Too Fun,,,,,and Weird,,,I've been Featured!

I recently participated in the Dear Debra of "Common Ground"  Blog Event, when she had her Fall decorating session. I decorated my little old sitting porch here, with Pumpkins, Gourds, Apple Baskets, flowers, etc. Debra had really inspired me to get my porch all done up for Fall............I really had more fun doing it  and took more time fixing up this Old House, than I had in years.

Shortly thereafter, I got an email from  if they could use my pictures/images for their Online Magazine. I truly laughed to myself initially and thought it was some kind of a joke, because WHO would want ANY of MY Photos???? Who would want to publish them anywhere, because, HEY, we all KNOW about Shell's Photo skills........But apparently they DID like them,,,,,,,and they Did publish them............

As, today, while going through my emails, I found that the pics they asked for HAD been published on their site......

These are just Two of the 5  photos they posted/shared........AND,  it IS a fun and informative site for Building/restoring/and decorating porches of all ages...........
And, again, I'm sorry I I kind of doubted their legitimacy when they emailed me .............It's just that we all get so MANY weird requests,,,,,,,,,and because my photos are never that good......I doubted them More! LOL

Stop by their Site and see all their fun images and links if you're interested in Porches,,,,,,,,Old and New!

Hugs, Love, and a Bus,

Kind of Fun and Thanks Debra, at Common Ground,,,,,,,You inspired me to participate and Post~
