Green has always been one of my favorite colors. Since March snuck up on us (how did that happen?) and St. Paddy’s Day will be here before we know it, I thought we should be inspired to add a touch of green to our decor!

Do you like the color green?

Ya’ll, I’m STILL pinching myself about this exciting news– EEK! I am so honored to have been listed in the top five home decor bloggers by the editors of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine!

WHA? YAHOO! CRAZAAAY!? RIGHT? So I always feel totally awkward asking for help on anything, but so many of you have been with me here since I started this blog seven years ago and I’m extremely grateful for your support and encouragement along this wild journey. Without you I’d be talking to myself every day.

So here’s the deal: readers are able to vote on the five finalists for the top decorating blogger until March 5th, and you can vote every hour! (You don’t have to post it on Facebook for it to count). If you could rally your mom, your dog, your cousins and neighbors far and wide to vote every hour, maybe I’ll have a chance!! I appreciate you all SO MUCH.

Here’s where to vote, just click the vote button under my face at this link! Thank you!

    Love your site, your creativity, and great info you share w/ us. Have tried X2 to vote for you for BH&G blog site awards; but, alas, one cannot vote unless signed up for Facebook (system doen’t require going to Facebook, but does require Facebook membership…UGH!) With the many ways Facebook and other social meida “share” users’ info, have opted not to go onto social media sites. Is there any other way to cast a vote in your direction? (Please!)

    Again, truly enjoy your blog…it’s the best I’ve found!

      I’ve been told you don’t need an account to vote! Just click and your vote is counted :-) thank you so much!!


    After being buried in Chicago with more snow than one needs in a lifetime…I really need my green indoors.
    Hopefully, green will soon return outdoors.

    I love your blog, and would be happy to vote for you! I also love the color green, especially when it’s paired white white and blue. Good luck!

    First – Congratulations!
    Second – love the touches of green. There’s just something about bringing more green into life after the dark and dreary winter days.

    Congratulations!! Unfortunately I am unable to vote as u are required to log into Facebook and I don’t have an account! Wish u all the luck anyways x
    Also, green is a fav of mine and I have used it to accessorise my dining room along with pops of raspberry :)

    Hope you win, I voted and yes, I LOVE the color green. Especially the “pison” -poison- acid green that’s spring and means sap is rising.

  7. Carrie

    Just love all this green–maybe it’s my Irish roots. :) Love your blog, too, and voted for you (as well as shared with my FB). Good luck!!

  8. Kris

    Greetings from Coastal Georgia and Congratulations on being one of the BH&G nominees! (I voted for you and it posted it to my Facebook page). I hope you win as I enjoy your blog and all the pretty things you post. Green is one of my favorite colors and I’m glad to see more of it being incorporated into the décor ~ it brings a bit of the outside indoors! Hope you have a nice Spring afternoon!
    Smiles, Bebe :)

    I love green on the hills…but not much in my home….maybe just in live plants….but I do like the photos you shared…so maybe it is growing on me =)

    LOVE the chalkboard wall in green!!

  13. Karen on Bainbridge

    Green has always been my favorite color. I haven’t used much of it in my current home, because it was used extensively in my last one. Of course, my wall color is a faint greenish/bluish, so does that count?

    Of course spring is a reason to go green…the buds, the the tiny leaves, cabbage with my corned beef.

  14. Melissa @ York Zoo

    Green is lovely. It freshens up, livens up, and of course, makes me think of spring. What an honor that you have been among the few decorating blogs chosen! Good luck, Melissa!

  15. Emily

    Congratulations! Going to vote now – Good Luck!

    Congratulations on being listed in the top five home decor bloggers by the editors of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, this is well deserved!
    It is always a pleasure to pop into your world and be inspired by all the creativity shared here!
    p.s. …and green, the color of new growth in the garden, is one of my all time favorite colors

  17. Beverly

    Of course I will vote for you. So happy for your success.

    I like some shades of green but I am very picky about it. By the way, it is St. Paddy’s Day not Patty’s. Paddy is the nickname for Patrick.
