    My husband just became a citizen (finally!) without loosing his British citizenship, so it/s
    his first time voting....thrilling and what an election..
    oh my our poor country...I really wish everyone would unite this year to straighten things
    out...get on with what needs to be done and keep businesses in the USA and stop sending
    jobs overseas...welll bla bla bla...lets look at pretty clothes instead...

  11. Great post once again, just love the humor you bring to blog land. Hugs Mary

  12. Ah, I do understand, there are so very many talented people that haven't found their audience yet...but they will!
    And oh, I really, really needed the laugh that the bouncing elephant gave me today. Merci!
    With all of my Best from Provence,

  19. Jackie that is such a clever post - well done - just love it! Fx

  20. Fabulous post, Jackie! You are absolutely right, too many awesome blogs to have to pin down a favorite for the exact reasons you expressed here! Creative as usual, my lovely friend! Alex and I have been spending this week together in bed, with food poisoning - romantic no? Haha. We managed to get out to vote yesterday though! Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve for your next post! xxoo

    Merci my Dear,

  23. Geez mate, I got a bad case of RSI just scrolling down your Blog Roll! Isn't it a grand old Bloggie world with so much fab stuff to lose ourselves in.

  24. Dear Jackie,
    these are so wonderful photographs - I love it when people take care even for small things - e.g. not only choose those lovely books but also put such a tender unusual ribbon around it - fascinating! And of course one wants to buy a picture of that perpetual jumping elephant - he is a fine symbol for Lebenslust against all odds. :-) Britta

  25. Hi Jackie,
    Such a clever and generous post.
    As usual your images are sublime.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend,
    Liz x

  26. I'm with you on this one Jackie! How could anyone narrow it down to just one (or even 10 for that matter)? I always love the images you share, but the one with the jumping elephant cracked me up!!!!!

    I hope you are having the best weekend ever!
    sending hugs...

  27. I agree that it would be very difficult to narrow it down to just a couple blog. Smart stance to take:-). Beautiful images as always. XX

  28. as always..
    your snaps blow me away.
    the elephant on the trampoline is my fave.

    i look forward to your selection.

  29. I just discovered your lovely blog today and I am a happy new follower. What beautiful photos and wonderful inspiration! Angie @ Swede Dreams

  30. It's really hard to pick from all of these great blogs these days. Glad to find another source of inspiration, hopping unto that link. :) Got my eye on your next posts.
