    Love your lamp – message board makeover. What a great giveaway.
    I would follow you but I just have a PAS (plain and simple) phone so not able to add apps. but best of luck to everyone else.

  2. Downloaded app, but when trying to “create account”, I type in my email address and password (and confirm password), try to hit the “sign up” button, but it’s grayed out and will not allow me to join. What am I doing wrong?

  3. Welcome Christy!! We are thrilled to have you join us ! Certainly humbled by all the nice things you said about bHome. Our growing community of h & g lovers is growing daily – we are excited not only to welcome you, but your readers!

  4. Hi Christy welcome to bhome! Glad to see you here. It makes it so much easier to follow along our favorite stops.

  5. You are so creative….I love your cute stand and thanks for reminding me about BHome. I thought it was only an Iphone app…I’m happy to see that it’s available for droid’s!

  6. Welcome to bHome Christy! bHome is an amazing community and I’m so glad to be a part of it!
    P.S……love that message board!

  7. I downloaded the bHome app on my iPad but to be totally honest I haven’t used it yet. What little I saw looked impressive but my gosh between G+, Bloglov’n, Facebook, Instagram, yadda yadda when is enough social media apps enough and how do you know which ones to focus your energy on?

    But dang, I love your upcycled lamp and I seem to be on a roll winning Wendi’s book giveaway.

    • Ha ha I am SO with you, Marie!! You hate to miss out on the next big thing though you know? As a blogger, this requires very little time from me…it just pulls all my posts, Tweets, pins and IG posts that I would be doing anyway into one feed for followers, which is pretty cool. The more I play around with it, the more I like it. Congrats on winning Wendi’s book giveaway! 🙂

  8. Welcome to the hive!!!! I love that memo board!!! Such s great idea!

  9. Congratulation, Christy! You are a great addition to bHome. I like to browse bHome in the evening via my ipad and it has introduced me to a few “new to me” blogs.

  10. Wow…I love the chalkboard with the lamp base…how so very clever and creative,not to mention beautiful!…..Welcome to the bHome community Christy….it is a wonderful, wonderful community!!!

  11. Congrats! I just saw this on Pinterest and had to stop by and leave a note. Looking forward to seeing you on the new app!

  12. Congrats on joining bHome! 🙂

    Hi, I love that message stand from a lamp base! Great idea! I hit favorite on the bHome app for your blog and no message or link popped up to join the giveaway, was I supposed to do something else?

    Cathy 🙂
