Since engaging on social media, I have met so many wonderful people - both online and in real life. One person I've met and have had the pleasure of collaborating with is Leslie Carothers, the CEO of The Kaleidoscope Partnership. Recently, Leslie referred me to a social media client of hers, Leslie Hendrix Wood, to be a blog contributor to the Hadley Court interior design blog. I also had the pleasure of meeting Leslie Hendrix Wood this past March in LA at the Design Bloggers Conference, where Leslie's blog Hadley Court was awarded Design Blog of the Year. Thrilled to collaborate with Leslie & Leslie, please be sure to stop by the Hadley Court blog to view my first contribution post: Trend Pin Tuesday: Black Lamp Shades, where you'll see the Top 5 most pinned images of rooms using black lamp shades, as well as tips to incorporate this trend into your own home...

Happy to be blogging again after my trip back east, and thrilled to be collaborating with Leslie Hendrix Wood of Hadley Court...

  1. Dear Lynda:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful post! Both Leslie Hendrix Wood and I appreciate it so much- you've gone above and beyond what we asked of you, as you always do when you and I collaborate together for one of my clients, as we've done in the past when you set up all the Pinterest boards for The Curtain Exchange and, again, when you did the same for Olioboard on Pinterest.

    Thank you, Lynda, and I hope you have a great day!


    Leslie Carothers
