What a short, simple, elegant, easy-to-remember kind of name!
The name "Anne" seems to be popping up a lot the last few days and this will be my post to honor a couple of Anne's.
The first Anne posted a comment on my "Domesticated" post a few days ago and I was so thrilled to receive such a lovely comment! But, alas, Anne did not have a link back to her blog, (or she doesn't have a blog) so I was not able to go back and thank her for her wonderful, cheery comments. She said that she had spent a couple of hours touring through my blog and I was just tickled to know that someone does the same thing that I do! Every-so-often I will find a blog that just takes my fancy, for whatever reason, and I'll go back through all the posts from the beginning of time . . . do all of you do that also?
So, the reason I'm bringing this up, besides saying a big hearty Thank You! to Anne, is to let everyone know that they can post too. You don't need a blog of your own . . . you don't need to use your real name (maybe use "Anne" because it is such a sweet name!) . . . you don't even have to put a name! You can use "Anonymous" if you're very nice and mean it in the the very best of terms (like the sweet gal who also left a comment on "Domesticated").
I know there are many of you out there . . . I can see it on my Feedjit Live Traffic Feed thingy. So, here's a little challenge to everyone stopping by . . . leave a "hi" as you pass through next time . . . maybe even put your name in as "Anne" and we'll see how many we can tally up (if Anne really is your name or middle name, make sure and let me know!).
It's become apparent that I have mistakenly left out the "Ann" spelling version (which of course is even shorter, simpler and, dare I say, more elegant than the longer version of the spelling) from my aforementioned challenge . . . so please insert the name "Ann" wherever the "Anne" is and play along. (This is so much fun . . . how many Ann/Anne's are out there!)
Now, onto another "Anne" . . . and this is one of my favorites. Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill Designs is such a fun, helpful person out there in blogland and this morning when I opened my bloggy dashboard, I noticed that she has undertaken to entertain us all for a full year of Block-of-the-Month mystery designs!
Just look at this adorable block! THANK YOU, ANNE!
I have the pattern all downloaded and ready to start . . . but, really, can I take on another BOM? I'm going to challenge myself to really, really try to keep up with this one . . . if the rest of the blocks are as wonderful as this first one, I'm going to be in for the long haul.
So head on over to Anne's place and get your pattern!
'til next time,
p.s. My middle name is "Anne"!
