ZEALOUS ~ A-Z blogging challenge (letter Z) ~ vintage & emotions

A-Z blog challenge

Letter Z =Zealous

Some of my favorite things:

  • The power of the written word
  • Quotes
  • Emotions
  • Vintage
  • Art

All wrapped up in to one little visual package for this Spring Time challenge.

vintage - zealous

“My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay, A Few Figs from Thistles

So that is it, the end of the A-Z blogging challenge 2014 and what a hell of a ride that was!

I would like to say a thank you to the organizers and also to all the wonderful bloggers out there on the blogosphere!

Let me know how it was for you, please, be it a participant or a reader following my journey through this challenge, did you like it, would it make you want to do it next year, or did it interfere with your usual enjoyment of my blog!  hehe

    I so enjoyed all your a-z posts and I love this one – being zealous about everything is how to enjoy life. It’s been quite a journey. I need a vacation.

    Whooppee, cartwheels and flying corsets. We made it all the way to Z and every day with you was pure delight, dear Justine. Even if you did try to slather a little dog poop on the A to Z cart path *wink *

      thank you Lainey, how are you feeling now it is all over? haha,,relieved? I wonder if there is something like a celebration to end this all or does it all just fizzle out? I might have missed some posts knowing me..ps guess what I am doing..scribble scribble..hehe..my painting is due to be posted later today, feeling a bit nervous! x

        Looking forward to seeing it! No pressure….I’m relieved the challenge is over, but really excited because I’ve got new plans for the blog. How about you?! xx


        • April 30, 2014 at 11:24 AM

          Ohhh what are your plans? I am glad it is over I havn’t really met ‘that’ many people through it to be honest as many were on other blog platforms and I think that lessens the attraction as it makes following etc more difficult, however it has taught me that pre-scheduling is good 🙂 xx

            lol, pre-scheduling is very good! The people I found on WordPress tend to be “keepers” lol….I did struggle with keeping up with people on Blogger, I tend to just follow them on Goggle+

            Plans?! he he he….will pop those in a letter! I’m basically thinking of a little series of themed creative exercises…people can join in or just watch. I’m still in the brainstorming part, but I can see a bit of structure coming together 😉 xx
