my favorite things: olives
Day three of my favorite things! Yay! Some favorite things start out small, and they grow into some really big ideas. Who would have thought that a food I enjoy would turn into a name that I've embraced, and bigger still, the thought of being part of a great big family?
Today's favorite thing is...
Yes, olives. I think they are so very tasty. And quite lovely to share with friends. And to wear on one's fingers. And to read about. And to name one's blog and digital items after.
Being someone who loves olives as much as I do, it's wonderful to connect with others who have a similar passion. Recently I met Grace via email. She is the proprietor of Pink Olive, a New York boutique filled with the most whimsical and wonderful things. Can you imagine pink olives! I would so eat those! Truthfully, we haven't discussed our olive loves, but we have shared some of the other things that have in common...far away internet connections are so amazing, aren't they?
You can get a feel for the shop from these photos, and there are more on her site. If you're in the New York City area, perhaps you've been? I know that I would be making a point to visit if I get the chance to go to NY. But the good news is that you can still shop her lovely choices online.
You can enter to win this Petit Collage Garland, generously gifted by Grace! Go give Pink Olive a visit, then come back here and tell us what your favorite item was that you saw.
Leave a comment (make sure we have a way to get in touch with you), and you'll be entered to win. The giveaway is open to all US Residents, and will remain open until 10 CST on Sunday, the 27th. A random winner will be announced on Monday.
Good luck, and thanks Grace!
