Some of my favourite things...blogs
Roses are my favourite flower, but today I thought I'd share a few of my favourite blogs with you. These blogs inspire me for different reasons, but they all contribute to me spending a lot of time reading on line. This is by no means an exhaustive list...there is so much more inspiration out there.
Beth of Gathering Dust shares her love of buttons, vintage trims and making things with her hands. Collage, knitting, finding treasures in old boxes, Beth displays her creativity in many forms.
Dawn of The Feathered Nest has a beautiful blog where she shares her assemblages. She is an encourager, often providing links to new bloggers. Soft whites, creams, and coffee-coloured images are a trademark on her site. She is very generous about sharing images with her readers for their own creations.
Melissa at The Inspired Room writes thought-provoking posts about home decorating. And provides lots of photos to inspire. She's currently talking about Creative Concealment - those things we all do to cover up the imperfections we perceive in our homes.
"Creative Concealment: The act of camouflaging, hiding or disguising something that is ugly, distracting or unsightly with whatever creative means are necessary. This method requires far less money than resorting to the perfect solution, yet yields acceptable results that can be either temporary or permanent. "
At The House in the Woods, Britt-Arnhild shares her love of life, God and family with lyrical writing. She writes from Norway. Her beautiful photos make me really want to visit that part of the world.
There are more, so many more, but I'll save them for another day. Enjoy visiting!
