ain't raining on my parade...

in typical northwest style it was beautiful sunshine yesterday and raining 'cats and dogs' today, but i did not let the rain ruin my parade, oh no...

i kept my mouth firmly zipped on this one dear readers, as i did not want to count my chickens like last time... but now i can let you know that today for the first time ever my 'four hungry children' witnessed their 'old mum' buying a newspaper, actually buying ten to be precise. i have not gone batty, nope i had my reasons and here it is...


and for all of you that would like a little light reading on your monday, you can read the whole article here...
i'm not sure it sounds like me, but i guess that is editing and newspapers for you, but after all the fuss i made about having my picture taken, i confess to you, i'm pretty made up with the results...
i have a ton of other exciting things to share with you throughout the coming week. and no i haven't forgotten i still have to get to 'Thing Number 6' and '7' and do some tagging myself. plus my man took me to Freemont sunday market and i found myself some treasures even in the pouring rain, which i shall be sharing later...plus the most exciting news of all. i have moved into my 'dottie angel headquarters'. all will be revealed in the coming days...

Morning! (I'm always the first one up!) Well done Tif, that's fantastic. I am still completely amazed by etsy and how it's changing people lives, women especially. It's a revolution!
I hope you're prepared for a sudden influx of buyers after that article, what great press, your fingers will be bleeding.
And thank you for your sweet comments on my blog by the way.
