(As I am having serious camera issues of late (grr), I have decided to forgo a traditional post today, and rather, provide you with a list of some of my favorite blogs. Each of these women strive to make their homes a haven for both family and friends. Enjoy.)
Favorite “Farmhouse Finds” (It’s no secret to those closest to me that I long to live out in the country where I can have a rambling farmhouse, multiple outbuildings, and even a few chickens!)
Na-Da Farm Life Na-Da Farm Life with Anne Marie is absolutely one of my all-time favorite bloggers. I think you will agree that after visiting her blog you are filled with a sense of peace and serenity. Anne Marie and I have actually “visited” via email, and I hope to make her acquaintance in person one of these days! She makes me want to stick a for sale sign in my yard TODAY and move out to the country. She is gracious living!
Life at Buttercup Farm Shawn is another “friend” that I have made through the blogging community that also strives to make her home a haven. Wife, mother, artist, teacher, Shawn’s eye for beauty is evident in her photography and lifestyle. If you love “farmhouse living” you must check out her posts on their barn makeover and new chicken coop. They give me “barn envy”!
Raised in Cotton Carol’s blog is pure eye candy for the farmhouse lover or vintage flea-market-er in all of us! She and her husband are currently renovating and decorating an 1865 farmhouse that they purchased in 2009. Carol is also the co-owner of Raised in Cotton, “a shop featuring refreshed vintage-style goods in a century farmhouse in Raymore, Missouri.”
Inspiring Christian Bloggers (These ladies have beautiful blogs that inspire one to take at least a few minutes of our day to be with Him, and to lovingly nurture ourselves, our loved ones, and our homes.)
A Little LovelinessIf you love to sew, bake, or craft this is definitely a wonderful blog to visit. Melissa is an incredibly talented homemaker who also is an author and public speaker. I can easily lose myself in her archives as I read about parties and luncheons that she hosts for both her children and Christian women’s groups.
Pearls and Grace If you are hurting and looking for the calm after the storm; if you have ever felt abandoned or lost by those you thought loved you, this is an incredibly inspiring blog that shows there is always hope…new beginnings…and strength found in God. In addition to her own inspiring story, Sibi reaches out to others through her Pearls and Grace ministry and is constantly creating a haven in her home…even while in transition. You are His pearl!
The Homespun Heart (Okay, I know that most of you are visiting me here FROM The Homespun Heart, but for those that have accidentally happened upon me, or are linking up from another blog, I would like to introduce you to Monica.) I discovered Monica while blog hopping one afternoon and instantly fell in love with her sweet disposition, which shines through her blog. Her love of Christ, her family, and her home is evident as she is the creator of this blog party, Making Your Home a Haven, this week.
While this list is by no means inclusive, I hope that you are able to take a minute for yourself and visit one or more of these ladies. I promise you that you will be inspired to create beauty around you…I know I am.
As always, thank you for taking the time to drop by Vintage Home Modern Living. I hope that you leave me a comment. I always respond back here, and if time allows, pay you a visit as well.
Blessings to you,
