Treasures from Blogland

Here are a few new things that I have recently bought from some wonderful blog friends. I love buying handmade items from other blogger's. There is something special about knowing who made some of the things in my house instead of everything saying Made in China. I love the basket from Pam, the gameboard from Kindra, and now these new things ~
This adorable Easter Blessings pinkeep that Lisa from Blacksheep Prims made. It looks just perfect hanging on my pie safe.
I love my new red pillow that Karen from My Colonial Home made. Isn't it gorgeous ? ! It will have a place on my bed on my red quilt that it matches perfectly.

My Greensleeves Java Jacket that Kimberly made ~ I love it ! I just got back from Starbucks a few minutes ago because I could wait no longer to use it ! MMM, that Nonfat Peppermint Mocha was good and even better with my cup sitting in the cozy java jacket ! I also ordered a cool red pirate one for my mom and another flower one for my sister, but forgot to take a picture before I mailed them off yesterday. I'll be ordering more of these for sure !
This is not a new thing from that I bought from a blogger, but something I found at Weathered and Worn this past weekend. I love this school bell especially since our home is our school. Isn't it neat ! ? I think it is ! That's all I have to share for today. It's a good TV night tonight ~ Biggest Loser and American Idol, so I need to get ready to take Paige to Taekwondo, cook dinner, and get ready for our shows. Have a great night !

Love all your new goodies! The pinkeep is just perfect there! Handmades are the best, I too love looking around and those items make me think of that person!

Janene said...

You are absolutely right about handmades! I feel the same way!
It keeps money in the U.S. and in Canada (for Kimberly!)
I'm looking forward to receiving my handmade from you!

Janae,
I love handmades, too, and it is so nice to look around and know a friend made it. I have my fall things from you, some things from Lisa, Kindra, Karen's penny rugs. What a wonderful post.

It's great to see you are getting bits of pieces of handmades from blogland. I would sure like to do that someday. :) Oh and love your school bell!

Love all the new goodies you got!! I agree that handmades are the best! It saddens me when I go to my shows and see all the "made in China" things. Isn't it wonderful to know who made an item...when you look at it, you think of them and smile.

Janae,

I love everything you got! It means alot when you can look at something you bought and know it was lovingly made and found it's way to your home! I have such a growing list of things I want...but I have to be patient, I guess!

Blessings,
Tammy

All of your new goodies are awesome! I love hadnmade items too. I haven't had a chance to buy from any bloggers yet, but I will one day soon. Bloggers are such inspiration for me.

I Love everything! What wonderful hand-dids.
Those gals are all so, so talented!! (including you) :)

To know they are handmade, AND to know they are made by friends, makes them even more wonderful, huh?!

Enjoy your evening, Janae.

Hugs-Kath
