Stupid 30-Day-No-Shopping Challenge!   I love Etsy though, if you want to splurge- (meaning, you can unlike myself) do so with an amazing small-business owner that crafts her own goods.  I truly believe that a few treats once in awhile will help your frugality goals in the long run.  All work and no play is not good- but at the very least, enjoy some Etsylicious eye-candy 🙂







Dainty shaped soaps and guest towels are no longer for Grandma’s guest room.  These colorful soapy confections are great for a new generation.

Donuts are the new cupcakes.  Find this and other retro-delicious designs @ CollisionWare

Okay, so now we know how average we are with our cellphones and our grotesquely excessive water usage- what are you going to do to make your weekend and your life above average?

Dear Tiffany and your Oh-So-Romantic Window displays.  KNOCK IT OFF 😉

An AMAZING handmade valentine from my bestie!

The snow in Chicago is finally melting- not being able to use the sidewalks was getting pretty old!

These little baddies are my newest O.P.I. colors:   You Don’t Know Jacques!, MyOwn Private JetLincoln Park After Dark (Matte).  I am obsessed with “My Own Private Jet” and “You Don’t Know Jacques.”

This picture doesn’t even do this gorgeous hand-painted yarn from Uruguay justice- in real life the colors are bright and vivid.  This is done with about 48 stitches on size 7 needles.

I’m a wee bit behind on posting this week- but I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day!  I’m so ready for it to be over though, enough with the annoying emails from retailers and predicable Groupons- I’m ready for spring to be here and I’m looking forward to St. Patty’s Day!


Hope your day is filled with love, and even if it feels like it isn’t, here’s some humor!
