Here I am!

Can't you see me? I'm the one here behind the monitor still blogging, believe it or not! Well, okay, mostly reading blogs, but I did start a lovely post two days ago that I had to save for later. I wanted to show off pictures from our little vacation, but realized that I should get permission from my sister-in-law before plastering her darling children's faces all over the internet! So, once I hear from her, you might see the full version or the slightly edited version of our road trip to southern California. Suffice it to say, I had a great time. We've never been able to afford to do much in the way of travel and this trip was definitely "on the cheap", but it will be a happy memory to last me for many years!

I have really been enjoying my bloglines lately and have found two new blogs that I love. The first is Princess Nimble-Thimble. She makes darling things that I can only describe as Good. As in virtuous. They have an elegant sturdiness to them and there is no irony, just honest goodness. I hope you will pop over and see her beautiful work. She also sells her handcrafts and that's awfully good too!

The other good blog I have recently found is Simply Green by author Danny Seo. He is very inspiring! I found him via Alicia at Posie Gets Cozy who is also very inspiring. Between the two of them and this magazine I picked up today,
I am wanting to play decorator very badly! I don't think I've ever mentioned this before, but since I was eleven, I've always dreamed of being an interior designer. As is my way, I talked myself out of it, but I still love to design and decorate beautiful rooms in my head (and sometimes on paper). This is how I rock myself to sleep at night!

Needless to say, I've been watching HGTV's DesignStar very closely! If anyone else is as nerdy as me: aren't you glad Temple is finally gone?! Me too!

  1. Oh my goodness, what a sweet surprise! :blush:

    So Temple is gone, huh? I've caught a few episodes of that show when we were over the in-law's house (we don't have cable). Now I'm curious about who is left. Off to HGTV's site to find out...

  2. Thank you for visiting my little bloggedy blog. It's the greatest way to meet people with the same interests, isn't it? I love what you posted about your bloggy girls... I feel the same way! My in-person friends, fabulous as they are, aren't crafty so this whole experience has been very uplifting for me and brought me right back into my hobbies. I love it. Have a great day!
