Shop Smart

Hey, before you shop 'til you drop, don't forget my shopping portal! All of your favorite stores can be accessed through the convenience of my site and my family will benefit from everything you purchase! See my SHOP WITH KJ website for more information and links. Or click on the SANTA in my top right sidebar. Be sure to bookmark the link! :-D

Also, CRATE & BARREL has an online outlet. The photos in this post represent the bargains being featured right now on their website. Click HERE.

UPDATE: The move is complete! Yes! Now, I take on the task of unpacking and nesting. This home is so full of light. It's so cheerful! I will be visiting y'all in the next few days.

I am not AWOL. I have actually made a huge move from one home to another. Today is our last official day at the old address. We are scrambling to get the garage cleared out and a kitchen (that has suffered the ravages of moving) cleaned. I have phoned Mary Poppins several times and she is NOT returning my calls. So, it looks as if I will be getting up close and personal with a nasty looking kitchen...on my own. As you can imagine, I would rather be nesting my new, sweet little abode.

I am currently borrowing internet from the surrounding homes. Tonight I will be changing servers and setting up my new email account. So, don't worry if an email is returned. I can't wait to get back to my blog visits and comments!

Thanks for your patience! And, don't forget to check out the "What's on Page 56?" challenge just one post down.

What's on page 56?


  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note to your wall.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
