200th Post and an Etsy Shop Launch!

You're supposed to pretend that the last post was #199 so that this one can be #200 (messed up due to lack of internet Friday)!

I am so happy to be at 200 posts! It was fabulous to make it to 100 and 200 came faster than I thought. I figured something exciting should be happening at my I started an Etsy shop!

I have been toying with the idea for months, but I usually don't actually follow through on my many "business" ideas. With all that I have seen and learned about Etsy over the last months, I thought "Why not?" I had actually already collected most of the items with this idea in mind - so there's really nothing to lose.

My shop is called Pretty Potables and features unique gift baskets that contain a combination of new and used cups, mugs, teapots, etc. and related items. I have an ad on my sidebar that you can check out or you can go to to see my shop! I will be adding a few more items over the next day or so.

Here are a couple of examples:

The Days of Tea and Roses

Coffee Break

For the month of December, I am offering a little something extra to my wonderful readers and friends. If you make a purchase from my shop, I will include a half-dozen homemade biscotti with your order (your choice of double chocolate walnut or dried cranberry). When you purchase, just let me know that you are a reader of my blog and your choice of biscotti flavor!

If you know anyone that might be interested in the items in my shop, I would really appreciate it if you would refer them to me. I hope to make a little extra money to contribute to our family and to help pay for things like shipping costs of blog giveaways - LOL!

Thank you all for coming by and reading my blog! And thank you for all the wonderful comments - bloggers love comments (hint, hint)!

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend!

  5. Your shop looks very nicely put together. I like the baskets too. Embarking on a new venture is scarey isn't it? Same way with me and my photography! I have not been on the computer the last couple days, very busy with photo shoots,and then of course the OU Football game! Which I fell asleep during the 4th quarter! I can't believe it. Woke up and heard we won, so that is all that mattered. Plus I have it DVRed! Good grief!

  6. Congrats, congrats, congrats. What more can I say about two wonderful achievements?
