A QUICK REMINDER ... the Shabby Girls {heart} visiting your wonderful blogs filled with such inspiration, but with the increasing popularity of the Tea Room challenges, it is becoming more time consuming to get around to each and every applicant's submission in order to leave comments. Please consider turning WORD VERIFICATION OFF and leaving COMMENT MODERATION ON. Word Verification will NOT protect you from spam comments, and if you have Word Verification turned on, we may not be able to leave a comment on your blog. Thank you for your cooperation!
