Once upon a time, I had a huge crush that I promptly squashed when the very eligible bachelor shared with me that he thought antiquing was boring. It was a deal breaker. Fortunately, I met someone who shares my intense love of antique stores, flea markets and yard sales, and we’ve lived happily ever after. Until now, because I have a new crush…on Please Sir.
North Carolina-based textile designer and artist Diana Martini (the second person I know with that last name) is a self-proclaimed expert in the “art of flea-marketing.” Based on her blog, I would say she’s the queen.
Sometimes it takes two to make a blog go right. That’s the case with Jo and Kim, the self-proclaimed “design junkies” behind Desire to Inspire.
Kim and Jo met sharing images on Flickr and decided to create a blog where together they could both share inspirational photos of their search for “the perfect room.” Sounds like a design fairytale come true, right? Design lover meets like-minded design lover, they fall in love with the same mid-century modern chairs and the rest is history? Here’s the catch – the two have never met in the four years they’ve been co-blogging. Kim lives in Canada and Jo is Australian. That’s one long-distance interior design affair!

Sherry and John Petersik are full-time bloggers with a knack for all things DIY. Meet one of their babies, Young House Love, a blog dedicated to the adventures of their first home renovation project.
The Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and Pier 39 are just a few of the classic reasons why I love San Francisco. Now, I have a new reason – the delicious design blog SF Girl by Bay.
I confess. I’m in love.
If I could have any job in the world, it would be to read Eat Drink Chic for eight hours a day. I’d even pay to put in overtime. Eat Drink Chic is the brainchild of Amy Moss, Australian graphic designer turned style blogger. Amy ditched the graphic design business and now earns a living styling shop windows for Borders, conceptualizing events and parties (check out this ice cream sundae parlor) and managing her blog. Amy even designs flirty and feminine paper goods and DIY projects readers can download for free. Her designs are great for weddings, birthday parties or a plain old Tuesday.
