I made some new bloggy friends in the week post Christmas, the week in which I was supposed to be cleaning out my in-tray (oh I was so creative in the ways I managed to avoid that task..... movies, blogging, board games, cleaning, sorting, decluttering.....). I know how much I appreciated an introduction when I first started my blog, way back when, (thank-you Anna from Absolutely Beautiful Things) so I thought I would 'pay it forward' and introduce you these lovely blogs.
Kelly, at Kelly Green Interiors, is an Aussie Interior Decorator who has been so obsessed with design blogs over the past few years that she has decided to give in to the force and start up her own. She has fabulous taste and has already inspired me to 'toile' my next powder room. You can meet Kelly HERE.
Lisa, at Le Bonheur, is a 'chandelier kindred spirit', based in country Tamworth. She purchased a chandelier off me last year and painstakingly assembled all the dangly bits with the help of her daughter. (I still remember sitting cross legged on the filthy floor of my Great Room, a cross cut saw screaming at the other end, tradesmen walking over me, delicately hanging the crystals on my chandelier, in time for the electrician to install it!). Lisa commented on my blog but I didn't put two and two together until I saw a picture of her gorgeous chandelier. Isn't blogging wonderful ....it brings everyone within reach of friendship. You can meet Lisa HERE.
Sidetrack.. sort of spooky moment...speaking of blogging bringing people together..... standing in a queue at the sales in town, clutching some shells for the jars in my bathroom, chatting away to the lady behind me in the queue... all of a sudden, she says, "oh I know you, I read your blog"....no name, no photo on my blog and she still knew who I was.... yes, what was I saying?... about bringing everyone together.... what amazing times we live in. I still remember being blown away seeing Sandra Bullock purchase airline tickets over the internet in the 1995 movie, 'The Net'! "Wow, just imagine the day that you will be able to do that"!!!!... and here we are...2010..... all so connected!
Say Hi to my new friends and have a great Monday! (it's all rainy here and still stinking hot!)
