Do you remember how I told you I needed to gussy up my entryway because it was going to be featured?
Lauren McPhillips from imageimage
featured the entryway benches in her “7 Stylish DIY Bloggers” article this month. I am in some amazing company with 6 other bloggers: some I knew, and some were new to me, but wow! Check them out:
Made by Girl {blogger: Jen Ramos}
Rambling Renovators {bloggers: Jennifer & Sean}
Aubrey + Lindsay blog {bloggers: self-explanatory}
All Things Thrifty {blogger: Brooke Ulrich}
Three Men and a Lady {blogger: Michelle Hinckley}
Centsational Girl {blogger: Kate Riley Eshoo}
Thank you, Lauren and Style at Home!
Have you noticed I’m fully visible in Google Reader now?? Wahooo!
Happy Tuesday, y’all~


  1. Congratulations! I am so proud to know you are now a published author!☺ (Bet Mr. H is jealous you beat him to it!;) I wish I were in Canada so I could buy my own copy! I LOVE the transformation and I LOVE even more that I saw it in person! I am still missing all #'s 1-7 of you!♥♥

  2. what was the driving force for the change to fully visible in google reader?

  3. Congrats Melissa! That must be so excited seeing your stuff that you made like that! How did you get fully visible in reader? Always wondered why I couldn't before. I'm guessing I'm not either. But I don't subscribe to myself!

  4. Congratulations! It must be an honor!

  5. Melissa--how wonderful! This was fun to anticipate, and even more fun to see the real deal. How exciting to be featured in a magazine!! You deserve it, that's for sure. I'm so proud to know you!

  6. snappy~ when I put my feeds in feedburner (abt a year ago?)it happened somehow and I've never taken the time to switch it back. I also thought maybe it would help with revenues since people actually came over to my site, but I don't think it makes a difference. We'll see...if I suddenly switch back, you'll know why :)
    Anita~to have a full feed visible in a reader, you just go to the settings tab in your dashboard on your blog, then choose site feed, then choose full feed. I hope this helps~

  7. Congratulations, Melissa! Your entry was/is beautiful and you did a great job on a budget!

  8. Congratulations! I love your blog, so I am not surprised you got featured!

  9. What an honor! Congratulations, some of my favorite bloggers are on that list. You are in good company.

  10. Congratulations, Melissa. :) That is so exciting!

  11. I loved your idea. I already purchased my coffee table and as soon as we get our mudroom done it will be benches. Thank you for the great idea!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
