A Yummy For Y'all

Y'all know I'm addicted to Etsy. It's not Etsy itself, but rather all of the wonderful and unique treasures it holds. Sometimes I even find something fabulously yummy outside of Etsy, too! I want to share this knowledge with y'all (How many more times do y'all think I can say "y'all" in this post?). I've decided to create a new weekly/semi-monthly post about fun things I'm currently coveting. As much as I love to plan, I've actually joined a Boot Camp (I know... I'm shocked, too... more on that later, gators) that's taking up oodles of my free time (it started on Monday – I can barely move my fingers to type this). I'm going to do my darndest to post these every Friday (because, seriously, TGIF). But, it might stretch out to Saturday. Maybe Sunday. Heck! Today is even Thursday! Think of it not as me just being inconsistent, but me just loving to SURPRISE y'all.

Now, on to the first YUMMY... drum roll please... ECLECTIC WHATNOT (click on the link!). I have a blogging “crush” on Ruthanne (and you’ll adore her “weekly crushes” posts). I love luv lllooovvveee her blog. It's filled with so much eye-candy you're gonna need a fillin' (that was a dental shout-out for my buddy, Nelly!). I’ve been following Ruthanne for a couple of months. Not only is she an ah-MAZING photographer and gourmet chef (she posts drool-inducing photos of the most DELISH looking foods and their recipes), but she's super crafty, to boot. My kind of gal.

Here's a tidbit about TLC: I like to "treat" myself occasionally. My poor Hubby. Recently, I treated myself to one of Ruthanne's Ruffled dSLR Camera Strap Covers. The Melanie Smooter Edition (named after Reese Witherspoon's - one of my most favorite actresses - character in Sweet Home Alabama). Isn't it pretty? My iPhone pics truly don’t capture the beauteous colors. It's grey (the new "gray") and white houndstooth with a hot pink-y fuchsia ruffle. In the words of one of my idols, Rachel Zoe, "I die."





Although I have virtually no clue how to work the fancy camera my Hubs gave me for Christmas (I can't even work my iPhone camera--see above--one of my New Year's Resolutions is to at least learn how to turn the durn thing on--LOL.), it's now magnificently accessorized! We all know accessories are like the icing on mini cupcakes.

I'm also givin’ googley eyes to Ruthanne's new “Imperfectly Pleated” Scarves. The sunny yellow one in particular (Hint… Hint, ELC). Ruthanne is on Etsy and has her own New Shop, too (click on the links!). Y'all go give Ruthanne a big HOWDY now! Wish her a HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY this week, too! She's celebrating three years.

Smooch, y'all. And stay tuned!

P.S. – Be sure and read this post with an extra Texas-twangy tone.
