Fresh, Clean, and Pure Friday Blog Hop #1

Welcome to the FIRST  
“Fresh, Clean and Pure Friday”

I started this friendly blog hop because in many ways I find myself and those around me trying to incorporate new things and behaviors in our lives for the purpose of cleaning them up.  So many of us are concerned about what is in our food or any other product that comes into contact with ourselves and our families.  As I began to think more consciously about what is fresh, clean and pure to enhance my life, I began to wonder what other bloggers are doing to freshen up their lives.  So I created this outlet for those of us interested in this way of living to share their fresh thoughts and ideas with others . . . plus find great new blogs!

Fresh, Clean and Pure Friday is for any blogger that has a post related to ANYTHING FRESH!  (all solicitation posts to sell stuff, to promote giveaways, or to just display coupons, etc. will be deleted).
So you may be asking, “What exactly do you mean by “FRESH?”  Just fresh food?  Well, that certainly could be one thing that qualifies as something fresh to post about, but here is a brief list to guide your decisions on what “Fresh” topic to post!
  • fresh scent/s
  • freshly prepared food
  • non-packaged or preserved food (however canning or freezing ‘fresh’ food can be included)
  • fresh new look/outfit/design/decor
  • a fresh new quilt made, or any new hand-made treasure
  • a fresh new beauty/exercise routine
  • fresh cut flowers
  • fresh new outlook, beginning, start, idea, experience, goal
  • anything recently made or produced
  • newly harvested 
  • fresh, clean and pure:  water, air, make-up, rain, products you use/recommend
  • anything unused and free from dirt, soil, impurities
. . . that’s just to give you an idea of what ‘fresh’ things or behaviors that can be included in your post!

Every THURSDAY NIGHT I will post the Linky list.

  • Add your link to the list as well as the image you wish to share.
  • Grab the button and paste it on your post.  This button will change weekly.
  • Follow this blog, “la bella vita”, the host of “Fresh, Clean, and Pure Friday”, who is gladly helping you with your blog in return. 
  • Visit and follow ANYONE that you wish.
  • Leave a comment that you found them on “Fresh, Clean, and Pure Friday”.
  • So here’s the blog hop button to copy and paste inside the post that you are sharing (posts or blogs without this button will be deleted due to lack of return-blog friendliness or blog etiquette):

    I truly believe that by sharing all of our ideas and thoughts, we can increasingly beautify our lives, both inside and out!   So link up your posts here on “Fresh, Clean, and Pure Friday” and meet other like-minded bloggers who are freshening up their lives too!

    Your comments make me smile and I promise to get right back to you both here and on your blog! I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen, hummingbirds in my gardens, and student papers to grade! BUT I DO VISIT YOUR BLOG and comment back! Hey, that's what good friends are for! xo
