Hello friends! A quick note to let you know that if your blog was added to the last blogroll update in March then you may have noticed it’s no longer showing up on my site. This is not because I have removed it. My datacenter wiped out any updates made to decor8 post March 3 which included posts, comments, blogroll updates, press updates, and anything else that I updated between March 3 and June 19. I’m still working on recovering posts for March and April, I have some but not all, and the blogroll is my next task which I’ll be working on over the next few days. If you blog is shown in this image, don’t worry… you will be back up on the blogroll very soon.
I stumbled across Pretty Good today and I’ve bookmarked it for future drooling. I love how this clever lady pulled together her blog — each post is a photo in which she doodles her thoughts on for that particular moment. The site is pretty much text free and all the photos appear to be ones she has taken herself.
I love this very visual approach to blogging and that it’s her own work — quite unique and definitely worth your time today if you have a moment to look at Pretty Good… you’ll like the happy feelings it leaves you with I’m sure.

Share Some Candy (not to be confused with Daily Candy) was founded by Reuben and Yael Miller and is a site dedicated to design finds and art. Along with Rueben and Yael you’ll find 10 “curators” who help them pull together content for the site. Share Some Candy is like taking We Heart It and a blog template and smashing both concepts together. It looks like a blog but works more like We Heart It, since there is no real text outside of the title of each post.
Well the title and their found location which is cited briefly using the word VIA. Which brings me to my one and only little problem about the site, in my opinion I think instead of “via” they should consider citing the actual source by name, like “apartment therapy” or “decor8″ or “martha stewart” because we bloggers and business owners on the web work really hard to come up with unique ideas and content and to just have our work linked in this way, shown on a site as a “via”, bothers me. Plus it’s better when actual names are used on sites for ranking purposes, all technical stuff that I won’t bore you with but things that blog authors care about. But aside from that. everything else about Share Some Candy, from navigation to layout and design, is top notch and lovely or else I wouldn’t bother sharing it here today. I found out about them via Creativitae. I hope you’ll go check it out — loads of beautiful things to find there!
These images all make me very, very happy for many different reasons. Some reasons don’t have feelings attached that are easily penned. They are very emotional, perhaps as you look at these you’ll feel little bursts and tingles just like I do. They’re all from random places, links are below, but found living together beautifully on the decor8 blog of the week: Dress, Design & Decor.

Something about yellows and blues and blush pink…
