More Shop Love!


1-CalendarLast week I put out my first “Shop Love!” post.

I wanted to start promoting our blogging friends’ small businesses.

I’ve done a little more shopping . . .

and I won a giveaway . . .

so today I’d like to highlight four more bloggers and stores.

Once again, each one impressed me with both their BEAUTIFUL products . . .

and their QUALITY customer service.

Here are their contact links!

You can also check them out ANYtime on my new “Shop Love” page above. β™₯

(1) The Original Thread: I fell in LOVE with this inspirational 2013 calendar, which is designed by Melanie of The Original Thread blog and sold as a fabric panel in her Spoonflower shop at Madex Designs. She has many other gorgeous fabrics as well!

2-pdf Patterns(2) Terri’s Notebook: I recently won a lovely giveaway from Terri’s Notebook—two pdf patterns. I was going to wait until I made the items to share them . . . but that hasn’t happened yet, so I’ll share what they WILL look like. πŸ™‚ The first pattern is for Stuff Baskets and the second is for a Checkerboard Set, and both are for sale at her Patchwork Trails Etsy Shop. You can also visit Terri’s portfolio here and her paper goods shops here. Terri’s motto is “Explore. Dream. Create.” Don’t you love that? β™₯

3-Apron(3) A Kitschy Kitchen: I’m just starting to make aprons myself, but I know someone on my gift list who will LOVE this one! It’s from Megan of A Kitschy Kitchen: The Life and Studio of an Apronista who sells her creations at her Etsy shop. Notice, too, the adorable fabric gift card holder! Stressing quality as well as beauty, Megan’s motto is “Buy Well, Buy Once.” She also has some other lovely items in her shop, such as embroidery, cocktail napkins, and coasters.

4-Tags(4) TheHighNoteDotNet: I’ve followed Darilyn’s lovely blog thehighnotedotnet for a long time now and was so excited to receive my first purchase from her Etsy shop, which specializes in vintage music projects. Darilyn even included a little gift . . . a copy of my favorite quote, which I embroidered on a pillow and she offers to all of us for free to make an iron-on transfer. She graciously provides tutorials for her projects as well. And check out her craft room . . . it’s amazing!

  1. It is so kind of you to promote our blogging friends’ small businesses, I really appreciate that initiative !!.

  2. So happy you won 2 of my sewing patterns! I hope you love making the projects. Thank you for the shout-out. I love reading about other blogs and handmade goodies too.

    • I can’t wait to make them, Terri! I’m hoping to make the checkers set for a Christmas gift yet . . . but if not, then a birthday gift soon after! I do love my gift . . . thank you again! πŸ™‚

    • You’ll love them all! I’m really trying to make the switch to buying from small businesses at every opportunity, and I keep being amazed at all the wonderful opportunities to do this right here on our blogs! Enjoy, Lois! πŸ™‚

      • I’ve been trying to keep it local when I can, but just because it’s sold local doesn’t mean it was made local, so I too am looking to do more shopping from etsy and other online sites that sell handmade instead.

  3. First, thank you for always stopping by my blog and either commenting on or just “liking” my posts! It has been a bit nuts over here and I have been remiss in returning the “bloggy” love!!
    Next – I adore that it is “snowing” on your blog. That’s probably the only snow this FL gal will see!! Looking forward to seeing more posts!!

  4. i have been remiss in thanking you for including me and the shop! I so appreciate you, your blog, and for always being that smiley voice (in my head) of support for me.
    You are truly amazing!
