I am so excited about this interview series I’m beginning this month. I’m interviewing bloggers I admire and want to know better.
Thank you so much, Anita ! I am thrilled to be included in your new series…
ON THE BACK PORCH
I’m ready to sit down with you and have a nice chat…
That’s the best!
first picture of my very first post… a lot has changed!
This is my 924th post.. who knew I had so much to say!
Ideas for a spring tablescape book
My most favorite spot in my home is not the kitchen, although it is a close second. The best spot at StoneGable is my swing on the back porch overlooking the fields. I have never done a post on it..maybe this spring. It’s so special to me.
This is something that almost no one in the blogging world knows… I have lost 80 pounds since the end of August! I still have a bit to go but I have completely changed my lifestyle. I swim three or four days a week (I love the water) and have adopted a lo-carb lifestyle. I still love love love to cook… but often don’t eat everything I make.
When I hit my goal weight, I’m going to Paris! Wanna come?
4. How would you describe your style?
Farmhouse/traditional/casual/elegant. How’s that for a style.
We live in a farmhouse inspired home in the beautiful bucolic farmlamd of Lancaster Co. Pa. We have no close neighbors, only farms and lots of fields. We built StoneGable 18 years ago and it is a constant work in progress. I am always decorating or remodeling… for real and in my mind! I have the next 10 years of projects mapped out already. Please don’t tell Bobby… he’s a one project at a time guy.

a tailored guest bedroom… another project
My taste changes like everyone’s does. And I can appreciate most styles and trends. But I am pretty definite about what I can and cannot live with.
My natural tendency is to go towards formality that is casual and easy to live in. Right now we are redecorating our dining room, living room, foyer and front stairs. Casual elegance is my mantra!
I have become a huge fan of light neutrals and whites in the last year or so.
I like to buy classic pieces and fill in with more trendy accents!

5. What are your top 3 favorite posts?
Posts are like children…how can you pick just one?
Here are three that my readers have enjoyed… in no particular order…
Last summer all the kids where home and I set up a coffee bar for them to enjoy when they meandered down in the morning…
I used the same theme and did a fall coffee bar too!
I made these my very first blogging year… and they still are my favorite foodie post! I believe these are my most pinned pictures too.
THE POTTING BENCH
I chose this post just because I love to be out in my garden and at my potting bench on the back porch. My dear readers seem to like my potting bench too!
I hope you will come visit StoneGable… my front door is always open to friends old… and new!
Thanks, Anita! You are welcome to come sit on my front porch for a chat any time at all!
