I have been following you on Pinterest and just found your blog. New to all this blogging stuff! I haven't done anything from your blog but I love the shelf with the funnels. I found the Folk magazine on your site and also checked it out. I am trying to find my shops near me, wish you were closer!

I love all your pins &I follow you in fb! You are so creative,I wish your inn wasn't so far f from here. I would love a little weekend getaway with the hubby there! But maybe someday we'll get out there. I would love to see all your talent in person & taste some of those recipes I haven't tried cause my hubby is a picky eater! Love the skateboard for a plant holder,I had a skateboard when I was young!! That was a neat idea! I really the sign you made too! Everything you do looks so nice! Ooh yeah, I'm excited about this giveaway too! :D

Megan said...

I have been following you on pinterest and I have to say that I love all of the breakfast recipies you post! breakfast is the best :) I could eat it for every meal!
Recently, however, I loved your post about creating a vertical garden. (Outdoor Shelves Part Two: Framed Hens and Chicks) Great tutorial!

Megan said...

Loved the pink Christmas post.

Hello! Though I am relatively new on pinterest, I have been an AVID pinner! I have followed your pins consistently especially your "i am inspired" board.

This pin in particular really touched me. A great modern love story that had me in tears by the end. I feel close to the message because I stand by my friends, family and loved ones in their right to have a loving and committed relationship. It was my favorite pin because it was a better love story than any 2 hour love story I've seen in years!

Hi! How wonderful to discover a blog done by a man. I am somewhat new to exploring blogs and excited to see more of yours; meanwhile I really like the sedum in the crate idea. Someone just gave me some sedum and wooden crates are always a winner with me.

Bev Ebersole said...

I love everything you pin on pintrest and your blog. I'm hoping to talk my husband into visiting your Inn this summer. What I really like is when you talk about Nicholas, Noah and Emma. They are such wonderful nephews and niece also your wonderful Sister-in-Law. Today was the last day of preschool, I will miss seeing Nicholas in my class.

Bee said...

I was assigned you when I joined Pintrest and have been thrilled with everything you post. I especially love the 365 days of slow cooking. It has helped with preparing meals in advance and freezing them. I had 13 women from church and we made 3 meals each. It was wonderful. Looking forward to more of your postings.

I can't pick just a few things to say that are my favorite. I love the decorating ideas, the food and recipes are phenominal. Art is also a passion of mine so I enjoy the great things you share from Gallery Ali. Also, I am a camper and you have given me some awesome tips and simple ways to make it even more enjoyable.

ChRiS said...

ok this isn't fair has been way to many favorites, but 1st thing that popped into my mind was your talent for drawing shown on your chaulkboard wall.......and your sign tutors are always a favorite.....ty been a fun 8 days!!!

Sam I Am...... said...

This is tough because I love so much of what you do. It's like we have the same taste but I don't have your imagination and creativity.
I have to say though that the porch shelves are the bomb! Especially since you taught me how to hang things on brick! I will always be grateful for that one!
I think I wold like to win your giveaway from your shop most of all! Those all look like treasures! Christmas in the Springtime! Thank you for all your drawings, inspiration, recipes, DIY's and just for being you!

Tamra said...

I love just about everything, but one project really got my attention. I was crazy about the vertical succulent planter. It inspired me to make my own succulent planter. It's so beautiful and easy to care for!

You're amazing Michael!!

Tamra said...

I pinned day eight!

Robin said...

Not sure if my comment posted so just in case...I have share this link on Facebook and shared the pin on Pinterest. I love Inspired by Charm. And as your blog says...endless inspiration.

Eeek, I can't possibly pick my favorite thing you have posted about...there is your quilt and gathering the material for it square by square, and all your Pinterest posts...and your chalkboard - so creative! I also love all your signs.

I pinned the Favorite Things photo! So many cute things in that collection. Your gift shop is the best.

Tamara said...

Where to start, first I'm new to this whole Pinterest/blog following business. Second, 365 days of slow cooking (speaks for itself) as a working young person with a busy social schedule I appreciate the opportunity to fit a good meal in there too. I'm making Baked Potatoe Soup tonight! (no bacon). Second, I'm a city girl, gone mountain girl back to city. I've developed a passion for gardening and all your neat shelving ideas for gardening are perfect for my city patio. Takes me back to my recent mountain roots. Keep up the great work and congratulations on all the success what an incredible accomplishment. Cheers. tamara.boozell@gmail.com

addy said...

