I found some really nice Blogs this week. Most I found through Rachael's 100th Post Party and then the some off of other Bloggers Favorites Lists and a couple off comments that others left on my blog (and by the way, THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS!)

I love the blog Turkey Cookies. I especially love the story of how Jessica got the name Turkey Cookies. Jessica has recipes, gardening and life stuff on her blog. Check it out it's a fun blog!

I also love the Mary's blog Isabella's Closet .Mary has some beautiful vintage aprons and cross stitch pieces in her Etsy Shop, she has aprons, pillowcases and other nice things on Ebay and, finally, I'm sure everyone's seen some of Mary's Blog Banners as they have read other people's blogs. The thing that first attracted me to Mary is her beautiful space where she Blogs from. It is so pretty, shabby chicish. If I blogged in Mary's room I would feel like I was in a little corner of heaven! Check out Mary's blog and her stores, I think you'll find them beautiful!

If you want to read a very heart felt story, that is sure to make you cry, go to Tiff's Blog, Folded Gingham. I don't want to give anything away, but Tiff's story hit me really hard and has a very personal meaning for me. I cried all day over it and then when my daughter came home she cried and when Earl came home he cried. You have to read the story and then see the picture at the bottom. I just want to give Tiff a big hug and to tell her that life goes on but the memory never goes away.

I read so many more Blogs that I absolutely love, but, until next week.........

Here is Peony in full bloom.
Isn't she beautiful?
I had to have the kids hold the stem though because it was so windy yesterday.
