Now That We Are SIX!

When I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five,
I was just alive.
But now I am Six,
I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

As I begin my sixth year of blogging, I’d like to thank you for reading. It means the world to me that you take the time to read Pigtown*Design and comment on it. I would love to know what you’d like to see me write about in the next year, topics you’d like to learn more about and what interests you.


  1. Congratulations on your 6th year of inspiring and wonderful entries! All the best!

  2. Wow...thanks for all of the beautiful inspiration and Happy Anniversary!!

  3. Hi Meg - happy 6th!! I started 6 years ago too, in March. You know - that certainly makes us some of the longest-lived bloggers on here?!
    I remember when many people started, when there were so few good design blogs that I followed them all!

  4. Hi Meg, Amazing years! Thank you so much for sharing your ups and downs with your faithful followers. Be well! Mary

  5. Congratulations, Meg! I love reading your blog. You are so kind and clever.


  6. Although I have only followed your blog for a couple of years, know that yours in one of the first I read. Congrats to a most generous writer who gives tirelessly to the community at large. And I love it when you take OKL to task. Thanks God there are people like you who have good sense in this material world! Best wishes to you and Connor.

  7. Happy Blog day!
    Keep up the good work. I have learned so much about Baltimore and its environ. I especially enjoy your treasure hunts and would like to see more in 2012.

  8. Congratulations on your blog anniversary! One of the great things about your blog is never knowing what the exact topic will be when I open your e-mail; and yet, there is a cohesiveness that makes each post a part of you and generously invites your readers to share in your world.

  9. Hi, Meg. Thanks for your blog, which I enjoy very much. As someone who grew up in Baltimore but moved away many years ago, I especially enjoy your pieces that cover the City and its architecture, history, culture, clubs, ghosts, and so forth.

    Best regards and thanks again - David in Raleigh

  10. kudos to you. although I live within spitting distance from Baltimore, my city is DC. I do go to Baltimore for museum visits and other occ. but really don't know the city at all. So, I'll just follow along as you explore your beloved city and make lists of places to visit. I'm especially interested in art events, craft fairs, funky shops and good places to eat...

  11. Hi Meg, congrats on six years and a job well done!
    I love when you focus on local traditions,events and everything design. Local personalities and an occasional history lesson are always appreciated!

  12. Congrats! I can't imagine six years of blogging. I'm betwixt and between- 1.5 yrs.

    I just recently found you, so I look forward to many more posts!

  13. Yay Meg, long may you wave. Always enjoy your blogs no matter the topic, but would love to know more about:

    CONNOR! with accompanying photos of him in his natural habitat. Eating a snack, preparing for a Halas visit, visiting with Halas, saying goodbye to Halas, loving his babies, organzing his babies, having a bath, listening to music, writing in his journal, etc.

    Anything UK-related

    Architectural visits. Why not do a blog where you visit people's homes a la Friday NYSD columns?


  14. Cue some music, I'm playing the beginning of "Stars and Stripes Forever" while imaginary glitter confetti falls over your blog! I like the photos, the variety of topics, the links to other blogs. I like that you are passionate about your life without taking yourself too seriously. Yours is a fun blog to visit.

  15. Congratulations on your sixth year of blogging! I love your easy way and the subjects you find to write about. I look forward to each and every blog you write.
    I love the pictures of places and homes in the British Isles too! I have also learned a lot about the Baltimore area as well!

  16. Congrats on six years! I just want you to continue to do that voodoo that you do.

  17. suggested topics-- those charming garden seats that add a dash of color and style to the pages of decor magazines-- those ceramic gems with cut- outs, shaped like a child's root beer barrel candy-- they are delicious in the house BUT how do I select one -- where can I find one in person to tell iff I am really in love with them how much should I pay for one what do I look for--oh and the workhorse of decor a round table with a table cloth touching the ground and then a topper how do I know what size to buy and what material should it be shiny chinz cotton ?? help thanks

  18. To a true pioneer,
    Congratulations, my dear friend - a wonderful and always inspiring read. 6 years! Fantastic!
    So much love

  19. Congratulations, Meg. Thank you for your constancy, your smartmouth, your sassy attitude, your depth of intelligence, your authenticity and your dog.

    Don't change!


  20. Congratulations. Always grateful for your generous posts.

    One of my favorite verses that.

    Hugs to Connor.

  21. And hasn't it been FUN!!!!! I know I have enjoyed every single post since I discovered you! Here's to many more years of all this good stuff! Congratulations!!!

  22. Congratulations, you are so far ahead of some of us. Six years ago I wasn't sure what a blog was. I wish you many more!

  23. Delighted to join the many who send you good wishes and hope it provides you continued inspiration in this strange phenomenon called blogging. Although I have never met you, somehow, like penpals of old, I feel I know you a little bit. And you are nice to know!

  24. Congrats Meg. Looking forward to reading about what this new year brings you.

  25. you should do a design makeover at a baltimore home...located at 633 wyeth
