This just in . . . .

Connecticut Country House has been awarded the 2016 Design Bloggers Conference Hall of Fame Award for Best Overall Blog!

The competition was close; there were so many wonderful, talented people that participated in this year’s event. I’m thrilled, humbled and honored to have the blog recognized in such a prestigious way.

But what a wild ride, complete with our very own ‘Steve Harvey’ moment at the ceremony, when the winner of another category was announced as the winner of our award and vice versa!

It all happened so quickly, accepting an award for a category that Connecticut Country House hadn’t been nominated for. I was a bit caught off guard to say the least. It wasn’t until I returned to my seat and read the inscription on the award that I realized I had actually, honest to goodness won Best Overall Blog!

So, my dear friends, in the event that you were following the event live, via Facebook, Twitter or other media outlets, the information put out there initially was incorrect.

I raise my glass. Here’s to setting the record straight, celebrating a fantastic win, and to you, for all your support and helping Connecticut Country House become the 2016 Design Bloggers Conference Hall of Fame winner for Best Overall Blog!

Yay Connecticut Country House!

Love, Nora

    Nora , this is wonderful. What an honor to receive such an award… I know awards do not mean as much as the people who follow it everyday, but it nice to be recognized. With all the negativity with the Presidential campaigns, it is refreshing to hear something wholesome and gentle is recognized. Maybe Morning Joe should advertise you!
