Happy Labor Day, fellow Americans!
In the past I’ve posted a list of DIY projects for a long weekend – and if that’s what you’re up for, here’s some inspiration from last year! But I thought this year, I’d help you spend the day doing what I’d actually prefer to do this year (instead of heading into the lab): look at other peoples’ pretty projects. For real. If I could do nothing but just work my way down my bookmarks menu today, I would.
So, I decided to share the roundup of the shelter bloggers I read regularly – and try very hard not to feel horribly self-conscious about my poor blog versus their shiny fancy ones! There’s so much beautiful and clever work going on out there, but these are the blogs that I found compelling enough to read again and again... over the years... and remember their name... and city or state (is that creepy?). You may have heard of most of them – most are no great secret! – and some don’t even post that often anymore. But their homes and their style have kept me around for years, so you might as well get lost in their archives!
Here we go – in ABC order, because 1) fairness and 2) organization!

There’s no way to make a comprehensive list of great shelter bloggers, but that’s at least most of the essentials! I won’t even start trying to play favorites with recommendations for what I like or where to begin – these are all quality ladies (and a few involved husbands) that I enjoy reading regularly. Why not read them all? It’s a holiday!
