Pay it Forward Blogfest

Hello Bloggy Friends
This post is my contribution to the "Pay it Forward" blogfest. I'm going to give you the names of three blogs I enjoy following.
I have an enormous admiration for Zara's blog Gypsy Village . It is a blog of exquisite taste and sophistication, featuring fashion, travel, gardening and sometimes food. She leans toward exotic designs from Pakistan, Arabia and India. Pay her a visit.
Zara's other blog is Retro Lounge. This attractive blog features retro items from lifestyles from the 50's to the 80's. Her latest post headlines Piet Hein Eck, a Dutch designer of furniture, lamps, unique wallpaper, and ceramics.
Mellodee Musings is a blog of varied interests and surprise themes. Often the themes are cleverly centered around words of a song, of which Mellodee has a vast storehouse of titles. Pay her a visit and be amazed because you never know what you'll find.
Adios my bloggy friends. Have a Readable Week-end, reading blogs and ice skating (in case your autumn departs and your weather turns frigid.) Ha, perish the thought!

This linky list is now closed.


  1. Yay!! Great blogs to visit - thanks!! Enjoy your weekend! Take care

  2. HAhaha ... I've got the last laugh downunder - summer's on the way!!

  3. Retro Lounge looks absolutely lovely.

  4. Hi Manzanita. I'm here as the co-host from the Pay It Forward blogfest. Thanks so much for signing up.

    And I wasn't following your blog until just now, so the fest is working!

  5. Mellodee musings sounds very interesting. Not sure I spelled that right. Actually, I'm pretty sure I spelled it wrong . . .

    Thanks for the list.

  6. Rock on girl. Have a great weekend.

  7. For some reason, Linky never lets me link up. I am not sure what the problem is.

    Have a GREAT weekend Manzy!

  8. Oh, dear Manzi, such a surprise! Thank you much for mentioning my blogs and your kind words! I feel honoured, really!

  9. Manzi: I cannot seem to add my blog to the list. I tried a few times.

  10. All three are new to me! Thanks for participating in our blogfest!

  12. Dear Manzanita, Today has gotten jumbled for me with things to do and so I don't have time to visit these three blogs. I hope to do so tomorrow. Your commentators have surely enjoyed them.

    Thanks for suggesting them.
