Your gown is divine! Maybe you can wear it to Silver Bella also? I'll pack mine, too. Well, some of the girls are calling my name.....I think they are going to do the limbo....too much magic punch, I think!


What a fun party that was! I would love to have a Christmas party! I like my Christmas things most of all! What a pretty dress, have to party hopping again today. And stop advertising you Sept giveaway, I want to win and you are hurting my odds!(kidding!-sort of). Thanks again for hosting!



I know,I'm late for party,but I'll be glad you visit my house and add it to the list.the party was great idea.nice to meet you:)

I thoroughly enjoyed your "Romantic Country- what do you LOVE about your home?" party. I learned a lot and have fresh new inspirations to incorporate in my own home. Thank you so much!

Karla, Your party was so fun yesterday. I saw so many beautiful homes. It almost makes up for not finding that magazine yet. I've been to all of my favorite magazine places. dang it! I'd love to do this again at Christmas!
Your blue gown is probably my favorite dress of the ones you have made so far!


Your gown is divine!! I love all your dress creations!
Ive had fun at the ball! so much dancing!!

Ok, did I miss you mentioning it or not? Did your photographers actually show up when you thought they would??

Loved all the pretty pictures and links for your party!!


That water color leaf is AMAZING! Congrats to the winners!


Karla, it was so much fun yesterday! And I got to "visit" with so many people. My husband couldn't believe how many people around the world participated! (Just give a woman an idea and she can change the world!!!). I would love to do a holiday party because I actually do decorate a lot more. Your muffins sounded delicious! Would you post the recipe? (if you have time)
For some reason I was just thinking this morning that one of your beautiful paper gowns would look really pretty framed in my pink guest bathroom! (It's the only room that I'm allowed all pastels and girly things!!!). Thanks for yesterday!!!


Thanks for hosting such a wonderful party Karla! It was SO much fun!!

And your blue ballgown is exquisite!!


The dress is just adorable! and your blog too!


Thank you so much for hosting this soirée. I got more ideas in one afternoon for embellishing my home than I would have in 6 months just looking at magazines. I can't wait until the holiday party. I love Christmas and everything about it! Thanks again and now I have a new friend!



Oh and one more thing...How do I sign up for the giveaway?



Hi Karla.....it's always such a pleasure to visit your blog! You've been a busy, busy, busy little beaver! I love all your ball gowns and your house is a treasure. The house party is a great idea. Maybe I can participate next time :).

The Watercolor is truly gorgeous and you paint very well.

It's a beautiful gown for the ball! I've never been here before, and it seems like I've been missing out, so will be looking around for a bit-great blog!



wow! What a turnout! I didnt post because I dont have a romantic corner in my house! But I see some people just put their favourite spots in their house. I went to the ball today too, but yesterday I put up some pics close to my house that I like - does that count? lol.

Now, get some sleep!

I think a Christmas party sounds like a great idea! It was fun to get so many new readers and visit their blogs in turn. I'm still going through the party guest list finding inspiration and beauty wherever I go! Thanks for being a great hostess. :)

I love your dress. Glad you could join us for the ball. Thanks for all the other treats too.


Karla, what a great party! Both the one in "blogland" and the one you had at home.

I would be thrilled about the "what you love about your Holiday Home" party...yes, I would!

Always so much fun to visit, the best is really sugarwings.:) (I really want grandbabies of my own!)

Hi Karla,
I just got home from the "#1 Christmas Decorators Warehouse in Texas".. spend over $450! YIKES! So YES, count me in for the "What do you LOVE about your Holiday Home?" party. After today's shopping trip, my holiday home will need as much exposure as it can get! LOL!!!!


Looking at pictures of your family at Karla's Cottage reminded me that: one of the things I love about my home are albums with family photos showing celebrations at Oak Rise Cottage over the years!


hi karla! i'm still dancing!!! i took a break to have one of those mmmmm/mm/healthy tasty muffins!
your dress is absolutely delightful! it is a pleasure to meet you!]
