Jesse Janes ... Live from Portland Maine, this esty.com store has oodles of pendants made from Scrabble tiles! Yay for up-cycling, and yay again for such unique gift ideas! They are a steal at the individual prices she charges, and it's like highway robbery if you go for a "baker's dozen" type purchase discount.
The tile pendant in the photo below is one I chose for me :) My beloved San Francisco bay area map on a pendant! I also purchased a 2nd pendant that is not shown, for my best friend's birthday, which happens to be today... yep, it's going to be late arriving to her.
And the yarny goodness? Another etsy.com store - Ewe Spin Me. I was probably her last order before she left for vacation so, there are no items listed on her store today. But, keep this URL handy! You won't be sorry you did!
Ewe Spin Me's self striping yarn will probably remind you of Zauberball, but oh I like this better, me thinks :) Below is Line Dance Worsted 100 Peruvian Highland Wool - the label says it's "approximately 4-ply fingering". Either way I had planned on making me socks with it.
And thank you, Rachel, for the Oolong Tea! You can also find her on Ravelry as EweSpinMe.
