My 1st Anniversary

my perfect living room: serena & lily catalog summer 2011
It was one whole year ago today that I launched Lotus & Fig. It's probably obvious by my 111 or so posts that I've learned how time-consuming blogging can be. I've also learned that it takes a while to figure how you want things to be, from design, to format, to voice. These things are all still very much under consideration. But this has certainly been fun. 

A hearty thank you to my followers and commenters for your support and interest. An extra thanks to my first follower, Peggy at Creative Influences, for all your advice. And to Meredith at Making a Dream Home for blog-buddying with me. I'm still working on some of your suggestions, namely, a house tour of my apartment. That was supposed to be my anniversary post, but it has been waaaayyyy too hot to clean the place up and photograph it. Plus write the post, etc. 

So....Belated 1st Anniversary House Tour post to come. Onward!

UPDATED: Just want to add another special thanks to screencappers in general. My posts used to have credits as many of you prefer. But a lot of screencappers closed their sites in the past few months and I decided to remove credits so as not to point fingers directly at any of you. If not for your passion and labor, many many everyday people would not be able to a review and study the detail in set design. If you see your work on my site (or think you do) please accept my thanks a million times over for your excellent work. If it weren't good, I would not have used it. If you want a credit/link added back, just let me know. :smooch:
