Be Happy Today

A friend of mine, who is dying, sent me this link, which turned out to be the best Christmas present anyone could give me. If he can find happiness, we all can. This video made me.....happy! 24hoursofhappy.

West Elm Follow Up

I thought you might enjoy seeing a few photos from last weekend's Etsy Pop-Up Shop event at West Elm Edina. What fun! Even though it was one of the coldest days of the last three winters, holiday shoppers were not about to let a little sub-zero weather put a damper on their holiday spirit! This is, after all, Minnesota! The photo above depicts my display table stocked with my holiday cards and posters.

Here's Clare surrounded by her very charming paintings! In addition to her individually hand painted canvases, she specializes in commissions and custom work, which you can check out in her Etsy store here.

And here we have the display area of Michael and Tom, two friends who came up with a very innovative design for displaying wine, along with an assortment of rustic copper wall decor that can be customized per your request. Check out their website/shop Vetrina Del Vino. Thanks to all my friends who braved the cold to come visit! And for those who would like to do it all again, West Elm Edina is hosting another Etsy Pop Up Event this Saturday, December 14th, with seven more Etsy artists. We know you're not done shopping, check it out! Directions are on West Elm's website.

cake.   mmmmm....thanks!
