Comment Replies That Never Arrived
Recently, I became aware that the hundreds of replies I’ve made to comments left on posts over the last few months were never delivered to the lovely person who left the comment. After spending several hours the last few days trying to figure it out, I finally decided to check with my hosting company on the slight chance they could help. Turns out, they had some box checked that kept them all from being sent. Waaaaa Yep, makes me want to cry. That was to prevent my server from sending out spam messages. Huh?
In any case, if you’ve left a comment before asking a question or just wondered if I replied, yes I did and I’m sorry you didn’t get it. Please feel free to check any past post where you may have expected a reply comment. It’s probably there, humming quietly in the dark, wondering why it never got sent to you.
The problem has now finally been corrected so when I reply back, you should get an email with the reply unless you “uncheck” the box indicating you do not want a reply. Thank goodness it’s fixed. Wish I could make it retroactive, but I can’t.
Okay, on to something beautiful!
Decorate Your Banister for Christmas
Every year my friend, Joy decorates her Christmas banister in the most amazing way! It takes a good bit of time and patience to create this gorgeous banister but the results are amazing!
She wraps her garland with lots of sparkly lights and layers on the ornaments.
Joy shared all the details on how she creates her banister in this previous post: Beautiful Christmas Banister
Lizy at Just Dip It in Chocolate (don’t you love that blog name!) was inspired by Joy’s beautiful Christmas banister and created her own version. This is what I so love about blogging…how we inspire each other, then take the ball and run. Inspired by Joy’s Christmas banister, Lizy decided to go with a “candy” theme for her’s and chose colors that resembled peppermints in “all shapes and forms.”
It’s truly a fantasy come to life. Can you imagine how a child’s face would light up upon seeing this? Lizy shared how she made her beautiful banister and what you would need to create your own here: Mi Escalerita-Happy Banister
Now why am I craving peppermint candy? Ummm, I’m sure I have some around here somewhere. Actually, I have some I bought just for a Christmas tablescape but I’m not sure it will make it to the tablescape now.
Okay, I’m off to decorate something. I’m way behind but feeling inspired by all these shiny, pretty banisters!
Pssst: The seasonal footer at the bottom of BNOTP is loaded up with Christmas inspiration. Enjoy!
