“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.” ~ Bo Derek
My UPS and Postal people have been busy. Even though there has been snow on the ground for most of February, I am still able to treasure hunt online.
This beautiful apron was hand-made by Olivia. It is so feminine; adorned with tiny flowers and lace. It’s almost too pretty to cook in. Perhaps I need an apron to wear over my apron and use this one to serve in.
These sterling bud vases and ironstone bowl were purchased from Rhonda of Blue Creek Home who recently opened the cyber doors of her etsy shop. Look at the detailing on the vases. The bowl compliments my Ironstone collection. Rhonda is currently hosting a give-away in celebration of having 300 followers. Her hand-made pillows are to die for.
The beautiful sterling sugar and creamer came from Annie’s new online shop, Stone Meadow Market. I love the patina on these antique pieces. I can’t help but wonder who owned these, how many tables did they sit upon?
It seems my Irish luck is not limited to March. A while back I entered a contest at Megan’s Minute, which asked: what is your favorite coffee moment? My response was: My first moment of consciousness. I had forgotten about the contest until I received notification that I won a Tassimo Coffee Machine! Who needs Starschmucks?
Last week, Thomas and I were spending a lazy morning in bed, watching the snowfall, sipping coffee and reading. I checked my e-mail and learned I was one of the lucky winners in the Barn House Boys Giveaway! I purchased a box full of goodies from them on opening day and will share those items with you when I unveil my bathroom sometime in 2012 (Yes, I jest. It only feels like forever.)
I have yet to use my winnings but browsing through Joe’s and Jermonne’s shop is half the pleasure.
