~ Blog Of The Week {Design Ties} ~

One of the first bloggers to befriend me when I started putting more effort into my blog earlier this year was Victoria over at Design Ties ~ and Kelly was close behind! My Canadian friend is very supportive and I believe we have a lot in common. I tend to think that when I feel this way about people I've never met, meeting them in person would be a gabfest as if we knew each other all along.






Over at the Design Ties blog you get that same feeling ~ like your sitting down with Kelly and Victoria and having a chat over coffee in Victoria's newly redone kitchen. Between the two, they come up with fantastic topics and the pictures to go along with them. I love knowing that Kelly loves purple and that Victoria is building a retaining wall in her front garden.

They also have some majorly nice giveaways! This tassel was one such giveaway, and I wound up purchasing a tassel for myself.


Good fun and good friends!

Thank you so much, Kathy!! We're so happy you enjoy reading our blog :-)

We're having lots of fun writing posts for our blog and reading other blogs and "meeting" new people... like you!! :-) I'm always so impressed by how willing bloggers are to support each other and help each other out :-) The blogosphere is a very cool place!!

We haven't been doing as much blogging as usual over the summer, but we'll be back at it big-time in September!!

Thank you again for your kind words and support :-)

Oh I am a reader of Design Ties. Great gals.

Chris said...

Oh, I love being introduced to new blogs! I'm off to visit right now! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

My pleasure, Kelly! I think we all have so much going on in the summer months that it is harder to actually sit down and post, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you and Victoria have in the works. Another reason to look forward to Fall!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love how they alternate, Laura. Each post is different, too, which keeps things interesting.

Great, Chris! I'm sure you'll find something you like over there!
