How can I thank you......

A year ago this week I was sitting here in my office pottering away on my blog as usual at home hoping that someone might visit me, I had been blogging for many months before, but no one knew I existed, a bit like Julie from the movie Julie and Julia. I had a few visitors, but not many and most of them I think arrived on my blog by mistake. Until, two wonderful women, whom I adore, in the same week introduced me to all their readers.

Thank you Minna and Shawn

Two women, both incredibly talented and creative,

Minna Mercke Schmidt from Blomsterverkstad blog in Sweden

opened the doors to a whole new world for me. Minna and Shawn are so well known through the blogging world that there is little that I can say that you don't already know, except that they are both kind and caring and they both love to share with others.

They are a must to visit each week.
I was positively overwhelmed and totally amazed, my life changed and I have had thousands and thousands of visitors from them and thus began the beginning of my love affair with blogging and all the amazing women and men that I visit each week. I have had many wonderful friends since promote my blog and I am both thrilled and honoured when I see my work, my images, my link and my button appear on websites around the world.

I am truly grateful and I thank you

Today, is the 11th day of the 11th month and at 11am this morning we remember the fallen.

"Rememberance Day "


  1. Coty...You are so very kind.

  2. Coty,

    You have an amazing blog and I so enjoy visiting when I can, Coty I was so very excited when you responded to my question regarding storage in a small home. I always enjoy my visits. You are a wonderfully sweet lady.


  3. No--Let me thank you for showing me so many things I would never have had the chance to see and for sharing the beauty you create! It's always a pleasure to visit!!

  4. I am so very excited to have just discovered your blogs through Christina Porter's site. The garden blog in particular has me dreaming of spring and apple blossoms. So uplifting, inspiring and encouraging! I was also blessed by visiting the two sites above plus many more listed on your sidebar-such lovely and creative women. Keep up the fabulous work- I can't wait to see what you do next.

  5. oops-silly me- I meant Lisa Porter

  6. I too have been blogging for a little over a year. I never imagined the world of blogging to be such a friendly, supportive and wonderful place to learn from. I have spent far too much time blog surfing, watching and looking at tutorials that must have taken ages to build and met and forged friendships with the world, all from my own home. I have a very ordinary blog and often find it difficult to be as creative and inventive as others I see but I feel I should at least try to repay all the wonderful bloggers with a little about myself and who I am.
    How fortunate are we to be able to reach out to each other so easily.
    Thank you Coty for all your wonderful posts. I for one am always in awe and do enjoy and appreciate everything you do to bring your wonderful world and talent to us all.
    (...and lest we forget...)

Your comments and emails truly make my day a very special one. Thank you for dropping by and visiting me at home in Australia, I read every single comment and I treasure each and every one. xxx Coty
