a friendship made in blogland: FHD and TPH
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 by {darlene}

I really had to resist typing FHD + TPH = BFF; because I rarely show restraint. But, I didn’t want to freak Angela out. You know how many stalkers there are in blogland!

For those of you who do not know Angela of The Painted House, I am so excited to introduce you to this chica.

First of all, she is super multi-talented.

Secondly, she is super witty.

Thirdly, she is a gifted artist.

And her blog will inspire you, there is no doubt about that!











I am constantly delighted at the friendships that can be fostered in blogland. The creative and lovely people who blog, just so happen to be creative and lovely in person too. Talented bloggers help you to grow and be inspired, and good friends should help you to grow and stretch and think.

Angela has done just that. I have ditto-ed her interiors. And she even inspired me to redecorate my husband’s office {on-a-dime} as a surprise.

I was breezing through her neck of the woods last Thursday, and she was gracious enough to meet me in downtown Atlanta.

Meeting Angela was a joy. She was sweet and kind and lovely and fun. Angela, you inspire me to take a risk {maybe even two; I am working on it!}. And not only that, you share fantastic inspiration/links with me, like this one, which had me and my husband staying up to the silly hours of the night…. giggling like school children.

Here is a little peak at our FHD/TPH morning together:

in downtown, catching breakfast

I know you will be inspired over at TPH. I believe she is giving a sneak preview of her loft today……

  • I was thinking the same thing, = BFF. :) Thank you for such a sweet post!!! And, I was planning my loft peek for tomorrow but since you said today, who was I to hold back?

    That is hilarious about you and hubby with awkward family photos–we did the same thing one night recently. It’s sooooo nice to have a good laugh…at someone else’s expense. :)

    You are a DOLL! And, btw, just loving this blog facelift.

  • Dar, I love the absolute realness of this post. Love it, love it, love it. Love the photos – your humor gets me laughing out loud. Two beauties!! Going over to visit Angela now.
