Happy Earth Day Everyone! ethanollie knows how to do it!

heartwarming and encouraging to see the network of online shops and blogs, not only talking about but actually making an effort to celebrate Earth Day.

I've mentioned the lovely kim {ethanollie from trampoline} before.. I'm in love with her unique polaroid collages & now all the vintage love she's been sharing in her shop.

Her shop announcement says "welcome to trampoline! where i bounce all my ideas around, and then see what comes about." "part of a new series i'm working on in celebration of Earth Day entitled TERRAIN. each one will honor a different landscape. we are so lucky to live among them every day, aren't we?"

well one of the sincerely nice ideas to come offering free shipping on any Terrain Collage Piece through the end of the month and 25% of the sale goes to Hope In Bloom, a Massachusetts charity that plants gardens for sufferers of breast cancer.

As brittni from {paper n stitch} said in her post.. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
Visit Trampoline's shop here.

out & about...sandwich cape cod...check this house out!

if your in the market... or if your just like me and love going to open houses...well, because you just love must go to this one!

after searching for a home in sandwich for 6 months... i am somewhat of an amateur professional house stalker in town. this is my favorite has everything, beautifully renovated & decorated (did i say beautiful? i hope so!)...walking distance to boardwalk & town...across from the marsh...
ok...i'll just let the pictures do the talking...

Open house this Sat {April 4th, 1:00 - 4:00 pm}
100 Tupper Rd., Sandwich, Ma

Graceful, iconic Federal architecture in the original brick Parson Ezra Goodwin House, dated 1815. Behind the front facade is a large, lovingly renovated and redecorated home. 11 rooms, 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths. This early spring view of the house shows its large extension, added in the early to mid-1900's.

below a few pictures i took at christmas on the holiday home tour..
i've been stalking this home for awhile

you can also see a video tour here
more info from Joan Bates realtor

etsy finds for lisa

lisa.. the ultra talented force behind Portland Child Photography just happens (luckily) to be my daughter in law. among other talents, she is also a dedicated runner. lisa had a birthday awhile back and I thought I'd surprise her and dedicate an etsy treasury to her.

a spot for an etsy treasury is becoming harder and harder to grab and publish as so many people are waiting to create one. a way for me to use some creative energy and also highlight a few of my favorites among the many talented people on etsy. i really enjoy making them!

well..I finally managed to get one! as luck would have it...lisa is on vacation, away from all means of modern contact...yup... think deserted island .....{sun, sand, water}

so..we will all have to enjoy this treasury for her.. until she returns to this cruel, cruel world..

take a might also enjoy visiting all the wonderful sellers on this treasury..

as this treasury disappears from etsy in a few days i have included links below
bestartstudios2, heidiburton, motomoto,
laurasgeorge, ethanollie, vintagevendor
doghoundblues, shanon1972, jcparkerfineart
minitoes, fabrichouse, gleancreativereuse

Oh..and you do not want to miss lisa's photography here

now..lisa aren't you sorry you missed this :)
