I know, some people think of baking as a craft, but I see it as an excuse to have yummy sweets in the house.
Downton Abbey Cooks - a blog about the show, links to more info about the show, and recipes from the time period you can make to eat while watching, discussing, reading, or thinking about the show. I haven't made anything from it yet, but I have enjoyed quite a few of the posts and photos. Any excuse to read about the world of Downton, right?
Bakingdom - OMG the recipes, the food, the pictures of the food. Straight food porn. DO not read this while you are hungry. My cooking Pintrest board has a lot of posts from this blog that I am too afraid to make. Because if I make it, I will eat it. All of it. I totally need to get some friends I can bake for. Any takers?
A Spoonful of Sugar Designs - Ok, this one is a little crafty, but I included it because it covers a lot of different crafts (like me only with better photos and tutorials). The posts on this blog run the gambit from baking, to paper crafts, to sewing, and more. Right now they have a ton of Xmas themed projects that makes me wish I had enough local friends for a get together, that I had more time, and that I had more talent. I love the diversity of the posts at this one!
Messy Nessy Chic - This is, hands down, my absolute favorite non-craft blog. The woman who writes this finds the most interesting things to write about from Urban Decay (actual decay, not the makeup brand), to historic monuments, to Paris in the 60's and more. Every post is filled with interesting, weird, and offbeat stories and photos. Her 13 Things I Found on the Internet Today is my favorite weekly post ever. Always such interesting things to read about and go do more research on. I swear this blog was written for me.
Little Vintage Trailer - A blog about vintage trailers and listings for ones that are for sale. I read it solely for the eye candy and so I can pin pretty pictures of things I can't have yet. Vintage trailer in aqua, red, and white = retirement dream.
Lot's of LOLs
Andrea Zuill's Blog - while it is not updated a lot, Andrea posts her hand drawn cartoons that usually feature her dog. And, as a dog lover who knows there is a complex and devious mind behind the lovely brown eyes of her doggie, I love the cartoons. Definitely worth a follow just for the little nugget of laughter that falls into your lap unexpectedly when she posts.
Craft centered blogs on the next visiting day post!
