Fresh Inspiration

Hello Friends!
Don't we all love to discover new blogs to browse?
I know I do. After blogging for well over two years
I realized I have never created a post highlighting
some of my favorites blogs. Here are just a few.
Some are new, some are new to me and others are
friends I've know since the beginning of my journey.
Take a look and I hope you will be inspired.
Fresh lemons and limes. Spring hurry up please! Allyson from *No Place Like Home* shares
her home decorating ideas. Beautiful vignette!Darlene at *Fieldstone Hill*.
Her home is truly amazing and a must see.
Judy from *DIY by Design*.
Simply gorgeous makeovers and decorating.
Kim from *Dear Sweet Home*.
Classy and gorgeous all in one.
A must see! You will love this blog.
Liz from *Infuse With Liz* has a timeless
and elegant style. She's a sweet lady too.
Liz from *Savvy Seasons by Liz*
One of my all time favorites ever!
Her home is simply stunning!
Pam from *House of Hawthornes*.
She has a collection of unique finds.
Pay her a visit to meet Ben the guinea pig.
Stacey from *Poofing The Pillows* always
shares precious vignettes and delicious recipes.
She is one of the kindest bloggers around as well.
Vanna from *Delusions of Grandeur*.
Oh what beauty awaits you. Gorgeous!
If you didn't see your blog here it does not
mean I don't love ya. You're all just wonderful!
I plan to highlight several every month or so.
I read many blogs faithfully everyday.
Thank you for inspiring me today and always.
Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!

Hi Melissa,
Just stopping by to let you that I had put my blog on private again because I have had been invaded by spam. There were a lot of not so nice comments and my traffic feed is filled with some really bad sites. I don't know how this has happened but I'm going to work on it and I hope be back in a few days.
Thanks for understanding.
