Sharing My Favorite Room


You can find me at  Savvy Southern Style today~

where I’m honored and thrilled to join Kim

and her readers and share my favorite room!


It should come as no great surprise

that room is my Potting Shed. . .


‘Potting Shed’ is a misnomer since

I putter and play more than pot  :)


and feather my nest!


Thank you Kim for inviting me to fly over~

I hope you will too!

    LOVE your potting shed. I came over from Kim’s blog (FYI). I am envious. Love the Lake Norman area and am envious there too.

    Every time I see your potting shed it makes wish I had one too. It is absolutely wonderful, Mary!

    Your potting shed strikes me as a space where you can do whatever you want and it neither has to make sense or be practical. We could all do with that.

    I love your potting shed. It is a retreat where you can putter and enjoy yourself and we receive a blessing too! I admire your energy a great deal!

    No surprise that the potting shed is your favorite room. It’s MY favorite thing that you ever post about. Considering the fact that I think you are the best tablescaper in Blogville, that is really saying something. I think I have pinned everything from that room…. like I would EVER have something like it. Sigh.

    I love your shed…wishing for one, but city life, city yard no room. I read you “about me” I worked at Filene’s for eight years…I have done the Holiday stuff…so very tiring, I was so tired one night I took a shower and thought it was morning and washed my hair and got dressed to go to work…those 7 am openings….
