As I was cruising through blogland the other day, I stumbled upon a post in which the author apologized for including several pictures that week. Then went on the assure the readers that it would not be turning into one of those fluff and picture blogs. (Huh???)
I must say, I took it a little personally.
Now, I realize that I will not be the recipient of a Thinking Blogger Award any time soon...and I'm OK with that. I think there is a place and purpose for both types and one is not more or less important than the other.
I admire those who are able to articulate their thoughts and put them in writing, adding a dash of wit and humor. All the while chronicaling their day, pondering the social ills, and debating parenting styles.
Sadly, I don't possess that talent. But that wasn't my intent when I started my blog. I wanted a place to share pictures of my garden, spark interest in lovely old fabrics, and perhaps, inspire creativity (my own and that of others) with a DIY project. Looking at beautiful photos or making something with my own two hands is mood altering, it makes me feel good. (And much less expensive than a therapist, I would imagine.) I LOVE seeing all the beautiful home and garden pictures, lovely paper collages, and sewing projects on other blogs, and I can only hope that when others visit my page they feel a little better, too. :)
So, my fluff and pictures blog will continue as is, unapologeticly. Here's some pictues, just so a newcomer won't be confused. LOL
