Window Shop Blog Hop--At Last

First of all, I want to apologize for my post not posting on the correct date. I knew I was going out of town, and scheduled my post for Sunday, 11-11-12 when I left. I am still trying to figure out what I did wrong, but unfortunately my scheduled post did not make it's scheduled appearance. I am so sorry, Rita of Toltec Jewels, who is the gracious hostess.  This blog hop was a beautiful idea, and I know I will enjoy hopping to see everyone else's window. So here is my contribution, even if it is a bit late.

My intention in joining this hop was to motivate me to go ahead and open my own shop, to make the time to finally make it happen. I am still going to do that, but it is not ready yet.  I do know that I love to give my jewelry as gifts. When Rita of Toltec Jewels came up with the idea of a Window Shop Blog Hop to advertise our own or to feature someone else's shop, I was hoping to open shop and fill it with lots of yummy handmade copper jewelry. When it became apparent that opening the doors to a shop wasn't going to happen, I decided that I would feature a shop or shops that supported handmade! Up first---

  1. Gina,

    Wow and Wow!! I am completely delighted with your post because I have been looking for pillow boxes since summer! Can you believe it? You are a complete wish come true here, and I'm so excited to not only finally find pillow boxes, but handcrafted ones? Hot dog! (And honestly, a big part of the reason I couldn't find them was I could not name even name them; I didn't know they were called pillow boxes... lol) Thank you so much! You rock! "MIxed Messages 4 U" is a great store!

    I also love the delicious Argan Oil Mist for Hair and Body~ Yellow Cake Flavor! Yummm, and so wonderful for the Holidays whether giving gifts or taking time for that important self-care! Love!!

    Gina, I'm sorry your scheduled post didn't post for you. Blogger has done that to me too. I appreciate your sharing with us all. Your shops are so cool, you've inspired me to do a little spotlight post on the Window Holiday Hop Stores and products.

    Thank you for participating!
    Your Holiday Shopping Window is excellent :)


  2. Thank you, Rita! I thought perhaps, since I am fairly new at blogging, it was something I did or didn't do that caused my post to "not post". I so appreciate your understanding and forgiveness, and I am delirious with happiness that I helped you in some way after my faux pas. I can't wait to see your spotlight!

    Happy Thanksgiving!


Thank you for your comments!
