Help mom create a little work space. Maybe it’s elaborate or just organizing and prettying up a desk. Edie wrote about her workroom.  This room is ahead of her time.

Tomorrow is the last day to get $640 worth of home related ebooks for $29.97.

The download process is quite simple, here’s a screen shot of what it looks like:

I clicked on the one that’s squared in, 28 Days to Hope for your Home and it downloaded in about 1.5 seconds. Super fast. PLUS, if there are ebooks here you don’t need, you can load them on a flash drive and give them to Mom as a gift, as long as you delete them from your computer after you load them.

My sister’s coming in town tonight and I’m so excited. What do you have going on this weekend?

  1. I had no idea my home was missing a terrarium (or that that’s what those things are even called) until now. The fairy garden one is fantastic. Wish I could ship one across the country to my mom!

    Thanks for the link! :)

    A reading weekend away with my BFF!

  3. Lot’s and lot’s of cleaning and re-organizing! My sister moved out of our (my boyfriends’ and my) 2 bedroom apartment last weekend which means we’ve gained some space back, and are turning the second bedroom into and office now. So much to do! But the weather has been beautiful lately so I hope we spend some time outside of the apartment too:) Have a great weekend, thanks for sharing the links, I love terrariums!

  4. I downloaded the ebook bundle and have never been so excited! I’m walking around holding my ipad with my 97 new little books that I CAN NOT wait to dive into! So so so excited about this! There were several that I wanted to buy that were included in the bundle. What a deal!!!! Thanks for sharing! I want one of the reading weekends away!!!

  5. Hopefully, we are going to be planting our small veggie garden this weekend. First time gardeners. Absolutely no clue what we’re doing.
    Love the links!

  6. We started a fairy garden last summer for my little girl…oh my goodness! Hours of fun for me…um, her…we had to transplant it and move it inside for the winter, lest the fairies freeze. I’m a little scared to see how big the garden fairy’s home is going to get this summer…

  7. Um, that ‘Dear House’ image is ridonkulous!!! I can just feel that breeze blowing thru the house! :-)

  8. I love the fairy house! So cute!!
