1st Anniversary of Beadboard Upcountry Blog...

With coming back from NYC, and the Trunk Show and, losing Murph, I realized my 1st blog anniversary has come, and gone. It's causing me to reflect on the past year of blogging and the amazing friends I've made and met.......And I ask myself, have I improved any? I still have logistical issues on occasion......Have I learned anything?????YES!!! From reading all the other great blogs out there..... Had I any idea how much time it would take to keep up????? Absolutely not. Am I keeping up? Maybe.... Do I get anxious that I don't have followers in the four figures????? Sometimes, but I have other priorities.........I am the proverbial plate spinner.....I have several in the air and one occasionally starts to wobble...... Am I glad I started???? Yes. Is the shop and me better for it?
Definitely.... Thanks everyone for your tuning in over the past year, for "getting it" and taking a moment to see what a blog from a small shop in the sticks has to offer.....xoxox Maryanne

  12. Bon Anniversaire, Beadboard Upcountry! I hope you haven't sold out of those fabulous knits yet, because I glanced through briefly when you posted them but I didn't have time to decide which one needs to come live in my closet in Charlotte... :-) Which one do you suggest? I loved the one you had in Paris, and now you have all these CHOICES!!

  13. Dear Maryanne, it´s been a great pleasure meeting you through blogging and visiting each other. You are such a gifted woman with so much charm and elegance that I really have learned much from you. And more than that, you are a very sweet and delicate blogging friend who always has warm and affectionate words to me, for this I thank you so much (hope I make myself understand in english).
    My blogging anniversary has also come and gone and I really didn´t realize it, it is like yesterday I have started my blog.
    Much blessings and happiness to you always!!
