Simply Saturday

Ahhhhhhh...Saturday. Here are a few posts from this week that I found interesting, inspiring or just plain fun.

My bloggy friend Nikki from Blah, Blah, Blah, blog (my favorite blog name ever) introduced me to a wonderfully talented gal at Designs by Gollum. Apparently, I've been living under a rock ;-) because this was the first time I've been to her blog. But look at this wonderful creation made by combining two pieces that she already had.


I just met Carrie from Buzzings of a Queen Bee this week. She has a new blog but is off to a rip-roaring start with this wonderfully colorful project. I love it! The color. The images. Everything!

You've all probably seen this already but I am in love with Pat's dining room makeover on Back Porch Musings. The before and after pictures are both so beautiful that at first I wasn't sure which was which. The blue color in the new dining room is absolute perfection.



I just can't help but share this fantastic find. Meg from Bode22 found my blog this week and I'm so thrilled. Just look at the fantastic clocks that she makes! I'm absolutely smitten! Now don't go buying all of her stuff before I have a chance to pick one. :-)
Do you know Jen at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam? If not, you need to go meet her. She is sweet, funny, beautiful and oh-so-real. How she manages to get herself dressed in the morning when she has 5 kids is beyond me. How she manages to do anything beyond that boggles my mind. I love her post about helping directing her sister (mom of 10) on a big furniture makeover.

Thank you so much for the compliment of showing my dining room!

I've enjoyed seeing your other posts.

I have similar chairs, to your black chairs. They're on the back porch, painted cream. I love how yours look in black.

I must have been living under the same rock because most of these blogs are new to me too! Off to check them all out...

Oh, you are too sweet, and I feel honored. My laptop is down for the count...no hope, my van broke down on the side of the road today...just as I found the huge neighborhood yard sale (sigh), but I will get something onto my blog by tonight, since you made my day...hee hee. Priorities, priorities.:)

Hi Kimba! Thank you so much for giving me a little plug! I was so flattered when I saw all my comments saying they found me from you. Wow, that's the first time anyone's done that for me, you can tell I am all giddy. :) Have a great Sunday!!
