Blogging (a secret little world of happiness)!

Has anyone out there thought of how important blogging is to so many of us? It is like a secret little world of happiness. No one talks about it, the media or newspapers or really in the magazines. But here is this world where we all come together with our common love of creating, sewing, crafting, painting, re-finishing, gardening ,which ever, and we all Share, and Encourage each other, and here we meet these amazing ladies we are so alike, it is like having hundreds of pin pals or best friends all over the country and meeting up to share, inspire, and encourage where otherwise our paths would never cross. But here in Blog land we get to meet each other and live vicariously through each others projects, adventures, trips, mistakes, blunders, re-dos, and Be Oh so positive to one another. Where else can you go to get such positive feedback, lovely comments, great ideas, and thoughtful suggestions... I JUST LOVE it, and as i sit and share with my husband about what i have seen or read or want to copy i do refer to some of you out there as my friends as if you were right here in our town, In person sometimes ladies dont want to share or arn't always as encouraging as they could be -BUT not in bloggersville. So i wanted to share my gratitude to all of those who share ideas, and leave such nice comments and give great advice ..
Just wanted to say A BIG THANK YOU to all of you Blogging ladies- you totally make me smile, make me laugh and give me one more thing to look forward to each day...


  1. That is very well said, and you are absolutely right! I am still pretty new to all this blogging stuff but it has struck me how nice, friendly and supportive everyone is. I live way down the bottom on the world (lol) in New Zealand and I gather that most bloggers I have come across are in the USA and it is nice to feel I have something in common with women across the world, so far away.

  2. What a sweet post! I started my blog because I was a lonely housewife and I have made so many friends and gotten so inspired catching up with everyone is one of my favorite things to do during the day now. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  3. Amen Sista! I know what you mean. I have found so many encouraging bloggers that have become my friends (especially you:)that I have never even met in person. I would truly miss blogging if I stopped.


  4. Hi Karryann,
    I stopped by because we have followed each other by way of my blog The Greentiques Solution. I would like now to personally invite you to join me at my new blog called Tools Are For Women Too! Right now I have a giveaway going on, a link party planned for Monday, a Link Party Directory where bloggers can list their parties, and just a lot of great stuff. Please stop by if you can. Rory

  5. Hi Karryann, Thanks for visiting my blog! I believe you are east of Sacramento, am I right? Turlock is just south of Modesto. So I'm probably about 3 hours south from where you are. I would love to come visit your little shop Gracefully Vintage. Your pictures are adorable!

  6. Thanks for linking up at our little party~ you are so right about the bloggy world.
    Years ago I was at a small market taking photos. The lady asked me why... l told her I had a blog. Long story short... she says "y'all own a block on the internet?"
    ummm~ yea sure.

  7. Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog. That was sweet. My friend Kerry and I are going Yard Saleing tomorrow! It should be fun! I love finding other peoples "junk" and making it over. So fun! Your blog is very inspiring to me. Have a great weekend.

  8. This is such a great post! I totally agree with you. My family think I am addicted to blogging but I think they are too as they are the first ones to suggest ideas and pose for photos!

    Best wishes for a happy weekend,

  9. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog oh talented one!!! It is very nice to meet you and your blog is lovely! I'm adding it to my Blog Candy page now.

Blessings to you. ~Lili

  16. This is so true! I started blogging after my son suggested it to help me in the recovery process of a surgery I had. I was feeling quite overwhelmed and a bit sad...through blogging I've met so many wonderful women...I love it! Thank you! Have a great week!
