A LOVELY Drive By in Orlando!

No, I didn’t go to Orlando to do a drive by. But one of my blog readers happens to live there. And … she just started a new blog! Woot! Love hearing about new bloggers. When I went over to visit her at the new blog, I was tickled pink to find her posting a Drive By of a beautiful neighborhood near her home. We are KINDRED SPIRITS!

I knew you’d all enjoy her drive by (especially since I’ve been a drive by slacker lately),  so I’m linking over. And while you are there, give Tara a big hearty welcome to blogworld!

I’m adding our Friday Linky for you to link up your inspiration. I have no idea what my new linky will be after the winter home linky. I’m at a loss.

Any ideas of what YOU’D like to see here on Fridays?

    I always enjoy events that show a person’s creativity. I can’t wait to see what you end up with!

  2. Robin All Things Heart and Home

    How about a linky for: What Inspired You This Week? So many different personalities out there and I love seeing a peek into their hearts and what inspires each of them. And for me that changes almost daily!
    There’s a more lovely name for sure !

    Thanks so much for hosting! I think Spring decorating etc would be great for inspiration.
    Missed you last night at the Home get-together, couldn’t find anyone in this huge place. Hope to meet you today.

    You’ve inspired me to do my own linkups once a week on Sundays…this Sunday! Join us.

    I think it would be fun to do a linkup once where we recommended links to posts on other people’s blogs that we really like.

    I love drive-by house looking. :) I actually live in Orlando so now I’m curious to know where it is. I feel like I may have driven by it before.

    Can you imagine the excitement when my dear friend fro PA called me this morning before I had even been on the computer to tell me that our favorite blogger had a post featuring me?

    Let’s just say we were screaming and jumping and our kids all thought we had completely LOST it. I’m pretty sure we have.

    Hope you are having fun at Blissdom…so wish I was there!

      Hi Tara, I had a great time at Blissdom, thank you. You are more than welcome for the feature. I am happy you started your own blog and am always excited to connect people to new bloggers! The drive by was definitely WORTHY of a feature :-)

    How about affordable luxuries? Wonderful, precious things that brighten our day that everyone can do to make their home a place that nourishes their spirit? (That was my theme this week, so I guess it is on my mind!)

  11. Rhonda

    I love doing drive-bys in communities! Kind of like “people watching” in the mall! …on a much larger scale of course! ~Rhonda :)

  12. Julie From Inmates

    Just clicked over from MckMama’s place. Enjoyed nosing around. We’re doing some home renovations so I might just be able to link up sometime!!!

  13. Jackie Ellis

    When I think of my dream home – I picture a big American home.. just like THAT ONE…. lol. WOW simply gorgeous !! Jackie

    How to transform your rooms from winter to spring looks?

    gardening tips?

    So I have to say that it’s quite amusing that, of all people, you happened to link to this person’s blog.. Because, beyond the fact that I’m also from Orlando, a lot of my friends are actually some of the college students that she and her husband had “a wonderful opportunity to move to Orlando and work with!” What a small world….
