Monday Muse - Blogs

Soliloquy is the blog of Nancy Bond. I love the attention to minute detail that so many of her photographs present. I love the quotations that capture the essence of the nature photos she shares. Her poetry and writing are infused with the same attention to detail as her photos and through it all, one sense Nancy's connection to nature. I'm glad we found each other's blogs some months back through an ever-extending community of kindred-bloggers.

Anita's Take Joy! is a relatively recent addition to my bloglist. Anita tells stories on her blog the way we would tell a friend a story over a cup of coffee. Her writing is conversational and natural. Her subjects range from recurring dreams, to crafting, to what's growing in the garden. Those are things I love to talk about in person; I love to read about them as well.

Apparently, I'm about to introduce you to Cherry Menlove's Tales from Pixie Wood blog, just as she begins a blogging-hiatus there. She does however, maintain another website, including an active community forum. Her blog is dedicated to the art of lovely homemaking. Her blog is subtitled, "Days in England and Tales from the Homemaking Front." I can make no claim to having a home with as many lovely decorative touches as the one Cherry presents. With two little boys, several house pets, and a dusty dirt road just outside the front windows, pretty bows and delicate fabrics are kept to a minimum. A girl can dream however, and visiting any of Cherry's web-endeavors is a breath of fresh, sweetly beribboned, air.

Thank you for visiting me and your encouraging comments.
I love your name

Aisling said...

Ernestine, You're welcome! I enjoyed my visit to your blog very much.

Aisling isn't my real name, just my blogging name. All of my family have nicknames for blogging purposes. When I started this, I wasn't sure how much personal information to disclose and so selected nicknames. All of the names are poetry terms. Aisling is an Irish dream or vision poem. I like it too - it's fun to get to pick one's own name! *grin*
