Black Friday and Fun News!

Delicious Thanksgiving dinner and bonfire with desert last night; yummie leftovers for lunch, the season's first batch of chili on the stove, and a special treat today!

Thank you to to the T and D families, especially Mrs. D, for a great dinner and fun times on Thanksgiving. As with all good evenings over at the T house, it ended with a (mostly safe and controlled) bonfire. No marshmallows this time, though, because we had pumpkin cheesecake, pecan pie, apple crisp, and vanilla ice cream to munch on!

A special treat today! danceswithflowers, who sells upcycled clothing, jewelry, and home decor on Etsy, had featured my Fallen Leaves of Autumn Necklace in her Treasury: Magic on the Forest Floor. See the beautiful, unusual goodies here:
Thank you!

I hope all of your Black Friday dreams came true!

Did you go out on Black Friday and join the Mad Dash for Mega Deals? I was not so brave, but I would like to hear your shopping story! Leave a comment and tell me all about it.

Well, here I am with a proper title, background, and header (coordinating, of course - thank you shabbyblogs.com). Nothing left to do but start blogging! And I have been putting that off because I am good at procrastination. And also because I am not so familiar with this blogworld with all of these blogwords, so I am just going to bluff my way through it and figure it out as I go. I imagine it will be frustrating at times and will require a lot of chocolate, coffee, and cheese-flavored popcorn to get through, but I am up to the challenge.

I love beads, baubles, jewels, and small shiny objects, crafting, reading, shopping, movies and television shows, my husband, family, friends, and my cutie little kitten, the above mentioned snacks, coffee (which bears repeating), shopping local, and exploring my new town of Greenville, North Carolina. So I guess all of that is what this blog will be about.

I have a store on Etsy (unashamed plug coming up…  http://LizabethDezigns.etsy.com ) so I will be running some deals and specials and generally talking about my great jewelry and accessories here, too!

Yay! I am so glad to be here on blogspot.com. Thank you for visiting me here.
