So I thought it was time to mention some of the blogs I read and call your attention to them, especially if they don't yet seem to have a lot of followers. Get the word out, as it were.
Today, I thought I'd tell you about The Flying Chef. The author is a woman named Heather, who lives in Pennsylvania, and I don't know her but I do like her. It's kind of a given that I'd like someone who's a fan of antiquing, tea parties, classic rock, Jane Austen, Paris, and Beetlejuice. I mean, really. Plus, the banner has a witch!
Her blog started off as a sort of advertising medium for her impending webstore for kitchen gadgets and hostess gifts, but real life has gotten in the way and put that endeavor on hold for her. I honestly don't know at this point whether she still intends to open the store, but it doesn't matter. She keeps her blog current and there's a lot of good stuff on there.
Plus, she's got an in-real-life Craftique booth at the Seabase Shopping Center on Pittsburgh Street in Greenberg, PA.
Back to the blog, though. She's got some great decorating ideas there, like her idea to decorate her bay window with real pine and use scrapbook paper as placemats. There's also some incredibly random but cute stuff, great hosting tips, amazing-sounding recipes, lots of good information about various ways to help others, housekeeping tips, and bits of her own childhood.
The funniest thing is that she also posted a photo of her puppies, just like I did mine!
And she cares about health and keeping things natural, the same way Reef Botanicals does.
One last plug, check out one of the cute things she shows you how to make:
Isn't that great? And she featured Reef Botanicals too! Definitely check her out!
