randomness. in no particular order.

 This is what I do 3-5 times a day.  Not counting morning coffee.  I am cold from about mid-September to mid-May.  Which wouldn't be a problem if I lived alone.  But I live with three hot bloods who sweat over anything above 68 degrees.  Three to one.  I lose.  And freeze.  So bulk donations of coffee, tea, sweaters and slippers in bulk are appreciated. :)
 Christmas came early for me.  Say hello to Ethel number two.  All of my favorite possessions are named after I love Lucy characters.  Because I am special like that. 
 This is my favorite thing about Ethel dos.  She makes pretty stitches and LETTERS!!!
 This is why I love Virginia.  It's the most beautiful state.
 This doesn't hurt...
 ...this either.
This is what I have been making...
And these too.
 And this is something that my friend Michelle makes...it's a cute little bookmark that she adds a photo and a sentiment of your choice to.  She is super sweet...probably the best mother you will ever know...she has four boys by birth and three foster children that she and her husband are hoping to adopt.  Her birth children are seriously the best boys you will ever meet...I would love for my boys to grow up with traits like theirs.  Their three foster children are all special needs who require lots of extra care...and I can't imagine a better place for them to be in order to ensure their ability to thrive.

All that to say Michelle is wonderful.  And I have made it my mission to overwhelm her with love this week.  She is new to Etsy so I know she would LOVE some sales. :)
You can check out her shop HERE.  She has several cute things besides the bookmarks...And to give you a little incentive to help me overwhelm her I will give you $5 shop credit (to my shop)for each purchase you make from her shop. :) Just email me a copy of your receipt. :)   

Hope your day is happy and that your weekend is lovely.
Go find someone to overwhelm with love this week! :)
 
Pin It!
