Ready To Make Some New Friends?

Little Binky

Picking a blogger to feature at Friendship Friday is like eating potato chips: sometimes, it’s hard to stop at just one! So, let’s celebrate a few friends from around the globe and enjoy our last weekend of freedom before so many of us officially go “back to school” next week!

First up is a treat for the feline lovers among us: have you met Little Binky? Recently, I was out playing hide and seek with my granny while she was in the garden cutting bushes and it appears that she found me and snapped this paw-some shot as proof! Granny is just the best. Among other things, she’s a cat sitter at the Dutch Cat Protection Service, a homeopathy student and the blogger behind Angels Whisper. Stop by and share our adventures!

Pressed Flowers

Next, if you enjoy exploring the Internet looking for cool things to do, then Cool Esse is the blog to visit! Cool Esse is a 30-something year old mom who resides in the US with her sweetheart and two kids. She’s a nature lover who enjoys making food, art and random things. If you’ve ever wondered how to press flowers or incorporate painted flowers into your artwork, check out this post!

My Sister's Place

Then there’s Ann at Zoolatry. This summer, she’s been walking all around Baltimore and sharing her fabulous photos with us! This week she took my breath away with photos of My Sister’s Garden – an amazing mural containing 100 flowers, each painted by 100 homeless women. Be sure to visit Ann today as these photos deserve a closer look!

Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is a joy. Be sure to visit Little Binky, Cool Esse and Ann this week, explore their blogs, leave her some comment love, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!

    We love your Friendship Friday selections, Ramona! We are longtime pals with Little Binky and Ann. We do not know Cool Esse yet, but we will go and visit now. 🙂

    Thank you so much for your lovely email. We are so touched that you wrote to us, and that we were able to help you when Tsunami was needed at the Bridge. That’s what friends are for, right? We’re there for each other. Hugs to you, Roy, and Magellan as you remember.

      Thanks so much – the first year is always the hardest.
      His photos pop up my screen every day.
      I think part of the pain is also. because of Covid, we have postponed adding another kitten to our home
      (which in a pre-pandemic world, we would probably be ready to consider)…
      but to everything, there is a season, and we trust that when the time is right,
      everything will fall into place.

  13. Those are some great bloggers there. Thanks for sharing them. Thanks for hosting this great party.
