Follow Friday

11 Jun

Today I had my first opportunity to visit my town’s Farmer’s Market. It’s small but has some great stuff. I really hope it takes off and continues to grow. The deals at the remate are much better but the quality and the kinds of things you can get here makes it worth the trip. A friend of mine went recently and saw some police officers on Segways — awesome — but we didn’t see any. It’s been unseasonably cool and windy which made it very pleasant.

My very talented friend Liz who made me this awesome bag is selling all sorts of baby stuff there: bags, dresses, bibs, and nursery decor. If you’re local you need to check her out.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

Here are today’s Follow Friday picks from Twitter. Enjoy!

    So excited for farmer’s market season!!! Looks like you got a really good haul.

      Jessi, Tweet of the Week this week was a very close decision between the orcs and the baby hat. Glad you liked this as much as I did!
