Teresa is bigger than life.  She is like the Fairy God Mother flying all over blog land sprinkling her glitter of positive excitement for all things lovely. 

Blooming in Bainbridge


Teresa is one of those people that you know you would just feel right at home with and be her bff right when you meet her.  You can tell she lives her life with passion and no regrets.  Must be her southern roots, even though she’s been transplanted to Bainbridge Island in Washington (only about 3 hours from me.)

When visiting her blog, you’ll learn quickly that one of her true loves is her pup, Doogan.  I mistakenly thought he was the same breed as my Maybelline, a Labradoodle, but he’s a soft coat wheaten terrier.  So cute.  And she adores him.image I have fallen in love with her decor style!  I fantasize about having all white!  But with a 10 yr old boy and a black dog that gets muddy….(don’t have to worry about hair, cuz we all know labradoodles don’t shed)…….I wonder how she does it with Doogan?  It’s gorgeous isn’t it?  imageimage

This photo below is a bit fuzzy once I blew it up….but you can still soak up the beauty.image For different times of the year, she will change it up a bit…..Lovely.image  She loves to entertain.  She knows how to throw a dinner party for sure.  I love it when someone can stick to all white……I haven’t learned that yet.imageShe plans her dinner parties, writing everything down in a journal. imageI think this is on a side board somewhere.  The cake plates, the cloche, all the white………love it.imageAnd look at this!  She made those bread sticks…….I wouldn’t know how to act.imageIf you’re ever lucky enough to visit, she just may have this waiting for you. The girl has style!imageSticking with her southern roots, she doesn’t make corn bread from a box ( I do), she makes it from scratch like so many of her other yummy creations on her blog.imageYum!image    She’s as cute as a button…….happy happy happy!  Stop by and tell her hello, it will make your day.image       Throw Doogan a doggy treat too.  image

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway….scroll below.  Also if you’re in Arizona, I’ll be speaking at Bloggy Boot Camp, May 1st.  More information here.

Well Kim...
I must say...
I am speechless...
and that doesn't happen often!
What a surprise!
My heart is just pitter-pattering all over the place.
I'll have to admit...I was a bit intimidated and apprehensive about creating a blog...5 months ago. I mean with all the fabulous blogs out there (and I know...
I had been drooling in blogland... for years) why might anyone want to peek in on my little world?
This recognition...from someone like flattering beyond words.
Thank you Kim!
I thank you for the sweet sentiment behind all of your words.
I thank you for totally "getting me!" Don't you just love it when someone GETS YOU?!! Such a satisfying & rewarding feeling.
I am humbled and grateful...
to have Blooming on Bainbridge shining bright on
"Today's Creative Blog!"
What a gift!
And I like you...think WE COULD be Bestest Friends!
