Why I love Blogging!! & Pink Saturday

Blogging is like posting an article in my own magazine. Though I'm not very good with words, I try and make it up with pictures.
I also love blogging because its truly inspiring. For one, I cannot wait to share what treasures I found or created with all my friends in blog world... Second, I just love visiting everyone to see what they are up to. Its amazing the creations and art I have seen. It makes me want to get busy and make our life beautiful too. Not that its not, but it can always get better right?? Most of all, my friends. Friends who are creative in their own ways. I love you all. I thank you for taking time to visit me every time and your comments mean the world to me.

I read somewhere on a blog (sorry can't remember where), the author said, wouldn't it be nice if all of us friends on blog lived in this one neighbourhood. And what a beautiful neighborhood that will be too. We'll even turn the Country Club into the Crafting Club... he he!!

What inspires me??
Music inspires me, people and their lives, history or events, movies are inspirational too. I grew up in Europe and was surrounded with beautiful architecture and I love art from any eras you can imagine, Victorian, Rococo, Baroque... I had to have my version of Pinky and the Blue boy in my house. My mom does, and so does my grandma...

Pink always marries with Blue

My affection right now is on shoes...

Rococo Era

You know these!!!

Or Prima Donna's shoes on the Phantom of the Opera?

I'm in love..... with my shoes!!!

I did get the pair of shoes finished ( Blogged about the one shoe previously) ... I couldn't take my eyes off of them... And another pair is in the works right now, hint hint...this pair in robin's egg blue. I am just having soooo much fun working on them. My husband is going to get a heart attack when he sees this pair in our living room. I cannot wait to have my studio ready. Then I can splurge in whatever I want...

I am joining two parties here. I hope I pulled it off. One is Beautiful Blogging hosted by the most talented Joy Jones from Cupid Charms. Please visit her blog for a list of all participants and visit other beautiful blogs.

The other is the most popular Pink Saturday Hosted by Beverly from How Sweet the Sound. Visit her blog for a list of Pink "Eye Candy" Blogs.

Thank you for coming by to visit...

Hugs to all

Love the other shoe! My grandma used to have a Pinky and Blue Boy too. She used to keep them wrapped up safe in her closet and I would love it when she got them down for me to peek at!

I found you through Joy's Blogging Party, and I'll be back. I love Marie Antoinette as well and adore those shoes. I wish I could learn how to make those. They are truly beautiful.

Hi Sonia,
I agree with your lovely post and you said it so well. I love, love, love your shoes. Being a shoeaholic, I want a pair of those!!
I also have the book Sew Pretty Homestyle. It is an inspiration when or if I can ever have some time to sew. Always seem to be at the paint table. LOL!!

So nice to see you, good luck in my giveaway.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I would so love to live in that neibourhood. We could have block crafting parties! I love the shoes they are beautiful. I love those kind of small heeled slip on shoe, becasue they look beautiful and don't totally kill your feet to wear them and give you a bit of a lift. How could you ask for anything more!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Tatieva said...

Oh, ce qu'elles sont belles, élégantes et raffinées, ces petites chaussures roses à la Marie-Antoinette !
En France aussi, nous aimons beaucoup Marie-Antoinette, grâce à elle, nous avons des croissants pour le petit-déjeuner !
Kisses from France,
