    I love your blog and I love your house. I am very encouraged by your ability to decorate your house to please your husband and still make it pretty. I love your colors. I’m a blog lurker and don’t comment much but I just wanted you to know that I look forward to all your posts.

    You graciously responded to a question I posed to you about the darling little cow/longhorn, I am getting nowhere with the store where you purchased this guy ! SCREAM

    There are six locations in Texas , I sent an email with an explanation to them and looks like a door is starting to close on me. Which location did you buy from . I will just call them or shoot myself in the foot. Sorry to bother you twice , but that face is so worth having in my own house! karen

    I loved your fall home tour! Thank you for sharing all of your great fall decorating ideas. Do you mind if I ask where you found the brass twig “S”? I love decorating with initials and that is right up my ally! Thank you! –Loren

    Hi! I really like your blog, but I’m having trouble subscribing to it by email. The email signup says, “The publisher has deactivated subscriptions by email.” Is there another way I can follow by email? Thank you.

    • Julie Julie says:

      Hi Penny,
      Did you try subscribing using the hello bar that’s at the top of my blog page? I recently switched to a different email client because it has more features than Feedburner. I’m still working out some kinks, so I apologize if you’re having problems. If you aren’t successful with the hello bar at the top of my blog page, then please email me at I’d really like to get these issues resolved, so I appreciate your help and patience!
      Thank you!

    • Julie Julie says:

      Penny, you can disregard my first message…I was able to manually add you to my subscription list. I will be publishing a new post tomorrow, so you should begin receiving emails tomorrow. If you don’t receive it, please let me know so I can look in to it further. Thanks so much!

    I have a question about the size of the Ballard Carriage House Chandeliers you used over the island. Which size of chandelier did you use (small 12 inch x 8 inch or large 18 1/4 inch x 12 inch) and what is the size of your island? We are redoing our kitchen and will have an island 6 ft x 43 1/2 inches and I can’t figure out if I need 2 or 3 small or maybe 2 large chandeliers? Your kitchen is lovely and thank you for your response and time!

    • Julie Julie says:

      Hi Betty,
      Your question brings back memories! I emailed a few bloggers myself asking about lighting size, tile, etc. Kitchen remodels are a lot of work and research! My island is 6′ x 40″ (almost the same as yours) and I have 2 of the large carriage lanterns. Fyi…the 18 1/4 inch size is the total height including the little rod with the ring that attaches to the chain. The actual size of the lantern box itself is roughly 13 1/2″ at it’s tallest point, if that makes sense. I hope that helps and good luck to you!

  6. Betty Tobben says:

    Thank you for such a quick and informed response! Actually knowing the dimensions of light/island really helps with making a decision. And I like all the same things you do about this light- not too obtrusive, won’t require a lot of upkeep to keep looking clean and very pretty and a good price too. Thanks again!

    I’ve read all your posts about the problems with marble countertops — I have Silestone and couldn’t be happier — it is gorgeous to look at, easy care and practically impervious to any kind of mishap.

    I do enjoy reading your posts and am glad your kitchen chaos is settled — remodeling is a hassle.

    • Julie Julie says:

      Thanks so much Patty! I’m glad it’s all settled too. 🙂 I’ve heard great things about Silestone and have often wish we had given it a more serious look but now that everything is fixed I’m really happy with my marble. It’s not for everyone but looking at it every day does make me smile!
      Have a wonderful weekend!
