Blowing out a Candle: EEE turns 1

And what a year it has been.

When I first started my blog 365 days ago, little did I know how my world would expand and explode.

Your wise and wonderful comments, suggestions and - yes - corrections have opened my eyes and deepened my understanding of style and design -sure - but also of how much more rich and fun something is when you share it.

The celebration lasts all week as a few of the design blogosphere's most illustrious commenters (who constantly occasion everyone to ask, "When are they going to get their own blog?") have agreed to dazzle us with their wit and wisdom here. PLUS a feature presentation on the most searched term on the blog. (A free copy of Regency Redux to the first person who guesses who it is.) Meanwhile I'll be eating cake.

Stay tuned for some delicious guest appearances...

Amazing, isn't it, how our lives evolve. I started my business about a year ago never thinking it would become such a passion and a joy. Congratulations to you, Emily, and here's to an even more amazing new year! Jeanne (aka Sophie Dahy)

An Aesthete's Lament said...

Bravo! And many felicitations!

Is the most searched term hollywood regency?

Blue said...

Congratulations, Emily. Yours is a most readable, witty and chic blog, one that I enjoy regularly. One year old! Wow! Love the photo.

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Stefan, nope - it is a person, but, Gaye, not Castaing. Keep guessing!

little augury said...

Ok-just for the record, I own your fabulous book! But guessing is fun -her name was LOLA. GT

home before dark said...

Happy anniversary! I own your book(s), too. Pauline de Rothschild?

Lucindaville said...

Happy, happy birthday, baby....

My guess Mario Buatta!

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Lucindaville - you're the closest! It is a male and he is still alive...

Jennie McCahey said...

Albert Hadley?

Happy Anniversary!

Jennie

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Jennie - younger!

Habitually Chic said...

I would have guessed Albert Hadley too. On my blog, the most searched for person is Aerin Lauder! Happy Anniversary!

little augury said...

it must be the younger hadley-apropos of xmas- Mr Redd. that is my last guess as the next Hint will be the name- that would not look good, as I consider myself very sleuthy-or I once did so. g

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Gaye - close but no cigar!

Magnaverde, Not Redd but green?

Anonymous said...

I'm new to this, but I'd love to own a copy of your book, and I'd like to venture .. Magnaverde?

Mrs. Blandings said...

I can't believe it's only been a year as we seem like old blog friends. Congrats.

Gambrel?

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Anonymous and Home, Magnaverde is up there, but no....

Nor is it the divinely talented Mr. Gambrel....

little augury said...

ok ok is it my friend Mr.Worthington! I hope so. GT

Toby Worthington said...

I was going to guess Valerian Ryber, who might have come back from the grave to haunt us wretches after that wicked post about him!!

Janet said...

...a year! And now it is hard to imagine life without EEE. Here's wishing you many more!

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Oh Mr Worthington, you made me chuckle. Seriously, who knew Valerian Rybar would turn out to be a leit motif? He weighs in at #53.

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Nor is it Aesthete or Mr. Worthington - I'll throw you another clue. He is not a blogger or commenter.

Gil Schafer.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Emily, I missed EEE's birthday but better late than never. Having been given Regency Redux for Christmas last year I am constantly amazed and delighted that we can have more, more, more of you here FREE! I can only agree with everyone above how
wonderful you and your blog are. Love, Rosie

Congrats my friend on being one - yea!!! Happy birthday to you who shares the same "birth" sign of me, and Oprah's decorator NB; "Virgo"??!! Here's to more blogs, more books, more teachings, more beautiful shared conversations and travels and a year where all your dreams will come true.
