What are they worth these days? A penny.. they can be found at the bottom of your purse, on your countertop, at the bottom of your drive through coffee change compartement of your car, perhaps you even have a full jar of them at home. These days people just don't do anything with their pennies.

Until I fell upon Wish Upon a Penny on Etsy. I was surfing my Activity, checking out a cute studio, then I checked out their faves and found this. How cute is this? Penny art necklaces. Brilliant. Use those pennies, gift them and give them a new use (or value).

Wishful Wednesday – Jumbo Hammock Chair May 26, 2010

I saw this item on one of my favorite blogs the other day Paper*Cake Finds and knew right then that this was my newest ‘crush’ item. In Montreal today it is a balmy 32 degrees with 45% humidity making it feel more like 36 (for my American friends this means: 97). It is a real rarity for May weather, considering last summer we only got about 2 weeks of this type of weather during August. So let’s be clear, I am not complaining in the least, I would rather this gorgeous weather than the wet, rainy, cool temperatures from last year. Bring it on!

I would enjoy it a lot more with this Hammock Chair from RiseNShineFarm on Etsy. Everything would look nicer, feel cooler, especially with a small table next to it for my drink *wink*

Link Love – Jenni20 Designs May 15, 2010

In today’s edition of Link Love I’m going to introduce you to the fabulous gift giving shop of Jenni 20 Designs. I first was introduced to Jenni last summer via Twitter, she is one of the sweetest girls on my ‘crafty’ user list.  She is super crafty and sells items we all use, in attractive fabrics. Reading her profile bio I almost felt like I was reading my own, at first, minus the poodle (mine is a Heinz 57 special) and my couch is not vintage, just weathered:

“Jenni20 started sewing and crafting in the 80s under the tutelage of her fabulously talented mother. When she’s not dreaming up some new project, Jenni either works tirelessly on adding to her fabric stash, hanging out on her vintage couch with her poodle, reading anything in print…or doing all three simultaneously!”

Take a look around her shop and find some eco-friendly items, some vintage finds and some passport covers that will add a little spice to your travel.

Any lover of fabric is a friend of mine!
