So as I am getting back into posting and recording #4life transitions of creating…..
I fell into a Facebook group for HGTV Fixer Upper Fans. It has been a positive group and very active. All things decor with a strong lean towards Joanna Gaines style of home decorating. It has been a good fix over the winter months and an entertainment diversion as the state of the nation is in flux.
I have added posts, got into the energy of red trucks and tiered stands. Everyone wants white cabinet kitchens and gray walls- but lots of levels of design. Amazingly – with 300K members – a positive group that is supportive and helpful to others in choosing the right backsplash or how to hang curtains etc. Most of my posts did not draw much interaction – but enough to have a conversation or two. Until this last weekend.
I have been working on setting up our front entrance for curb appeal and to welcome guests. Its not my nature to be too generic and trendy – but also finding I am refining my style after many years. I also like a bargain -so trying to find the best for the best price.
I posted one section just to the side of the front entrance that I finished and within one day it had over 400 likes! HUH? It was the simplest thing I have done so far and touched the most in others. That either means it is too mainstream – or just a touch of mainstream with a twist that gets attention. Either way – the likes count etc. has never meant much to me – it doesn’t change what I do, why, or what I believe -but it did feel kinda nice to have the attention.
and a little wider shot….
the potted plants will fill in the spaces, along with a Gnome and fairy garden dish….
more to come…..
