Sweet Surprises - Featured!

I couldn't sleep tonight so I turned to my latest addiction:  My blog.  I clicked on my dashboard and scrolled through all of the sites I follow.  I was excited to see The Lettered Cottage had another "Mantel Mania" post, so I headed over there to see what Layla had to say.   I was shocked to see that my mantel was featured in Layla's post!

Of course I am the only one awake in my house at 2:58 in the morning on this first day of Spring 2010 but I am silly with excitement so I had to blog about it and tell anyone out there who is as crazy as me and is up at this hour.   I haven't been featured on any other blogs yet, and to have my first feature be on The Lettered Cottage is an honor.  Layla (and Katie over at Philigry) was one of my inspirations for starting a blog in the first place.

Thanks Layla! You made my weekend!


  1. So I'm not the only one who can't sleep and is up blogging? I had to make myself stay in bed until 4am! My husband & kids think I'm crazy but blogging is so much fun!

  2. LOVE your mantel girl!
    Thanks for sending the photos to me- I appreciate it so much!


    PS...I corrected the spelling of your name too- sorry about that! :-O

  3. How exciting to see your mantel featured on another post! Congrats. You did a wonderful job with your mantel. It looks like a magazine photo!
    Patricia :o)

  4. Wow! That is quite an honor! I think we all have Layla-envy (but in a totally good way!) Congratulations on being featured. And....your mantle looks fabulous, so I can see why she chose it!

  5. Congrats Stephenie! But what better mantel to feature on this first day of spring?


  6. Congratulations Stephenie! Your mantle IS adorable! (so I'm not the only one at 3 am looking at my blog? Hey, the dog had to go out, so I checked!) Have a wonderful Spring Day!

  7. Hi, Stephanie, nice to meet you, thanks for stopping by, And welcome to blogging. Congrats on being featured at Layla's. She's a sweetheart & I'm blessed to call her friend.

    Congratulations On being featured on The Lettered Cottage!
    I love the mantel!
    The stairs and the closet doors came out Nice I really thought what is she doing....but now That I saw them I like them!
    You truly have the talent to decorate....I think Aunt ellen is right you should take this to the next step.


  12. Don't you love it when this happens? Well actually it has only happened for me once but still I could relate. I'm glad to know I am not the only one addicted to my blog. I seriously go to sleep thinking of post ideas and wake up thinking about it. I think I need an intervention. :)

  13. Congrats on having your mantel featured!

    Sweet dreams.

  14. I just discovered your blog through a comment you left on Sarah's Beach Cottage (isn't she fab!). I love your mantel and sob that I don't have one. Thanks for the scrabble message idea though...don't need a mantle for that...I'm on to it! And I completely understand the obsession when you have a new blog...mine's only two months old as well...isn't it fantastic fun (even if it leaves you very sleep deprived!)

  15. Being featured on the Lettered Corrage is like winning the gold medal of blogging! Layla is the best.

    Your mantel is insanely cute. I love the tulips, the painting and everything else. You are so talented!

  16. I saw your mantel on Lettered Cottage and have to say -loved it! now I stumbled upon your blog from Flea Market Styles blogroll!

  17. that is fantastic! your mantle is great! I love all the pictures of the foyers too. I decided not to do the black stain. I may do it someday, but I have too many other projects that I want to do now!
    Can't wait to see more of the guest bedroom!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment! I truly appreciate your feedback.
