So my goal with this blog was to post every day because the I love when there's new and fresh things to on the blogs I read everyday.

Obviously this hasn't happened. Working full-time, mom to two (7 & 2) and running my ebay business means a lot to do and never enough time to do it all. But I'm trying. I feel that I have a ton of things to blog about and share and then the day is over. Darn!

I also haven't figured out how to see how many people view my blog. I think knowing that there are folks out there reading my blog would help motivate me! SO...if you read my blog, leave me a comment! Tell me what you like. What you'd like to see. Ideas for blogs. I would sure appreciate it and look forward to it! :-)

THIS is why I love Goodwill!

I haven't yet blogged about my love for thrift stores and of my tried and true favorite, Goodwill, but I definitely plan on it. However, I couldn't pass up this chance to share with you this AMAZING find this past Labor Day weekend!

These candle holders are gorgeous and go perfect with my dining room table. I knew I found something special and especially when I saw "Jan Barboglio" on the bottom. I had never heard of Jan Barboglio but knew by the quality of the handcrafting they were worth something.

So...I was right! A little googling and there it was. Jan Barboglio is a designer/artist who is inspired by the romance of historic Mexico. She creates decorative iron accessories and each piece is hand-cut, fashioned, forged, and finished to a tanned-leather luster. An embossed, etched signature is stamped. Check out her stuff at Nieman Marcus here.

Best part??? I paid $2.99 EACH! Each of these candle holders retails for $88! What a great find and it's these kinds of steals that keep me going back!

Free Flowers Tomorrow September 3rd!

Tommorrow is officially FTD Good Neighbor Day!
Hundreds of FTD florists across the U.S. and Canada are planning exciting local events, gathering sponsors, making philanthropic relationships and helping to spread friendship and kindness to their neighbors through the distribution of free floral bouquets.
Find a participating FTD Good Neighbor Day florist by clicking here.
FTD florists have celebrated this tradition since 1994, encouraging all neighbors to help create a friendlier, more caring and compassionate world through the gift of flowers. Customers are encouraged to keep one flower for themselves and give the others away — brightening the day of many other people.
What a great idea! Unfortuntaely no FTD florists are participating in my area but thought I would share with you so you could brighten someone's day! :-)
