Lots of Awesome News!

It has been an amazing week or so for The Odd Sparrow. I have some great news to share with you.

First of all, you may have noticed the icon to the right. That is just one more place you will find The Odd Sparrow online. Nashville Boutiques is a new little online shopping mall that will tickle you pink! You will find the most wonderful shops there and will enjoy every minute you spend there. Please join us at and shop your little heart out!
Secondly, I really must share some of the ads we have coming out. It has taken a very long time for me to get to the point where I can step out and advertise in national magazines. But the time has come, and I am jumping with joy at the possibilities! I will be included in the Nashville Boutiques debut ad, coming out July 26. This particular ad will be in the August/September issue of Cottages and Bungalows. Make sure you get your copy! For this ad, I have chosen the painted bee pillow. I hope you like it.

The next ad I have planned is one where I am again joining up with the owner of Nashville Boutiques and Shabby Lane Shops. This ad will be in the September issue of Romantic Homes. Be sure to check that one out as well. I have not yet decided what product to put into this ad. I think I will set up a poll. You can let me know what you think...just see the poll to the right of this post.

One other ad I have on the books is for a venue I am very excited about. I have placed an ad in the Christmas issue of Country Sampler magazine. I believe this issue will come out in September. Since this is the Christmas issue, I need to be getting the product I am advertising ready this summer, so it is ready to ship by then. As a result, I will be super busy for the next few months on that project alone. Guess I won't have too much time for trouble making...heehee! So what is the product? It is my Christmas scented pinecones. If you think you might be interested in purchasing these, contact me at early...I want you to be on the top of the list!

Well...time for me to get busy here. I will check back soon for your opinions on what to submit for the RH ad...and I will announce the results next week. Stay tuned!!!
