Hello, everyone! Welcome to A Favorite Thing #31. I thought we had a pretty nifty turnout last week, considering it was a holiday weekend. Let’s look at some highlights:
Angie of Oopsie Maizie shared a wonderful project that she made with her kids: birds made of salt dough with nests made from shredded paper lunch bags, molded to a bowl and then mod podged with the addition of some pieces of yarn. Isn’t that adorable?
Mary of A Breath of Fresh Air shared her love of texture with some gorgeous photos.
And, though I don’t have a photo to go with this post, Susy of The Feathered Nest wrote beautifully of her friend Rachel in a post entitled, Thursdays with Rachel. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, I urge you to. You will be happy you did.
I’m favoriting (I made up that word) my modest collection of miniature pottery. I just started collecting some of these pieces last year and I really love them. As most of you know, I am nuts for pottery and china and I have it all over the house. I’m also nuts about everything mini, so these little pieces didn’t have a chance once I saw them. Some of them were purchased by me and others were sent by dear blog friends.
Now it’s your turn!
You can link up anytime from this evening through Sunday. Make sure you enter the URL of your post. If you’re unsure how to do that, just click on your post title after you’ve published it and copy the information in your browser address window. Come back here, paste the URL into your link entry and there you go! If you have any problems, drop me an email and I’ll help you out. Please link back to this blog on your post. That way, those that read your post and are interested in reading more can do so.
One of my concerns about link parties is that the very reason for them has somewhat gone by the wayside. They’ve become so big and there are so many of them that many bloggers don’t take the time to visit any of the other participants. Link parties are a way to meet new bloggers and share with each other and the only way to do that is to visit each other. So, please, take some time to visit everyone over the next few days. No rush. Stop by, introduce yourself, and leave a comment. It’s the neighborly thing to do. It’s also nice if you leave a comment here, as well.
Enjoy, my friends!
