Friday Favorites – Week 32


Hi everyone! Time for another edition of Friday Favorites!  I have a quick question for you this week.  I was wondering if you guys would like for me to host this as thumbnail linky. It seems like everyone is using these now, although I can name at least a few that still use the old-school version like I’ve been using.

I’ve used the basic version, largely because the links load a lot faster.  I don’t know about you, but even with a highspeed connection, it sometimes take a while for all the thumbnails to load (or maybe I’m just impatient).  And as someone who links up at a lot of blogs myself, I do like that with the basic linky, there are one or two less steps in the linking process.  But I’ve decided that I would poll you guys and see which you prefer.  So if you’ll just let me know in the comments, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!

This week’s Friday Favorites is sponsored by Painted Lady Designs. See the lovely item below?  Check out my giveaway post and you could win it!

Linky time! Please link up any post that you consider a favorite, and please use your post urls instead of your blog so that we can easily find the post you want to share! Also, I’d appreciate it if you would place a link to my blog in your post and/or place my button in your sidebar. Thanks!

    Hi Jerri! Thanks so much for hosting. I like the idea of the picture links, but I have pretty fast internet, so if the ordinary ones are easier for the majority of folks, I honestly don't mind either way. Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for asking. I like the photo linky format best… but either way is fine with me.

    Have a terrific weekend!

    The caramel apple cake sounds yummy, that's making me hungry! 🙂

    Like you, I find it easier to link up to simple lists – but the thumbnail ones are much more fun to browse and I'm more likely to click through to more posts that catch my attention.

  11. Thanks for featuring my twine pears! I think I may have to try that yummy looking caramel apple cake!!
