Three Years And Counting!

 It's hard to believe that three years ago, November 8th, I started blogging.
I had no idea what a blog was before that and no idea what I was doing when I wrote my first post!

It was my son, Aaron who suggested to me that I should start a blog after I told him about a great "website" my friend turned me on to called Cote de Texas.
"Mom, that's a blog," he said.  "You should have one too."

And the rest is history!
Three years and counting....

A huge thank you to all the followers and readers of vignette design.
All your comments and emails are why I keep blogging.
I truly love hearing from you, and cherish the new friendships I've made because of this blog.
It's been so much fun, and I look forward to another three years!
Pin It!

Congrats Delores!!!
3 Years of providing all your lucky followers with great inspiration and beautiful pictures. I found your blog through 'Back Porch Musings' and have been a happy follower for a LONG time now. I adore looking at pictures of your lovely homes and your decorating sensibility. I cheered when you were chosen to be featured in Tuscan Style magazine, as if I knew you!! In fact, you and a couple of other people were the inspiration for me to start my very own blog. I took my first tentative steps in Feb of this year and I'm having a wonderful time. 'Vignette Design' is still one of my all time favorite stops in blogland. I eagerly await each new post.
Happy Anniversary and Way to Go!!

Vignette Design was the first blog I read; like you, I wasn't familiar with the concept at all. I stumbled upon your blog while googling green sofas, and I've been hooked ever since, after falling in love with your green velvet sofa, your gorgeous pictures, and your talent! I read a lot more blogs these days, but yours remains my favorite.

When I found your blog, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Seriously. I have loved reading each and every one of your posts. Although I don't comment as frequently as I used to, I get your blog posts in my inbox and that makes me smile every morning. Congratulations on 3 wonderful years. I hope to be reading yours for years to come! xo marlis

Hi Delores it's been far to long in between visits, so I am catching up tonight. Before I go back to your older postings I want to tell you that the blog world has been blessed with such a beautiful blogger as yourself. I know when I first met you and your blog home style I was like crazy over your villa style. I so recall my first visit was that entry photo of that wicker settee and I was like so taken that I had to return several times that one week.

I some times stumble across a posting of yours and will look at leave, shame on me I need to comment more often.
Thank you for gracing your beauty in the blog world with your old world style and inspiring us all with your talent in all you create, design, and post.

Blessings to you and your family through the holidays.
I am looking forward to what settings you will be doing for the ThanksGiving meal, new or old or mixing it up again this year, it really does not matter what you do, it's all so beautifully inspiring we love it all.

Xox
Blessings
Dore

Ps. Smart son to encourage a blog for you.

gme said...

I don't know how I found you but I'm so glad I did! You are the reason I continue to read blogs. Some have seemed to have fizzled out and I'm not as interested anymore but you never fail to inspire me. Keep up the good work!

Tricia Rose said...

Congratulations, and many more than three more Delores! A great call on your son's part.

Congratulations on 3 years of beautiful postings Delores!
You and I have been blogging for, more or less, the same amount of time and it was also my older son who got me started (I hadn't a clue!)
I raise my glass to you and say "Cheers" to 3 more years of Vignette Design!!

Happy Blogiversary, Delores! Not only do you blog, but you blog often and use your own photography and show your own house(s) and projects...not many have such original content and I want you to know how much I appreciate all the work you put into your blog. Congratulations!
