Shopping & Inspiration Destinations

Ha ha!!

Ok, ready for some fun & useful cyber hopping/shopping?

First jump is to my amazing friend Tina over at The Enchanted Home. She has invited a group of great and creative bloggers & entrepreneurs to her blog today and is having each of them share a couple of great gifts for the holidays. Now, we are talking Gifts Galore, folks! Personal and inspirational. Perhaps this will be the only gift inspiration you need. I am honored to be part of this fun group and be asked to highlight a couple of favorite items from my own store, Splendid Avenue. Hop over to Tina’s blog — here  – and enjoy all the ideas!

I plan to do a little shopping myself over at Tina’s store. I think an old, pretty dough tray will be coming home to MOI soon! I will place large pine cones and glass bulbs in mine as a holiday display but the tray is so versatile and can be used for many things. (If you decide to buy after seeing this, please remember to say hi to beautiful Tina from me!)

My dear friend Marianne called me yesterday to tell me that the Ilse Jacobsen boots we carry are featured in TradHome with a link to our store.

What a nice surprise! It made me extra happy since I am already a fan of the magazine. A must read for sure!

Another MUST read is House Of Fifty. I have plugged Janell’s magazine many times and I am very impressed with where she is taking her passion and talent and how she leads a wonderful design community. I have had a chance to hang out with this brilliant lady, blogger, designer and Founding Editor and I love her! What you see is what you get with Janell.

New for the House Of Fifty is that it now costs a tiny amount to read it (a lot goes into publishing a nice magazine). $1.50 is the cost to read the magazine on your computer/MAC (and .99 cents at ITunes). It is worth every cent. (You pay per issue). The magazine is packed with great ideas, tips and great sources for the the holiday season.

And if you buy the magazine you will see our store ad with a discount code which gives you 15% off any merchandise in our store, Splendid Avenue. Take advantage of it because we have lots of great new things, with holiday spirit in mind!

Happy hopping & Happy Weekend!

P.S One more blog post and then I am off to Sweeeeeden! Wihoo to family and friends back home — I can’t wait to see and hug you all again!!!!!
