Now that one of my sisters is a blogger, I have been discussing headlines with her and how important they are to a blog post. I had to laugh when I went over to her blog yesterday and she had written a post headlined; The Number one Reason Married People are Celibate.

My favourite blog on fashion and style written by image consultant Imogen Lamport (it’s like my blog but all about clothes – I learn something new everytime I’m there), is featuring a naked woman along with some great weekend reading as well.

Design Ties wrote a great post all about decks with maintenance tips and beautiful images!
Garden Designs wrote a fabulous post on Modern Classics for the Masses. Check out these chairs for your deck instead of the ones we are used to!

Brett Walther from Style at Home Magazine posted a fabulous new light fixture from IKEA, it’s a must see!
Have a great weekend!

    I have another blog that is more geared for home staging on a real estate network and I have to say I had fun with a title for a post I did on removing floral wallpaper from my powder room. I called it, "I've Been De-Flowered". Got a lot of hits!

    Thanks for the reading tips. I hopped over to your sisters blog and dies with laughter. I missed your Thursday post! Tobi Fairley turned me on to mary's book about a month ago. Im about half way through. Some of the things she discusses in the book are so obvious and yet I never thought to do it! Im so excited that you are taking the course. I have never been to New York. I want to take Mary's course and hope to do it next year. Keep us posted on how it goes! Congrats!

    Hey Maria,
    You got the puppy pix from me, but I got it from somewhere I can't remember…I see CREATEGIRL says Coastal Living! I need to mark better!
    Of course you know you are one of my fave read of all!

  • Rachel says:

    i will certainly book mark those headline links, as that's something I've always struggled with. but you're so right, it makes a HUGE difference in attracting attention.
