Things I Overheard at the Party

Giving Equal Time

Since I featured things I found at the most recent Gotta Have It shop link up party, I thought I better do the same for the bloggers who posted to the Gotta Blog It link up party. 

Here's some of the things I overheard at the blog party. 

Traci, of All Things Luci Rae, found this cabinet at Goodwill. Nice find!

This is not what the cabinet looked like when she found it. This is what it looked like after Traci got her hands on it.  Applause, applause.

Traci also just opened up a new shop called The Dented Lampshade. Cute, huh?  See the sweet rosette lampshade? Traci did a post on making that shade too awhile back. Take a look.

Bethany, from Still In St. Louis, rocked this totally romantic and lovely side swept up-do in her most recent 'What I Wore' post.

The love bows. Nice touch.

Very pretty Bethany.

Need wrapping ideas? Check out Laura's post on wrapping up the holidays on her blog, Cubits Organic Living.

How cute is the chickadee? 

Jess, at Stuck In A Zoo, just did a post on some quotes that are worth remembering.

If you think your head is spinning, try to be Courtney Jo at The Everything Soap Blog for a day. Soap is not the only thing on her to do list everyday. Yup. That's right........

........Courtney Jo and her husband Jaime are raising twin toddlin' boys. Sounds like double trouble to me.

I just love checking the parties out. There is so much to find and so many people to meet.

Thanks to all who linked up this time around.

Good News and Some More Blogs

Tami, from High Street Cottage stopped by the Muse today to let me know that I was one of the winners of her giveaway and that I won the prettiest toile Flora Doora, made by Jane. Yippee!!

I featured one of Jane's Flora Doora bags before on the Muse and am so happy to know that one will soon adorn our home.  Plus, I love birds and toile!  Jane lines each bag with waterproof material, so that you can actually keep your flowers watered and fresh. How nice to be able to hang fresh flowers on your door or wall. Such a great idea.

I think I may have found Amy's blog, Maison Decor through Tami at High Street Cottage.  You just never know where someone's blog will lead you. Amy just unveiled her tree and it's so beautiful. So is her living room.

Doesn't Amy's picture get you in the spirit?

Have a wonderful Monday.  I'm going to put some Christmas music on and work on my Christmas crafting.

Happy Hannukah, a day early, to those who will be celebrating this week. Enjoy your holidays!
