My Kinda' Town

I am feeling like this!
And I am feeling like this because of my friends....
and I mean my friends in 'Bloggieville'.
The best built town in our little (international) World
Every one of you who left a message for me....
filled my heart with one more smile.
Because of 'the collective YOU ', 
I know that I am not alone.
I know that none of us are alone, unless we choose to be alone.
And today I choose YOU. 
And because I have chosen to be 'a  part  of ' this community
the rewards are beyond anything I could have imagined.
And believe me....I have some imagination!
I have finally found people that I fit in with....
people that have similar interest,
people that have heart and good manners.
And unbelievably smart people
 that have embraced me too.
Thanks for letting me in.
I love you.
Even though I have a sh--ty job,
because of you....
it's okay for today.
Below are the remarkably kind Birthday Posts that I received this year.
 The time and effort that went into them amazes me.
These sweet posts just make me want to chant ;
" I am worthy"
" I am worthy"
"I am worthy"
Check them out below. 
Click on the highlighted blog names and you will be 
transported to Nirvana and served 
chicken Masala. 
Debbie from her brilliant blog 
did an absolutely hilarious Happy Birthday post for me.
Talk about someone who 'get's me'. Debbie does.
Jackie from her beautiful blog with unreal images 
sent me Love and a Happy Birthday on her blog;
Julie at Being Ruby gets my humor.
And I love her because of that.
After all, all I really want is to be understood, and accepted.
*And Julie is has beautiful blog with a great message every time.
One of my first pals in design blogging would be the super divine
Miss Valerie Hart from Visual Vamp
Left me a Happy Birthday note for all the world to see.
Love you Valerie!!!
And then there is MY FRIEND....
Renae Moore of Renae Moore Designs ,who I talk to on the phone, and who I love and adore.
*She keeps me updated on the goings on in our Bloggieville, 
and what I may have missed while working.
I love you Renae.
Millie and Moth from The Laurel Hedge had 
Sir Paul McCartney
sing me Happy Birthday to me.
How about that ?

And all this was started from my dear mom.
(Who never could keep a secret!)
Yvonne at her new blog ( as of Nov.2009)
So thanks Mom!

What do you think of 
our little town Bloggieville?

Thank You ALL for my sweet birthday wishes 2010


  1. Yes, they are lovely people. And it's a great blogtown, full of cafés and cupcakes and manners and smiles. I might give up real work and become a fulltime commentator.

  2. Even though I'm totally late..., and totally missed your birthday..., I still say "Happy Birthday!" And I enjoyed the party (all the blog posts...) very much.


  3. You summed it up perfectly (as you always have a knack of doing) - we all want to fit in, we all want to find people we connect with and we all want to be accepted and yes, loved. I have never had the typical large group of close girlfriend. I felt a bit of an outsider most of the time and I didn't feel like women "got me". Because of blogging, I've finally found people that 'get me'. For this too I am blessed. I am blessed for my Bloggieville with you in it. I am SO glad I made you laugh. xxoo deb

  4. Count me in as a citizen of your community. Held hostage north of the Mason-Dixon which has greater appreciation of eccentrics, I have often felt like a shirt that comes back from the laundry, forced into perfect folds and banded to get in space alloted. The blog world offers more space.Hugs to you dear one for being braver than you know, for being honest, for being kind with sass. You're my kind of friend.

  5. Wow!
    Happy Happy all day every day, I dare you!

    It is also my Mams's Birthday today and she is the year of the Horse.

    ...are you?

  6. Can you get dual city citizenship? If so, I am in!

  7. Have to agree with Dumbwit- You have a great way of summing everything up! I'm sure glad to be apart of your "community" ;) Hope your Birthday was great!

  8. I'm here via wish you a Happy Birthday and tell you what a great friend you have in her. The blog post she did in your honor was so much fun to read!
    Cheers, Renee!

  9. Dear Renee,

  16. I've just moved into Bloggieville and am still feeling my way, but, I have to say, I don't think I'll be moving out in a hurry as those I meet are just lovely and I hope to meet more and more of you in the future. I enjoy my visits with you Renee.

  17. Bloggieville's a great little town & best of all there's NO SHERIFF!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
