You Take The Cake!

Thank You for visiting River-Rose!
Over the last year I have learned that there are some wonderfully artistic and beautiful blog sites out there! Here are a few of my favorites:
"For Dreaming"
Collage of Life
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!
"For Dressing"
Thrift Candy
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!
"For Survival"
Subsistence Pattern
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.

"For Beachy Days"
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!
"For Cooking"
One Hungry Chef
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!
