Five blogs that make me happy! :)

I’ve been reading a bunch of new blogs lately and there are five that I just have to share with you — even though each blogger writes about totally different things, they all have one thing in common: they all make me so happy!

First off, meet Amy, a happy resident of Brooklyn, NY. She’s got a super fun writing style and she writes about all kinds of eclectic things — many Brooklyn related — on her blog, M-Dashing. She’s got a series going called “the One-Bouquet-A-Week Challenge“, where she challenges herself to create a new bouquet a week. Just look at these lovelies:

I think I’m going to have to treat myself to a new bouquet a week, too!

Next, let’s head across the world to Australia and visit Kellie from 74 lime lane!  Each week she does a series called “lime light” where she shares some wonderful finds.  I just love this one:

The blue typewriter!  The camper!  The toaster!  The sneakers!  So fun.   And! I love reading blogs from around the world — did you know that it’s summer in Australia?

Now let’s stay “virtually” in Australia and visit Piper from One Sydney Road.  She has a terrific sense of humor that really and truly makes me laugh out loud.  Check out this image from this post that had me giggling all afternoon:

Piper said she would love to have them as party favors, wouldn’t that just be hilarious?   I can just image them on Southwest or Jet Blue airlines, too.  Hee hee.

Now let’s spin the globe again and head over to South Germany to visit Ines of frauheberg! She really writes from the heart about so many things, and she is a wonderful photographer, too. Just love this post. And, here’s one of her fabulous finds — the work of Stephanie Levy! Doesn’t this just make you think of spring?

Now let’s head over to San Francisco and visit Meredith from Penelope Loves Lists. If you like making lists (I do, I do!), then her blog is sure to make you happy.  She wrote a post recently about Happy Tape — Japanese masking tape — and that really got my smile-o-meter going!

My favorite from Meredith’s list of things she loves about Happy Tape?

3) that even tape can be pretty. Course, this sets the bar high for other things. Like, toilet paper, you’re going to need to raise your game, dude.

Ha ha ha!

Have you read any blogs lately that made you happy? I’d love to hear!
