Welcome to my World of Design

As an introduction to this blog, I first want to thank my Granddaughter, Erica, for the suggestion that I start this adventure.
Most of my family and friends know that my passion in life is Interior Design. Even as a small child, I remember picturing rooms in different colors and forms.
It has only been in my later years that I have been able to express this passion. I have had the benefit of being associated with two designers, one a very talented unknown and the other a very well known celebrity in the Design World. Both have encouraged me to pursue my passion.
Through this blog I hope to share all my thoughts (epiphanies). I have been known to change rooms at 3 AM ---just about whenever an idea comes to mind.
I am not sure what format this blog will take on. I might let it just fall into place and evolve like design does. 

 I had no idea on that day where the Blog would go,  or for how long.  I didn't know what a "Blog"  was  three days before that!  I never dreamed we would be where we are today.  I probably had 15 viewers, if that!  The family and friends that support one when they start up a business or project!  They stuck with me and we now have 119 on our email list!  This doesn't count the ones that find us, from all over the world.  Have you checked the Flag Totals on the right hand side of the opening page?  

It has been fun, sometimes very frustrating, but overall a wonderful "ride"!  I could not have accomplished any of this without the  Love of My Life,  AKA .....Emil...Steve and to all of you,  MC!!  He has been there for me  at each step of this journey!  He's MC!!!    I could not  do this without his "labor", support, and encouragement.  He also gets me calmed down each and every time I run into a problem with the computer or when I can't  figure out  this new technology world!


  Everyone is welcome to email me their GUESS of the day when we HIT 25,000!!!  You can see the number on the top, on  the right side  of the page.  It's changing all the time!  Every time someone goes on to the blog it registers a 'Hit'.  The one thing I have noticed is that some  IPhones  don't register....why, I have no idea!  Sorry.

The first one to pick a date,  gets that date.  No sharing!  So you have to get your guess in.... FAST.  I will keep track of all the names and have them on a post that I will update as needed.  You can see the names and dates!!!

There is a deadline for entering.  All entries must be in by JULY 4th, at MIDNIGHT,   EDT.

To help you out I will give you the dates of the previous levels we reached.  This "might" help with your guess.  I will only add that the last 500 hits have come quickly, very quickly!!!!

The Blog went up on September 3, 2008

Our first level,  5000,  was reached on October 13, 2009! Claire Wihnyk was the winner.

Next we reached 10,000 on July 17, 2010 and Bobby DelGiorno  was our winner

 March 31, 2011  we reached 15,00 and Anne Nevin, a neighbor, won.  It was so much fun being able to present her with the prize in person!

We hit 20,000 on January 30, 2012.  The clever winner was Mary Kate Wihnyk. 

Our past winners are now in Patty's Epiphanies HALL OF FAME and are INELIGIBLE to win.  They can enter, but they are excluded from winning.....

AT THIS EXACT TIME WE ARE AT 24,060!!!!  Pretty close.  This might not last too long.....

Oh, did I tell you that if you are the winner, you win the Grand Prize......$25.25!!!!!
Special extra amount for our lucky number ---25!

Good Luck........
