Dear Joni,

OMG! I opened my email this morning to find out that you, Joni of one of my all time favorite blogs: Cote de Texas, had written the most wonderful post about me and my blog. I am overwhelmed. Your kindness and amazing support mean the world to me. I hope everyone takes the time to hop on over to your beautiful blog and read all of your fabulous posts about design in Houston, your Top Ten Designers Series, and all of the beautiful and comprehensive posts you create about interior design, antiques, and your own awesome home.

I feel so lucky to be part of this very supportive medium that informs, entertains, supports, and amuses us all. And people like you are the reason I keep going! Thanks so much Joni! And to all of you that come and read my little blog. I so appreciate you all.

I saw her post earlier this morning, and wondered if it was a "surprise" for you. I really enjoyed seeing the photos of your home and your work! You are both amazing women!

Katie, I was so happy to hear more about you! I am very impressed. Please check my art site. I love working with interior designers!

Joni's an incredible woman, as are you! And both so talented, too!

Cote de Texas said...

Katie - thank you so much!!!! You didn't have to do this! seriously - but thank you. I had so much fun reading your blog this weekend from the first to the last. We started out at exactly the same time - we've both come a long way. Except I must tell you that your blog has been consistently good through the year, while mine on the other hand - the first few months were real stinkers!!!

Thanks again so much!

Hi Katie. Just thought I'd mention that I discovered this morning I had posted about your former black and white kitchen with that amazing hood and the awesome dimond floors. I think maybe it was my second post back in January. I didn't know it belonged to you. You are so talented! Smiles, LC

All of Joni's praise is well deserved!
Thank you for inspiring us all!

I found you from Joni too and cannot wait to look around your site;)


Renee Finberg said...

Wow, I have been designing all my life, and I told Joni that you are one of the only designers that I would have zero anxiety or control issues with.
I could go away, and come back to what ever you came up with, and I would feel at home.
You have such 'big time talent' !!!!

Best Regards,
