Fresh InspirationTake Two

Hello Everyone!
A few weeks ago I featured a few of my favorite blogs
and most of you seemed to enjoy it so I decided to make
it a monthly series. Let's pay them a visit and get inspired.
Here they are in order of their first name like last time.
I list a huge blog roll and have many buttons displayed.
At the top of my blog I also feature a *Blog of the Week*.
Just so you all know I do this for *you*. It's nice to share.
If you don't have a blog roll listed on your blog you should add it.
It's always fun to browse other blog rolls as well.
*All photos enlarge when clicked*
Amy at *All Things Home* displays lovely and unique items.
Barb at *Grits and Glamour* is a bargain finding queen!
Check out her bathroom redo for under $150.00.
Jen at *Easy Peasy Chic* created a gorgeous photo wall.
She also sells wonderful vinyl wall words. Check her out!
Look at the stunning nursery created by
Jodie at *Love, Laughter and Decor'*.
You will adore this blog!
Kim at *Cheap Chic Home* is amazing!
Look at her gorgeous fridge top and bottle drying rack.
Lori at *A Time For Everything* created these precious hearts.
She is an incredible cook and photographer as well.
You must visit Roz at *La Bella Vita* for the most
mouth watering recipes ever. You will leave hungry.
One of the most unique and prettiest homes I've seen
around belongs to Sonya at *Beyond the Screen Door*.
Look at the darling chalkboard created by
Tammy at *Beatrice Banks*. So pretty!
Thanks to everyone who entered my spring garden
giveaway this past week. I wish I had 100's of gifts to give.
The winner is...*Imparting Grace*. Congrats to Richella!
Have a wonderful week!

I enjoyed the last one that you had posted and am glad that you're going to continue it. I really do find more fabulous blogs this way, because I trust your judgement of other quality blogs!

I have a blog roll, but it is a link on my side bar that you have to 'click on' to read and so far, I've had your blog listed as the my absolutely favorite, one and only listed, decorating blog! Seriously, I've never found any other that I've enjoyed as much as yours! Blessings and hugs of gratitude, Roz
