Kari is holding a party in honor of Tara Frey and her fantastic new book Blogging for Bliss!

Go check out Kari's blog and see who is attending the party.

I blog for BLISS

B logging is such fun

Connecting with people - who 'get' us - who undertand why we get a buzz out of some piece of rusted junk!!

L aughter - how much brighter our days and nights become once we 'click' onto a blog that is telling us something funny or embarrassing that has happened
I nspiring us with your art, craft, home decor and more

S haring and caring with our lives, loves and artistic creations

erendipity according to the dictionary - the faculty of making desirable but unsought for discoveries - this describes how I feel about blogging

Hi Alison...thanks so much for your comment. Love your blog...your photos are stunning!

I agree....blogging is bliss because I get to play w/ people who get me. Not many in my "real world" understand my affection for old stuff... nor do they understand my attraction to crowns & fairies & the like. And taking pictures of food & decor goes completely over their heads! LOL

Really enjoyed the photos of your hot air ballon ride...what an amazing experience it must have been!
