I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments! It means so much to me! I LOVE the linkbacks to your blogs in the new comment form. I spent most of the day yesterday reading all your posts. I know there are millions of sites out there to read, but I want you to know that I’m very thankful you’re here.

I’m still working on my new blogroll. Please let me know if you want to be included!

    Nom! Cupcakes! 🙂 (a lurker, waving hello 🙂

  5. Awww. now hand over a cupcake ! 🙂

  6. Oh so funny that you like the links! I took mine off — felt too showy & self promotey. But I’ll keep them on from now on! P.S. I could do a nose dive into those cupcakes! Always love the photos you find.

  7. Tina says:

    Really! You took it off? I adore the links. I want to know what everyone else is up to. You have to leave another comment with a link! Funny girl.

  8. Tina says:

    hello lurker darling.

  9. ta says:

  10. Lee says:

    Those cupcakes are so pretty!

    I Love your new header.
    So many chances and since I haven’t been here for a while it will take a while to see all.
    OH, how I wish I could do cupcakes – tried for DD birthday and what a mess :shudder:.
    Glad you enjoyed the change for WordPress and don’t worry about the comments – in big part of our world (half, actually ;)) it’s Summer so people are dedicated to vacations, outdoor fun etc and less on computers. Soon they’ll search the warmth of your company.
    Take Care!

  12. Tina says:

    Thank you so much Teresa!

    Looking at the Jane Eyre cover reminds me that it’s my top favorite book of all time. I even went to a bookseller years ago & picked up different old copies of it. Also I have the 1st copy I got of it, where the top hardcover has fallen off & the pages are yellow & brittle. Can’t even let that one go!

    Also, please send me all three of those cupcakes, right now! 🙂

    I happened upon your blog about a year ago and I absolutely love it. I read it several times a week. This past week I’ve been in and out of the hospital 3 times and on bed rest for the rest of the time. Reading through so many of the things on your blog has kept me happy and entertained me in a time where I’m struggling. Thank you so much. I definitely love this blog!

  18. Katie says:

    Oh, well, you’re welcome! I have to say, seeing a comment from you on my blog was a little bit exciting. It’s fun to hear from people whose blogs you normally just read. Have a lovely evening!

  19. Tina says:

    Aw, i’m so glad. When I first started blogging, one of my friends would leave messages under different names so I would have comments. I’ll never forget when I started getting comments from people I didn’t know. I think my first was from Tina Tarnoff in SF. I was so excited.

  20. Tina says:

    oh, thank you! you made my day!

  21. Tina says:

    cute collage!

  22. Tina says:

    Yours is one of the only blogs that actually balances all the lit., design, etc things I love and try to write about myself! I was worried when you almost stopped and I’m super loving your new format… made me consider leaving blogspot…

  39. Hi Tina,

    Just found your blog and I’m so enjoying looking through all your past posts. So beautiful and feminine! I would love love to be considered for your blog roll. Would be a real treat!

  40. Hello!
    Keep up the blogging. I’m currently using wordpress as well. It has a cleaner feel and easier to manage, to be honest. Though it seems that blogspot is more popular in the U.S but not necessarily so in other parts of the world 🙂

    Pls include me in your BLOGROLL ! 🙂


  41. Molly M says:

  42. Tina says:

    OH thank you! I’ve never seen it on iPad!

  43. Our blog is all about jewelry education, specials and tips! We can add you also!

  44. Sarah says:

    I absolutely LOVE the new blog! Congratulations! Yours was the first blog I ever read, even before you got the Blogger Blog of Note! You’ll always be my favorite too 🙂 Thanks for the years of inspiration Tina! xxoo

  45. Camila Faria says:

  46. Tina says:

    oh wow!! that was a long time ago!!! thank you!

  47. Tina says:

    HI Camila, thank you!! xo

  48. Luli says:
