LOVE this faceted wood succulent planter!

If you like me you will click on all of these things and peruse what my sponsors have for sale.

If you love me … you will *buy* some of these things.

If you love me with all of your heart … you will just send cash.

Please welcome my newest sponsor, Cement Tile Shop.  They carry beautiful handmade encaustic cement floor/wall tiles.  Did I mention they’re beautiful?


I also LOVE Brenda’s new succulent planters. CUTE! No. Wait. They’re aren’t cute … they’re SUPER-CUTE. Yeah. I went there.








So. Do you like me or do you love me? Or maybe it’s even better than that!    M a y b e … you care for me.

And nothing says caring, like cash.

    omg… that shower curtain is gorgeous!

    • Karen says:

      I know. 🙂 ~ karen

      • Sia says:

        I really really think you should have a contest with that curtain as a prize… Hey, chances are slim… but one of your readers totally deserves this 🙂 TOTALLY!!!

        • Karen says:

          LOL. Am I allowed to enter my own contest? That’s the pissy thing about my setup with the clawfoot tub. You need TWO shower curtains. I’m willing to buy one but then I’d have to win another one. O.k. everyone, we’re having a contest (which I am predetermined to win). Yay! So exciting! ~ karen

  2. Kim says:

    You’re shameless…I love you.

  3. Dagmar says:

    Love you lots Karen. Cannot go a day without you. Care for you, but of course (how could you even suggest otherwise?)
    …but isn’t it the thought that counts

  4. Ruth says:

    As long as our exchange rate keeps slipping ridiculously on a daily basis, you’ll just have to take my word for it…. I love you, Karen!

    Rainchains! What a great idea! Must find a way to have one somewhere!

  6. Jen H says:

    Casado Gris tiles and 3 rain chains, please! Great sponsors, as always.

  7. Kelly says:

    That tile makes me want to redo my bathroom. Sure, I love you, but my husband (who shares said bathroom) won’t!

  8. Laura Bee says:

    I love that you tell me things don’t have to be perfect. That whatever you have around the house will probably work. And of course, you make me laugh & that’s very important. I may not be able to love you, but I like you a whole lot!

  9. Love the succulent holders SUPER CUTE! and I have been using rain chains for years, wouldn’t have it any other way.

  10. ruth says:

    Of course I love you! Sadly, I have no cash. Daughter getting married this summer. IF i had cash, I not only would send you some I would buy that shower curtain and the cement tiles – they are to DIE for.

  11. caarin says:

    Holy crap I love everything on this page!!! How did you know?

  12. Elen says:

    Uh-oh. I see a rain chain in my future. Actually, I’ve had my eye on a chain for a while now. Those were all beautiful. And I’m not sure I can go on another day without Brenda’s succulent planter. She makes the greatest, most wonderfulest stuff. 😀 Sometimes you have to make up your own words.

  13. Kristin says:

    I have a linen shower curtain already. I love it. I have to have a vinyl one behind it though. And I love those tiles! I’m currently making tiles myself so I can build a tile-topped table.

    I only just now commented on your flower arrangement post, and I am not sure you check older posts for new comments, but I hope you will because I have something to say about bonnets and artichokes.

  14. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    The cement tiles are gorgeous..everything Brenda make is beautiful..I am so going to make a rain chain now..I love your sponsors..I love you..I know you wouldn’t let a little thing like cash (or the lack of it)come between

  15. Ruth(above) said what I wanted to say, minus the “Daughter getting married this summer”, of course I love you too! Sadly, I have no cash either. IF I had cash, I would buy those planters. The cost of getting them to me would probably be 5 times the planter cost, but would be worth it.

  16. White says:

    You need a sponsor with drain plugs! I am tired of flooding–over an inch on the main floor 3 weeks ago. Might happen again overnight… Serious.

    Well, OK, my place now smells of sewer and smelly socks, but some people are having it worse right now, so I will shut up.
