In The Shop...Vintage and Antique Roses and Blogging

Happy Wednesday! 

You might not know that I've been blogging for over 8 years now, early on in the world of blogs! Originally I started the blog because I had been selling on the internet since the late 1990's, and my loyal clientele had been asking to know more about me and specifically wanted to see more photos of my home and more of the DIY's that I was then writing for magazines like Romantic Homes. I also found it a great way to let them know when new products were added to the shop (aka website) and it was nice to hear back with lots of comments!
Things have changed quite a bit in the blogosphere, or what I like to call Bloglandia and there are thousands of blogs these days and many making a living at blogging (or trying to) full time. 
Not sure that I fit into the modern day mold and I feel pretty much as I did back when this journey all began for me. I enjoy beauty and bringing beauty to others and don't count numbers. 
New items have been added to the shop! I hope that you consider shopping on~line this holiday season...whether with me or with others...
xoxo,

Hello Janet... oooh, I love that French Limoges chocolate pot, but it has already sold, darnit!... everything is so pretty... yes, I know you have been blogging 8 years, I am entering my 7th year... and I think I was shopping with you that first year you blogged before I really even knew what a blog was... things have certainly changed over the years... it used to seem like an intimate little circle of bloggers who all knew each other and visited often... now, like you said, there are so many... I cannot keep up with them all!... you are a true original dear friend... and I am fortunate to own so many lovely treasures from Shabbyfufu I have gathered over these past years... much love, kisses to those puppies, xoxo...

So many lovely items! You have such a good eye for gorgeous treasures.

I started blogging in early 2009 and I do agree that things have changed a lot. Many of my favorite bloggers don't even blog anymore, I think people are loving the ease and convenience of IG. I will never give up my little blog! It's a fun way to document things:)
