Being a Guest Poster Child, er, Adult!

Natalie - NorthShore Days

Danni - Silo Hill Farm

Heather - The Beating Hearth

I am so excited that I just can't stand it.  I'm about to lose control . . . and you know the rest.  Recently I was asked if I would be a guest on the Monday Inspiration Cafe.  Well, of course, I said YES!  I read them every week. Then I became very nervous.  I have never done this before.  I know nothing about thingies and gobbledy-gook computer linky and sendy things.  Thank goodness for Danni Baird - she held my hand all the way from Missouri and guided me through all the steps until now - this very minute - I will attempt to do the previously impossible for me - I am going to send y'all over to read my very first guest post!.  If I do not succeed, I have a back-up plan:  DANNI!  HELP!

Distressed Donna Down Home is not home at this time.  Please go over to the Inspiration Cafe to read my post Benches for the Birds.  Yes, I am back to birds and away from sheep.

 Here is a sneaky little teaser for you:

See y'all!


  1. Donna,

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful post! Your benches are so beautiful! You are so creative and talented. You had no reason to be nervous. I'm so glad Danni was there for you to help - she is pretty great!

    Once again, THANK YOU! Your Benches for the Birds are such a treat!

  2. Thank you Donna for an awesome post. We have really enjoyed having you at the Cafe this week and love that you are a regular reader of ours too.
    Just love those benches, love them!!!

  3. Your benches are absolutely beautiful:-) Hugs, Biljana

  4. Donna, these are so precious! I read you at the Cafe and just had to come over and check your blog. Is Danni not the sweetest thing ever?? She has been so wonderful in helping me get my blog running, don't know if I ever would (or could) have done it without her help. And now, she has told us about your blog. Yep, sweetest thing ever!! (I know, bla bla bla, LOL, I am Southern, too!!)

  5. I'm on my way over to see what in the world possessed you to abandon the sheep.

  6. Yep, you've gone to the birds. I laughed as usual. By the way, if I hear of any fingerprintless crime sprees involving junk, I'm gonna try to keep my mouth shut about my suspicions, but I'll know that if it wasn't me (because I'm suffering from fingerprintlessness too.) It was you. I lost mine while polishing silver for hours over the weekend. My fingertips are so slick they keep slipping off the computer keys. Don't worry; I won't rat you out. Not unless they bribe me with something like a barn full of cool old junk from my childhood. That's worse-case scenario. I really don't think they could break me, but they say everyone has their price. That might be mine, but you can count on me to do my best to keep my trap shut. Junkers without fingerprints should really stick together.

  7. Donna,

    Those stools are beautiful, I can see why they wanted you to do a guest post!


  8. Any friend of Danni's, lover of Graphics Fairy and compulsive furniture painter/graphics transfers is someone I have to follow! Great job on all three benches and a great post for the cafe! ~ Maureen

  9. She did a great job on all three stools and her blog is packed with great ideas! ~ Maureen
