Time for Elderberry syrup or Elderberry Tincture

Since everywhere I turn I hear people are sick, I thought this is the perfect time to spread the word about Elderberries (and flowers)

I always have a batch of Elderberry Tincture or Syrup on hands. Their antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial properties are just amazing.
I do have some information on the Herbal ABC page, if you like to read on...

Thanks to Local Green Stores!

When I came home from running my morning errands, I had to work an hour or so (my own set rule, I work from home usually in the evenings) for my 'paying' job and then I treated myself to some Cake and Tea:
We have a green grocery store here in town (Columbus, IN): Double Oak Farm where I get most of our veggies, fruit and eggs and meat and some other good stuff (too much to list) - and since today also pasta! :)
Lori, the owner was the first one to sell my Herbal Blends in a store - in her store. That was basically the beginning of Treehouse Herbs. Well, here's a big Thank You!!! to Lori.
For a while now she's working together with Ashleigh, who owns a bakery: Ashleighs Boulangerie. I'm so glad that both of them sell such good things.
I'm known for loving sweet things. I always have to buy something baked, when I'm at the store... today it was the Coffe Cake (again ;)) It is soooooooo good. I just love it. It's my treat every Wednesday, when I come home from the errands, I brew a cup of tea (today: 'Organic Good Morning Tea') from my store ;)) and Pecan Coffee Cake... no need to say more.

Organic Good Morning Tea was featured in an Etsy shopping guide :)

Wow, I had no idea. I was just wondering why I suddenly had so many views on my Organic Good Morning Tea...
Well, a little research showed that it was featured in this Etsy shopping guide.

Amazing what this can do to views and clicks. I like it :)

Promotional Frenzy Wednesday = Blog about a fellow store day

I joined the Promotional Frenzy Team on Etsy last weekend. There's a lot going on and it's organized. I really appreciate that the captain/leaders put so much thought and work into all the discussions and activities. Thanks so much!!!

Now this post is about a fellow Etsy Shop:
Her artwork is stunning! I love the stained glass hearts the most, I have to say. If you know someone stil searching for a Valentine's Day gift, you're at the right address. Just have a look:

But wait, she has more categories in her store: See for yourself!!!

Aren't those beautiful?!
Visit Galeaz Glass shop on Etsy! Have fun browsing :)

Finally - the new banner is done. I hope to be able to put it on my Business Homepage soon. It all takes so much time - I wish I would only need 3 hours of sleep at night ;)

Ice covered plants

What a storm! All that rain that turned into ice - just amazing what nature can do.

These pictures are taken standing on our front porch - I did not go further ;)
