Favorite {Blog} Friday

Beautiful, Vintage, Colorful, Inspiring, Mothering Love, Graceful....

these are all words that describe my Favorite {Blog} Friday. I read this blog daily and I love every post she writes....I get the same "giddy" feelings when I read some of my favorite magazines.

Many times I want to pack my bag and meet her at Starbucks {I think she likes Starbucks as much as I do!} to chit chat then go and do some amazing "shopping". This amazing and very talented blogger is....

Lu Lu & co.

She says.....

{Blogging enriched my life in so many ways. It has opened my eyes to so many "talented people". So many wonderful, funny, heartwarming, and life changing stories. Blogging has made me challenge myself to use my ideas, instead of just "thinking of ideas". Blogging has provide a way for me to share my thrill for "vintage". It has also provide a connection with other people from all over who love the similar things, who are moms, and love to share there own story. It had let me think of my passions and dreams and be encouraged to give them a go.}

Her life will inspire you~ I think she has more talent in her little "pinky" finger than most have in their entire body. She throws the most AmAzInG parties for her kids from puppy {Love} parties to dreamy GaRdEn themes....

LuLu must live in one AWESOME area because she seems to shop at some of the most amazing Vintage shops. She can also find some of the best deals and if it's not just what she wanted~ she can seem to make it work with some {Creative} lOvE.

When she is not Partying or Shopping...she can make a simple basket of band aids make you "ooohhh and ahhh"....

I think her reason for doing all she does is due to the love she has for her family~ Her home reflects the love inside and the memories made behind her front door. I have falling in love with her blog and I know you will too~

Grab your teacup and settle in your chair...her blog is truly an experience~

Oh by the way.....

Dearest Lulu,

I am SO SO SO copying this...any words of wisdom before I do~

p.s. Today, I am acknowledging all the wonderful people who comment on my blog daily. If it weren't for you, I probaly would not blog....your kind words, advice and encouragement is what makes this thing we call "blogging" worth it!

Thank you to everyone who "follows" my crazy and really just "normal" mommy life!

My Surprise Spring Giveaway goes to this "fine" follower....

Living Locurto


enjoy your Starbucks(my favorite place) gift card...wish we could have one together~

Be most special thing about blogging is making the conection to "friends like you. My hub hears all about Sandy Toes. so funny, non bloggers (which I know a lot of probable think I'm nuts cause I bring up my blogging friends all the time) and they remind me I have never met them.. bit your tongue I tell them. I feel I have by reading there "story".

Hi! :) In answer to your question, I got the black wooden platter several years ago. It is handpainted by the artist Jan Dutcher. I saw her work in a magazine, and called the store to order it!
