Blog Love

I’m back and blogging, but during the month while I was not writing on my own page, I  spent ample time checking in on the lives of others. Mostly strangers…but women, younger and older than I,  who I find amusing because they are interested in the same things that I am interested.  Do you know how comforting it is to know other people set  a frilly tables and photography it Just Because? It gives me such peace realizing I am not alone in my preoccupation with presentation. It is very strange how one can start to regulary follow the lives of people you don’t even know….it’s like people watching but a zillion times better!

Here are a few great blogs I happened upon and now count as favorites:

Gracious Southern Living – This blogger hearts black and white, burlap, monograms and took time out of a weekend escape to visit the grave of Jon Benet – it was like I was looking at myself in 20 years…how I hope I am this fun!

Between Naps on the Back Porch  – First, what a sweet name?? I love it! But I’m guessing this blogger doesn’t snooze all too much  because she’s way too busy setting the most terrific tables.  She’s even inspired a Tablescape Thursday in the blog world that has women all over the internet pulling out their good china in the name of Themes – adorable! I am obsessed with finding these little chairs to copy what she’s done for displaying dessert – don’t you love it??

Glamourous Life of a Housewife:  Whitney is the name of this glam wife and mommy, and she’s so happy and sparkly I bet she glows in the dark! She also shares yummy recipes  (Dan loved this one) and fabulous pictures of parties her mom throws with cute ideas  I love to steal. I found this blog Google  imaging “baby shower” and fell in love with this one. We both share a love for dishes, and even have some of thes same patterns therefore  I know she must be a very fine person.

The Bonafide Preppy Bride: I credit this bridal blogger for helping me find my own wedding monogram. A google search for “monogrammed drink stirs” landed me on her sight, which took me to Etsy and months later, I’m still following her. This blogger is an amazing DIYer and even though she’s all married now she’s still dishing out great wedding tips.
