Blog Browsing

Hiding from the rain - via Moodboard {allure magazine}



A great pink sofa - via the Neo-traditionalist



A pretty cluster wall at Kate Spade - via Delight by Design



LV Balloons - via My Little Paris Blog via Pink Lemonade



Old glass bottles filled with flowering branches via Shelter via Fric and Frac




An original marble topped Victorian sink - via Moodboard


These days I am finding it harder and harder to put aside some time to spend reading my favourite blogs. Once upon a time there was only a handful of blogs I considered my favourite but these days there are just so many great ones out there I find it difficult to keep up!

Last night I spent a few hours trawling through back posts on some fantastic blogs I have recently stumbled across. I thought I would post a few things I loved from these blogs here today to end the week.

Maybe if this rain continues through the weekend I might just snuggle under the blankets and do some more blog browsing. My boys are away on a father/son trip so there should be lots of time for me this weekend!

See you next time.

I love those LV balloons and the old glass bottles!
I know what you mean about reading blogs. I subscribe to about 80, and I get so overwhelmed if I haven't been on my reader for a couple of days that I just have to mark them all as read! xx

the NEO-traditionalist said...

So touched to have been included. That pink sofa is in my dream home in England... The best part is that after I posted about it one of my readers wrote and informed me she lived just down the road from it in East Sussex! Wonderful woman and we've been corresponding ever since. Love how small the world has become thanks to my little blog : ) XOXO

La Petite Gallery said...

We are expecting rain here in Canada too :) our temperatures have been rising nicely ... plus 15 degrees today but there is still some snow on the ground and of course things could change very quickly. Roll on Spring!
