  1. Hi Yvonne – I tried the Contact page but the form is malfunctioning,

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful site, I love it! While most of the ladies that I follow, like yourself, focus on the inside of their home, I focus on the outside – just starting as I just retired. If you don’t mind sharing, what theme in WordPress did you use? I realize customizing is personal, but I need a better base than the freebie with which I began. Thank you for your time and assistance!

    1. Hi Patricia, I think it is Genisis Child. But it really is my tech designer. Aimee at Anchored Design is AMAZING! You can find a link to her site at the very bottom of my page. So worth checking out what she can do for you1

      1. Thank you Yvonne! I discovered the link after emailing you, learning curve here. Totally impressed with their professional web presentation. No wonder your site is so pretty 😉

    Yvonne, where did you get that adorable glass base lamp on your entry way table? I finally have the ceramic snowflake lanterns from Pottery Barn, and am looking for a metal tray similar to yours to place them on. I just love that table, and everything on it!

    1. Hi Karen, it came from our local Pottery Barn Outlet years ago. The metal tray came from Magnolia Farm.
