Nearly five years ago, we launched Mrs. Howard Personal Shopper as a way to share the Mrs. Howard experience with all of you. Thankfully, we were embraced by the blogging community—still very new at that time. We have loved sharing Phoebe's projects, design ideas, decorating tips, changes at the stores, and company growth through nearly 1,000 posts here. Since the start of the blog, Phoebe has written her first book, started a column with Southern Living magazine, launched Mr. & Mrs. Howard for Sherrill Furniture, produced Phoebe Howard Home bedding for QVC, and designed show houses for House Beautiful, Coastal Living and Southern Living, among many other incredible events and experiences. It has been a fantastic five years, and you were a big part of that.
We are launching a new web site in 2014, and with that will be the close of this blog. But don't worry—all of the blog posts will be archived on the new web site, so you can still find Phoebe's favorite paint colors, learn how to make a beautiful bed and browse the hundreds of other tips we have shared over the years.
We hope you will stay in touch and keep following us on Facebook, Pinterest and Phoebe's web site. There are many fantastic things planned that you will not want to miss, so stay tuned. If you have any questions or comments, please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank all of you for your loyalty throughout this time. We've always loved hearing from you—your comments, questions and ideas—and especially when you could visit us in the stores and say hello.
We wish you a very happy new year! With sincere thanks and appreciation—
Mrs. Howard Personal Shopper
