I don’t remember exactly when or how I discovered Marian’s blog, but I do know she has been an inspiration to me and to so many other followers – demonstrating what is possible when you pursue your dreams with grace and perseverance.
My favorite features of Miss Mustard Seed include the valuable painting information, beautiful pictures, upholstering tips, sewing ideas, and small business advice which Marian so generously shares.
Besides authoring Miss Mustard Seed, Marian also is a freelance writer for HGTV.com and sells her finds and creations in three retail spaces. I honestly don’t know how she does it all!
A bit of trivia which many of you may not know is that Marian and I share a “color connection.”
Not long after I found Miss Mustard Seed, Marian shared pictures of her newly repainted living and dining rooms. Her color of choice was SW Aria Ivory. As most of my house is painted with this same color, I left a comment telling her how much I too loved SW Aria Ivory.
The irony of this story is that unbeknownst to either of us, Marian had used my living room which had been featured in Women’s Day Budget Decorating, as her inspiration for her color choice. She had received a copy of the magazine from her mother-in-law and saved the article.
After visiting my blog, Marian quickly figured out the connection and was kind enough to let me know about our color bond. In fact, she recently posted about her plans to repaint the blue wall in her beautiful dining room with SW Aria Ivory.
I hope you will stop by Miss Mustard Seed to learn how to – as Marian’s blog title says – “move mountains in your home.” I know you will be so glad you did!
