2013 Coming to a Close

As the year comes to a close we reflect on all that has happened, good and bad, and think of changes to be made for the coming year. One of the changes that will happen here is that the puny little blog list on our blog page will become its own tab. It's not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to those who inspire us.

First and foremost we want to thank The Debster for sending us a link to Hannah's Hangout. It was Hannah and Hanna who gave us the courage to start our blog. Hannah is now heading Peacock Poise with her friend Iman. We wouldn't be here without you. 

We also have to thank Hannah for pointing us to Doll Diaries. What an awesome site?! Love it, Char and her crew, and all the great crafts, giveaways, and play ideas they inspire.

Early on we started following another Hannah and TL - both had great blogs. They are now co-writing other blogs. Hannah invited us into the AGVille's Doll Club. Lanie is our correspondent there.

Then we started to read more and more blogs. This is the list of fabulous blogs we follow:

I highly suggest you check them out - especially if you see one that is new to you. (Sorry, I think you will have to cut and paste - not sure if the links will or will not work.)

For you crafty people who know how to sew, then these sewing blogs are for you (Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog belongs here as well as above):

When it comes to doll reviews, you must check out The Toy Box Philospher! Great detail with comparisons!

And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention a great tea resource...The Tea Maestro. He shares lots of great tea history and etiquette tips. Plus much more.

Thank you very much for a great year of inspiration! Keep up the good work! I have a feeling we missed someone, please forgive us if we did.

Much love for happy blogging throughout 2014.



PS. These blogs are just starting out; stop by and inspire them to be great.

  1. Glad to hear that you've had such a good time with the blogs. You should consider submitting your Folk Fest photo series to the organizers to use with their advertising.

    Happy New Year!

    1. :-D While the pictures and posts might be fun and interesting they don't quite fall into "era approved" advertising. ;-)

  3. I knew we missed at least one blog.
    One Girl and Her Many Dolls is another good one.
