Lu La Belles first Contest!!!!!!

Ive finally found a way to showcase all the pictures of your beautiful homes that you have been sending me.
We all love to share pictures of our homes, ideas and accomplishments, so with that in mind I'm going to start a new section on my website that will highlight a different home every month.
Lyndsay at www.shabbysuite.com has been doing this for some time, her site is great! It has been such an inspiration for me. (My house was the shabby suite of the month for march of 2007)
I love sites like because we cant seem to get enough pictures of the decorating style we all love in magazines. (with the exception of Romantic Country magazine, this magazine is wonderful and is giving us what we want.)
Ive been trying to figure out a way to do this on my web site and slowly but surely I'm learning a little more about this thing called a computer, :)
I found this great site that will let me to do really creative things.
Its an online service called Slide.
This site allows me to download photos and then present them as a slide show for you to see. (scroll down and see the vintage jeweled slide presentation below)
I think for now this is going to work great, or at least until my computer skills improve and I learn something new. :P
So start sending me the best shots of your favorite rooms in your home, show us your decorating ideas and accomplishments and all the things you love, maybe your pictures will be showcased here for everyone to see and learn a few new things.
(Sherry get that chandelier hung! :)

Now for the contest part,
Before I post all the beautiful pictures your going to send me, I need a category and a name for the category to list those pictures under on my website.
Put those creative thinking caps on and help me come up with something to call this new section.( for example Lyndsay has the shabby suite of the month)
If your entry is chosen you will win one of my vintage jeweled picture frames that I design and create.
email your entries to www.mylulabelles.com
you can also send me pictures of your home there.
Hope to hear from you soon,

readers to miss this~

What a great idea! Just hopped over from Kimbery Ryan Art so I don't really qualify to pitch in here but here's what I like: Cottage Corners. I'll definitely be back to see what you're up to. Blessings... Polly
