Fairy Blogmothers Revisited....


They don't have magic wands...

They don't sprinkle fairy dust...

And they usually don't run around saying things like
bibbity, bobbity boo
{unless they've had one too many, if ya get my drift}

But they are always there in a pinch

to offer a kind word

and support

to encourage

and to inspire.

Say hello to Fairy Blogmother #1, Dawn Edmonson of The Feathered Nest


Dawn came to my rescue recently to help with a top-secret project
that I'm just bursting to share with you
{but can't for a little while longer}.



She's been there since day one, and if not for her,
my lowly little blog might have never found an audience.

Same thing with Fairy Blogmother #2, Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs Vintage


Back when I started my blog,
I didn't know any better than to have
unbridled chutzpah, so I mailed Theresa to say
"Hey, take a look at my blog and see what you think!"

Had I known then what a big whoop she really is, I would have been
far too intimidated to ever make such a request!

But over the past year and a half,
I've come to know that she's every bit as generous and kind
as she is talented. After all, there's a reason she's called Sweet T!

And this coming week, I'm headed to the
in Driftwood, Texas to photograph Theresa
and the other amazing dealers set up at the big show.

Come join us!


Fairy Blogmothers.

Both of mine have always been there to leave a kind comment,
or promote my latest giveaway, or introduce me to a wider audience.

I'll bet you have one or two, if you stop and think about it.
Those folks who have gone above and beyond in helping you along the way
as you enter the big, scary world of blogdom.

Who are your  Fairy Blogmothers?
Think about it, and give them a great big old cyber hug today!

Happy Weekend!

You have two wonderful Fairy Blogmothers...both who have also been so kind to me with their support and lovely comments. We are so lucky to be part of this kind and generous community. Looking forward to hear what your big project is all about! I am sure it will be fabulous!

Farmgirl Paints said...

What a sweet post Anne. I'd say that Meg from Shabby Blogs helped me alot. She featured my blog on her huge site and sent a lot of traffic my way. Thank you Meg:)

gail said...

I'm back...I wanted to hurry up and post that so my comment could be right under Laura's. But I wanted to add that so many people have helped me and encouraged me along the way. These are all truly generous and kind and giving people.

So many have helped me in one way or another.
I would say my biggest cheerleader is LaDolfina.

Linda said...

Lovely post! Sweet Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered was my first fairy blogmother~ she was kind enough to feature me in a post...she helped me get started! I have been blessed with many fairy blogmothers...and I enjoy being a fairy blogmother now, too! Don't you love blogging friends?

KarenSue said...

You are mine for sure and Linda from Itsy Bits and Pieces is another. You both help me without knowing it.
Can't wait to see the surprise!
Enjoy your weekend,

Melanie said...

I would have to say that you and Maria are two of my fairy God... sisters! (Seeing as I am probably older than both of you!;)))

So many lovely women have helped me weave my way through the blogworld. Each and every one a blessing in my life.

I was thinking about you the other day... hoping to chat with you again soon! ;)

Love to you, sweet friend!
Melanie

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

:-) Great post.... I agree, those who helped us when we were little bloggie babies are just the sweetest... I have sooo many...and still chat often.

Dawn is such a sweetheart, isn't she? I just bought my Paperclay to whip up some of her sweet little birdies. I LOVE her easy to follow tutorials. Can't wait to get going on these.

Warm hugs,
Spencer

Air Kiss said...

Ah Anne.. the perfect opportunity to sincerely thank you again for what you've done. ♥ So with that said, I consider YOU a dear fairy blog-mother! You were the first blogger to feature my new little blog and make me feel very special and for that - I can't thank you enough. You have such a big heart and it shows in all you do! Hugs to you!

Meri Wiley said...

Wow, I consider anyone and everyone who visits me a fairy blogmother, then. I've gotten so much help and encouragement from every single person which is why I have my quarterly giveaways. I'll never be able to thank everyone enough, but if I can give them some happiness with a custom sculpt, then I wanna' do it smiling. Here's hoping you'll follow me and have your own chance to win....I've got my winter giveaway coming soon!

Hugs,
Meri

It's me said...

I would have to say Theresa Cano is my Fairy Blog Mother as well! I'd never even heard of a blog till Theresa told me about one!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Anne,
Great post. Where would we be without our fairyblogmothers? Not blogging that's for sure. It is so important for all bloggers to encourage people just starting out. It's pretty darn intimidating to put it all out 'there' & having support from great ladies like Dawn & Theresa makes all the difference in the world. Your a bit of a blog mother yourself my friend! Lisa
PS I remember when Dawn introduced you on her blog. Wow, time flys.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Fairy Blogmothers! How cute! I have a couple that have given me great encouragement. You have been one to me also!!

