Little Big Shop

29 Oct

Here’s what’s up in the shop:

Daisy Mug Set, two is better than one.

Five Turquoise Flower Mugs, five, however, is best of all.

Vintage Poppy Mug, who doesn’t like poppies? Murderers. That’s who.

Japanese Stripe Mug, this mug is cooler than I am.

Chrysanthemum Designer Mug, this mug has a signature on its bottom. Like a Cabbage Patch Kid you can drink out of.

Follow Friday – Fall-Like Photos

28 Oct

Nature has finally decided to act fall-like around here, which means cooler temperatures and windy days. I’m celebrating by posting my favorite fall-like photos.

This weekend we’re celebrating Halloween by driving down south so that my husband and a few of my friends can leap over hot coals, wear viking hats, and drink beer. Should be good times.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple stepsfurther.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.
