Thanks to each and every blogger who linked up to the Decorating Dilemmas Party on Wednesday. It was a smaller party, which is nice because I think most participants did a great job visiting around and offering encouragement and feedback on Dilemmas and Solutions. The smaller party gave me more time to enjoy my twenty-fauxth birthday with my family.
There were some unique dilemmas, like Paula's shadeless lamp. And there were also some dilemmas that lots of people can relate to, like Danya's corner fireplace. I LOVE how everyone offered thoughtful and genuine advice for each Dilemma presented.
There were also several great Solutions featured, but my two favorites were Pam's triumph over the pink tile fireplace and Kendall's patio progress. These were exciting for me to see because both ladies had linked up those areas as Dilemmas several months ago. They took the suggestions they were given and ran with them...and now they can "wow" everyone!
If you missed linking up this round, check back in soon. I'll announce a May date in the next week or so. If you've linked up recently, start making your plans for updates now so you can share with us at the next Show Me the Progress Party.
As far as fantastic links from around Blogland, I found so many this week that I had to split them up and save some to share with you next week. I love the creativity I see!
