Favourite Things

Hello, everyone! I'm trying a new format today in the hopes that we can socialize as a group a bit more. I'll post 5 questions with a common theme (all revolving around favorites, of course) and you guys can answer them in the comments section. Sound like a plan? I'll get us started.

The theme? General Internet Faves

1. What's your favorite blog? (And nah, this one doesn't count *wink*)
2. If you've made one, would you mind sharing your favorite online purchase from the past 3 months?
3. What's your favorite site for window shopping?
4. What's your favorite site for real shopping?
5. What's your favorite site for time-wasting?

I can't wait to hear your answers! If you have a theme suggestion for next week, add it to your comment! (Oh, and if you're reading this later in the week, don't let it stop you from commenting--I for one, always come back and check the posts a few times throughout the week.)
Have a fun day, everyone! --Katie :D


  1. 1. ashleyannphotography.com/blog/ (she's one talented and inspirational woman!)
    2. Considering it's the only thing I've purchased lately, a nursing cover from babysteals.com--ha!
    3. anthropologie.com
    4. etsy.com
    5. I don't even know how to answer this one. I spend tons of time making Treasuries, but I don't consider it a waste!

  2. First off, I love your idea, Katie!
    Now, let's see ...
    1. http://sandoproductions.blogspot.com (for today anyway)
    2. Have to list 4, because I love them all equally. And guess what? They're all from EPErs! In the order of purchase:
    3. llbean.com
    4. etsy.com
    5. I could spend all day shooting little soft darts at cartoon sheep, but I've lost my bookmark. Anybody know that url? On 2nd thought, better not tell me or I'll be a 'gonner' again. ;)
    xoxo Mollie

  10. This is AWESOME!! OK>>>>

    1. Blog....I don't read any on a regular basis, but I love "This Artist's Life" because she focuses on essentials of being and maintaining life as a full time art person:
    I also love Robert Genn's bi-weekly letters:

    2. Wow! OK....I'm gonna take a page out of Mollie's book and list a couple, not in any order:
    a. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=25266553
    b. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=26755296
    c. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=27314626
    d. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=29159803

    3. Besides Etsy.....? It would be:
    I have spent DAYS (not consecutively....) on this sight....just drooling over the art...

    4. ETSY and ETSY and ETSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I LOVE supporting the Artists, Crafts-people and Vintage sellers from the Universe that supports me...the circular karma thing!

    5. Besides ETSY>>>?!?! I don't have ANY more time once I'm off of here! In fact, most of the time I never even make it over to check my emails! But I do like FaceBook to see what everyone else is up to when they are not over in Etsyland!

    THANK YOU Katie!! This was fun and I look forward to seeing other's fav's! I'm already enamored and lovin' Kim's Antique website, and that Sheep game thing.....sheeeeeeesh!! Now THERE is a Time Waster!! Good luck staying away from that one Mollie! :)


  11. What a great idea! It's so much fun to read everyone's responses.

    1)I have so many favorites blogs but the one I can't miss is Modish
    I also love Decor8

    2)Most of my online purchases lately are supplies. So I guess my favorite purchase is always the one I need the most!

    3)Favorite window shopping is anthropologie

    4)Favorite real shopping is Etsy

    5)Favorite time-wasting sites are Craftgawker.com
    as well as any of the many blogs I find.

  12. I <3 this idea!

    1) Right now it's melissabxoxo.blogspot.com. It's very endearing, personable, and inspiring.

    2) I just went through a huge buying spree of gemstones and vintage supplies. It's way better than a candy store!

    3) Gotta agree with the group and say Anthropologie. I want everything they have.

    4) Etsy for sure. I always look for something on Etsy first. I love supporting handmade!

    5) I go in phases. Right now it's probably amazon.com. I usually waste time playing Mahjong on my computer!

  13. Great Idea!

    My favorite blog:

    My favorite purchase is in the supply category...the porcelain buttons I've been using in my creations.

    Window shopping...has to be pottery barn.

    Real Shopping...hmmm... J.Jill, Barnes&Noble, or Costco (LOL)

    Time Wasting...Etsy, various blogs

  14. Fun!
