Perplexed Sometimes

I really need to comment on this as it has me bewildered.

Have any of you, when you're viewing your own blog, look to the "next" blog as it says up in the extreme left hand corner of the browser? It's just on the opposite side of where you see your name, new post, design and sign out on the right side. I did just recently, having been inquisitive for a while about it but never cared enough to click to the "next" blog.

Now, mine is a chick blog, but the several ones next came up as scent or various other things, but not anything near to what I blog about. Some of them hadn't been updated for a couple of years. Some even said they gave up blogging. I don't know if they just happened to forget to delete the blog or not but they still showed up. Lots of them. Some even had absolutely nothing to do with my blog. I thought perhaps they might be similar blogs but nope, nothing at all I'd be interested in. Very perplexing. Give it a try sometime and see what you come up with.

I really like the look in this room. Very elegant, vintage and rustic.

Polka dots are also a favorite of mine. I don't have much around the house in dots but I could if I found the right stuff.

A French flour container with gorgeous flowers.

Another French looking dining room.

A tiny writing area.

A beautiful old lamp to a beautiful entry.

You know by now how I feel about decorated bottles, right? You should!

Aaaaaah, to have that much fabric that neatly organized would be a blessing.

A quiet lunch with a friend.

Exquisitely saved for her posterity.

Love these colors.

Beautifully elegant chandelier with rusty elements along with silver and rose make a lovely vignette.

Nice spot for a glass of lemonade to relax.

Pink Sofa I lust over.

I have several of these hanging on my doors in my home. I stuff them with sawdust, which is light, and fragrance them with fragrant oils I buy online.

I have so wanted to paint our pine dresser but it just isn’t getting done in the near future. I like this one though.

A vintage cabinet we’d all like to have.

A very unusual bathroom.

Pretty window.

  1. Hi Connie! Just a few days ago, I tried out that Next Blog feature you mention and it's just as you say. I did not pursue it. Thanks once again for the pictures. Among my favourites this time around are the chandelier, pine dresser, vintage cabinet (what a beauty. I want it! I want it! I also love the two armoires stocked with fabric. I love that one is green and the other one is blue. The bottles are splendid! Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I have never visited the next blog! Maybe I should....

    I think I want to move in and live in this post...and just move from photo to photo....OMGoodness, you and I like the same things!

    LOVE this post!

  3. I have followed that "next" button several times. If I have time to waste (lol) I will visit other blogs I follow and click on that button just to see where it takes me. Sometimes you find something interesting, sometimes not. You never know what will come up, but it can be fun.

  4. I love the dream world you share. I always enjoy your post. I have not gotten brave enough to venture out on some of the new blog stuff. I do good get my post up.

  5. Hi Connie... Kudos to your sweet hubby for doing the poppy sale today. What a great guy.

    LOVED the sewing room. How I'd love having a room big enough to actually house those great cupboards.

    Crazy over the French flour canister too. ... well, and the posies. :-)

    Huggies to you!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
