Friday Feature No. 12

Happy Friday! It's been a very happy Friday for us! We had a meeting with our caseworker, and two other caseworker in regards to a little boy who is getting placed with us for concurrent foster care. Provided that all goes well, we will be able to adopt him. He is a DOLL! We haven't met him yet, but we were given some photographs. It's funny, because he looks a LOT like my husband's side of the family! Pretty amazing, huh?!

I wanted to say congratulations to bunny b, who won the Polychrome Cuff Bracelet from Tilley Jewels. Thanks Meredith, for the giveaway, and for the great interview! Thank you to those of you who entered to win!

Well, I had someone lined up to feature today, but I didn't hear back from them with the answers to the interview questions, so I will be featuring a couple of EtsyMinis for shops that I really like. So enjoy!












**********************************************************
Did you think I'd go without a giveaway on our Friday Feature segment? No way, Jose! This time, I will be giving away a $20 Amazon.com Gift Certificate.
To enter: Please visit any and all of these shops, and then come back and tell me what your favorite shop or favorite item is. One comment per customer please. This is open to anyone worldwide. Deadline to enter is Thursday, May 8th at Midnight PST.
If you would like to blog about this giveaway, and our blog, I will give you one extra entry to win. You MUST leave a link to where you blogged about us though! And I must have an easy way to get ahold of you, or I will re-draw a new winner.
Have a great weekend!
Angie

That was hard to choose! I really like the Pine Tar soap from Soapstore, and all of Husart's paintings, especially the Yellow Barn. The other things are a bit girly for me. But ALL GREAT SHOPS!

What a great idea! I came here first to visit, and then I'll head back to Etsy to help keep your thread on top. My favorite store was SoapStore -- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9784704

I made it a favorite, but I just might go back later this weekend to buy it (got my government rebate check, and I should do my part - yeah?!)

Wonderful Blog!
