I hate saying goodbye

I hate it. I dislike saying goodbye.  When I meet a new spirit I never want them to leave.  And so it is with a few of my blog friends.  I am sad that I have had to cut you loose from my favorites list, but then it really wasn't my doing.  They have either left the blog world or have retreated for more then 6 months and not sure if they will return.  I understand.  I do and I will miss you but it is time that I clean out my space for others.  You have gone away because others are coming.  So I have added new blogs. Some are long time bloggers newly discovered by me and some are brand new posters to the blog world.  I welcome you all and wish all those who have left well.

Say hello to a few of my newest blog friends:

Garter Mademoiselle - how cannot you not love a name like that?  A new blogger, her posts are delightful as she shares her love of silky drawers, garter, and all things romancing ribbons creative.  A Jersey gal now living in Germany, she shares her vintage finds found in her European travels. 

Dear Helen Hartman is like Dear Abbey on junkin crack.  As she writes, "This is the South! Too much food, too much jewelry or too much hairspray, there is no such thing. In this part of the country, too much of anything is just about enough...But I do believe I'd have stopped at giving the dummy a gun! Oh wait, that has never been a prohibition against dummies with firearms 'round here."  We even have a term for an abundance of blessing here in the South.
It’s called a gracious plenty."

One Cheap Mama...she had me at cheap mama.  A mother of two and a mom of one with caviar taste and a sardine budget so she does the best she can to feed, clothe and decorate chic and cheap. From Louisiana Y'all.  In these crazy economical times, it's great to have a leader "on the cheap" to help us navigate our financial opportunities. 

All have one thing in common that immediately attracted me to them. It was their joy of life.  So I hope you enjoy visiting these blogs and as always, wishing you blessings to those you love.  Sea Witch

Hey Dari!
I have been meaning to clean out my lists as well for some of the same reasons you stated.
I will check out the recommendations you posted, they sound like my cup of tea!
Hope all is well with you and your vintage booth?
Have a wonderful weekend and take care!

Oh there must be something in the air today for this! I haven't been abut nearly as much in blogland this year as I would like, family etc needing more attention, but today I thought I'd log on and see what is what and hopefully get back into posting more again.

Thanks for the links to the new ones you have found, I will enjoy reading them.

I love the names of these blogs! They are fabulous. I have had to do the same thing with the "clean out."

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. It is such a pleasure to meet you.

I totally know the feeling....
Some bloggers just disappear. It depresses me.

Thank you so much for adding me to your list - what an honor! I just returned from a family vacation at the beach and I already miss the sound of the waves. Have a blessed week!
