Mish Mash Monday!

Please Grab the Button!

Here is my first installment of Mish Mash Monday!! There is a McKlinky at the end of the of the post if you would like to join me! Mish Mash Monday - is where I will post everything that doesn't make a whole post, interesting sites/blogs I find during the week, maybe a "Must See" give away, sometimes a recipe I've tried, or whatever makes me happy! :)

1) Please check out the Etsy Mini's on the left sidebar - they are new! I will change the mini's at the end of every month - there are some amazing shops!

2) There is still time to enter the give away for my hand painted jean blanket. The draw will be on Friday at 10PM! (click on picture to enter)


3) I purchased some Soy Candle Tarts from Flowering Tree Botanicals!
I just LOVE them!! I bought them in 3 scents: Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla & Harvest Mix. Was just at Layla's shop and noticed she has a
huge 1/2 price sale on right now!! If you check it out and happen to make a purchase - please mention me :)

4)Vanilla has always been my all time favorite scent. Bev (Heritage Bath Essentials) had some of her lotions, candles, gift baskets etc. in our Christmas Craft & Gift Shop this year. So every time I was working in the store I could smell the candles and would eye her containers of whipped body butter.

On the 24th I was at the store all day and finally broke down & bought the body butter. After using it in the afternoon I had a new favorite lotion, a new favorite scent and promptly bought a candle Bev had in the same scent. WOW!! I just love this scent - it is definitely my new favorite!! Oh - do you want to know what it is? POMEGRANATE! Bev happens to live about 20 minutes from my house. She does also ship to the US! Please check out her site, and if you email her or happen to make a purchase - please mention me :)

5) Word of the Year:
One of my favorite blogs to visit is With An Angel On My Shoulder. While reading it the other day - I noticed that Ter had a "Word of the Year 2010" post and that got me thinking. What would me word of the year be? There are so many things I need to improve on, do, prioritize etc. So I thought about if for a couple of days and then it hit me!!

My word for 2010 is:

Main Entry: or·ga·nize
Pronunciation: \ˈȯr-gə-ˌnīz\

Function: verb

Inflected Form(s): or·ga·nized; or·ga·niz·ing

Date: 15th century
transitive verb

1 : to cause to develop an organic structure
2 : to form into a coherent unity or functioning whole : integrate
3 a : to set up an administrative structure for b : to persuade to associate in an organization; especially : unionize

4 : to arrange by systematic planning and united effort

This is what I will do for 2010!! Organize my life (I hope)! Do you have a word of the year? I would love to hear about it!

If you are joining me in Mish Mash Monday - please add your blog link - I would love to come and visit!


  1. Word of the year, that's really a good idea!
    Mine would have to be breathe, cause I'll have to keep taking deep breaths during the year for sure!

  2. I love your word choice for the year!!! I could choose that word and still not follow through. Maybe my word should be procrastinate. I can fulfill that destiny!

  3. I'm totally blushing! :) Thanks for saying that about my blog!

    your word is a good one! I certainly could use that word too... well, it does go hand in hand with thrive! ;)

  4. Hi there Audrey

    Sorry to be a pain....
    i am trying to do Mish Mash Mondays and am wondering if you want me to put the MMM button in as a picture (using it's url) or do you have html coding somewhere that i am not looking?

    Love the 'Word of the Year'.

  5. That sure was a mish mash :) My word of the year...hmmm...I have to think about that one. I love Pomegranate. I discovered Cranberry Pomegranate juice and fell in love. Lilac is my favorite scent...and pumpkin spice...but not together :)

  6. Organize has been my word of the year for decades Each new one that comes I tell myself "this is the year you are going to get it all together" Who knows maybe this will be the one

  7. Great word of the year! I think I share the same word this year! Started some needed organization in my home today! Good luck!

  8. I really like your word of the year...great word you picked..I think mine would have to be Accomplish...Accomplish everything on my daily list of To Do's...

  9. Corporate gifts are an integral part of doing business. Corporate Gift Baskets are politically correct and economically smart. With one gift basket, many people are touched. They are also becoming more and more popular as a year end gift by the companies. Visit here:

  10. I love your Mish Mash Mondays post! It reminds me that I haven't done a Found & Shared post in ages! If I ever remember on a Monday I'll participate in yours!

    Love your word of the year, think I need some of it too!


Thank-you so much for commenting! I love to hear from you!
