Shopping on a Monday

Monday, October 22, 2012

Do you wake up on Monday feeling a need for an extra yawn. I know I do, and I'm not sure why as I am self employed and work pretty much seven days a week. I wonder if it is a holdover from school days when the dreaded Monday made you want to snuggle back down in your warm bed for a few more hours of sleep.

Well, Monday is here so that means its time for another day of Shopping on Monday. 

I just want to let you know that I have been getting lectured lately about not promoting my own business enough. That, as it is how I support myself, I need to get it out there front and center. (I think it is a holdover idea from my childhood, where I was taught it isn't nice to blow your own horn) So I will be including one of my items in the list each Monday and I will also be sharing them with you from time to time. I don't want Sister Mary rapping me on the knuckles with her ruler.

So without further ado, grab that second cup of coffee (come on you know you want to) and enjoy today's wonderful finds.

Don't forget to click on the price below each item to see it on Etsy and the name of the shop for more lovelies from the seller.

  12. I have a soft spot for vintage family photos because I am a genealogy researcher. It breaks my heart to see them in stores because all I can think of is how excited a family member might be to get a copy of it. Lol. I would buy them all if I could just to try and reunite them. Sadly most of them have no information on the backs.
    That frame is really something. Perfect for the photo.
    So glad you came by and signed up to follow my blog.
