Friday Follow 22: The Fab Four

Happy almost weekend! Hope your week has been going well! This week has been full of end of the year events for the girls' school. Lindsay had a Cinco de Mayo party, there is a talent show to get ready for, and today I'm off to see a play about Pirates and Princesses in Lindsay's class. Then tomorrow it's up to Prescott to visit my family for Mother's Day and to celebrate my Grandmother's Birthday; she will be 88. Looking forward to this visit as my family from California, is also going to be there, and it's been about 2 years since I've seen them last!

I'm doing something a little different today. A couple days ago, as I am watching the girls play outside, I looked down at a page in a magazine, and it was featuring 4 different types of blogs, gardening, cooking/baking, decorating/style, and crafting. That is what I have been trying to attempt to bring the most inspiration to you, and I knew I was missing something. With my past Friday Follows, they have been mostly about decorating, with a few DIYs and Baking thrown in, but I wanted to showcase more of what I think you would love.

I am always reminded how the little things can be just as, or even more important than the bigger qualities. In a blog, the most important quality that grabs me at first are the photographs, then the writing.  There are times, when a simple thing, such as a tag line, pulls me in or a blog title. I simply love her tagline and that she dedicates part of her blog to cooking with children.

Gaby Burger's blog is one of the first blogs, I started reading. I think it's her photography that drew me in. She posts about not just out fits, but DIYs and Cooking too.

Growing up, I always admired my Great-Grandmother, and her two sisters, they had a real passion for embroidery! If I find some of their pieces this weekend at my grandmother's, I will share them with you. Karen Barbe, brought those memories back to me! I can see her passion for creating these artisanal piece works. She also has a good tip for creating photo collages on Instagram!
