Isn’t this the most gorgeous Texas vista… bluebonnets in the mist at CEDAR HILL RANCH!
I belong to a group of bloggers, BY INVITATION ONLY who once a month are given a prompt and we write a post.

International Blog Party

This month’s prompt was…
” highlight someone’s blog, a blogger who may be new, or an old and dear friend…but someone we admire so much.   Make certain you link the highlighted blog to your post.”

I knew right away who I wanted to highlight…

This is my dear blogging friend Anita from CEDAR HILL RANCH.

Anita has been sharing her happy and upbeat personality and gifts in blogland since March 2011.  
Her blog, CEDAR HILL RANCH radiates love. It overflows with creativity and beauty in even the simplest things! She is a person who celebrates life and relationships and it show in her blog!
I asked Anita where her love for blogging comes from and she answered, “It’s as if God made me to do it”.
To Anita, a perfect day includes blogging! “You know it’s what you love when you don’t even need to be paid!”
Cedar Hill Ranch is named after her family’s get-away ranch in Texas! 
The pictures taken below are good examples of the tag line for CEDAR HILL RANCH… country living with a french accent.
The country setting…

Her porch that makes all of us swoon…

The real live Treehouse on the ranch…
Wouldn’t you love to be a guest in this room?
She love to decorate her “city home” too…and with a french twist.

Anita makes all of her own slipcovering and shares TIPS too!
And the girl can cook! I hope she will show us more of her culinary talent!
Her DYI projects are sooooo creative!
Anita is one of  4 Texas bloggers that host the very popular…
A linky party that let’s bloggers link up whatever posts we want to share each Tuesday!
CEDAR HILL RANCH is a must read for me!  Anita, you always inspire me! Thanks for sharing your life with all of us!

    Goodness, I did I not know this fellow Texan? What a lovely introduction, Yvonne. And, you know I will love anyone you love. Have a wonderful day, dear…I know we’ll all be at home tonight sitting in front of the TV awaiting the news (with a wine or a coffee or a very dry martini). Sending love…

    I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying meeting all these wonderful new writers online – thanks for the introduction, Yvonne. Your blog is gorgeous and I am worried that I will spend too many hours looking at your inspiring pictures and words – lovely to met you!

    Yvonne, you wrote such a beautiful piece about the ranch. I enjoyed chatting with you so much the other day. This is such an honor to be mentioned by such a talented blogger. I feel words are inadequate to express my appreciation. Love you!!

    Wow Yvonne you did such a wonderful job bringing Anita’s blog to life. I had never seen some of those photos, although I agree, she is such a talent with a unique look to offer. You are like that too. Amazingly talented.

    Yvonne I was so delighted to see Anita’s blog…we both live in Texas, but her part is so much more beautiful than mine and you can see why…it’s like heaven there at times!
    We have our own beauty, but is this not magical?

    Certainly a most accomplished lady! She has a decoration flair that I like very much. That bedroom with the three beds is so charming and I love how she organized the dishes in her cupboard! Thank you, Yvonne, for sharing this.

    Thank you very much for your generous introduction to another interesting blog, Yvonne. Looking forward to visit Anita’s blog.

    Best wishes for a great week,
    a la prochaine, karin

    Oh my! That is one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever seen! I just want to go sit and drink a cup of coffee in that tree house! Thank you for introducing me to Anita and her place. Also, thank you for the follow and kind comment you left on my blog, I tried to reply via email, but you are a “no-reply” blogger. I’ve been a long time follower of your wonderful blog.

    I don’t remember how I met Anita but from the very moment I opened her blog I have followed her. She has a special knack for adding things to a room that are like icing on a cake. You picked out some of her loveliest pics too. Have a wonderful day!

  15. says

    I admire Anita’s taste every time I go to her blog. I pinned her guest room and even bought some metal panels to make my own little dress display, but haven’t got it done. She uses interesting pieces to create a comfy inviting warm space all through out both her homes. Can’t wait to see what she does with the new one.
