A Merry Christmas Farewell

Dear Readers, 

The time has come for me to say good-bye to Poofing the Pillows. I have loved writing this blog for 10+ years but I know it's time to move on. The best part about blogging, for me, is interacting with you! I have started a private Facebook group called Poofing the Pillows and Friends. This is a spot where we can all share! You are welcome to share your photos there instead of just me sharing mine. I want to know what's going on with you and how you are loving your home. Please consider joining this closed group. Only members of the group are able to see what is posted and your privacy is respected.

Thank you so much for your kind support all this time! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  6. So sorry you are leaving but I understand. I have thought about it a few times, myself. I joined your Facebook group so I won't lose touch. I have enjoyed reading your blog for so many years! Have a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year!

  7. Dear sweet Stacey, As you close this chapter of your life I want to say thank you for kindness and generosity when Sara and I were first starting out and beyond. I'll never forget that first day of Haven when I was on my own. You and Jemma took me under your wings without a moment's hesitation, and I appreciated it so much. Wherever this next chapter takes you I'm confident it will be with the kindness and spirit of love that I know you for.

  10. I will miss this wonderful, beautiful blog. And I am headed over to your FB page to be one of the first to sign up! There, done! I've loved every post you've ever done and I'll miss you terribly but glad we will be able to keep in touch. I hope you'll share with us how you'll be spending all those hours you aren't blogging! Meanwhile, have a wonderful Christmas. Merry and Bright.

  12. Stacey, I was wondering if you had gone on holiday! I will miss your posts. Will you still be on Instagram? I gave up Facebook a long time ago. P.S. I enjoyed the first issue of The Cottage Journal and judging from the response to my Instagram post, several other gals love the magazine too. Looking forward to the next issue. I would imagine they do a great job with gardening articles. xoxo

  14. Stacey, I've been missing your posts. I hate to see you close down your blog; it's been an inspiration to me, your decorating, recipes and your words of wisdom, every post.
    I gave up FB several years ago; I'll miss hearing from you! May God bless you and your family. Merry Christmas!

  16. Stacey, I am so sorry that you will no longer blog; however, I fully understand. The world has changed so much in the last few years. I will miss your positive energy and wisdom.

  18. Stacey I've lost count at how many years I've followed your blog. You were one of the first favorites I followed and it was nice that you were in my neck of the woods. I'm so glad you created the facebook group so we can still connect. I'm sad that you won't be blogging anymore but totally understand.
    Merry Christmas!!

  19. Stacey, I am so sad to see you say goodbye to blogging, but I do know it can't last forever. I know they all have an end date. I have enjoyed your blog and wish you all the very best. I haven't made the decision about Facebook. I have always sworn it off. You are definitely making me think. I will ponder it over Christmas, but either decision...Have a most wonderful Christmas and know that your blog will be missed.

  24. Hey Stacey! I only wish I had gotten to know you sooner so that we could have blogged together more than just once and gotten to know each other a lot better! You will be missed, all the same. I'm not on FB so I won't be able to keep up with you there but feel free to drop by my blog and say hi whenever you get the chance.

  26. Dear Stacey, you will be missed in blogland but I understand. I’ve become so busy with other things, there is little time to write posts. I like your idea of a FB page. Bet of luck on this new chapter in your life! Zenda

  27. I am sad to hear this Stacey....but can really understand. I just "joined" your group...looking forward to the "friend sharing"....and look forward to staying in touch...

  28. Oh my sweet friend, I will miss you so much - I have always adored your blog and your really wonderful personality, and thoughts, and talents.

    I am so truly sorry that I have been so MIA in blogville - I went back to work, have had health issues and so little time to post - haven't since before Halloween (and you know how much I love fall decor!)

    I will miss your home tours sooooo much. In fact I was going to ask if I could maybe one day do Christmas for ya! Got the house all spiffed up and haven't shared - it's amazing how much life the internet steals if we aren't careful.

    YOU will be sorely missed, forever admired and respected by me and many many others.

    I don't do FB - again that life stealing thing - so I won't be able to join you, but do stop by my blog and let me know you are fairing well.

    Best wishes for a Merry Christmas full of peace and things that bring you joy...and a new year filled with hope and promise and good health.

    Hugs and prayers.
    xxoo

  30. I'm sorry to see you go, but I understand. I'm not on Facebook, but I hope we can somehow still keep up. Are you still on Instagram?

  31. I have to say this makes me sad. I've enjoyed your blog and will miss it, but we all have to do what we feel is best. I plan to join your FB page. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and may God bless you with a wonderful New Year.

  32. Wishing you a very Happy New Year Stacey....I too may close for awhile....I shall miss you, but hopefully can keep in touch through FB....hugs and blessings!

  33. Oh Stacey, I fell like we just found each other! Lol! Definitely will miss your blog! I couldn't remember if your on Instagram? If you are let me know. My FB is strictly my immediate family and have contemplated on leaving FB altogether. Thank you so much for all your words of encouragement, you really are a special lady. Will miss you lots! Elizabeth

  34. I'm so sad, Stacey! But I totally understand. I've thought about quitting, too, especially after the year I've had with my health. I'm not on FB, but I hope you'll still post on IG so I can keep up with you!

    Merry Christmas!

    xo,
    RJ

  35. I'll be following on Facebook. You've been such a great blogging friend. I agree with the comments above. You're such a positive and supportive person and your posts were always so fun and happy but blogging has changed so much. It gets discouraging at times. Blessings to you, Stacey. I hope you will still join us for blogging luncheons.
