    I echo the comments above! I love your blog-it is the first thing I open every morning! I can’t imagine how it could be improved! I am an active 72 year old and still care very much about my home. Thank you for all the inspiration!

    Fairly new to your site—and I love the farmhouse style especially your kitchen—love traditional—not so much into the black and white—live in Florida with lots of sunshine and water—no cornfields out my windows—but each to their own. Found several suggestions you made enlightening (as clearing a lot of stuff off kitchen counters) There are some of us (sorry) with house, hubbies and kids who will NEVER be clutter free—sigh. But will try to stay motivated.

    I have recently “fallen into” a group of Christian lady bloggers (loved your posts at Christmas) who are upbeat and positive—not to mention informative and crafty—and I feel extremely blessed. Thanks for taking your time and energy to share ideas, thoughts, and inspiration with us.

    1. Hi Jan…I also live in Florida, on the water. So I don’t have a farmhouse style but friends here do and I have in the past. You’re going to love these Christian lady bloggers…I certainly have.

    2. Please share who these Christian bloggers are.

  9. Victoria Schwalbe says:

    I love your blog and read everything you put on it. I’m very excited when I see a new blog…like an email from an old very dear friend. Don’t change a thing

  10. Hello Yvonne,
    Like the other comments above I love your blog and look forward to each and every post. I love your home and look forward to seeing how you change things around to make it look fresh without spending the big bucks. I’ve tried your recipes and DIY’s and loved them. Don’t change your style or format. It’s great the way it is!! Thanks

  11. I look forward to your blog and the inspiration it gives me. It is great the way it is, I can’t think of anything I would change.

  12. Ellie LaJuett says:

    Great survey! Continued success in all you do. If it’s not broke don’t fix it!

  13. A friend told me about your blog recently. Your blog is so user friendly, inspires me to try new ideas, Don’t change a thing. Thank you

  15. Yvonne,
    I adore your blog, dear friend!!!
    One of my “first” favorite blogs from when I began blogging years ago,and still is today!!!

  16. All I saw were two questions for the survey…what did I do wrong.
    I want to know where you got that cute black and white lamp shade you have in your kitchen…love it..
    I look forward to your blog, elegant. I also enjoy your Sunday writings, I try to read it after I attend 10:30 Mass.
    Keep it up

  17. Nancy Kelly says:

    Hi, I enjoy your blog and the great pictures. As I am not a crafty person; I feel inadequate with these ideas. I would love some sites to purchase various items for my home. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit your home. Have a blessed New Year.

  18. ELAINE SCHMIDT says:

    I just discovered you. and I Love this site, it was just after Christmas to my disapointment , all the great holiday decorations, But I am loving everything else, I log on to your site everyday, and I cant get enough of it. Your decorating style is mine to a T. and I love discovering all the new things you bring to life. Dont ever stop……LOL

    1. Hi Elaine, I’m glad you found StoneGable! Welcome to the StoneGable family!

  19. Your blog is the best out there! Keep up the good work! Your readers appreciate you.

  20. Joann Hansen says:

    Love, love, love your blog. Goes good with the first cup of coffee of the day! Love all you helpful hints. Tell you a funny story. I was slow getting Christmas things put away. Finally got it done and thought- now I can get some sewing done but oh no_ Yvonne says I have to organize my cupboards inside 🙂 Look forward to you blog everyday. Joann

  21. Hi,
    I just started reading you sometime in December. We have very similar taste, so it has been enjoyable to read your blog. I home educate our 4 children so I am pretty busy. I don’t read your blog everyday, but I do subscribe. I leave the survey for those that have been around awhile 😉

    I would, however, love to know where you acquired that wire tray in the photo…I have been looking for one.

    Thanks so much,

  22. Wallis Rehberg says:


    You are by far my favorite blogger! I love your home, your style, your inspirational messages and your DISHES! I am a dish addict and I only wish I had as many lovely ones as you do. Keep up the good work…can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with in the new year!

  23. carole turner says:

    I discovered your blog recently and absolutely love it. I am retiring from my job and I am so looking forward to reading this every time you blog. I love your ideas, recipes, I love everything about StoneGable. I have to sign up from with my home email now, instead of my work address. Thanking you in advance for all your good ideas that I know you will bring in 2016. THANK YOU!

  24. Love everything about StoneGable!

  25. I read your blog every day. You’re usually the first one I check! I love our style, your delicious recipes, your Sunday Scripture and your photography. You’re so talented and are clearly using the gifts God has given you to bless us. While you love all things home and garden, it’s obvious who your King is 🙂 Keep up the great work!


  26. i read and look forward to your blog each day….you are so very talented and God has richly blessed you with many gifts, thank you for sharing these gifts with us. I love all posts gardening, cooking, tabletop and seasonal. The Sunday Scripture is so encouraging…you are exceptional.


  27. Kathleen G says:

    Finally did the survey. Yvonne, keep up the good work by being inspirational and spiritual. Kathleen in Az

  28. Love your style and easy to follow steps- Can’t wait for more 🙂

  29. I’ve been reading you daily for about six months. Love the vignettes you show and the colors you put together. Just remember that many of your readers do not have a website but just take your expertise and put it to our own use. We need easy and inexpensive crafts and DIYs for the most part.

    Thank you so much for all you do.

  30. Alice Roberts says:

    I think your approach works well as it is. Not too much on anything and just enough variety to be different and interesting and sometimes it is surprising at the same time. So, it is definitely not in need or repair or renovations. Your blog is the first one I have felt inclined to subscribe to and at my age, 72 I am still interested so far, in substance and creativity which I see on your blog. I try to find time to be as creative with the things I enjoy and I like to make “something” out of “nothing” whether it is painting a mural in a grandson’s room at his house or one at my house, I give it my all. I have always enjoyed making things like both of my parents. I learned embroidering, crocheting, sewing, cooking, and other skills including piano as a child and never quit taking lessons as an adult, such as ceramics from pouring slip into
    molds, cleaning, firing and finishing either in glazes or stains, then moved on decorative painting, cake decorating, and many others crafts and the latest jewelry making even in my 60’s to the present. You’re amazing, so keep on growing! You are a work in progress and God is not “finished” with you yet! Love the look of you site. Very elegant!

  31. I so enjoy reading your blog, I feel like were friends and sisters in Christ.I try and read your blog every day,some days it works out and some it does not, but then I play catch up. I so enjoy reading your blog in the morning with my coffee.
    Have a blessed Day


  32. Love your blog!! Yvonne! You do a beautiful Job! Would love to see bedrooms and bath decorated too!

  33. Jacklyn Carney says:

    I’m with all the other ladies on the positive comments!
    I look for you every morning before I head off to work, I love your decorating tips and your most delicious recipes posts!
    Sunday’s are very inspirational, You r a beautiful soul!
    I don’t know how you could improve, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”!

    Thank you!

  34. Your blog is interesting and enjoyable. Nothing major to improve upon other than I miss the food recipes you used to do.
    I love to cook and you had some pretty interesting recipes. Have a great day!

  35. Hi, Yvonne,
    I completed the survey, but forgot to say that I wish you had an archive list on your sidebar so I could review what you posted over the past few years. That is one tool I use on several sites to catch up on my reading when I’ve not been able to read blogs daily. StoneGable is such a wonderful blog, and you come up with great new ideas. I’ve been enjoying your Practically Speaking series.


  36. BOBBI DUNCAN says:
