1) Please check out all the Etsy Mini's on the sidebars. They are all new shops that would love some Love :) It's so hard not to make purchases from all these shops while searching for new ones to display on the sidebars - there are so many amazing items in each shop.
2) The "Blog of the Week" is The Empty Nest. I love this blog :) She has wonderful posts, recipes and give aways. I have actually won a give away from her SHOP - a gift certificate, and received a wonderful bag that I use every time I go shopping.
3) I made two wonderful purchases in the last while. Tyler Handmade just had a give away on my other blog. When Tyler contacted me about having the give away, I noticed that she had mug cozies in her shop!! Do you know how hard it is to find a cozy for a mug? I immediately asked if she could make one for my in red - she agreed! Isn't it great?
My other purchase also came from a shop that had a give away on my other blog :) I fell in love with this pendant as soon as I saw it and told myself that if it was still in Dancing Fairy Designs shop - I would buy it as soon as the give away was over. Lucky me - it was still there!! She also sent the ribbon and paperclip. Thanks so much!!
4) I've joined this great swap. Every month you get a new person to swap with and someone gets you! I love swapping and receiving cool items in the mail :) This is an on going swap - you can sign up any time.
5) SPRING IS COMING!! This is what our next week is supposed to look like. The temps are in Celsius. Just for reference 0C = +32F. Maybe I can hang up the winter jacket this week :)
