Monday Marketplace #2 and a winner!

I think we got off to a great start last week for the first 
Monday Marketplace.
It was really fun looking through all the links to see all the great items.

If you're here for the first time, then let's go over the concept for this link up.
This is a linky party for Etsy and Online Shop sellers,
or if you've recently purchased something from an Etsy or Online Boutique.
 This is about showcasing items and the creative shops that are out here in blogland.

Here are a few items that caught my eye from last week.

A wonderful blue transferware bowl from our talented friend, 
Rosemary, from Villabarnes

Angie from Swede 13 has this fabulous mirror for sale

This Italian Porcelain Footed Bowl would look wonderful on my coffee table!

And I fell in love with this vintage straw hat from White Lilac Cottage

You may link up one or two items from your shop, please don't link up to just the store, but to individual items. Also, I'll give you enough space to list your blog name after the item description if you'd like, since it's not easy to put blog owner and shop together. I found myself trying to figure out what shop went with which blogger. And, you don't have to have a blog to link up, I'd just like that information available if possible. Then my next question would be, why don't you have a blog?

Monday Marketplace will be open all week, so be sure and check the entries several times this week, you have plenty of time to link up and browse. 

And one request please. If you are linking up to the Marketplace, I'm asking you to be a follower of Common Ground, and to grab the button for your sidebar. (upper right hand on the sidebar) Let's share the news. Thanks for making this new venue a success!

Such a great turnout for Nancy's Daily Dish Give Away, thanks so much for entering! And the winner is Nita Jo from Little Grey Gardens. Congratulations Nita Jo! Email me with your info and I'll forward it to Nancy.

I also have quite a few of the numbered brass tags left. I'm not selling these individually, but will be happy to incorporate them into a custom design necklace for you, to celebrate birthdates or anniversaries. If you don't see a number you need, let me know, I may be able to get one. Convo me on Etsy or email me with the subject as "Numbered TAG". 

So are you ready for some shopping fun?
