Here is a perfect thing I bought.
Here is the perfect thing I bought IN the corner of my perfect home.
Here is the perfect thing on this perfect chair (currently featured on all the design blogs), in the corner of MY perfect home.
Here it is again with a lovely shadow cast over it… and some sea glass scattered on the floor boards.
I love nature and organic things and I am very sustainable too.

I hear what she's saying, she isn't bagging-out bloggers with pretty blogs and nor am I, I love some visual candy. What I am saying is that the blogs I adore reading the most are written by those who blog in their 'real voice'.
There is a strange phenomenon in the blogging world in that we drop our usually suspicious attitude to Internet content and believe everything we read!
I mean, how do you know that the 30 something mum of 2 crafter you check in with very week/day isn't actually a balding 50 something sleazebag? If you were on any other online forum would you take things with a bigger grain of salt? I know I would.
Sometimes I get a bit downcast by the blogger with the gorgeous white, spotless home, beautiful children and delicious but wholesome home baking.... And then I remind myself that the only reason her life appears on her blog as so perfect, so bloody LOVELY is that SHE IS TELLING ME SO not because it is real. I'm sure behind the lens there is a great big pile of shoved-out-of-camera-shot-junk like the rest of us.
And then, once my eye candy need is fulfilled.. 'click' .. on to some reality, the blogger who is secretly struggling with feeling overwhelmed by her family, who has moved to a new town and is finding new connections difficult, who is a single parent trying to make things work, or is having an 'everything I touch turns to shit' day.
You are the bloggers that rock my world! Your honesty and bravery at being yourself gives me goosebumps. So reality check guys. I'm so over LOVELY for the sake of it because (to quote Pip again) "You are you. Yes. You are ace just the way you are." and if, like me, you do a little dance every time you see that someone enjoys connecting with you enough to 'follow' you, then rock on my friend, rock on!
