Tuesday's Tribute: Sharing the Love Giveaway!


As promised, I’m dedicating my Tuesday’s Tribute to all of you! Your kindness and support has meant the world to me! My life has been forever changed by all of the bloggy love I have received since Dec. 31, 2008. Thank you!

My 100th post is coming next Monday. As I shared with you previously, I'm hosting a Monster Giveaway to say THANK YOU for your incredible support of my humble blog! There will be details in my 100th post on how to enter!

I've gathered a HUGE amount of goodies for my giveaway! I am taking a poll over the next few days to help me determine if I should break it into several groups of goodies or offer one big lolla-pa-looza! (Just vote over on the left sidebar. I really appreciate your input!)

I’ve had a few emails asking me how I chose the items for this extravaganza. I am sharing my favorite things with you! I am also throwing in a few things chosen by Tween Caveboy and Miss Kitty. Plus, I’m adding some fun items from my own shops, Black Crow Boutique and Monkey McNoodles.

Now for the good stuff! I am going to share lots of items today. However, I am still adding a few more things! A complete list will be up on my 100th post!! Are you ready? It’s a long list! Let’s go!

*Wise Owl Necklace from Kristen’s Custom Creations! I LOVE Kristen’s jewelry and I have an affinity for owls (as you will soon notice!) And as Kristen so kindly suggested, lots of us bloggers are “nightowls” too! I love that is says “Wise.” I find it to be a very strong affirmation to trust my own wisdom every day! Find her Etsy shop here! Great Mother's Day gifts over there!!! I ordered one of her tags for my son and he LOVES it!



*Philosophy “Amazing Grace” 3-in-1 Shower Gel, Shampoo, Bubble Bath! One of my absolute favorite beauty products!



*Massive Sunshine Bag from Jen Sue Wild over at Diamonds, Fur and Laundry! The minute I saw this, I fell in love! I love the size (especially since I’m dragging my kid’s stuff with me everywhere!) She is super talented! Look for her Etsy shop opening soon!




*Fabulous Fabric Fortune Cookies from Laurora! Claire over at A Soldier, a Princess and Me makes these for her Etsy shop, Laurora! I LOVE them! They are great for all sorts of gift giving, party favors and more! Go visit her wonderful Etsy shop here!



*Vintage Storybook Forest Friends & Cowgirl Domino Magnets from Stampin Mom! I won one of Jamie’s magnets and fell in love with them! They are adorable! Jamie has all sorts of treasures in her Etsy shop! Go say hello and browse a bit!






*Tattoo Devil Duckie! Of course, my giveaway wouldn’t be complete without a Rubber Duckie!



*Dirty Pretty Silhouette! I know you want one! Winner will get to choose gender and devil or angel. I love, love, love these!!!!! Raven’s shop, Dirty Pretty Things is filled with delightful treasures! Head on over there and browse around! I love it over there!
*Birthday Party Game by eeboo! This is one of my daughter’s favorite games! We play it over and over again! Eeboo makes fantastic children’s games! We offer wonderful things like this in our ebay store, Monkey McNoodles!



*UGLYDOLL Bop & Beep! You get two Uglies in one 14” huggable doll! We sell out of these all the time at Black Crow Boutique (our whimsical Halloween store!) Bop is on one side and Beep is on the other! Super soft and cuddly!


*Vintage Skull & Crossbones Paper Party Garland! Our Black Crow Boutique customers love these vintage style paper garlands! They’re also great for pirate parties!


*Mini Owl Finger Puppet by Folkmanis! We can’t keep these in stock at Black Crow Boutique or Monkey McNoodles! Our customers go crazy for these!



*Owl Vinyl Catch-all Bag! This is the perfect place to keep pens, post-its, band-aids, gum, etc. I keep mine in my car. I LOVE it!


(Can you tell I LOVE owls?!!! )

And finally, *Crime Scene Band-Aids!



WHEW! I told you it was HUGE!!!!!! Do you like it?

Thanks for hanging through the loooong post!!

Im having a small seizure over that bag. OH MY GOSH. I love it!
So cool! There are so many great items.....

Last week I was driving down the highway and saw an owl. If I didn't have a monster 18 wheeler behind me...on my butt... I could have stopped...I actually had my camera. I was disappointed the entire drive home for not turning around. I heart owls too. They are amazing animals.

Thanks for sharing Kristen's Esty shop! You shared it awhile back and I checked her out. I got a necklace from her mommy collection - the one with the baby feet - for my birthday earlier this month. I love it and wear it every day.

(Update! Comments are now closed for the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!)

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
