Psst, I've got as secret for you . . . A great way to make money on your blog without annoying the bejeezus out of your readers is through affiliate marketing!

My friend Tasha who blogs at Designer Trapped In A Lawyer's Body gave up her partnership at her law firm earlier this year to blog full-time. And now she's teaching other bloggers how to grow their income through affiliate marketing so that they too can earn real money by pursuing their passion for blogging! Her brand new ecourse, Affiliate Marketing For Bloggers, is seriously amazing!

I know it's only mid-July, but I'm already thinking fall here. Who says you can't sit on the beach and whip up some Velvet Pumpkins! Pass the sunscreen . . .

I see old ice cream machines at the thrift stores ALL THE TIME. Why not repurpose one into a cute rustic Repurposed Wooden Planter for fall?

Grab some bananas and head on over to the blog for my Banana Bread Recipe. It ain't like your mama used to make (if she was like mine and you used to have to sit there with a full glass of milk just to get the piece down your throat).

House Of Hawthornes
Skills
I have the uncanny ability to find cool vintage pieces for great prices and then weave them into my home decor without looking like I'm 90 years old and stuck in the 1950's. That's a useful skill, right?

Introduction
I write a blog called House of Hawthornes where I talk about thrift store shopping, gardening and a whole lot of vintage stuff. Blogging has rekindled a love of photography in me, although I rarely take photos of people and often take photos of my vintage finds (they tend to sit still and smile when I want them to).  

If you want to find out more about my blog, come on over for a visit and check it out.  Here are some great places to start:  
Bragging rights
Lover of vintage items and thrift store shopping, which automatically makes me a hoarder in training
