Hello Goodbye/ We Have A Winner!

In the past year several blogs I have enjoyed over the years have shut down . For different reasons the blogger could not continue. I just want to let them know they and their blogs are missed. They know who they are.

I have sought out new blogs and I want to say welcome to blog land to the new bloggers. To the longtime bloggers,  I am enjoying both your great old and new posts!

    Grandmommy, I agree with you that unfortunately many bloggers have shut down their blogs, it is such a pity, because I miss them too.
    Wishing you a lovely Sunday and week.
    Hugs, Ilona

  6. Woohoo... that's what I call great news! Thanks for the congratulations... - and for the chance! ;O) - I really share your feelings about so many dear blogs being abondened... for many different reasons I think... And it's not only the blogs that fade away but also people who take the time to comment - I fear some find it much more convenient to just click on "like it" at FB instead of writing...

    Hugs
    Birgit

    1. Congratulations! I agree Birgit. When I say your comments mean a lot to me I really mean it. Regardless to what is going on in life, when I see my blog friends and read their comments, I literally have a big smile on my face!

  7. Congrats, Birgit!

    It's too bad that some bloggers just don't take a break instead of shutting down altogether.

    1. Hey Muff!
      I agree with you. I understand there could be legitimate reasons to leave. I know most times it is a very hard decision for them, but sometimes I think they make a permanent decision in a temporary situation.

  8. Congratulations Birgit!
    It's ironic that we, the long time bloggers lose and miss more online friends than the new bloggers.
    Thanks for the chance to win your lovely giveaway.
    Hugs, Drora

    1. Hi Drora!
      You are very welcome! Yes, very often we bond with one another in blogs. We know our blog friends are just a click away with a cheerful word.

  9. Congrats to Birgit!
    I agree with you, in that it is really sad to see some bloggers go. I get such a sense of friendship from fellow bloggers that collect dolls as I don't have anyone physically in my life that I can share this hobby with (except my little daughters of course!) I am hopefully that some of them are still reading our blogs and will decide to come back! ;)

    1. Farrah,
      I have shared with many people that I am a miniaturist. Some can appreciate it, some are supportive. Most give me a strange look. They don't understand a grandmother playing with dolls and dollhouses.
      Fellow bloggers understand. I hope they come back too!

    Thank you, Grandmommy, for taking the time to comment on my new blog. And I have to say that your post about your Chicago show last year was what got me all excited about going to this year's show (and then writing my own post).

  14. Hi Penelope!
    You are very welcome! Sorry getting back to you so late! I am glad you had such a great time at the show. I am thinking about going again next year. Or at least one somewhere.
    I am honored to have inspired you! :-)
