Friday Etsy Meanderings

So it seems that Friday is the only day that I post.
what can I say about that? what excuse do I have....
I guess winter hit our little family hard with sickness (just colds and such) and general doldrums, but
is in the air! So that's all about to change
I've ordered my seeds...
I'm not as good at gardening as I dream that I am.
In my mind's eye, the garden's bounty is well tended and weedless all season
harvested come Fall.
ahhh, it's a sweet dream.
Hope for me that this year I may come close to living the dream! Hope.
In that vein,
today's post is about all things Spring-y.
Just to put you in the mood, too, in case you aren't.

There are so many lovely finds today.
I seem to really be focused on love and hearts still.
Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays: maybe I spent
too many years in retail, but I love wishing people
"HAPPY [anything]", really.
 And what can be better than a day for wishing LOVE on everyone you meet!
Some people say, 'it's a holiday invented by greeting card companies that makes the
lonely people lonelier.' 
I couldn't disagree more.
I say if you feel that way then you HAVE been manipulated by the greeting card companies.
Because it is a day for LOVE.
That is all.
I love that it's a day that everyone can share love
 without looking like a weirdo.
It's the most peaceful feeling.
And you can always make your own cards ;)

So I say there's still time to spread the love!

Call someone you've been thinking about, an old friend or your sweetie. And don't worry
about what kind of love you have in your life,
There's lots of ways to spread the love, inspiration, general good vibes
now's the time you won't look like a big dweeb!
So make someone's day.

Have a great weekend!!

 Good Morning.

It's the second morning in a row that it has rained here in the desert.
Which, of course, I find dreamy and romantic.
 And that's kind of the perfect mood
to be in for a valentine's party

So I'm late today!
Got out and about early and that meant
that my butt
wasn't fixed in my chair,
my chin wasn't planted firmly in my palm,
while I searched through the latest

But better late than never and Hey! It's still FRIDAY!! :D

if you are firmly planted on this sunny, sunny day
you've found some lovely shops to visit!

Have a great weekend!!
