Lovely Blogs NON-party

Update:  We have a new 2013 collection - Please stop by and add your blog link!

I'm testing the waters...
It's been raining here all week so it seemed like a good time to try out something new. I found this new linky system and I'd like to try it out. Well, it's new to me. Perhaps you've seen it around before but I haven't and I'd like to give a whirl.

Would you mind testing it out with me? I know, there's supposed to be a blog party or a theme or some reason for a bunch of supremely lovely blogs to link up. But since we aren't having a party, I think we should just make a proclamation that we are a bunch of lovely bloggers! If you have a lovely blog, sign up below. And let's take a moment to visit each other too...
Here's the first collection of lovely blogs that began back in 2007:
Let's start a new Collection of Lovely Blogs

  1. Polly, this is a great way to test a new linky thingy. I am planning a wedding themed bloggy party soon, so I'd love to know how to do this linkup ~ I really like the pics with the name of the blog below!
