A Blog Crush

crush linky

I am joining in with Diane at In My Own Style’s linky party about a blog crush we have.   Although, mine is not a secret; I want everyone to meet her!

Carolyn from Aiken House & Gardens!  I only started following Carolyn at the end of last year.  She has quickly become a favorite to visit with as I visibly relax, feel calm, and look forward to reading Carolyn’s posts when I see a new one pop up on my dashboard.

Carolyn lives in a most beautiful place called Prince Edward Island, Canada.   Her home and gardens are just lovely!

Recently, Carolyn has been doing quite a bit of ice skating on a pond on her property.

Which leads into her setting up for tea afterwards.  She has some beautiful pieces of china and lays a really pretty table.

She has a guest cottage on her property that she decorates for Christmas.  I love it so much I want to live in it!

If you want to enjoy some beautiful pictures and feel like you are sitting down to tea with a friend, I would recommend a visit with Carolyn at Aiken House & Gardens!   She may even become your blog crush!

P.S. I set up the Linky Followers on my blog {down a bit on the side bar} just in case ~ so if you wouldn’t mind following me on that as well.  I’m signing up with the blogs I’m visiting as I go along, too.  Thank you!

Carolyn is definately one of the very best crushes I have, too- she is a true "artiste" in every way.

I told her once that her lovely photos of her world bring such tranquility for my day.......

GOOD CHOICE!

OMGoodness Kathy, I can see why you would have a blog crush on her lovely blog....beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to Carolyn's blog and Happy Valentine's Day, Gail

Debra @ Common Ground said...

She is one of my faves too. It's like flipping thru Victoria Magazine each new post!!

Richella said...

She actually lives on PEI?? I've always wanted to visit there--ever since I was a 12-year-old girl and first fell in love with the Anne of Green Gables books. I've been to New Brunswick, but never to any of the other maritime provinces. What beauty there is on this continent and just off our shores!

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Kathy! May you be surrounded by people you love! :)

Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day.

Carolyn said...

Hi Kathy,

Hey, Kathy! Thanks for sharing Carolyn with us! I'm going to hop over and visit her. Now following you on LF!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Kathy, I will go check out Carolyn's blog! The pictures you posted look beautiful...

I read your comment this morning as I was about to leave out the door. I'm the same way...I think I have all the time in the world and before I know it Chase is home from school and it's time to start thinking about dinner...it's just crazy. I am really working on organizing my time better.

I hope you had a good Valentine's Day today! Kevin brought me home 6 yummy cupcakes and I tried some of every one of them. Needless to say I don't feel so good right now...my belly hurts. =0

Thanks Kathy! I had planned on putting it on my front door at first. The flowers would probably need to be a little lower. I made it taller after I decided to hang it in the niche. I'm going to try to find some boxes soon.

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

I found her blog a few years ago and I completely agree....her blog is so pretty! I just love her gardens and everything looks like it's out of Victoria Magazine. I haven't been to PEI since Tyler was a baby in 2001 when we went for a family vacation. Hunter has been a few times...when we go home to Nova Scotia, one of her best friend's family take her to PEI for a week with them! PEI is one of the prettiest places on earth! Angie xo

Hi Kathy-

Thanks so much for linking up to the Blog Crush party. XO I wanted to do the party so I could be introduced to some new blogs and so far I have found some ones that I have never been too :) I can see why you are crushing on Carolyn's blog.I have always wanted to visit PEI since watching all the Anne of Green Gables stories. Carolyn is your Kindred Spirit as Anne would say. :)

My best- Diane

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...
