Blog Features + I Need Your Help


Thank you, so much, to the lovely readers who nominated Dans le Townhouse for both Best DIY Blog and Home Design Blog over at Apartment Therapy's "The Homies".  I'm really flattered!  I hate to ask this . . . . but could at least a few more of you vote for me?  Now that I'm on the list (not something I even thought would happen), I really don't want to be the kid-picked-last-for-dodge-ball equivalent of the blog world.

In other news, Cassity, from Remodelaholic, asked if she could feature the DIY desk Hubby & I made and of course I said, "Yes!"  Who would say no?  She did something awesome and combined all three posts (how I stained the top, how Hubby welded the legs, and the reveal of the finished product) into one super post on her blog.  Find it here.


Amanda, from Our Humble A{Bowe}d, has thrown down the Pinterest-inspired art gauntlet and is creating a fab opportunity to link up any of your art art projects on February 29th (so hurry).  While gathering inspiration, she listed the paintings I did for my Ikea Expedit Hack



Lesley, from Fabulously Flawed, chose our vintage teak, houndstooth upholstered chairs to feature on one of her Super Sweet Thursday Par-tays (a linky-good time for showing off your DIY projects). 


Plus, an oldie but a goodie, my DIY felted wool Billy Buttons were featured on Craft Gossip!


Thanks to everyone for this motivational blog love!  It is definitely inspiring me to keep making this blog better and better.  And it is also inspiring me to get off my duff and make something.  Hey, can I nominate my readers for being the best readers?  We could call it "The Readies". . .

    1. I think whoever is last, esp. if it's me, needs a big shout-out and should win some kind of prize. Apartment Therapy: show a little love for the little guys.

  11. Thanks to everyone who is, has, or will vote for Dans le Townhouse. Although you can only vote once for a specific blog, you can vote for numerous blogs. So don't worry if there's more than one blog you like - vote away!

    And thanks for the support :)
