the wonderful world of bloggging

I have already fallen behind on my posts, but my daily visits to favorite blogs remain a priority. The creativity of some bloggers is amazing to me. And it takes so many different forms - creative writers, sewing wizards, crafting superstars! You can always find something to spark your imagination. One of my favorite aspects of various sites is their list of favorite blogs. It can occupy hours of my day if I let it.

My project for March is to share some of the greats blogs I have found. That will be an easy way to get me going and on track to becoming a better blogger.

This was also in my package

Heidi also sent these wonderful red napkins that I have used on my kitchen table. Couldn't bring myself to storing all the vintage Christmas ornaments so I used a few red, pink and silver ones for a border around this candle. Last night I was thinking about the name of this blog and realized some might think everything in my home is white. So not true and I will post a few photos to show that I love color. Maybe my subtitle should be "white on the outside, colored on the inside". A few pictures of my interior might show up on another post. Today I'm too busy to decide what I want photographed.

There are times when I have to leave the house in order to keep myself from sitting in front of the computer for hours or all day! There are soooo many interesting bloggers out there with lists of the interesting blogs they follow. It's endless and I love it.

My Valentine Swap

Today I received the best swap package thanks to the world's best swap partner, Heidi.
This is one of the fabulous items I found in my package. We share the same decorating style so it fit right in with my decor. And that is my daughter's senior picture which is another of my favorite things. Heidi made my pillow and she sells them on Etsy. You can visit her shop to view all the designs. The presentation Heidi employs is as charming as the pillows. If you visit Heidi, please tell her I sent you. Tomorrow I will show you what else was in my gift box...

I laughed and laughed

I came across a great blog last night and laughed out loud. April is a very talented writer and dancer... just watch some of her YouTube videos to see what I mean. Dancing must be the universal way of amusing your kids. I just can't quite bring myself to post a video of myself for the amusement of those outside my family. April's lack of inhibition makes her soooo likable. I want her to live next door!
