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!

Love all of those blogs beautiful and inspiring.
Your rose is lovely...such a beautiful colour.

In answer to your question...I am teaching a pillow...needle felted top with fabric, trims etc. (on my blog now) and I am doing a landscape next week.

I will be doing the Edmonton Doll Show in October and I do the Creative Stitches Show here in Calgary. I don't really do Craft fairs now...for one thing, there aren't many left here...I know you have a big show in Abbotsford in the spring...but I have never done that one. Do you do shows?

Thanks so much for visiting.
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Lorrie, thanks for the list of blogs (and for including me in it!). I always love when bloggers share what other blogs they are enjoying reading. I will check these out! I hope you have a Creative Concealment to share tomorrow!

Happy day,

These are definitely winning blogs! Several of these are regulars for me. A couple I am just becoming familiar with.
