Design Inspirations from #DesignBlogConf 2016

Some of the wonderful design books & resources from brought back from
Design Bloggers Conference, March 6 - 8, 2016, in Atlanta, Georgia

Today's post is all about
sharing with you 
inspiring designs
bloggers, designers and sponsors
this spring's
Design Bloggers Conference!

Have you ever
hoped to meet someone "famous?"
Someone you admire and esteem
she or he creates such beautiful vignettes
and decorates with such panache?
A designer who creates
most beautiful bouquets
which cause your heart to skip a beat?
Whose work you'd love to
and recreate in your own home
and DO?!

While at conference, I was able to meet 
Courtney Allison
French Country Cottage.
Courtney writes from her 1940's era cottage in Northern California
beautifully set tables ready for a garden party,
tips on decorating
between redecorating projects in her home
she also finds time to bring 
her readers wonderful recipes.
Her photographs and photography
are also inspiring
and take her readers off into blissful daydreams...

It was an honor
to finally meet Courtney Allison,
the person behind
the blog!
She is just as personable as comes across
in her posts!
Courtney shared blogging tips for writing one's blogposts
essential information for working
with vendors.

Please stop by and visit her blog if you haven't already.
