Drum Roll Please & Freeform Friday

Spreading The Love
Thanks to all of you who commented on Tuesday's post. You words were thoughtful and full of what we're all feeling after the Marathon terror attack. 
It's really been quite a week. Very emotional all around from the attacks, to the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas, to the unfolding events in Boston overnight which are continuing as I type. There was an encounter with the suspects and one is dead, an MIT officer dead, another young MBTA officer is in surgery in the hospital in serious condition after a shootout with the suspects.  The second suspect still on the run, more than likely armed and there is a warning that he may be wearing an explosive suicide vest. Boston, the entire city, is in lockdown.
What is going on in this world?
It's all a lot to take in.
I'm glad I can step back, take a breath and do one small thing to make someone's day better and spread some love. I just put all the names in a hat and pulled out Paige.  I'm going to tell you right now, Paige has been an etsy blogging friend of mine for quite awhile and she could use a pick me up today. She's in the Chicago area and her neighborhood was flooded this week and water was seeping into her basement, so rather appropriate that her name came out of the hat. Congratulations Paige.  You are the winner of the Grow Love print. (Kristen, no badgering Paige about her win).


I'll be picking the winner on my facebook page later so I'll get to spread a little more love.
No plans this weekend, other than work on the shower reconstruction and work at the desk.  I'm still looking forward to it being the weekend though.
Freeform Friday
I don't know about you, but I really needed a laugh this week to lighten up an otherwise very dark moment in time.  These two really did it for me. God love 'em, they cracked me right up with their many takes and their perfectly wonderful Maine accents. You have to watch through to the end. Classic. Click here if you're reading via email.
I hope you have a good day in your corner of the world.
Ciao for now,


  1. Congratulations to Paige!!! I love that couple...I watched it over and over one night and was cracking up so much I was crying. Her look is priceless :) Have a great weekend Pam and thanks for stopping the hate and spreading love!

  2. Aw, if I have to lose, I'm glad it's to Paige LOL!!! This has been a rough week all around and I hope things are on their way back to better soon.

    1. Sure has been rough all around. Then the entire shutdown of the city yesterday and the capture of suspect two. Just pure craziness and stressful. Breaks my heart. So it was nice to pick Paige out of the hat..........gotta email her!

  3. that was funny...I love how the lady was rolling her eyes, but then screwed up herself.

    1. oh man, if that didn't make me bust a gut. what really cracks me up is that she is lipping it everytime he says it, then they finally give the line to her and she does the same thing. too too funny


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
