Of course there are many, many more but you will find many of them in my next favorite things.
As you all know I am a blog stalker and this year I hit the JACK POT!
There are so many talented women out there and I am finding them one by one. Women who can cook, bake, sew, decorate,spend wisely,take amazing pictures and the list goes on and on. I wish I could list them all, and actually I have. They are on my side bar but I will give you a peek at at few of my very, very favorites!
Jackie (I am one of the lucky ones who gets to use the short version of her name...LOL)
from Purple Chocolat Home.
OMGosh is this lady full of talent she fits in the ALL the categories I listed above. Take a stroll over and visit her and her amazing home!
And then there is Joni at Red Couch Recipes. She is actually Jackie's sister and equally as talented. I know each time I visit her blog my family will be smiling at dinner that night!
Then there is Melanie...at true southern sister of the heart. I found her blog Southern Comfort by accident and then just fell in love with her. Because I too am a southern girl living a life somewhere other than home. Take a peek at her blog and I bet you fall in love with her too!
Becca over at Adventures In Decorating just knocks my socks off. This lady has a beautiful home with enough flair to make it elegant and enough love to make it comfortable. In fact I know I will be
Want to learn how to set a table properly, turn a plain napkin into a work of art, create tablescapes that will amaze your guest then head over to Between Naps On The Porch. You will find all that and more. I use it for a reference guide all the time.
I love beautiful jewelry and I bet you do to. And if it fits into my budget I like it even more. Theresa at Theresa's Creations can give you just that. Beautiful jewelry at an affordable price. You can buy pieces she has already on hand or she can custom design a piece for you. Her beautiful jewelry is also sold at Anastasia's Attic.
You know when you see the most amazing cakes and cupcakes and you think they are sooo beautiful but then you bite into them and they taste like sawdust...well my friends and fellow bloggers are you in for a treat. My sweet friend Tatum (don't you just love her name) at Bumble Cakes does an incredible job at decorating them but they taste is OMGOsh slap your mama good!! She has so many wonderful flavors to choose from and she will help you come up with a design to fit any occasion. I have never had a cupcake that tasted so good. If I didn't already live in Utah I would move here just to eat her yummy treats!
Ever at a loss as to what to cook for dinner....breakfast and lunch too for that matter. Well look no more. Because if you can't find something that will please even your pickiest eaters her at Sister's Cafe then you might as well just give up and eat cold cereal forever. These ladies rock the recipe world! Plus they are all so stinking cute you will just love them.
Have you ever received a really cute invitation announcing a birth, a wedding, birthday party...etc...and said WOW that is so cute. Where did they have this made? Well, I will tell you....they got it from my sweet BFF Tammy over at Show and Tell Designs.
Do you ever go to yard sales and see a piece of furniture, and old table dresser, or chair for instance and it has seen some love over the years...you know it has dents and nicks and cuts and you wonder why would any one want that? I will tell you why...because there are some very talented people out there who can look at a piece of furniture and see what it once was and what it could be again. I have two beautiful chairs and a table in my bedroom that I was given for Christmas that proves it. OK, so I told you my BFF was talented and could design beautiful invitations and announcements for but she is also one of those people of vision was talking about too. Check out her trash to treasure redo's at Mychaez Her beautiful creations or should we say re-creations are also found at Upon the Shelf at Gardner Village
Ok, this posting is already waaay longer than I intended and I have only listed a few recipes and a few blogs. I knew that would happen. I hope you have not fallen asleep! Guess I will have to do another post later and include some of my other favorite things.
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2011.
