Beautiful Blogs

The front door of Lea at CiCi's Corner, decorated for fall

It's amazing how something as simple as changing my blog design and template has gotten me excited about blogging again!

(As you may or may not notice, I've tinkered even a bit more with my design. I now have a beautiful background from Hot Bliggity Blogs. They have an incredible selection of beautiful free blog backgrounds, as does Shabby Blogs.)

Since getting back into blogging, I'm discovering some beautiful blogs that are new to me.

These blogs are not only physically beautiful--they have a certain gracious, serene atmosphere that just makes you want to spend time there.

Here are some I'm loving right now:

--CiCi's Corner Do go check out her post in which she has pictures of her fall's breathtakingly gorgeous.

Cherie, AKA Tish Jett, is author of A Femme d'un Certain Age

--A Femme d'un Certain Age This means "a woman of a certain age," which is how the French graciously and complimentarily describe women--well, around my age! It's so much nicer than saying "a middle-aged woman," don't you think? Anyway, here's how the author describes her blog:

"A Femme d'Un Certain Age is dedicated to women 40ish to whateverish and every detail herein is chosen for you -- for us -- to wear, to amuse, to use. . . And always, always with a French twist.

Stay with me and I guarantee you will re-think age, beauty, well-being and style.

Together we are about to embark on a life-enhancing cultural exchange with the masters of looking fabulous at every age: Les Femmes Françaises."

A lovely image from French Charming

--Since I'm a sucker for all things French (you'll notice a theme here!), I immediately fell in love with French Charming.

This blog hasn't been updated since August 23, apparently because its author is undergoing some physical problems that make it painful for her to type. But I'm going to enjoy delving into the archives.

--The Paris Apartment Lovely, evocative photographs that make me want to go to Paris, NOW.

Those are just a few...I'll be sharing more in the weeks to come. If you have a beautiful blog you'd like to recommend--even if it's your own--please let me know in my comments section! There can never be too much beauty spread across the internet.

Now where are the "all things Irish" blogs? lol

Lea said...

Oh, am so honored to be on your blog. It's such making a new friend in "blogland." Your blog looks very nice and most inviting. A most wonderful week-end is wished for you!

Hey Audz...well, I haven't found any all things Irish blogs, but when I do, I'll certainly post about them! I'm obsessed with Ireland, Scotland, England AND France!

Love the coral and turquoise color scheme - amazing how something as easy as putting up a new background can fire up the creativity.

As a fellow "woman of a certain age", I'll be checking out that blog as well!

How sweet of you to highlight other blogs! I am a big fan of Mrs. Lea at Cici's corner myself and can tell you that she is as beautiful in person as she is on her blog! I will have to try to find time to hop around to some of these others! Thanks for the suggestions!

"Nesting" is one thing I do not do well. I think it's because I equate nesting with having more stuff to clean around, and I hate to clean. However, I do enjoy admiring others homes and spaces that are beautifully "nested" for each season. Thanks for sharing links to these "beautiful spaces"!
