just a quick note to say: Read books, it feeds your soul... it may do zilch for your syntax, but hey, I'm sick)... I joined the Slow Readers Book Club, begun by the lovely Diana, (like the camera!) of ourcitylights.org, and I urge you all to pick up a copy of Jeannette Walls' Half-Broke Horses and git readin, pony!
and, those other two words: Positive Feedback! It is what it sounds like, a real feel gooder!
I have been off of posting because I have been sick, but will be back and badder than ever, soon. In the meantime, check out my shop, and work hard and be nice to your friends and family and your pets, especially the pets because they haven't got a choice now, do they?

In my possibly too-vivid imagination, I have cast this dress in the starring wardrobe role on vacation: it is the only garment you will need for that little island getaway or puddle-jumping trip (or all summer, for that matter). It is too big for me, but involves one of my fave colors, that celery-colored green.
Now, vintage labels: Vintage labels are something. This one spells out T H E R M O J A C in all-cap block letters, in primary colors. The letters look kind of like tumbling children's blocks. Seeing the label actually sold me on the dress. (Does anyone else do that?)

Little Red Birds Don't Worry, from Lindsay's PaintMeAPicture etsy shop.
We have a winner for theLostEarring's blog giveaway -- a $15 Gift Certificate to bibbysrocket --- and it's Lindsay of PaintMeAPicture on etsy. Lindsay makes personalized paintings and decor for children and nurseries -- her designs are whimsical, with a knockout sense of color and composition. Honestly, I can see these paintings working well in many spaces, the rest of the home, in a cozy shop, many a space can benefit from these enlivening pictorial notes.
Again, thanks so much to all who entered at Kelly's blogspot blog, thelostearring, and to Kelly for hosting this fun giveaway party!
Now, follow me to another blog feature from etsy seller JewelsOfSaraswati's blog! And you'll love her shop -- semi-precious jewelry that combines earthy and sparkling stones in many shapes and sizes to inventive effect.
