Now what?

So today I have been.........
I am guessing not alone there.....
Been cooking...............
Been doing a little of this too......
Pretty soon will be my one year Blogging anniversary...
323 posts
13,000 comments later.......
I am so happy with the balance I have found in blogging.  Took me awhile but I got it down now....
But what will 2011 bring, to you, for me, perhaps to newcomers along the way?
I have NO CLUE!
There is always new fun decor and vignettes to share....

I just can't get rid of these cute bottles.

New beginnings

Even Mr. Roo is wondering what will be....

I thank my loyal followers, most of which I have had since the very beginning. How lucky I am indeed.
Reflecting on 2010, it has been a great year all the way around.
If you recall my OPRAH gig, failure big video debut?  That was the most fun I had being silly, creative and just being myself.  The name of my show  was going to be Debbiedoos Blogging and Blabbing, hence that will be my new 2011 blog name.  No changes on your end, I should still come up just the same.
I would love to hear some of your favorite blog reads? What I mean is who are some of your favorite BLOGGERS?  I want to add some new ones to my list, per some recommendations.
I feel like I don't really get out of my comfort zone too much.
I am having fun with my new camera, and will be pursuing that for sure.  Do you know any good photography blogs?  In the meantime, let's get through ole MAN
 and Hopefully be refreshed soon.

Joining Marty, anything goes this week!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Debbie! Ours was one of the best ever but it's still not over. My son's GF didn't make it so she's coming over tomorrow to open her presents. After it's all done I'll put a post up:)

It's almost my 1 year blog-aversary also, hard to believe it's been so long.

I knew you were coming up on your one year anniversary because I am at the end of January. I am not sure what the heck I am going to blog about and that is making me anxious. I have a few projects, but other than that I'm stuck! I have been cleaning and taking down all the decorations today and am pooped. Get back at it tomorrow.

First of all, what was that food that you showed? It looked delicious and I want to know what it is and how I can get me some! And I loved this whole post. I think this is such a reflective time and it is good to think back and look forward all at once! I've been so thrilled to have gotten to know you and I'm overjoyed that you didn't stay away too long! :-)

Hi Debbie. Love the new look and name. I started out with the name It's A Sweet Life, and then changed to Simplify. I wish I hadn't. I have toyed with going back to It's A Sweet Life. But I am afraid to lose readers with the changing. I hope 2011 is a fantastic year for all!!! Happy New Year!

First: thank you for the comment you left on my blog...I appreciate it!

Second: a blog I L.O.V.E.for reasons I can't *really* explain, I think it's her house and she makes me laugh, oh and her kids are cute, (and she started a photography business in the last year or so, no advice really though, just ideas for shoots/stills maybe) is:

'whatever' -

and for photography I'd suggest

Meadowbrook Farm -

Again, I don't see that she necessarily gives photography advice per se, but she *does* photography as a business and has great photos of her home/surroundings and her photo shoots.

Anyway, maybe you already know of these blogs, but I thought I'd throw them out there just in case.
Happy reading and I love all the color on your 'new' blog!! :D

Here's to 2011....

I love your blog too, Debbie. You make everything seem do-able or at least attempt-able. You're a real person with good taste and a budget.

Some of my favorite bloggers are JennyMatlock@blogspot; PulsipherPredilections; and Sue's News, Views 'n Muse; and any of the three blogs done by Jake on my bloglist. These are all people who are funny, smart and gifted with the written word. They always make me laugh.

Hi Debbie
Congratulations on your one year anniversary and over 300 posts. I made it to almost 200 posts this year. I am surprised I managed to do that many! This is the most I have done in one year in almost four years of blogging. I don't think I have the stamina to do a post almost every day!:-) My cousin's son has done about 400 this year. He set out to do 365 posts in the shortest time he could manage. He is a wonderful writer! He comments at the Back Porch, under the name W.C.C.

I recommend Darren Rowse for photography tips, etc.

A second site with D.R. is found at this link:

Happy Blogging!

I love the new name, Debbie. If you are looking for an inspiring photo blog, I would suggest A New England Life or Mille Fiori Favoriti. If you are looking for photography instructional blogs, I'd suggest Pioneer Woman or Domestic Princess in Training.

Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. It is always fun to visit you.

Happy New Year! La

I love the Frosty bottles, I have been trying to collect those for almost 2 years and I have only found 1. My maiden name is Frost and when my daddy died almost 2 years ago, I found the first bottle and I can't find them anywhere now, several years ago at a Swap Meet I found a cooler (like an old coke box) that was Frosty and I didn't get it, I have kicked myself sooo many times now for leaving it behind!
