celebrating 'blog day' . . . yes really, there is a blog day!!

Greetings all,
NuffNang are celebrating Blog Day 2011 by asking their subscribers to recommend 6 great blogs from around the world.  Easy??  Oh so hard to narrow it down.  So i close my eyes & hold my breath, spin around . . . & i'd love to share a mixed selection of fabulousness . . .
the talented TexWis Girl from The Run*A*Round Ranch has a beautiful photography blog i frequent, capturing delightful 'postcard' views of nature & her farm animals (with names & stories, like Elvis & Priscilla - her resident ducks in the pond) around her patch of earth in Texas USA. 
 Loving the life, cooking, style, mothering, fashion, travel . . . TinaJo from Sweden at her TinaJo@Home blog does it all, so effortlessly, glamorously, fantastically.  I'm new to her too, so when i visit i go back a few blog posts each time to soak up more of her world.
 Oh oh oh, LONG time fan of Heidi over at The Polka Dot Petticoat, blogging from Alaska USA.  Here you'll discover updates on the local family of moose who moved into her garden, an amazing converted house filled to the brim with a lifetime collection of vintage & antique finds, creating a cosy home, which photographs like the pages in a coffee table book.
 It's a French vintage style children's shop-spin-off 'le blog'.  Do i even need to say more??  Dorothee from My Little Day has the most incredible eye for detail, colour, styled photo shoots & old school party fun, she needs to be shared with the world.  Can't read French, use an on line translator, 'le blog' not to be missed.
 Yay for Australian blogger Jacinta from MODELmumma in country Victoria . . . who just announced (Beyonce style) her 3rd baby bump!!  Congratulations!!  This girl can rock op shop finds, mix colour, bohemian prints & $1 finds like nobody else.  She's also a hat person, i know, she's got it all going on + she makes the alterations on vintage fashion herself!!
 Talk about handmade talent, honest parenting, heart breakingly down to earth, wholesome & all star American - she's a mother of many, married to a handsome fireman . . . i have followed Samantha & her journey on The Handmade Dress blog for years.  Anyone who can put an image of themselves in this situation - the exploding nappy - is totally keeping it real.  She also makes beautiful patterns for children's clothes.
Like my selection?? 
Familiar with their blogs already?? 
Pay them a visit, they are fantastic ladies with a lot to offer, you'll only be enriched by the experience with eye candy & feel good vibes from the clever people who make up this world, one blog at a time.  Love Posie
