogger friends site. Joni, I really don't know how she does it!!

Poindexter said...

I love Joni's blog too & found yours through her. So now it would seem that I'll be tuning in from time to time.

Amber said...

wow you look gorgeous Holly!!! Happy new year!

Cote de Texas said...

hey! hi! just saw this - thank you so much for your kind words. I was a little worried you might be a tad aggravated for showing your pictures without permission. I should have asked first but I wanted to surprise! haha!!! blogging protocol can be confusing.

I love your work, your house, your style - love love love it!!!! good luck for the new year - you are going to be so busy selling your furniture!

and wren is so adorable. she really looks like her daddy. did you know that they say 90 percent of girls look like they fathers? that's why it's important to marry someone cute! ahaha! just kidding. my daughter looks just like her dad too.

Happy New Years! Great things for the new year to you and yours!!

Krystal Wight Armstrong said...

Oh that really is cool, and even more of a compliment, I'd say, that they think your stuff is so cute and stylish that it will help display and sell their own things. Congrats again!
