I was tagged (twice) this week

how exciting! Not only is this the first time I've been tagged, but it happened twice! In one week. 1st it was Callista here, when she so sweetly said, "I love your blog", then from Cam who wants to know like a MILLION things about me.

I think I'll start with Callista's request first...listing my 7 favorite blogs.
I'm so random, with the attention span of a fly...but these are blogs I read they are my "favorites for today".

Hot off the Presses

Just delivered to the shop today!

The Ultimate guide to places women CRAVE in Seattle, including 100 women you need to know! Sweet Petula/Me are (is?) featured on pages 226 & 227. And thanks to Katie at Urban Beast, page 252 (Good Clean Dog) as well. Thanks Katie!

Shop in the store this Friday or Saturday and with any purchase over $50, we will give you a copy of the book for FREE. That's right sister, FREE. The book is full of wonderful shops and services and highlights some of the most creative & interesting proprietors throughout the city.

You can also purchase here....well not here....up to the right a bit.

speaking of cute....

Is there anything better than puppies? I think not. My good pal Jean was telling me about this YouTube video of a man singing puppies to sleep. It is the cutest thing ever. Sadly, I do not know how to add video to my go here.
How sweet are these two? Sadly, I'm super allergic to cats. Can't even hang out with someone who has lots of them. But I do loves me some kittens.

Boyfriend Tom B....also super cute. He's older now, and thankfully, doesn't make me itch.

Vol 25.

New thing I'm coveting at the moment....Silhouette Art Prints. I found the artist Jessica, of Vol25 via her blog and quickly learned that we are practically neighbors. Well, sortof....she lives in Prosser, WA.

I simply LOVE these prints and plan on hanging them in my home somewhere. Somewhere prominent where the messages can be read repeatedly.

In the meantime, I am offering a pack of these postcards to one of you lucky Sweet Petula blog readers. Just add a comment to this post and a winner will be chosen September 15th.

you can see more of Jessica's work at Vol25

I arrived at the shop today to see that you have all ravaged the Sidewalk Sale tables. Since they were looking a bit bare, I decided to see what little goodies I could find in our back room. And lucky you! I found a box of frenchy stuff for the sidewalk sale.
See....I told you we would be adding items all week long. My disorganization is your gain.We are also waiting on a shipment of Honeydew panties for the Sidewalk Sale. Cross your fingers they come in tomorrow. Super cute and a super great deal. In the meantime, come see the Cavallini French Postcards, and Gift Tags. All 1/2 price.

Ahh...what perfect Seattle weather. Today is perfect for hiding under the covers all day long.

most unexpectedly sexy

I love love love clothing that is sexy without showing a lot of skin. What could be better than these high rise panties, by Twinsyndrome? To me they are very Wonderwoman meets sex kitten...quite frankly...exactly the kind girl I want to be. You can purchase them on Etsy, or go directly to Twinsyndrome's web site where designer, Danielle Friesen describes them as, " the product of a one night stand between a corset and a leotard". Yes please.
