Thursday Blog Share: Inspired by Charm

First of all I want to send out a massive thank you for your incredible response to my first giveaway and to PIY (Paint-it-Yourself) Pointers.  You sent me so many fantastic painting questions that you'll keep me busy with pointers for months!  If you haven't had a chance to enter the giveaway yet, you can do so here.

Speaking of giveaways...today's blog share is all about Michael over at the very lovely Inspired by Charm blog.  He is an innkeeper in Pennsylvania (how romantic is that??) and he just recently opened his Etsy shop selling homemade jams and jellies. 

I was lucky enough to receive a pretty little package from Michael for my recent blog giveaway win!  In it was a lovely note from Michael, two jars of his homemade jam and four sweet-smelling votive candles.

Since I'm a die-hard jam on toast lover, it was the perfect tasty treat to get in the mail.  You really don't see very many 'male' blogs in our areas of interest, so a different point of view is definitely part Inspired by Charm's appeal.  I also love to look at the pics and imagine myself relaxing and eating breakfast muffins at Michael's inn, I've always wanted to see Pennsylvania....maybe one day!

Have a fab Thursday friends!

    I didn't enter your giveaway, since I spray and I didn't want to take away from someone who could really use the brush. But I did have a question about how you finish your furniture, if you use a polyurethane or a wax over the paint?


Thanks so much for stopping by, I love reading all your comments! If you have a specific question, please email me at lhume1@mts.net. XO Lenore
