So Excited!!!

Featured on Welcome Wagon 

This past Friday, I found a wonderful and unexpected comment on my blog. It was from Brenda, who  blogs at Cozy Little House..... She told me that she had featured my blog on Welcome Wagon Friday!

I was so happy, I couldn't stand it!! Honored! Proud!!

I ran around the house telling anyone who would listen that I had been featured on Brenda's blog! And... it was a weekend when the Xavier Ct. House was full! So... lots of people to share my excitement with.

Brenda has given me several good tips, especially about taking photos. The best tip she gave me was... take your pictures in natural light, if at all possible.  Photography is an area that I need to improve on. And I have started using my iphone to take pictures. My little digital camera is old and I have one the latest iphones.  It's a phone provided to me by my employer... thank goodness it's ok to use it for personnel's a much better camera than my old digital one. Brenda suggested that I should keep my camera with me all the time. I keep it in my pocket and have started taking photos when I'm walking or out in the yard.

I sent Brenda an email thanking her for featuring my blog. However, I did want to publicly thank her as well! If you haven't visited Brenda's blog, you should... she has a wonderful etsy shop as well.

  4. You're so welcome! I wonder if they still have the real Welcome Wagon ladies they use to have years ago? Or is that a thing of the past?

  5. That's so exciting, Chris! You do have pretty pictures - that seems so funny that the phone takes better pix than the regular camera! I need to work on my photo skills for sure - I have a bad habit of waiting until too late in the day when the light isn't so good.

  6. Excited to find your blog. Hope you can come follow me too! We can learn together :)
