Vlad emailed this week while I was off moving (photos to come shortly) to bring my attention to his super-fabulous home office that I should have included in my post last week. It's such a great space I thought it deserved it's own post. Would I ever kill for all that book storage. I'd have to go out and buy more books.
Hope you saved room for seconds. Here's part 2 of our holiday reading guide. More fab blogs from around the world. Now it's your turn. Leave the links you want to share in the comments section and maybe we'll all make it through the silly season.
What a week! Work is so busy at this time of the year and Christmas cleaning is just as overwhelming as Christmas shopping. Today I took a little break from putting together the holiday reading guide to work in my little garden. Some of you may know that we're suffering through a very serious drought in Australia. My home town is under level 6 water restrictions which means no hoses and only bucket watering of gardens 3 days a week for a few hours only. When we moved in the garden was dead.
Now there are signs of life and my biceps are a little bigger with all the bucket carrying. Of course there have to be some thrifted finds in this post. I did manage to find a couple of cute little pots which I planted up today and the sweetest tiny brass watering can. A lot of my garden is potted to conserve water and my garden beds are heavily mulched. Time to go back to sweeping the patio if I can.
If you're like me the thought of your favourite blogs shutting up shop for the holidays is causing your palms to sweat and your heart rate to rise. Without you're daily fix what are you to do? I have the same addiction. Last Christmas when I was new to the blogosphere I went into withdrawal when the few bloggers I was reading then went on well deserved holidays. So with that in mind I've put together a holiday reading list. Some of these blogs are brand new. Others have been around for much longer. Some you will know, others you won't. There are interior design blogs, graphic design, home renovation and some much more. They come from all over the world and not all are in english. I'm a long time lurker on a few and others I've only found in the past few days. By no means exhaustive this list hopefully will help you fill those "empty" days. Part 2 is still to come.
P.S. Medical authorities warn that gorging on new blogs may be a health hazard. Take your time. There's lots in their archives and there are even more new blogs on their blog rolls. Click on the banners to go directly to the blog.
