My First Post

Hello Everyone!
I decided to take the plunge and start up a blog.
Many of you have them and it seems like fun.
I will share my home decorating ideas and recipes.
I hope you will all feel welcome and follow along.
Have a wonderful week!

Melissa,
How did you get the popout player on your blog? I set it up on playlist.com but everytime add the url to HTML/java it just shows the url, not the popout player. I'm lost! :0{

Linda/"mom" said...

Dear Melissa ~ Besides "Congratulations!" on your first blog (so wonderfully done, & a beautiful home, too!), I wanted to extend my GRATITUDE to your husband, AND to you, for serving our country. It's truly MORE APPRECIATED, by so very many, than you can possibly imagine... After 38 years as a military wife myself (No, that's NOT a typo~~~ and 26+ moves under our belts!), I didn't often realize HOW MUCH it was truly appreciated, U-N-T-I-L we retired. Blessings to you and ALL of your family! Warmly, Linda (RMS "Mom of a German Shorthair"... I don't/can't blog ~ I'm lucky to just be here! Grins!)~~~

Happy To Be said...

Melissa, just checking in girl to see how your doing and I really love that you did a full picture of your home...how pretty is that..Hope you have a great Monday...hugs and smiles Gloria

Kristen said...

Hello from NYC, Melissa and welcome to blogging! Your house looks so pretty in the sidelines photos! Looking forward to learning more about you and home decor.

Hugs, Pat

Hey Melissa - I don't know about tablescpe Tuesday - I keep thinking I might but I never do!! I have a couple of sets of dishes, but just haven't really played around with them yet, not really sure why?? I had a table set for fall, the one I posted on RMS, then I even added some more "layers" after I posted that, but still haven't taken the plunge. I'll be anxious to see what you do though. Maybe soon for me.
Lynette
