So wonderful to see: when I first tagged along, there were but 16 followers on board, now there are 74. LA, your aesthetic is rare, not for the faint of heart, or for those seeking to "decorate." I love to linger over your selections, there is no other blog like this one anywhere, the black background is gorgeous. Thank you for what you do and, particularly, for how you do it.

Flo, Thanks so much for your generous praise! I added the Follower option at the beginning of this year and I so enjoy seeing the lovely faces appear there! I have many email subscribers, but I encourage everyone to also become a Follower...just for that reason.
Thank you again. It makes my day to hear that what I enjoy doing is enjoyed by others.
All the best to you. ~LeAnn
