Going through Glitter Withdrawal



Tomorrow is going to be a most extraordinary and wonderful day. I am going thrifting, to my three favorite, never know what you're going to find, stores, hitting Borders, and the cherry on top will be Hobby Lobby. Sounds like heaven to me :) The only thing that could make it even better would be having a yummy Starbucks Latte to go with it....(insert Homer Simpson voice...mmmmmm....latte...)

This past evening was spent looking around blogland, really enjoying each site, instead of rushing through. There is just so much beauty and talent. It is mezmerizing, and almost perplexing that the internet gives us access to all of this, where our parents would have really had to search and dig through magazines, or word of mouth, to find other artists with similar interests. Truly we are very lucky! Such a wonderful art community, such beauty, and right at our fingertips...so nice!

Don't forget to check out Pfatt Marketplace today, as Sandy is updating, lots of fabulous goodies just a click away...

Hi Colleen,It's been awhile since I left you a comment. Sounds like you are going to have a wonderful New Year. Thats a great picture of you and the family. Wow..you lost 83.lbs how did you do it? I need to lose a lot of weight myself.

Have a great time thrifting and treat yourself to that Starbucks Latte.

Hi :) I too am going around blogs I've not visited in awhile. Lovely pic. of the cupcakes YUM !!
Yes we are lucky to have all this wonderful information at our fingertips, and the number of fab artists out there, people that would still be way behind the scenes if the internet was never born.
Have a lovely day :) Tracy

I count it a true blessing that I get to be in touch with so many talented people through the internet. We are so blesed. How can you not like all the stores you mentioned?! And Starbucks may be reaching saturation and all that, but my sweetie and I try to have one each day!

Sounds like my perfect day too. Today, in my husband's absence I created a Valentine Log for his V-day and posted it on my blog before I hid it from him. Tomorrow is mine - I will hit all the thrifts. Hope your hunting was happy- be sure and update us about your finds!

I was just thinking the same thing after perusing through "Blogland"...how different things are today for us than when my Mom was my age.

But, I'm also getting nothing done! LOL...just kidding...I think I hear my laundry calling me~!