Itchin' Stitchin' said...

What a sweet post!!! Ok now open up your arms cause I need to give you a hug :)

clustres said...

You're Fairy Blogmothers are wonderful! (even though I haven't met either in person, I know this is true) But I have to say, YOU must be one of mine because I have watched you since I only knew about Elizabeth House and Curious Sofa!
Pam

Fearless Nester said...

What a fabulous way to describe these wonderful folks that help nurture and support us so generously in blogland! You are so creative Anne, I love it!! Hope you reveal more of your secret project soon, I'm already so happy for you just knowing it must be something really exciting! ~Lili

A Cottage Muse said...

Big hug coming your way Anne!!

Also sending one to Jodie and Sandi!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Blondie's Journal said...

I have plenty of Blogmothers...so many sweet ladies that I look up to and hold dear. And of course, give me inspiration. You are right up there, Anne!

XO,
Janie

Diane Cook said...

That is so sweet! I salute your fairy blogmothers =)

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Anne, I deleted my earlier comment, it just didn't sound right to me... three of my Fairy Godmothers who have been with me since almost my first posts are sweet Tracie from My Petite Maison (who referred me to you!), dear Janet from Shabbyfufu and darling Alice from Painted White... these ladies have given me so much inspiration from their blogs, their shops, and encouraging comments they leave on my blog... I too adore ALL blogger ladies!... Fun post!... xoxo Julie Marie

Vicki said...

This was the sweetest post! Dawn's was the first blog I ever bookmarked and read daily. I found your blog through her announcement :) I followed you both for ages and now that I have my own blog you both come and comment and lift me up. I love it. You are two of MANY fairy blogmothers I have right now - so blessed by all the veteran bloggers who follow, comment and email me. I can't list them all but know I am extremely grateful!((HUGS)) I hope to return the favor someday.

Anji Johnston said...

Everyone is a fairy blogmother to me - all so kind and generous in their comments. I get so excited when I see that I have one!
I, unfortunately, could be termed as a 'fairly absent blogmother'. I am never consistent with my posts or comments but I am trying. One day I hope to rise to the ranks of blogdom and become a real blogmother. Just a little more practice and I should be ready in a few years! Any tips? Have a great weekend.

Annesphamily said...

Just a note to say hello! I miss visiting over here. My life is a chaotic mess! I am happy for you to visit the fair and hang out with all the fairygod people you know! Hee Hee! Anne

countrycharisma said...

You are so right! It is because of bloggers like you that any of us have had fairygod bloggers. It is nice to be in a world of encouragers who share so much of their hearts, lives, and creativity. Thank you for being one of them!

Little Leslie said...

Saw your pictures on Antiquechase's blog. great ones. I guess you guys had a good time. One of these days, I'll come to the hill country. I've heard of it for some time, now. Loved the clocks and grain sacks. TAke care, Anne!
Leslie

Diane said...

Anne, I don't know your other friend, but I do know about Dawn and she's just the BEST. Now...what you need, Sweet Lady, is a fairy god mother to get you into that brand new cottage of yours! Where's the fence guy!? Wish I could produce THAT magic wand for you!
Hugs,
Diane

Dorthe said...

Hi sweet Anne,

Polly said...

So sweet!! It is wonderful that other bloggers are so open and generous with their time and advice! You have been just that for me! I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Cindy at Cottage Instincts has also been a doll and has answered several questions for me!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

This is such a nice post Anne! I have met so many wonderful ladies through blogging including you! When ever I'm asked by someone to look at their blog I think me? Why me, little me? I'm so humbled and feel so honored to even be asked. I hope you know how much of an inspiration you have been to me :)
XO

trash talk said...

Having SweetT introduce on her blog was a huge boost for me...otherwise I'd still be sitting and waiting for that first comment. Those that started leaving comments at the first and are now friends (they know who they are) kept me motivated to continue.
Debbie
P.S. I got an inkling/hunch as to what the big surprise is!
P.P.S. When you say SweetT, you gotta say it fast just like we say it when ordering a glassful in a restaurant!

The Feathered Nest said...

Oh Anne. You sweetheart!!!! I guess I just want everyone to enjoy blogging and the precious friendships you can have here....helping a new blogger is like welcoming a new friend into the fold! I'm so glad I found you Anne and you KNOW I want all your dreams to come true ~ hugs and love, Dawn

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Hi Anne, I have to say that you are definitely one of my blog fairy mothers. I was so excited that you would actually visit me and post something. I am sooo new to all of this and you have been so kind and encouraging as so many other bloggers out there have been as well. Talk about meeting the nicest people, and who would think it would be in blogland.

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Oh how sweet!! :) What a blessing your fairy blogmothers have been! :)
