Shutterfly Free Cards!

Shutterfly is once again offering free cards to bloggers! We use Shutterfly all the time, but especially adore the Holiday cards

.



We like Shutterfly because we can easily download our favorite pictures, then create a book, cards, gifts, or order good old-fashioned prints. In fact, some things can then get picked up locally...others will need to be shipped.

The quality of the cards is top notch. We have been making our Christmas cards through Shutterfly for years, and we get MANY compliments.

Shutterfly
is generously offering 3 of my readers the chance to win 25 free cards! Leave me a comment with your email. I will randomly choose 3 winners on Halloween. I will email you the code for 25 free cards.

Spread the word!

Ocean-Themed Bedrooms...Sweet Dreams

Can you imagine falling asleep by the ocean...I mean RIGHT by the ocean? No wave sound machine...no IPod or MP3 player. No AM radio set between stations so the static sounds like "waves" (no i've never done that)...just REAL waves crashing against millions of grains of fabulous sand...tides drifting in and out, Ok...I'm putting myself to sleep...enjoy.

Soothing Color Palette...Chic...Yet Sooo Comfy






Found these fabulous images on decorpad.com
I love the soothing color palette...but especially love the comfort. A living space should be relaxing...sink into a sofa...lounge with a coffee on a Saturday morning...curl up with a good book...

Busy Creating...

I've been busy creating some odds and ends for my Etsy shop. The large Seahorse stamped bag is 8 x 10 inches, and is perfect as a reusable gift bag. I have threaded vintage seambinding through the top for a charming touch. It would also be nice filled with goodies for your wedding party, or left full of treats for your out of town guests at your wedding.
The smaller bags are perfect for a girly birthday party...stuff them with candy necklaces and lipsticks!
Visit my Etsy shop...or order directly through me if you have a paypal account :)
Email me at maggie_3@comcast.net

Peace Out.

Fall Drinks...DD Iced Apple Cider YUM!

I'm not a big "stop and get a coffee" person. Maybe once a week I'll stop in and get a small Iced French Vanilla with Cream and Extra Sugar at Dunkin Donuts. Usually Thursday, as I'm starting to fade. It lasts me all day. STOP laughing!

Now I've found the Dunkin Donuts Iced Apple Cider. Tastes exactly like a McD apple pie. 120 calories in the small...and probably less sugar than I put in my coffee. A nice change of pace this fall.

Try one! (also available hot...but I don't do hot drinks unless I am bitter cold).

Peanut Butter and Chocolate...Nothing Better...especially when it's done by Ben & Jerry's!


When we visited Ben & Jerry's this summer, we stopped in to the "Flavor Graveyard". After all, I had to visit my good friend. The one I have been mourning for years. The one who stole my heart and then left me with a feeling of such emptiness and longing. Yep, the ole Chocolate with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.

It was amazing...and I still keep my fingers crossed that maybe, just maybe, it will show up back in the grocery freezer.

Have they stolen one of your favorites as well?

Keep your eyes out!!
