First and foremost I’d like to say thank you to my sponsors for choosing The Art of Doing Stuff for their advertising needs.
In return I try to choose them for my purchasing needs.
I can’t always afford what I want to buy, but if I could justify it, these are the things I would get for myself.
By the way, I have really good sponsors. Where else can you come to get a chicken coop sign, a Birkin bag and a have a website designed? Probably nowhere would be my guess.
The Cement Tile Shop.
I LOVE these modern floor tiles.
Think you’re good with money? So did I until I took money coach, Nancy Zimmerman’s quiz .
I also love a new introduction to Brenda Watts’ Cattails Studio line. These little salt cellars and matching wooden spoons.
Welcome Lab Consignment to my site!
It’s run by Lauren. The daughter of one of my neighbours.
If I can’t have the GENUINE Birkin bag she has for sale,
I’d like either this Black Valentino dress
or these cute Hunter ballet flats.
It may seem odd that a gal who loves a black Valentino dress would also love a “Farm Fresh Eggs From Happy Chickens” sign, but it’s true. I’m SO excited to welcome Bainbridge Farm Goods as one of my latest sponsors I could scream. Or buckock at the very least. She has a huge variety of hand designed signs, (not just for chicken owners). And THIS is my very favourite in the bunch.
Are you familiar with those sassy Scotsmen decorators Colin & Justin? According to Wikipedia they’ve been credited with introducing laminate flooring to British households. Well, they also have a line of products including VERY luxurious candles, sold at Ellenoire! This pine scented would be my favourite.
As you saw, I’m going to give growing radishes under a cold frame a shot. I just planted them in the last few days. I planted some pink radishes, but if I’d known Laura had PLUM PURPLE radishes I’d have been planting those too. They’re GORGEOUS. Valentino dress gorgeous.
A few years ago I did a post that remains one of my favourites to this day. I made Jam Charms. Since this is canning season, I thought it’d be a good time to mention these again. I just used regular photo charms from Photo Jewelry and hung them off my jam jars. You could make them for preserves you give away to identify what’s inside!
If you click through you’ll see the GREAT thing that Trisha Rose does with her very own Rough Linen tea towels …
I’m constantly stunned by how great Wayne & Selina from WayLay web design are. I have yet to come up with a ridiculous problem that they weren’t able to solve. They were the ONLY ones who could get my Coop Cam up and running (which is now down due to accidentally leaving the camera in the rain). But more importantly, they were one of the first people to email me to see if I was O.K. when the fella ran away from home. If you need web help or a site designed use them. Please.
And finally … an interesting sponsor for any of you who read the comments section here on this site. You may be familiar with Marti. Well, Marti Smarti has written a book on how to fall asleep. It will get you off the pills and onto the pillow. She dedicated the book to me. No she didn’t.
