Jackie Blue Home

Not one to usually toot my own horn, I did want to let you know that if you were the slightest bit interested in my blog about my new family room furniture, you may want to visit the Jackie Blue Home blog. Written by published author Jackie Von Tobel, she has taken the story of my family room and critiqued it picture by picture, pillow by pillow. Oy! At least Jackie's comments are quite nice and flattering compared to the anonymous commenter who obviously wasn't so enamored with my room! Oh well, you can't please everyone, but at least I pleased Jackie!

If you aren't familiar with Jackie or her delightful blog, she lives and writes in Las Vegas and has a new book coming out any day now. Tittled "The Design Directory of Window Treatments" the book features Jackie's own wonderfully drawn illustrations of draperies and other soft goods. There is another book by Jackie that is already in publication: "From Design to Delivery" and a third book about bedding is slated to be published next year. Besides being a self described "accidental author" she is also an interior designer with her own firm: Plush Home. Her blog chronicles her experiences in getting the new book completed and lots of other design topics that interest her. She also has a web site that you might want to visit.

Jackie and I have exchanged a host of friendly e-mails and she is a sweet and genteel woman. If you don't yet have "Jackie Blue Home" on your favorite blog list, I'm sure after visiting it, you will want to add it. She's a total delight!

Thanks again, Jackie, for all your kind words! I am completely flattered.
Joni

  4. OMG get that huge picture of me and my three chins off the page - you're going to scare people!!!! You are so sweet to mention me after I peaked into your room without permission. We all know you have great style and are a class act. My husband will get a huge kick out of you calling me sweet and demure - I can see him laughing himself sick right now!! We really need to get to know each other better!!
    A Million Thanks, Jackie

  6. Jackie, I love this picture! There's not triple chin, just a shadow there, easily erased on photoshop, hahaha!!! The way to get rid of a double chin in a picture is to look at the camera and stick your head way out and point your chin down, viola - it's gone. I do that all the time and it works. AND you have the most beautiful blue eyes!!!

  12. Hi Joni
    I think that Jackie did a great posting on your new family room. She added more depth of information and gave us another opportunity to feast our eyes on your wonderful design taste. I am also looking forward to the publication of her book. Great posts by the two of you and Kudos to you both.

  16. I've recently discovered your blog and I just love every bit of it! Although, not a professional by any stretch of the imagination, I love to decorate my house. Your designs are very much like the ones I like. I'm hanging around here for a while to gather some inspiration... btw, I'm not far from you, I'm between Houston and Galveston!
