Now to nominate 10 of my favorites! 

The Magic Onions: I love the whimsical feeling of this blog, the amazing projects this mom comes up with and her fairy photos are awesome.  

Slugs on the Refrigerator: I love the photography on this blog and the honesty behind all the posts.  Her crochet patterns are beautiful and seeing the photos of where she lives makes me want to visit Europe that much more.

Frontier Dreams:  This blog is awesome! Nicole is so honest and shares her love for nature, crafting, homemade, and Waldorf.  I just love seeing her posts! She is a talented knitter and makes me want to learn to knit and has great ideas for projects with kids.  She also hosts a fun Keep Calm Craft on Series on Tuesdays. 

Linda Wagner: I found this blog a little while back and I love her clean eating recipes and juicing/healthy smoothie recipes.  Her cauliflower spaghetti is awesome as is her green smoothie and her green eggs and roasted tomatoes. 

Posie Gets Cozy:  I love the photography on this blog! Her home is awesome and I have found myself wanting to add in quite a few of her things in my own home. 

Smile and Wave: I love the vintage style this girl has! Her vintage collection and decor is fab and I hope to one day have as many awesome vintage pieces as she does. 

Loisirspassion: This is my fab. French friend's blog and I love reading it and seeing her beautiful crochet creations as well as her art that she creates. She is a total sweetheart and if you don't speak French you can easily translate her blog to English on her sidebar. 

AshleyAnnPhotography: When I first found this blog I was drawn to it because I loved her style, the way she added in so many vintage touches with some modern things and her craftiness.  Now after being an avid reader for so long I love seeing not only her crafty posts but her posts sharing memories with her kids, her honesty, and her openness. 

Wicked Artsy: I don't know if its allowed to send an award back to the person who gave you one but I am going to do it! :) I love seeing this girl's art and her reviews on books and patterns.  Her kitty photos at the end of the posts are awesome and remind me of myself....if you looked through the photos on my phone I am pretty sure I have just as many of my cats as I do my daughter lol :) 

I am leaving the last spot open.  I am always open to finding new inspiring blogs, do you guys have any awesome blogs that should be in my top ten? :) 

Thanks again for the nomination Lisa!! hugs :)

    1. I love going on google for fun photos, thankfully a lot of my facebook friends post some great cat/animal ones too :) It is def. fun finding out more about the person's blog you are reading! Hope you are having a great week as well!
