  10. Modern Country Style says:

    Thank you so much for picking out my Modern Country Kitchen! I was SOOOOO excited to see it up there.

    And the funny thing was, when I saw it, I thought,'Ooooh, that's a nice kitche…….hang on……that looks rather familiar…..It's mine'!! Isn't that bizarre. Or just a bit thick!! It's strange to see your own house unexpectedly, isn't it.

    Anyway, thank you very much.It means a lot to me.

    I can't even choose a favorite this time. That lampshade, the rootbeer floats cupcakes, the laundry sign, the popcorn gift basket… It all darling.

  14. The key idea is SOOO cute. Since this is the first home I've owned, I think I'll start a tradition of saving a key whenever we move. Thanks for the inspiration as always :)
