Blog Love


I 've been bursting with blog love lately and feel the need to spread it... it's just too good to keep it to myself any longer...

First off is the gorgeous and talented Kellie of  Cashon & Co.
She never ceases to amaze with her vast repertoire of fascinating posts.  Besides her thoroughly amazing blog, she is a brilliantly talented interior designer residing in Dallas and raising two young sons.  I look forward to each and every post she does and I think you will too!




Next up,  is my dear friend Kathysue and her new blog,  The Good Life of Design.
She is not only the sweetest lady on the planet which you can tell from the way she writes, but she has an amazing ability to show you things about the design process that you never knew or thought about!
Trust me, you will develop an addiction to her blog! 




Donna, from  A Perfect Gray,  is the newest kid on the block. The first time I visited her blog, I was smitten by her design sensibility and passion for the perfect shade of gray!  I have since found out she was an antiques dealer and trust me, it shows.  She teases me with occasional glimpses into her fabulous abode always leaving me wanting more!!  Please go and check out her blog and leave a comment  requesting her to post more photos of her amazing home!!





Beautifully 50  is another favorite of mine!  I just love this woman who is on a quest to accept turning 50 with grace and wisdom.  Her blog is chock full of tips, advice and insights into the joys of turning 50 and accepting mid-life with aplomb.






Amanda of  Tart Paperie  is a burst of fresh air!  She is a young woman with her own stationary line who is living her dream!  In the relatively short time she's been blogging, I've seen her grow and spread her wings and love being a part of her journey as she makes her way in the world.  She constantly  amazes me with her charm and creativity!





Another young blogger I love is from Finland.  Her blog  Lumo Lifestyle  means "enchant" in Finnish.  I love seeing things from her vantage point and part of the world!  She is one of the best things about blogging, which has given us a medium in which to cultivate a friendship that could have never been possible at any other time in history until now.  Blogland has become a global villiage.





Two other blogs that I've recently found and look forward to following are,  Karina Gentinetta  and The Dowsers Daughter.   Both of them just started blogging but from what I can tell... they are keepers!!
Definitely check them out when you get a chance... you'll see what I mean!






Happy Weekend!!

Sweet lady, you are TOO KIND. Thank you so much for the love. You feature some wonderful sites here; I am humble to be in this company. I can't wait to check them all out. Again, many thanks for such a warm welcome for this newbie!

Kathysue said...

Miss Terri, Thank you so much for the gracious mention on your beautiful blog. You are a dear, sweet and I might add talented person. To be mentioned here is truly an honor and really exciting to me. You know exactly how hesitant I was to do a blog so you of all people to love my blog ,means the world to me. Love you,Kathysue

I agree Terri. Even though I don't have my own blog yet, I have to admit I go away drooling and I mean literally drooling at all of these beautiful blogs you have turned me onto. Not only does my design imagination get ignited, but also because I have a BFA in Photography, I am taken away for hours by all the images- be it a vintage photo or an awesome pic of someone's home or piece of furniture, what have you... I was just discussing with my hairdresser that there is a bevy of talented woman bloggers out there presently and it is the new art movement. It is an art and it is deffo a woman's movement. The talent that is out there is absolutely amazing. P.S. I met my husband on a music site! Maybe one of the reason's I don't have my own blog. I am living with the love I found on-line! :-)

Terri, thank you for your kind words! I have loved to read your blog from the moment I found it and now I even see my own blog featured in it!!!

I hadn't even read many blogs before I started to write mine in August. I have ever since started to follow other blogs and have found via them so many interesting blogs and people with their own unique thoughts from all over the world.
