Looking




“It is not what you look at that matters, it is what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau

A nice quote to share with our Sky Watch Friday friends because there are lots of folks who barely see the sky and then there are those who like to celebrate all the different moods of the sky and share the view from their perspective.

Shirley from Reflections very kindly shared this blogging award with me recently. It is always such an honor the receive these gifts from blogging friends and fun deciding which bloggers to share the award with or to share with you all as good places to check out for all kinds of reasons.

These are some of the blogs that I like to visit regularly and think you will find them interesting too.

Beyond the Horizon



“We have always held to the hope,
the belief,
the conviction that
there is a better life, a better world,
beyond the horizon.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Welcome to Sky Watch Friday, where bloggers from all over share their view over the horizon, hope it’s a good one for us all. Photo taken on the northern beaches of NSW Australia.





One of the things bloggers enjoy is an ever expanding collection of friends from all over.

Shirley of Reflections recently gifted me with this sweet card and the Proximity Award.



“The award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these bloggers"

To say thank you to bloggers who inspire & excite me, I would have to recommend some that I visit every week

Have also been regularly visiting the Inspired Room, this year she is hosting a theme each month on her goals for creating a sanctuary in her home. Lots of other bloggers chime in with their approach to the monthly themes. Best of all it is not about buying the latest kit or range from a big name store, it is just regular folks adding their ideas on how to make the best out of what we have.
