A Little Help from My Friends

I noticed that I was getting more traffic here all of a sudden. Then I realized that two of my dear blogging friends have been spreading the word about my site. 

Vee at A Haven for Vee referred to my story of patience, featuring Otis, the bear. She was amused about how I refer to “thought bubbles” that hover invisibly above critters when I photograph them. I amuse myself by trying to imagine what they are thinking. In actuality, they are probably wondering, “Why is the crazy lady pointing a black contraption at me and giggling?” Sometimes I wonder the same thing! 

Vee always keeps me entertained at her blog, sharing snippets of her life in Maine and delighting everyone with her dry wit. Thank you, Miz Vee, for the thoughtful plug! 

At the same time, Jenny at I'm Having a Thought Here also mentioned me in a post. She won some of my handcrafted beaded bookmarks in a bloggy giveaway a while back. Jenny has been inspired to begin crafting beautiful book swags made of ribbon and charms. 

Hubby and I were very fortunate to meet Jenny in person last year and entertain her at Grey Havens. She has that special gift of lighting up a room, and a visit to her blog will quickly convince you too. Thank you, Miz Jenny, for mentioning me, and I am thrilled to see your creative spirits soar!


  1. I saw you this morning at Vee's corner! I'll go follow the link to Jenny's now! It's nice to be noticed and your blog is one of my favorites! ♥

  2. YOU my friend, are the one who lights a room. You do it with your charm, your wit, your hospitality, your loving nature, your generosity, and most of all your tender heart.

    I love you!

  3. Hope that all these visitors took their shoes off at the door... gheesh. With the photography and fun that goes on over here, I didn't want anyone to miss it!

  4. Don't you love it when your bloggy friends unexpectedly spreads the love. You know kind of like you're doing right now. *wink*
    One of these days I'll be lighting up that room. LOL!
    Have a great day my friend.

  5. You're posts are worth spreading!

  6. I agree with Jeanette...they are worth spreading and how sweet of them to share the joy that you bring them on your blog!!


  7. I visit Miss Jenny regularly but have not had the pleasure of visiting Vee...Will do that soon!
    Aren't blogging friends just wonderful?!!

  8. Blog friends are the best. It's amazing how we touch each others lives each and every day through posts.
    I'll have to check out both of these blogs. I'm not familiar with them but if they are friends of yours they must be delightful :)

  9. Well---congrats, Donna. Your blog is worth sharing... I love reading all about your adventures... Can't wait to see what 2012 brings you (and us)....



Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
