It is a pleasure to look at the beautiful images. To think about the questions she asks. To consider a book she is reading. A place that spawns many lovely dreams. Also a place that makes you happy to be a woman; she makes you feel connected to other women and that's a powerful thing. The wonderful thing about the author, Jeanne, is that she always takes the time to comment on little blogs like mine. Very Sweet!
Missa has wonderful style and her photos made me run out to buy lace and floral prints at the thrift store. Once I put some of it on I realized that there was no way I could pull it off as nicely as she does. I think she's taller and a few pounds lighter! Nevertheless, every time she puts up a new post, I can't wait to read it. She also features styles for little ones, courtesy of her daughter Clover. Just wonderful!
Grandpa and Grandma are self-sufficient. They are the kind of folks that you wished lived next door, just in case anything went down. From sprouting seeds to making their own dog food, these guys do it all. They share their knowledge with their grandchild, Boy. I love when they take me on little walks. To see things through their eyes. So many wonderful ideas to learn about.

A Beach Cottage
I recently stumbled upon this blog and having grown up near the beach, anytime I have a longing to go back, I can- with just one click. Sarah moved to Australia and into a run down little cottage (which is really hard to believe based on how amazing it looks now) and in no time had it in ship shape. She is extremely talented. You can almost smell the ocean while you are reading her blog!
A chef in Australia, who is celebrating his 100th post (he only posts once a week, so that's two years). He is an amazing writer and a fantastic chef. I know this, even though I haven't actually tasted his dishes (I wish), the pictures make my mouth water. His writing has no fear and is funny and honest. Really good stuff!

Mom was the one who read blogs for many years and tried to explain to me what they were.
From there I can honestly say that many freindships have been formed.

"Why is it that being near water always makes one so hungry?" River-Rose

My mom found this mini-mannequin at a thrift store, dressed up as a ballerina. She immediately thought my sister might like it. My sis has an awesome eye for style and the height and figure to go with it. Most of her outfits are vintage or thrifted in such an elegant way. It is a wonderful style all of her own. I keep telling her she should have a blog, but she says she needs to learn about how to use the Internet first! Oh, little sisters are funny!

Ok , Ok , I really had to show some restraint so I could get these photos. I cannot believe the results I got from this first try with Mussels & Linguine and a sauce I just kinda sorta put together. Lemon juice, mushrooms, olive oil, scallions, and a stick of butter......................Wow! One of the best dishes I have ever made!!
