Your blog is pretty in pink and always a treat to read.

~ Heather at Pretty Petals (directed to her new blog) ~ I originally met Heather in the land of eBay a few years ago and now I frequent her blog for the gorgeous photos, interesting content and inspiration. I consider Heather to be a big part of the blogging community. Her first swap ~ Junque in my Trunk ~ was an amazing success! Heather is sweet and friendly and I have noticed her name on many blog favorite lists.
She has the most friends on etsy and flickr of any gal I have seen!
