Welcome to my Newest Blog Series!

In case you missed my announcement last week, I've decided that after seven weeks of my "A Girl Behind the Blog" series I was ready to move on with another series.  This doesn't mean that I won't be posting any more "A Girl Behind the Blog" posts, it just will no longer be a regular series.

So now let's move onto new fun things!  My latest blog series will be very similar to my past series I called "Fabulous Friday Finds", with the only difference being that it is now on Thursdays, and is called "Thrilling Thursday Things!" I think the new title sounds more exciting don't you?




If your a new reader here you probably missed out on what this whole new series is about.  This is when I choose a theme, head on over to Etsy where I find nine items I personally like that fit the particular theme, create a beautiful collage, and post it here for everyone to see!  Because every item I've chosen is from Etsy, everything is either handmade, repurposed or vintage.

The best part about this is that being an Etsy seller myself, I know how difficult it can be to spread the word about how awesome your shop is!  And this is my way of helping to promote these businesses!

Below the collage I will always put the shops name and a direct link to that shop, so that you can visit them and show them some love! 

I feel it's important to spread the word on how important it is to support these types of shops, and praise them for all the hard work they put into creating a lovely space on the web.

This weeks theme is ...

Father's Day
