Friday's Favorites: Brown

Brown is such a versatile color and a great choice for fall. Plus, it's the color of chocolate, and you really can't go wrong with chocolate. Check out these accessories that will go with your outfits, your house or your pet

Here's the link to the actual treasury if you want to blog, tweet or facebook about it:

Submissions: Brown

Every Friday (well except the past two when I was out of town), I put together a treasury of some of my favorite items made by other etsy sellers, post it on my blog and call it the Friday's Favorites.

My last treasury, Every Lady Needs Some Pearls, had 117 views, 36 comments, 37 clicks, 36 admirers and two sales!

This week, I'm looking for BROWNS. If you have any brown in your shop, post the link in the comments and check back tomorrow for the Friday's Favorites.

Don't have brown? Feel free to nominate a friends and help spread the love.

Back again

Ok, I'm back from my numerous trips out of town.

This time I was in Virginia with my sister, my dad, my uncle and my brother came down from DC for 24 hours. It was good family time, and a lot of exercise. I'm really sore now.

There was running,
There was tennis,
There was a 4 mile hike,
There was more tennis,
There was a 7 mile hike (which I think was 8)

Now, walking is kind of a problem.  That should hopefully clear up soon.

The Friday's favorites will be back this week, so don't forget to check in Thursday for submissions!

Back to the Real World

I'm back, but only for a bit... I leave on Saturday to visit my dad, and my sister is coming back from Israel so it will be a little family reunion.  I'll also get to see my uncle, which is usually a big deal, but I just saw him at my second cousin's bar mitzvah.

The bar mitzvah was fun.  Even though half of my family is Jewish, this was the first one I'd been too... well, as a magician, the first one that I wasn't paid to be at.  It was good meeting family members that I didn't know existed, and a ton of fun hanging out with my uncle.

The dogs are happy I'm home, and today for the first time, I took them out on one of my runs.  I decided to do a mile to see how they fared.  Gibbs could have gone another mile, but I think Bess was just about done when we had a block to go. Now they are zonked out on the couch and there is peace in the house.

For the next two Friday's I'll be out of town, and won't be able to do the Friday's Favorites, but don't worry, they'll be coming back soon.

I'll be in town during parts of the week, so AllThingsTangled will still be filling orders.

I'll do my best to blog and keep in touch... if I'm not having too much fun, that

Fun Birthday

Though there was no big party, my birthday was very fun and relaxing.

I gave myself a manicure, then I gave myself a pedicure, then I watched the Olympics while crocheting my boyfriend's new afghan. I did a bunch of cleaning the day before, because I don't believe in cleaning on my birthday.

When the boyfriend got home from work, he had balloons and cake! 

He'd already given me my presents in March, when, for some reason, he thought my birthday was earlier than it was. March... August... hmmm... I guess it's easy to get those confused. Anyway, better early than late.

Then we went to Bahama breeze where I stuffed myself with coconut shrimp and shrimp pasta.  I hardly ever get to eat shrimp since I can't make it because the boyfriend is allergic. Then back home for more olympics and to pack in some german chocolate cake and triple chocolate ice cream.

Needless to say, I didn't do my run on Sunday... I rolled.

Friday's Favorites: Pearls

Pearls are so elegant. They go with everything and make every outfit just a little classier. Even June Cleaver liked to do housework in them.

The treasury widget on craft cult is down, so I had to do a screen shot.

Here is the link to the actual treasury:
