Speaking of artisans, gardens aren't the only place to find magic. A gifted man here in Illinois designs and creates custom furniture - the likes I have never seen. Barry uses the original tools of the trade - carried through the centuries. In your online travels, check out his website: Barry Newstat Furniture (IL)

So now you know - this is how my mind wraps itself around the garden bloggers I follow and read, kind of by categories . (I need a bit of structure, otherwise my mind might implode!). There are many, many more talented, inspiring garden bloggers out there... I recently found: This Grandmother's Garden. It's a whole new world - I promise I will be exploring more!
A few weeks ago, I added the "Blog Hop" gadget to my blog page (thanks to the Obsessive Neurotic Gardener). As of this moment it's up to 123 blogs listed. It's opened up another whole new door of blog links, and I've only hit the tip of the 'iceberg' on this resource. I checked out the following blog link, and it got me started on another thought process - antique finishes in the garden: Bella's Rose Cottage - Gazebo tour. I am not super girly, with lace and bows, but I really appreciate clever design - Bella's Gazebo is so well done.
I love that the Blogosphere makes this BIG old world just a bit smaller! (I have so much to learn... and SO much more garden work to be done... D@mn dandelions!)
...Happy gardening.... --Shyrlene
