Things I Found After The Party

The Things People Leave Behind

One of the best things about hosting the Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It Shop and Blog link up party browsing through the links.  It's a little like Christmas morning. Each link brings you to a shop or blog and you get to take a moment, look around and marvel at the talent you can find on the Internet.

Look at this romantic, vintage robe from OttolinesOddities.

Such a pretty shawl color with lovely detail. Love those sleeves too!

The beautiful art of JodiCoughlin.  This painting is entitled 'I Believe'.

Look at this 'almost-too-pretty shaving mug that Tami just blogged about on High Street Cottage.

Tami was also nice enough to give Mercantile Muse a shout out in her post. Backatcha Tami!

How absolutely sweet is this customizable birthday invitation by Melissa at BellaExpressions.

And yes Bethany, kids do say the darnedest things. We had this discussion Friday night at our 'Little Christmas' party.  I'll say it once, I'll say it twice, I'll even say it three times......bullshin, bullshin, bullshin.

So, you all probably know by know that I have a thing for chevrons which you will find in some of my designs.  Look at this chevron bead work by fellow Ganite Stater Maddy at jewelrybyjane29

Silver and Blue Peyote Stitch Bracelet

I have absolutely no idea how you do that bead work. Obviously Maddy does though.

The party is still going strong. People have been adding their links all weekend- yay! The more the merrier!

Have you looked around yet? What did you find?

I've been working on a new illustration. I've got Valentine's Day on my mind already (crazy! wasn't it just Christmas?). This is where the sentiment of love took me today (will be up in the shop a little later).

'She Wore Her Love Like A Crown'

Happy Monday. Make it a great one.

  8. Pam,
    I read the "bullshin" post too. I think I laughed out loud. Nice choices from your visits today!


  9. uh oh kathy, did you spell bullshin correctly the first time? LOL!~!

    Seriously Bethan- that post, along with the picture,just cracks me up.

    Tami, so glad you have sun. It actually wasn't semi-sunny here today. There was a pretty sunset, so that was super nice at the end of the day. Though it was cold enough to have the woodstove going all day. Not complaining, so far a very mild winter. Thanks for the kind words.

    Karena, thanks so much for swinging by from Meg'. So jealous of her trip to NYC. We're always hoping to get there soon! always.
