The Wonders of the World Wide Web

I have no idea how I ended up at the 2 items I'm about to blog about. I will preface this post by saying I can't stand to shop, not even online. But, somehow I ended up on these 2 different sites and loved what I saw. These people don't know me, have no
idea I'm blogging about them, I'm not receiving anything for this . . . sadly - I just fell in love with what they were selling, and wanted to tell you about it.
Before we got this little gal, I would have told you I wasn't that big of an animal lover. We've had dogs before and I liked them, but I didn't fall in love with them. I had 3 boys to take care of and sometimes the dogs just seemed like 1 more chore. With Anna
Belle, I've fallen into that "not one of THOSE weirdo dog lovers" categories. Never in my wildest dreams would I have pictured myself spending money on a painted wooden block of the family pet. But, alas I have proof. Somehow out on the net, I stumbled upon
this site and had to have one.
Now, I'll be truthful and admit I didn't read the fine print; it's smaller than I thought. Even though, they give very clear measurements on their page (I'm a horrid skimmer when I read). But, the size gives it that much more character :) So cute, painted so
lovely, wonderful shadows & a beautiful pale pink background. I just sent them a jpg photo of Anna Belle, they asked a few questions, and bang, beautiful work of art!
So happy with it!! They were wonderful to work with. I'm going to order one for my SIL. Her two poodles have been together almost since birth, are getting really old and I know she will absolutely
cherish it. What a wonderful Christmas present that will make.
My second purchase . . . beautiful wooden utensils . . .
How beautiful are these? These are built to last a lifetime. They come with really good instructions on how to care for them. They are handmade and thicker than normal wooden spoons. Feels really
good in my hand.
I really love this one; perfect for scraping the peanut butter or refried beans out of their container.
I bought these
. Great guy! I love handmade things. I didn't buy them all at once, saved up for the next round. Now I really want this
dough oar mixer
, how cool is that?
That's probably my quota of shopping til Christmas, but what great buys!
