Four Years Ago

Four years ago today, I pressed the "Publish" button for the first time and entered a whole new world called blogging.  It was scary and exciting at the same time because I had no idea what I was doing.
I just knew that I wanted to write about my passion for interior design and connect with like minded others.

 In the beginning, there was so much to say, so much to share.
Before I knew it, I had become a blogger and there was no going back!

For four years, I've written about what excites me in the design world.  I've also shared all the changes and evolution of my favorite rooms, especially this one!

Yes, vignette design has seen a lot of changes in four years.
But more importantly, there have been many personal changes.
Blogging has enriched my life in ways I could never have imagined.

So on my four year blog anniversary, I want to take the time to write a personal thank you note to all the followers and readers of vignette design, both past and present.
I truly appreciate your emails, comments and that you take the time to read my blog, especially when there are so many blogs out there these days.
Thank you!

I'm dedicating today's post to the sweet woman who called me this week from Texas to ask about the sofas in the living room above.    
It's people like her that keep me blogging, hopefully for another four years!
Pin It!

Hello Deloris, Well, this is a fine time for me to find your blog, and now I have four years of posts to look back on. Lovely to meet you and congratulations on your milestone. This might deserve a big class of champagne all round. :)

I thought you might like to know that I mentioned your blog in the course I am taking at Decor8/Blogging Your Way. We were asked to name 3 blogs we follow that we feel have a definite syle and branding..and yours came to mind right away! You stay with your style in all your posts and you are so consistent in that style.. Well, just a heads up that you may be getting traffic from others in my online "class" .

Congratulations on four years of great success as a blogger! Yours is the first blog I ever read; I found you when I googled "green velvet sofa" -- been smitten ever since! I ended up with a white sofa and a rosy pink velvet slipcover, but sometimes I think I should have followed your lead! (We just couldn't find the right color green at the time.) You continue to be a decorating inspiration to me! Many wishes for a long and happy blogging career!

Cheryl said...

Just to let you know you I read your blog daily! Congratulations and thank you for beautiful design vignettes!

gme said...

Yours is the first blog I look at every day. You have been such an inspiration to me. I had kind of begun to question my decorating style in this world of gray that has hit the design world. Your colorful home has confirmed that our taste will never be out of style. You've inspired me to go with my instincts and stay with what speaks to me. I'm always thrilled when one of your posts has items or a style so similar to what I have in my home - or aspire to have once I've seen it on your blog! I feel like we're old friends and that is a sign of a truly wonderful blogger. Keep up the good work. I'm anxious to see some new tablescapes!
