Blogs I like...

I mentioned a few days ago that I my intent for this blog wasn't for it to be a recipe blog.

So, what -is- my intent?

Good question. I'm still working on an answer.

In the meantime, I thought I'd share some of the blogs that I enjoy reading.

A Touch of Dutch is the blog of a fellow American living in The Netherlands. She writes about life and has some darn good informative posts about life in The Netherlands. There are also tons of good language links, and I really like the "Dutch word of the week" in her sidebar.

Two Cheese Please makes wonderful things like rainbow scarves, handcarved rubber stamps, and the cutest stuffed goat I've ever seen.

Blogger Buster is really good to learn little tips and techniques on how to make your blog better. It's the only reason I managed to get my cute header with Henrietta sewing to work.

Org Junkie has some good ideas on how to get things organized and also hosts Menu Plan Monday each week. I don't have time to read all the submissions on MPM, but I try to go through a few every week to glean new recipe ideas.

I've also been getting a kick out of the posts on Confessions of an Apron Queen. She hosts Vintage Thingie Thursday, which I've participated in the past few weeks.

Tammy's Recipes hosts Kitchen Tip Tuesday, and I have been shamelessly learning interesting things I never would've figured out on my own there.

What are some of your favorite blogs?

Two fantastic quilting mamas. I squeal whenever I see a new blog post from Oh Fransson in my Bloglines.

http://mayamade.blogspot.com/ makes the most beautiful, natural things, and I really just adore her most recent post: http://mayamade.blogspot.com/2008/10/on-my-desk_15.html - good advice for everyone!

And http://thesmallobject.com/stenopad/wordpress gives me my fill of thrift, kitch, stamping, and tiny objects.

Hope this has given you some new reading!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and
visual appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
Exceptional Blog!
