So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye…

Goodbye


I started this blog way back in 2009, never imagining that 4 years later I would say goodbye. What started out as a way for me to share my thrifty finds, slowly became more focused on decorating and diy projects.

There are so many wonderful bloggers out there that encouraged me, praised me and lifted me up. I have shared very intimate moments with all of you, as you have shared with me. Concentrating my energy on home decor projects helped me to pass the time away, but what I really need now is to spread my wings and get out of the house. I have to create a new chapter in the book of Mel; I don’t know where it will lead, but now is the right time.

Thank you for sharing you, with me. I hope that in some small way I was able to inspire you, to lift you up and make you feel valued.

I owe it to you to say goodbye; there have been bloggers that have just dropped off the face of the earth without a goodbye and I always just felt it was a little thoughtless (I am sure they have their reasons).
I will leave the blog open for a while, but this is my last post. And, I’ll still be visiting your blogs so I can continue to be inspired to diy.

All the best to you and yours, enjoy the Holiday season and a prosperous new year!
Over and out Smile  (I’ve always want to say that)

Mel

P.S. I have moved all of my content to a new blog: www.broadviewheights.blogspot.com

There are no link backs, no widgets to follow, no nothing :)  Just a place for me to occasionally post the things I'm doing.

  20. Mel...Sorry I just now logged on to my computer for the first time in over a month. I am devistated to here that you are leaving your blog, but fully understand as I did the same thing when I became so ill it was too much of an effort to keep it up. I wish we were neighbors or lived closer so I could hang out with you now and then and we could hunt for all the lovely treasures to fix up and decorate with. Please keep my email address handy and keep in touch. I am also on facebook under Audra Burrus Erickson if you ever want to catch up with me. Thank you a million times over for sharing your life and inspiring me as well as countless others with your design aesthetic and budget friendly make overs. Much love from Arizona!
