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 decorating...it'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.
