As I mentioned in my last post, I like to read blogs. Thought I’d highlight some of my favourites in case you were looking for a new read:

819 Ohio: Whether Marilyn is blogging about her baking, her kid, or renovations, it’s always entertaining. She sooo should write a book. My all time favourite post: Why I’m Afraid of Pears. Suspense, humour, terror…that post has it all.

Adventures in Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone: Mrs. Limestone has such a great sense of style. Every room in her house is drool-worthy. She does a wonderful job of salvaging materials and giving new life to the traditional bones of her house. Click through her Before & Afters to see the great transformation.

Style Me Pretty: I came across Abby and her blog when I was planning my own wedding. Abby showcases the most creative wedding touches and is always an inspiration. The real weddings and photography featured are stunning. Even now, married hausfrau that I am, I still pop over there for the eye-candy.

Hooked on Houses: Hooked is right. Julia has filed this blog with all sorts of interesting tidbits. Well-written, varied, knowledgeable…I never know what she’ll post about next but I know it’s worth reading! And how does she get all those peeks into famous people’s houses??

Housemartin: Another beautiful luscious blog. Written by a floral designer, her eye for all things beautiful is obvious. You can see some of her lovely arrangements, her great design finds, and watch progress on her retail store construction too. Flowers and renos, can’t beat that.

DIY Diva: This girl rocks. And saws, and builds, and hacks, and wields a cordless drill like nobody’s business. She is fearless. Need some proof? Read about her awesome fence installation.

These are just some of the wonderful blogs I’ve encountered. Do you have any you suggest I add to my list??
