Kathysue's New Blog and And Barb's New Meme

Back in July my very dear friend Kathysue did a guest post on my blog and you all will remember the above picture from that post. She is the most talented designer that I have ever met and she is willing to help teach all of us. Her vast knowledge of all things design is amazing. I am so thrilled to announce that Kathysue has decided to join blogland and she has gone public with her new blog Good Life Of Design. Now I know you will definitely want to visit her and also please take a look at the first few posts she did. They are so informative and inspirational.

These are some additional pics of the same area of her kitchen. Just a sample of her talent and how she changes things up for the seasons.

Also my good friend Barb @ Grits And Glamour is going to host a wonderful new meme called Tabletop Tuesday. This is a chance for everyone to show off your latest tabletop vignette and to be inspired by all the ones that everyone else creates. I just know you will all want to join in the fun, so grab her button and I will see you on Tuesday. I can't wait to be inspired by all of your vignettes.

So many wonderful new things going on in Blogland. Be sure to check out Kathysue and to also join Barb in the fun new meme. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Marty

    That kitchen is mega wonderful, I am heading over there shortly! I didn't even know Barb was blogging again, so I will have to check out her new blog party, sounds fun! I can't wait to get back to AZ., it's becoming my 2nd home! Joshua said it was 70 degrees there yesterday while here was about 17! Anyway, I am coming within the next month or so and I will keep you posted! Hugs, Cindy

  13. I love how she changes her cabinet. I wish I had a space like that to change out. Well, I'll have to settle for table and counter tops. She's lucky to have a friend like you to feature her work. I'll definately check out her blog.

  16. Hi Marty!

    I will go over and say hello to Kathysue. Barb's new meme sounds like something fun and easy to do. I'll probably have to miss this Tuesday since I'm doing Rhondi's pillow party on Monday. But I'll try for the following week.

  20. How nice of you to announce these great additions to Blogville. I've been to KS's new blog, and it's wonderful. I've got Barb's new Tabletop party button on my sidebar. Have a great weekend. laurie

  21. I am definitely going to go and check out your friends blogs. If theirs are anything like yours, then I'll be hooked.

    How sweet of you to compliment your friends.

  22. Marty, I will definitely be going to Kathy Sues Blog.

    I am so happy to hear about the tabletop party. I was just thinking today as I was trying to redecorate after getting most of Christmas put away, that I sure wish I could see what others have done with their tables and sideboards and such. Will get the button and put it on my blog.

    I hope you enjoy your weekend! Any fun plans?


  23. Hello Marty; OH I love new blogs and your friends sounds really wonderful,can't wait to stop by.. And Barb's table top Tuesday sounds interesting.


  24. Isn't it just the most exciting thing Marty? I'm doing the happy dance, I'm so thrilled that Kathysue is going to share all of her creativity with everyone! Hugs, Kat

  25. You and Debbie are just so nice to announce KathySue's new blog, Marty. I've been visiting her since last night and what a wonderful blog huh? Thanks for the heads up on announcement on Barb's new meme too....Christine

  26. Well, that is 2 votes for KathySue, so I just clicked the follow button without even reading anything yet. I trust you both on knowing what is great reading.


  27. Hello dearest - you are such a sweetie to give both Kathysue's blog and my new meme a shout-out. Is it possible you are the sweetest person in all of Blogland. Yes, yes, you are! :)
    I can't wait to see all your beautiful posts each Tuesday. This new meme was created for people just like you who create wonderful vignettes. Its gonna be a hoot!

    I am soooooo happy for kathysue. I am a few days behind (work, drats!) and just out about it earlier today. Yoohoo! I also posted an invite in the neighborjood. I know you live far away....but it would be ever so special if you could come. Have a great weekend...Barb

  28. Oooh! I love her blog already just from those pics. I'll be zooming right over. :)
    Thanks for sharing!


  29. Marty, so good to hear from you! Looks like lots of happenings in the decorating world of blogging. That's exciting about Kathysue starting a blog, I'll pop on over to see her and I've been to Barb's blog as well in the past but I never hear a peep out of her and she must just have her regular sites she visits. I miss making the rounds more often. Right now I'm still trying to get the bedroom done. My new bed will be here on Tuesday. Can't wait.....we upgraded from a queen to a king...boy king sized comforters and sheets are a lot more pricey aren't they! I sure could use Kathysue's help with choosing a rug too! LOL! Have a good weekend.

  30. I don't do vignettes, but I will take a look..

  31. Sounds wonderful....
    Can't wait to go by and visit with your friends and the Grits and Glamour meme sounds right up my alley....
    hugs, bj

  32. oops, meant to tell you how much I love your kitchen re-do...looks fabulous.

  33. Love your friend's decorating. The colors she blends are amazing. Love it...


  34. Good day
