Raindrops on roses & whiskers on kittens

Now you're singing along too, aren't you... I thought the post could use some background music.  I have been wandering around a few of my favorite Indy shops and I thought to myself, "Self, why not share these fabulous things with the world"... and then I replied, "Why Self, that is a glorious idea.  Thank you."  So here you have it, let's go shopping this fine Saturday morning - I'll even throw in a treat at the end.

This is "Yarnvelope" - as she says, "Don't just write... write on art"
Natalie also has the most amazing yarn shop as well.
I love collecting journals and Handcrafted Books by Michelle has such an amazing collection!
Project bag and cute fiber items are abound over at Slipped Stitch Studios.
Ruth has some crazy mad skills - check out all her beautiful patterns at Rock + Purl
Yarn, stitch markers, buttons and more - all of these can be found at JL Yarnworks
Handmade pottery like you've never seen before - you just have to visit LennyMud
Man can this girl rock your world - check out Butterfly Bush Yarns and see Ruth's creations
Let your freak flag fly with something from Geekiana - trust me, it is a bit fantastic!
So those are the places that I've been this morning and then I read something that my friend Ruth wrote which prompted me to share with all of you... and as promised, here is a little treat.  How would you like to take $5 off your next yarn purchase of $25 or more?  Yeah, I thought so -  and thankfully, so did Doodlebug Yarn.  We have partnered to bring you this wonderful discount so hop on over and take a look at all the fabulous items they have in stock.

Just use the code "Peppermint" and you'll receive a $5 discount on your qualifying purchase
Support "local" artisans because without art, life would be pretty drab indeed.
