I Love Sharing With You, The Metamorphosis of a Blog

It came to my realization the other day that I have officially been blogging for a little over a year.  I am the first to admit that there have been some big gaps here and there with my ability to get on here and post as much as I would love to. Another is my trepedation with computer experience and just the lack of know how as to how everything works or can work if you know what you are doing :-)   But I do love doing so and even more than me sharing is me hearing from you all.  My followers and those who don't yet follow but are leaving me such kind praises.

I have been really thinking about all of you a lot lately.  I have been asking myself what is it that my followers and those not following want to see when they log on here?  What can I do for my blog that would make it better for all of you.  The amount of things going on out there in blog land from blog to blog are really incredible.  There are weekly events.  There are giveaways. There are estsy stores.  Sales.  Tear jerking reads.  I mean blog land really offers it all doesn't it?

So what would you like to See?  Hear?  Know?  About me or decor or anything I can offer?  What would be some elements that would help this blog along?  Do you love the weekly events?  Are you a fan of the give-away?  Do you like taking weekly shopping outings virtually?  Do you like being able to contact your blog owner by email to ask questions?

My metamorphosis for this weeks post will be the updating of my blog over the coming weeks.  You all are my compass.  So I encourage you to suggest and ask away.  Anything you want to know leave me a message.  Any suggestions you have, leave me a message.  Lets do some suggest and tell here this Monday on Southern Whimsy.

In the mean time let me leave you with a very small metamorphosis I did for a client back when I owned my Interior business.  This just shows how adding something can completely transform a look.  Working with that was there and making it all that better with little effort.  The client had installed the drapery panels and then had no idea what to do with windows in the doors.  Simple Roman shades with beaded fringe was an easy and quick fix.  Choosing the striped fabric added interest and a wee bit of drama.  Please visit Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch by clicking here for more transformations.  Please remember to leave me a message about everything and anything I forgot that I mentioned above.  Have a blesses week!


  1. You have a beautiful blog and I love what you post about. I would love to see larger pictures. I can show you how to do that. I love your home and what you show us. --Delores

  2. I agree - larger pics. I hate not being able to see your beautiful home in larger pics. These old eyes ain't what they used to be. Also, I think you should have a weekly
    give-away for all your friends named Barb who live in towns called Jacksonville. This giveaway should consist of an
    in-home "shopping" excursion at the Whimsy House. Please let me know if I am a winner. Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Luv you!

  3. I just found your blog through BNOTP. I think the photos on your side bar are beautiful.
    You can count me as a new follower!

  4. Hi KD! Congrats on your year of blogging! It's a wonderful experience, isn't it? I want to thank you for stopping by and giving me some suggestions for my headboard! I saw one of those that has exactly the shape I am looking for! I am keeping it in mind for plan B if the real thing doesn't materialize soon! Have a great week!...hugs...Debbie

  5. Another one that wants to see bigger pictures and then after you learn how you can teach me! Of course I have to learn to even post the first picture...but it's coming!

  6. Larger pictures and a larger font would be wonderful. Thanks.

  7. Larger pictures, yep that's it! I just learned how to enlarge mine and it has made a HUGE difference! And since my eyes are not what they used to be I use the LARGE font on my blog!

    Love your blog!!

  8. Love your blog and I so agree that the bigger pictures would be wonderful. Hugs, Marty

  9. I'm climbing on the bandwagon and suggesting larger pics, too !! Your blog (and your talents) are wonderful !! Stop by sometime, Becca (Adventures in Decorating)

  10. I found your blog when I first started mine in March. I love your decorating style and think your ideas are beautiful. I would just love more decorating tips and ideas.
    Thanks for all you have done and will do!

  11. I just found your blog and have spent quite a while browsing around. I like what I see. I am a tarheel too! I have joined your blog. I really like your style. KK

  12. I love seeing photos of your home and all your vignettes! I have no idea to make my photos "enlargeable" on my blog...maybe VignetteDesign would be willing to help me also. I'll be honest...I don't know how to do much on blogger!


Please leave me a comment. I love hearing what you have to say. I read each and every one of your comments and I try to comment back when I can.
