What's So Great About Blogs?

Oh my, where to begin?  I admit I am a blog addict.  I love reading them!  Writing them stops me from talking to myself.  Well, not entirely, but it certainly cuts it down to just being odd and not certifiably crazy!

I get inspiration and tons of how to info from endless numbers of truly clever people on everything from cooking to design, crafting to finding bargains.  I can peek inside their homes and get a glimpse of who they are are what things they care about.

I've met people in South America creating English cottage homes and Brits creating Canadiana in their homes.  From Greeks that are in love with Southern colonial to Americans thrilled with the vibrant colours of India we are all on the quest for an environment that most speaks to us. I, of course, copy anything that says old world Europe.

Occasionally, I get a lovely award like this one from Wendy at Her-Ballistic Garden ~


Thanks, Wendy!

I love that blogging has led me to so many wonderful people around the world!  The Leibster award gives me an opportunity to introduce you to five of my favourites.  I know you will love them as much as I do. Here's my list of up and coming stars! ~

Rukmini lives in India and has created a wonderful Shabby Chic home.  You also get to see India through her eyes.  I feel like we are friends and can't wait to see what she is up to in each post!

The Vintage Chateau

She has my style down pat! The pics are beautiful and everything she touches has a wonderful element of elegance.

Eclectically Vintage

The name says it all here.  This is a really fun site and Kelly is full of ideas!

Sweet Girl Expressions

This young mom is full of more great ideas!

An Anglo In Quebec

Here's you chance to poke around a wonderful chalet and soak up some of that style.

Those are just some of the friends I visit regularly.  You will love them as much as I do when you check out their sites!

If they accept the award, they link back to this site and go on to nominate five more up and coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  I know none of them will be in this category for long, so add this award to your sidebars, ladies!

Thanks to all my readers!  It's been such a thrill to have you with me on this terrific journey!!!
