Happy 2009, friends! Thank you for your support and friendship this past year. I started Canyon Wren Cottage late last spring, but I didn't get really serious about blogging till July or so. Since then, I've met so many wonderful bloggers and made lots of new friends. Your comments warm my heart, and I've enjoyed getting to know you all.
This new year will feature even more open houses of gorgeous hill country real estate. In fact, I'm meeting with a realtor next week, who's listed a multi-million dollar home in the area. She wants to know if I will help her get the word out about the home, as well as raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Um... Yeah!
This new year will also feature more projects around my own home. It will be the year we finish the media room redo, because once the entertainment center cabs are finished, we still need to address the laundry area, purchase seating and do something about the floor.
We will also be addressing our storage issues. It's a little frustrating to have lived in our home a year and not feel completely settled, but I realize that sometimes you have to live in a space to figure out how best to make it work for you.
Finally, a couple of dear blogger friends are featuring giveaways on their own blogs. Linda, at Lime in the Coconut, is featuring a fun giveaway in which the winner gets to choose the prize.
Penny, from The Comforts of Home, has a great giveaway, too. If you love shabby chic style, you will not want to miss her fabulous prizes.
