I've got a crush on you.....

Thought it might be fun to shine a spotlight on some bloggers who've been inspiring me lately...think I might do this semi-regularly, as I'm always stumbling on new blogs that impress the daylights outta me.  Bloggers who consistently offer their readers something dandy to walk away with every.single.time.

This week, let me introduce you to:


Isn't she a cutie?  Marianne hails from the Netherlands, and has been uber helpful to me during my blog-identity crisis....she knows a crazy lot about blogging, and is so generous about sharing that info with others.  But seriously, she's got talents WAY beyond blogging tips...

Just check out some of her projects:

 

 

 




 

 

And I hate to tell you this, but she sews too:




Marianne has tons of talent, no?  Well if I haven't convinced you yet to get your cyber bum over there, let me tempt you with some 'o dis....

Marianne  schools us on:

Isn't she amazing?  Marianne combines all my favorite elements for a superb blog, one always worth a visit:  
~totally tasty pictures 
~witty and personable writing 
~informative and easty-to-follow tutorials 
~fun giveaways and swaps 
~thrifting/flea market/antique fun 
~awesome crafts 
~travel 
~out of this world decor and style by the mile!  

I never leave her blog without some kind of inpsiration.  She's also kind, generous, and humble.
Basically, she is one of my very favoritists in the blogging community. :) 

There's so, so, so much more on her site.  You don't know what you've been missing!
Click on over, get your swoon on and be inspired by Marianne, girls.  She's a hidden treasure in the blogosphere.

Cindy,

Time permitting, I too love to look/read at newly found blogs. It's like going to a more intimate staged open house! Thank you for sharing. I'll be sure to pop over.

I've been following Songbird for a little while. Her blog is gorgeous and she's super talented. I want to try making her plaster flowers. They are, well, amazing.

Well, as a fellow Dutch girl, I have to say YAY Marianne ♥ I love her blog, she is a great blog person, kind and sweet. AND not an unimportant factor, she is DUTCH lol.

Hugs from another Dutch girl, Marian (yes we even have almost the same first name haha)
