All the best to you, Karen, as you expand and organise. A great project for the new year...a new beginning!

Jennifer Dee

I will certainly follow both blogs. I love your blog both for the reading of books and the cooking, flowers etc. so I will be following both blogs. I must say that I love that book case of yours: I just want to go up and browse all those lovely books.

Harriet

I'm sure you are doing the right thing, though I love the mixture, and the NOT knowing whether it will be a book, a flower, a sock, or a recipe. But I will read both of course, and best of luck with them.

Claire

What could be nicer for the new year - another Cornflower blog. I look forward to it.

Lisa W

I also look forward to seeing Cornflower evolve. Good luck Karen!

Donna

I wish you much success with your new venture Karen. I am sure though that if it is half as good as this one, it will be a smashing success.

Tara

I'll looking forward to seeing what you have in store. I'll also be following both blogs.

Carol

I will read both too. I like the mix here - something different every day! Good luck with the new venture.

LINDA from EACH LITTLE WORLD

I will be following both your blogs, but I am with Jennifer and Harriet: I like the mix and the not knowing what to expect. But since you stop by my blog, you know that's because I have rather an unexpected mix myself. I am always wondering if it works or not.

I think that is one of the down sides of blogging — the need to be pigeonholed so like can find like. I prefer the serendipity of browsing and being exposed to something new that I never would have gone looking for. That said, I will certainly continue to follow you and will add you new blog to my links when you get it up. It will be fun to watch this evolve.

Peter the flautist

The weblogs I visit most frequently are exactly those that have that "Cornflower"-like variety. Perhaps Linda could expand upon why there is a perceived need to be pigeonholed; who does the pigeonholing for example and why?

natalie

I don't mind whether they are together or separate.
My own blog is a jumble of knitting and cooking and spinning and holidays and chickens so I am quite happy with either arrangement.

Margaret Powling

I suppose one has to expand these days, one can't just stay still, not even on a blog. I must confess I like things as they are, with books, recipes, architecture, art, needlecraft, flowers, whatever ... even whiskers on kittens if you like! But I shall look at both blogs, providing I have sufficient time. I ration the blogs I look at simply because I'd otherwise not get anything of my own done!
Apropos of nothing at all, I read in today's Telegraph that to wish a Scot a Happy Hogmany is incorrect! So Happy New Year, and simply enjoy the Hogmanywhatsit in whatever way Scots enjoy these things (with a wee dram, eh?)

Vicki

New here. I am impressed by your book shelves. I love displaying books. I recently bought 2 bookcases from Ikea and have filled them with my favorites.
I'll be visiting often.

Sarie

How exciting. Two Cornflower blogs to look forward to. I can't wait!

Frances

Congratulations! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

Karen/NYC

I've always liked the blend of topics, but I can well understand why the "bookish" bits have dominated and deserve their own spot. Will look forward to visiting both blogs. Happy New Year!

Nicola

Hi Karen, of course I'll read both, but I do like the variety here. Although I'm not a crafter myself I'm still interested in what crafters/homemakers do and it stops me being too bookish! Good luck, anyway. Nicola

Deirdre

Of course I will visit both although I have always enjoyed the mixture of interests you have written about and photographed for Cornflower. Good luck with the new blog; it will be a success, I am sure.

Happy New Year from snowy New England!

Cornflower

Thankyou to everyone for these lovely supportive comments.

ted

An expansion - how exciting! I look forward to both.
