Bonjour Arlynn, I dont have a question, I discovered you channel not very long ago and I love it. You are very, very talented and you do wonderful decor. I have to say, though, that what besides the lovely decor, what brings me back all the time to your channel, is your wonderful personality : you are positive, you have faith, you are very generous with your time, you are honest and natural when you answer questions. That being said, I find you beautiful inside and out. Thank you, know that you are truly appreciated. Be blessed, you and your hubby with good health, stay safe oxox

Hi Arlynn! Luv the lantern Bella sent u omg it looks amazing with your birds and greenery in it, luv it! Arlynn my sister was an RN she was amazing really I’m not just saying that she cared for her patients and stood up to the Dr’s when it came to her patients they were number one, sometimes the Dr. might not put his patient first, my sister passed away from colon cancer at 46 we have two genes that we inherited from our father for colon cancer, we both had surgery when we were 16 her first then when I turned 16 I had it too the Dr. took our large intestines out because of polyps that if were left in would have killed us both much sooner. I miss her so much I always turned to her when ever there was a medical issue I needed help with. The cancer eventually got her, her polyps multiplied and she didn’t keep them burned out and cut out soon enough and they spread to her back and other areas and the Dr. had to paralyze her because of the pain and then she eventually died it was heartbreaking to see her die from a disease we tried so hard to keep under control most of our lives. I have lost so many of my family due to this colon cancer gene my Dad most of his sisters my grandmother who I never got to know because of this cancer gene but that’s how we learned we had this gene was from my grandmothers death. Arlynn u would have made an awesome nurse u r compassionate, kind and u r smart girl u really r and yes u do underestimate your ability’s people would have really benefited from your compassion that u would have shown to them as a nurse. Okay that’s it I’m done with my rant lol have a good evening. Xoxo ???

Katie Hopkins

Beautiful Arlynn I just love your little birds and the lantern with the lamps it just looks Beautiful ❤️

Diana Henris

Hi Arlynn! I’m so glad you posted a video, I needed a distraction because tomorrow is my daughter’s surgery. I am flipping out! I’m trying to stay positive. The lanterns are so nice. I loved how your arrangement turned out with the lantern, very pretty. The whole table display looks very nice. Glad to see your nails are lasting. Much love & take care! ?

Ann R

I love Bella. You are the one who turned me on to her channel a few weeks ago. Thank you so much. She is such a sweet lady as are you. It was so very thoughtful and sweet of her to send you the lanterns and I Iove what you did with them. They are in the perfect places. I so look forward to your next video. They just make my day. Sending love and hugs.

sandra brown

Those lanterns are so nice. Very nice of her to send them also. Hope you are feeling ok after your fall. My sister is in Kansas she said it was 9 degree's there. I am having a time with my hair also. I had a " Ablation" in January of 2020. About March my hair started falling out lots and lots. I have always had really thick hair. The Doctor said it was the Anesthesia . My hair looked so bad. So very thin. So I gave that Vegamour that I saw advertised a try. I read a lot of different reviews on it. Some good some bad. I think it has helped. Not positive will let you know if I have wasted my money. I sure hope it helps.

Cathrine Gilbertsson

How sweet of Bella to send you them what a beautiful ,kind and generous lady also they are gorgeous !! I love how you decorated them and the table looks amazing...Arlynn I see a piece of paper or tag in your scroll and I know I have said this to you a few times but you don't see it ...I really must be going crazy ..lol...Does anyone else see it at 37.09 in video ..lol...great video take care and many blessings to you and Chris x

Cheryl The Pearl

You and your husband were lucky to have been vaccinated already. Even though he’s retired you aren’t elderly or unhealthy. It just depends on the counties to get it done. So many elderly, sick and teachers still need the vaccine in our county of southern Md. All of Bella’s lanterns are great. A little steep in price for me at this time but you did great job decorating. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

So Blessed

How sweet of Bella. Those lanterns are beautiful and go so well with your decor. Love how you decorated them. ?

Andrew Walker

Looks fabulous,let it go let it go gray ,never happen.

Carol Hale

Thank you for answering my questions, Arlynn. I’m sure you would enjoy living closer to your daughters. I figured it must have been a career decision. Thank you for always sharing your life and home with all of us; you are very appreciated. Stay safe, we’ve been hit with a good bit of snow too. Good luck with your hair appointment. Your new lantern design looks very pretty. Bella did a great job with them, and I’m glad she made yours black to go with your Hooker furniture, which is very pretty. Have a nice week.

Charlene Steverson

Arlynn Sweetie, Wow That Must Have Been A Huge Placemat! The Ones I've Seen Would Never Have Made That Much! It Would Have Made Big Coasters! (LOL) Have U Thought About Doing A Few Prize Boxes With Some Of The Stuff U Are Getting Rid Of! I Saw A Lady Do That On Her Channel Before & Her Subscribers Loved It! Just An Idea! Love U Girl! ?? Have A Very Blessed & Prosperous Day!

Beautiful lantern, great job as always!

sandra nichols-rambo

Your half round table is so gorgeous! I am on the lookout for one to use in my foyer. It has to be quite narrow so no luck so far. I have your lamps. Love them. Dear sweet Bella. I have purchased several of her pieces, most recently her charcuterie board. (Like we entertain so much) I think I may switch out my dough bowl on my island. Cant wait to receive it. And yoir highlights hide your gray. Not noticeable at all, you lucky gal. ❤️

Jcatlover D.

Loved this video...thank you both for great information!! The wooden lantern turned out really cute and love the birds ???? ? ? ?

Mehri T

Absolutely everything so beautiful I love it .??????

Nelda Rust

Arlynn, I love Bella's lanterns and I love how you style that one with the little birds. Your table is so pretty!! Bella is so sweet. I watch the same church you watch. I love Gary Hamrick. He is an awesome pastor. That is an awesome church!! I am still going through his Revelation series. So good. I used to watch Room by Room and it was very good. You should have your own HGTV show but your channel is awesome.

I forgot to say also. I like the length of your hair. It is a good length to be able to do so many styles. Don't u think so? My confidence level is so low. You seem like you have so much confidence to me. Those bluebirds that you put in the lanterns so pretty. Love your videos. I will sign off I am sorry I talk and type to much.

Cute arrangement in lantern with the birds. When I was in nursing school oh so many years ago. We had on gal in her 40s with teenagers and married. Then one lady was late 50s or early 60 s who was in our class. She even lived in the dorm?. So never think you are too old, although truthfully I would not go back to school at this age myself.?

Gloria Abercrombie

Thank you for answering my question Arlynn! I too wanted to become an RN ! But motherhood took center stage! You would’ve made an amazing Nurse as you are such a caring and sweet soul! Really enjoy your channel! ????
