Somebody pinch me!

We are honored!!!

sample 057

We Thank God for this opportunity.

Our little Dustylu Blogspot is featured in the June issue of

Romantic Homes.

I can’t believe it! We started blogging in January because my dear friend Jennifer (thank you love)

told me to…lol.. and since

then we have met

some fascinating friends in these few short months.

Some exciting things have come about. This being one of them.

We are featured with some other incredible  bloggers, Jen of The Cottage Nest,

Kim from Twice Remembered, Chic Home, and Duchess Fare. 

Congratulations talented ladies!!

I can’t believe what they said either.  “We inform our readers how to turn their homes into works of Art”.

Whaat!!??

For those emails questioning my full name yes,

my name is Mary Lou but, my nickname is and always has been Lu or Lulu!  hehe

I keep opening the magazine and wiping my eyes to see if I am seeing things right… hehe

I can’t stop laughing either. hehe 

Its is so cool to know that we have people who are interested in our work.

We feel so grateful.

Thanks a million

Always,

Signature
