Elizabeth Shares

I am a sponge. I want to learn more about the business end of things, as I develop my ever evolving style. Last spring in Warrenton, I met Elizabeth. She was wearing an incredibly cute top. Hang on. Let me see if I can find a picture of her (and it).

Second from the right. Blond with great shirt. Did I lie? And isn't she the tall one?

Anywho, she has a blog. The Adventures of Elizabeth. I like it. For sure. But, I am here today, to tell you about a second blog that she writes. It is right up my alley in regard to that whole sponge thing. Talk about a mentor. She is willing and able. She shares her experiences and lessons learned. She is free with her information.

Elizabeth has a motto. It is to share. I wanted to keep her a secret. But, truth be known, I think every single one of us who are business minded will appreciate what she has to say. So, this is me, sharing. Without further adieu, check out Elizabeth House Shop Talk. You can thank me later.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I love her blog but didn't know about the shop talk blog. I'm going to check it out right now. Jan

  2. I read her second blog last year cover to cover...end to end. She shares great information and does it in a way even I can understand.
    She's a jewel!

  3. Thanks for sharing these links. And yes, great top :)!

  4. Thank you now...and thank you later! :)

  5. I've been a follower of both of Elizabeth's blogs for a long time....enjoy her to the Nth degree! She's a keeper!


  6. Oh Mindy,

    You are too funny and too generous :-) I just got your note and what a treat you are. First, I forgot about that top, and now I want to go dig it out, I haven't seen it for a good in the hell does one lose a top past the age of six? Second, thank you so much for sharing "me." I laughed when I read your note to me. What nice things to read from your readers. I feel extremely blessed with this blogging community of wonderful women. What a great group to be a part of.

    Thanks again for your generous spirit,

  7. Yep, I am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth's, too. I love Shop Talk also.
    She has been the single biggest influence and inspiration as far as who I'd like to pattern myself after. I just think she's marvelous. She's *my* Martha Stewart. Heck, she's WAY better than Martha in my book! :-)


  8. Hi Mindy ~ thanks for sharing the links..I'm heading over to check her out! And love the top!


  9. Hi Mindy,
    You have been very busy my dear...I love your shelves and chair in place of your tree. The shape of that little chair is so cute.
    Robelyn's design on that Hog bag is really pretty, I see why you fell in love with it, and thanks to you, we now know how to pronounce her name.
    Now I am off to check out the new blog. Have a great weekend!

  10. Okay - I am cross-eyed and in info over-load due to the fact I was up all night long reading cute shirt's blogs. I've read shop talk about... 5 times end to end - have filled up a notebook and now I'm knee deep in her other blog. LOLOLOL Do you hear my wheels turning? Smell the burn of redneck thoughts?

    I need more coffee...
    And that top. LOLOL

    Thank you for sharing!!! I'll share my Barbies with you now.

  11. I told y'all the top was great, didn't I? Now, you trust my judgement, don't ya? And her blog? I'm glad some of you knew her and now more of you do. After all, if the lady sits down and encourages us to grab wine, she is opening up. She gives her time and her ideas. And yes, if I were that tall, I'd want the top for me. But, she rocks in it. Now, if only she can find it! Happy Day! ~Mindy

  12. Thanks for sharing. I'm going over to check her out.

  13. Love that you shared. Interesting blog, good concept. Caught my interest. I will definitely spread the word about Elizabeth, but your blog as well.
    Keep the faith,

  14. Mindy,
    Thanks for reminding me of Elizabeth's blog. I would just LOVE to really be able to share and be enlightened with other shop owners.
    BTW I am ALWAYS enlightened by You!


I smile when I see each new comment. Ideas, acknowledgements, sharing. Your words are always appreciated. Thank you!
