Swanky Pear

Welcome to the Swanky Pear!  Are you excited?  Because I'm excited!  I have been working on this for quite awhile and pain-stakingly learning Photoshop Elements to make all the headers and buttons...let's just say we might be friends in the near future, but not quite yet:)  Eventually everything from the old blog (The Crooked Curve) will be moved here, but you will have to be patient!!  

I have high hopes for this blog and hope you check back often!  I plan on updating this blog 3 times a week with a different theme each time. Mondays will be Makeover Monday...which is when my fabulous readers have an opportunity to send me pictures of their decorating quandaries and I will share some decorating tips  (FYI...I have been an Interior Designer for 10 years now)...So start thinking of where you might need some help and send me your pictures so you can be featured!! (More on this later)

Wednesdays will be Craft Day and on Fridays I will post some of my favorite recipes.

So...who is ready for the BIG GIVEAWAY??!!  Check out the cute Swanky Charm necklace I made...



Love it???  Well here is what you have to do to win have 3 possible entries:

1.  Put the blog button on your blog (which is to the right) for ONE entry AND/OR
2.  Do a little blurb on your blog about Swanky Pear...gotta spread the word somehow:) for TWO entries!
3.  Leave a comment on this I know you want to win!!
4.  Come back and visit Swanky Pear on Friday to see who the winner is!!  

Good Luck!

  5. You're amazing, Summer! Do I get some sort of prize for being one of your first interior design clients? (My house on Kilbridge sold the first day it was shown - and I had numerous offers - due in large part to the drapes you designed and had created for my family room!) I'm going to be sending you photos of my interior design issues! xoxo
