Theresa of Ordinary Lovely and Micaela from California to Korea (and back again) are running a blog hop called See Me Homeschool. (You can read my interview for Micaela's How I Homeschool series here.)
You can get an in-depth look into the chaos that is St. Jude's School for Kids Who Want To Read Good and Do Other Things Good Too on Monday, February 23rd.
That's Monday, Monday, better check back on Monday...
Dang song stuck in my head.
There are lots of other (better) homeschooling bloggers participating so be sure to check out their homeschools too. Here is the blog hop schedule.
If YOU have a homeschool and want to participate, there's a link-up and an Instagram hashtag (#seemehomeschool).
3. This is a short video of actress Frances McDormand saying wise things about aging and womanhood.
I've been having far too much fun over at the Twice website. Technically, it's Like Twice. Twice is another one of those online secondhand stores, but with higher end clothing and...
wait for it...
Actual Measurements of the Actual Items for sale!
Do you realize what this means?
It means a much higher chance of getting something that actually fits!
Not only that, but the Twice people include the "fit" in the description.
The women in this house wear Julie fit pants from LOFT. Over at Twice, if the tag says "Julie," they let the web readers know that detail!
They also have good prices and a great return policy. They'll give me a little bonus if you sign up through my link and they'll give YOU a $10 credit!
5. RobinsOwn Soap Shoppe on Etsy.
Robin makes soap by hand in her home using goat's milk and a cold process method that I do not understand.
I do understand that the soap is beautiful to see, smell, and touch.
|Brown Sugar Soap|
We currently have a lovely sweet wine heart-shaped soap in the powder room. Who knew that wine scented soap would smell so delicate and clean?
I got wee rashy Polly the Simply Goat's Milk shown above.
|Pumpkin Bier, or as I think of it, Cinnamon Goodness|
I don't have a picture of them, but for Christmas I gave some people Robin's Madonna and Child shaped Cherry Almond soaps.
I'm saving this one for summer. It's called Icky Yucky Hands. It's so pretty, it looks like it would taste good.
Robin is a single mom who runs her Soap Shoppe out of her own home. She doesn't have a car, so she walks to the post office to deliver her handmade products every Friday.
I don't know Robin and she has no idea who I am, but I do know her soaps and recommend them to everyone I know. I call her "my soap lady."
6. A GIVEAWAY!
I am going to give one of you LUCKY readers this gorgeous bar of Blackberry Sage Dragon soap AND the teal soap dish pictured here.
Just hop over to Robin's Shop then come back and tell me what you think looks good in my comment box. I will choose a winner from the commenters so please make sure your contact info is accessible.
The winner will be chosen sometime in the next week when I get around to it. Probably by Wednesday because I'm planning a WWRW post for that day.
Patrick just stuck his head over my shoulder and said, "What are you blogging about? Soap! I love her soap!"
I did not do a What We're Reading Wednesday post this week, but the February link-up lasts all month. Next month's link up will be on March 4th.
Linking up with Kelly for 7QT Friday! Friday! Gotta Get Down on Friday!
