Let's Go Searching

I don't know about you, but I often stay within my own circle of blogs. I think we all feel comfortable reading up on what our blog friends are up too. So I have come up with a challenge. Should you choose to accept this mission here is what you need to do.


With the holidays right around the corner I thought it would be fun to find new blogs outside of your own circle that are geared towards holiday food and entertainment. I think we all like new recipes as well as holiday decorating tips. I know there are some great blogs out there that have fabulous recipes and I thought it would be fun to share these blogs.


Once you find an interesting blog, come back and post a comment and a link on why you like the blog. Of course there is an incentive for the best blog searcher and that would be a pillow slip of your choice from my Etsy shop. I think this will be fun and I do hope that you will join the search.


Yesterday was one of those days when nothing would go right, to much humidity in the air so much of my work ended up in the scrap pile. I was so exhausted last night that I forgot to post the winner of the Holiday stocking, so here it is! The winner is June from Laughing With Angels. I want to thank all of you who left such wonderful posts about your holiday traditions.


Happy mid-week to all of you. I do hope the rest of your week is full of blessings. Now let's go searching!

What a lovely thought!

I know I used to look at many more blogs before I started blogging. I think it can get so hectic we forget to search a bit further afield. So ... hopefully this weekend I will take up your challenge.. Have great week.. and thanks for the reminder to just enjoy the search! Julie
