Lovely Blogs - 2013 Collection

Back in 2007 I started compiling a list of lovely blogs to visit because we were all in search of beautiful and inspiring new things.  Whether it's for the photos or the friendships, we have all enjoyed finding new "kindred spirits".  I have been honored to be the "hostess" of the collection over the years.  

With this new year, it's time to freshen up our list and begin a new collection.   Don't worry, the previous collections are still available for viewing (2010-2012 and 2007-2009).  It's just that those lists have gotten pretty long after two years and sometimes have broken links, etc. So I thought that with the start of 2013, we could begin a new official collection!

I would love for you to add your blog to our collection.  It's a great way to make new friends so even if you were on the previous lists, be sure to add your link to the new collection so newcomers will find you.  All you need to do is use the linky below.  In the "name" field, just put the name of your blog.  In the link/url field use your general blog address (not the address of a specific post).
And when you're done here, stop over to French Cupboard and share the link to your inspiring Pinterest boards!

Share the love... add the button to your blog & link it back to this post so your friends can link up too!

  16. What a great idea. I have bookmarked your page so I can come back again and visit the new ones!

    Okay, one of my New Years resolutions is taking the time to leave more notes for my blogging friends! I always read posts in a reader and it makes it hard to leave a comment or two. But I do not miss a post! Love seeing the things you share and your lovely home. I wish I had more time to blog, but I work part time at our local library. I wanted to share with you my new blog, just opened this week.... it will be for my vingage and digital work... including printables you might enjoy. I also have my home and garden site, This week I am doing a look back to my spring garden.

    Hope to be able to connect more in this new year. I am spending less time on Facebook and gave up twitter and everything else. A girl needs time to create, decorate and GARDEN ya know!

    God bless....Brooke

    Adding the page to my blogroll.

  22. Thank you so much for letting me add our blog on the list. I linked up before, but it's always nice to start the new year off, as you said. What a wonderful thing that you are doing. Have a blessed weekend.

  23. Thank you for providing a wonderful spot to list our blogs. I hope to visit some of the other blogs that are new to me. Thanks again, Laura

  24. Thank you for hosting this. I am fairly new to the blog world. I don't blog daily but once in a while I get a whim. lol And would love to share with others when I do. I am excited about finding new blogs I can follow as well.

  25. I am a new blogger, and love to visit the blogs of kindred spirits who love the Lord, their gardens, and their families as I do.

    Thank you for a place to share these wonderful blogs.

  26. I made an error and if it can't be fixed, I want to you to know I am SO SORRY. When joined the party at Creative Cain Cabin just now, I thought I was clicking one picture and didn't realize that the image that linked up was your Lovely Blogs button which I have on my sidebar. Usually on a party there is an x which allows the "linker" to delete their blog link, but this time there was no x. I contacted Dawn at CCC and asked her if she could delete my link.

    PLEASE forgive me.

    1. No worries. I'm sure Dawn can fix it on her end. Have a wonderful morning. Blesings... Polly

  27. I'm a French blogger, and so happy to share with you. I'm happy to be your 1429 follower !
