    August 29, 2011 by barbara

    My heart skipped a beat when I discovered this cute little shop called House8810.  It has the most funky and cutest things.  I was browsing the shop for over an hour, taking my time slowly to look at each and every item in their shop.   Seeing those things brought a smile to my face, just like my other half when he is shopping for his car accessories like suv floor mats or rims.  Check out House8110 and you would know what I mean.
