A few of my favorite things

Notice anything new???

I owe a HUGE Thank you to Kimba @ A Soft Place to Land for her Linky Love post which sent me to see Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality who was sharing some tips for us new bloggers. One of her tips was Windows Live Writer. WLW makes this whole process so much easier for someone new to the blogging world.

Thank you Kimba & Rhoda!!!

So while I am sharing links with you, here are 3 of my new favorite blogs.

When I came across Marley & Lockyer, I fell in love with this Aussie’s blog. Here’s a preview but please go check her out! 1

I love the airy yet cozy feeling of this room. I love that it does not look over-designed. In fact, I love just about everything here. 2

Again I love the open airy feeling and the natural light and who could resist that view. 3

Wow is about all there is to say about this. This is the feeling I picture my future living room having. LOVE it! 4

I love these ceilings. Not quite cozy enough but elegantly understated and beautiful.

Another new site I love is Shanty 2 Chic. Whitney & Ashley, the two stunning sisters who write this blog together have the Midas effect. Everything they lay their finger on becomes…..well Chic! Head over to Shanty 2 Chic & let your creativity run wild. Here is a little to get your creative juices flowing. 2

See this stunning apothecary jar. I am dying to have one! You have to go see how they made them. 22

How cute would these be in a game room. Then again they would be cute just about anywhere. These sisters amaze me!


You must see the before picture! Love these!

And last but certainly not least is Katie @ Vinyl Vineyard. Katie is another amazingly creative woman with fabulous taste & even more fabulous hair. I may be sending a link to her blog to my stylist. Go check out her blog. 3

A tad too country for my taste but lots of inspiration here. 2A simple yet elegant Fall decor idea! 


I love that this woman keeps it real!

I’d love to hear from you. Who are your favorite blogesses now?
