Beautiful Blog Series: Songbird

December 21, 2009 By Amanda Padgett

We have another first for our Beautiful Blog Series – an international blog! How exciting! Songbird, a blog run by Marianne, in the Netherlands, is the Beautiful Blog I would like to recognize this week.


Marianne actually contacted me last week, asking me to look over her site to see what I thought. Well, I thought it was gorgeous! And, she has done all the design herself!! I so admire do-it-yourselfers who can really do it. She had done an absolutely lovely job on her blog.

Things I love about Songbird are:

  1. Very pleasing-to-eye color scheme.
  2. Subtle yet beautiful header.
  3. Highly functional and well done navigation bar.
  4. Social media icons that match her blog.
  5. A neat and tidy side bar.
  6. Easy to read text in the posting and sidebar areas.

Marianne writes about decoration and crafts, about vintage inspired thrifting and living life to it’s fullest. It is not only a blog that is lovely to look at, it is definitely a blog worth reading and following.

Congratulations, Marianne, for having a beautiful blog! I admire all you’ve accomplished with your blog design and hope to one day be able to do the same. Below is a button for you to add to your sidebar or in a post if you would like to share it with your readers.