Oh my gosh, by far my favorite project was when you made the sign for your guest room. We've been looking for a home to buy, and that is tagged as my very first project for the place when we find it. Not sure what mine will look like, I want it to go with the house, but I am in love with the one you did!

just posted a tweet about your giveaway. Love you on pintrest. I am a avid gardener and I love all you outdoor ideas. Of course your recipes are pretty fabulous also. But my favorite would have to be the Enchanted Fairy Garden. I love fairies and would love to try this in my yard. Looks easy enough for me to do by myself. Keep up the great work.

Back in April, you showed how you made a hanging hens & chicks !! I LOVED it and knew my Mom would too ! It took me longer to complete it than I had hoped but she loved her slightly belated Mother's Day gift. It now hangs proudly on her "barn" Thank you so much for sharing the idea !~!

I love your blog and the variety you offer (I get bored when the blog is only one subject). Many thanks for the chance to win these great goodies from your shop. And, are you kidding....we LOVE giveaways!! Thanks so much for so many days with a chance to win!

April was in CT now CA said...

What don't I love? Your blog is definitely one of my favorites. If I had to pick it would be the curtains you did in one of the guest rooms that are hanging on old nails. I wish I had a place in my home to put something just like it and I adore the red and white fabric you used.

I just love your blog! What fun the last couple days have been on here. I just loved your post on the blueberry waffles and also the strawberry malt ball cake! Have to try them both, soon! Keep up the great blog work!

Oh oh oh! I totally l*o*v*e the chalkboard wall! It totally allows for all kinds of creativity AND makes room for the creative spirit to move! What fun! I gotta get this going in my own little nest. :-)

Many thanks for SO many great ideas!

And this is NOT bribery, but if you end up picking my entry, I'd like to knit something for you in return...an alpaca hat or muffler for next winter, perhaps?

Thanks for making the days challenges easier to deal with and my life so much more charming.

I follow you on Pinterest, as well! Asking me to choose just one favorite from so many great ideas is tough, but I am going to have to go with the 'Tulip Tutorial' you recently did for Mother's Day. Adding your own touches to grocery-store bouquets is genius, and I love the more organic, less structured look. Oh, I also really enjoyed your "rise and shine" sign-painting tutorial. I've been painting for *years* and learned new tips and techniques from that one! Oh, and I loved.... Well, you get the picture! I learn/love so much from you. Thank you!

My favorite design post is the one about the making of a sing.

Laina @ Vibrant Serenity said...

I think my favorite post of yours was the reveal of the guest room re-do. I adore the yellow walls and the curtains were amazing. Then you went and topped it off with the handpainted sunburst sign. You are a genius!

My favourite project of yours was your incredibly detailed distressed wood sign. It turned out beautiful - and vinegar?! I'd never have thought of that before.

I love all your planter ideas, but your vintage sign project was amazing. I love how you aged the piece.

Love your blog Michael and have enjoyed very much reading about how much your Mom is a part of your life in several of your posts.. she is lucky to have such and a good son!!

Wendy R. said...

I found your blog after pinning more than a few recipes from here! The greatest thus far though as been the nutella rolls with cream cheese frosting - people went nutty for those! Can't wait to keep trying some of your new recipes.

Dianne said...

There is simply so way to pick out a favourite item.
You think you found it and then you see something else you fall in love with and just have to have.
This goes on for a long while and then you remember the first item and you are totally confused.

You are an amazing talent!

Thanks so much for all your inspiration.

Valerie said...

The Hens and Chicks vertical planter! I am going to make my husband build one a.s.a.p. for our large Hens and Chicks collection!

I really enjoy following you on Pinterest and your blog because I find it inspiring that someone from our small town is SO talented and thinks outside the box. I enjoy reading all of your posts but especially enjoy when they are personal because I always find myself relating to your frustration...Keep up all your hardwork! You are an inspiration!

Meli said...

You always have such cute fabric ideas. From the pillows to the curtains you shared on pinterest today. I've been inspired to make something all my own, with bold colors that I never would have thought to use.

Jackie said...

I loved your sunshine wood sign project!! Your colors were perfect :) Thanks for a chance, Smiles Jackie

Marsha said...

It's pretty impossible to pick just one favorite because I love your sign painting, quilting, and baking adventures. However, I did particularly loved it when you refashioned a vintage ladder into a wall shelf.

I actually liked it so much that I shamelessly stole the idea from you and used it my guest bedroom: http://carolinacountryliving.blogspot.com/2012/01/house-tour-guest-room.html :)

Thank you for a wonderful week of giveaways--this has been so much fun!
