Dear Mary in Texas, Oliso emailed to say your iron is on the way! Hugs, Anne P.S.  Your charm pack is also on the way.  Please wait for your Oliso to arrive before you iron it! If your name isn’t Mary and you don’t live in Texas, you can still have this iron!  You’ll just […]

    Deb - Anne, your blog posts are so fun! You made me even feel glad that Mary won that wonderful iron instead of me! Well, maybe not quite. But I’m sure she’ll love it. Congratulations, Mary in Texas!

    Just a comment about your moving your desk to face outwards instead of facing the wall. I don’t know your wall/room situation, but if it happens you end up moving the desk back to facing the wall (and it’s a blank wall), do what I did and put a mirror on that wall. We needed to install new bathroom mirrors before we showed and sold our home, so we re-purposed three mirrors (each about 4×4) by putting nice frames around them that my husband built. Two are in different bedrooms, and the third is right in front of my desk! It seems like I am facing outwards! I can see everything going on behind me, and I love it! Just an idea!ReplyCancel

    Ferne - I’m a mover! I just moved my whole sewing set up around the other day only to move it back again, but now it is clean under everything and everything is in it’s place. Time for a new project!ReplyCancel

    Barb - I agree – your blog is THE BEST!! and your readers are so amazing too! What a great idea about the mirrors! and even if you move everything and then put it back – it’s a great time to clean up stuff. (It’s amazing what I find when I (finally!) move stuff around – even though it has to go back in the same place (sadly, the room is pretty small but I’m grateful for having a little space of my own.)

    Congratulations to Mary in Texas! Whoo!Hoo! to you. Let us all know how much you love the iron (but that doesn’t mean we really love to iron)!ReplyCancel

    Deb Strain - Hi Anne! Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your pillow talk and your pillow! I especially liked the items for your husband. As I’ve told you, I am a long-time admirer of yours and your beautiful work. Now I’m an admirer of your blog! Sadly (but true!) my kids just taught me how to leave a comment!
    Happy Valentine’s Day,

    Camille - Congrats to Mary! I’m so jealous, I have had my eye on an Oliso. Do you love yours?

    Thanks, but if you saw my house right now you’d feel pretty darn good about yours. Trust me. I can’t believe you remember that. Seems like forever ago, Did you ever figure out that ExpoDisc?ReplyCancel

    Brita - Move stuff? Been there, done that. About a zillion times of here, no there, how about over there. Now my DH balks, as does my bod. So now if it seems imperative, I do have to draw little graphs and move furniture before hand. Then it’s a big deal to get it done. But planning ahead really does work. Just not as creative :-)ReplyCancel

    Linda P. - I sure am a mover, in fact my whole family moves furniture and stuff, makes our spouses crazy!! We usually have to do it by ourselves, so we call ourselves The Lone Re-arrangers!
    Hope we get to see the new move – your studio was all ready so cute!!ReplyCancel
