Hot damn, Spring has sprung! Hola my lovelies, itís time for another round of Shopping with Snappy. In honor of the official arrival of the Spring season, Iíve got several springy fun finds for you to ogle and possibly buy. Step into my office and see if thereís anything you like. Whip out your wallets and letís shop!

Todayís first find is a gorgeous little doodad for your cabinets and/or drawers. Spice up your dťcor with fun, spring-like colors with these Bubbled Glass Knobs from Anthropologie. These fun knobs are available in clear, mint, olive and pink.
$8.00 each

Now I know this next item will be a hit with the working ladiesÖ
You just came home from work and itís time for a glass of swill. How much swill do you need today? Let this wonderful wine glass inform those around you just how your day went! The Personalized Wine Glass available through Etsy should be your next present to yourself ?
$12.00

Next up weíll get into some D.I.Y. work thatís for the birds. No, not for the birds like that! I mean itís literally something for the birds! No need to buy a bird feeder if you wanna just make your own. While itís not a new craft, itís a fun one and super easy to personalize. For directions go here:

(You can get rebar really cheaply at HD (http://tinyurl.com/ckrfg76) and Loweís (http://tinyurl.com/cjzfhe8) and Ikeaís got cheap, brightly colored plant pots http://tinyurl.com/c83kqs6)

Shall we go back to spiffing up our surroundings? Indeed! What Iíve got for you next could satisfy your need for pattern on your walls without having to go the wallpaper route. I bring you the Patterned Paint Roller Ė ta da! Pictured below is the Symphony Scrolls pattern. (Check out the full Etsy store of NotWallpaper to see other available patterns) So what is this thing, you ask? Itís basically a stamper (of sorts) attached to a paint roller that allows you to easily (so they say!) get a pattern on your walls, furniture or floors. Iím wondering if spacing and keeping a straight line could end up being a problem. But still a nifty idea. Whaddya think?
$22.50

Is it time to nosh yet? What ever will we munch with our wine in those wonderful personalized glasses? I say we go for tasty and simple. Baked Fontina, people. Baked Fontina. The directions were adapted from Ina Garten and it sounds delightful. Check out this simple recipe and then tell me you didnít drool at least a little bit at the thought.

Itís time to talk squirrel. DonaT, you just get a gun or a flamethrower and blast the fuzzy bastards. Everyone else, check out the Big Head Squirrel Feeder. The ad copy for this product pretty much says it all:
*Humiliate and feed squirrels at the same time
*Makes feasting squirrels look goofy
*Takes arrogant squirrels down a peg
$15.00

Todayís final find is a neat invention that has not yet hit the market, but could be a success if/when it ever does. The Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera is exactly what it sounds like. Itís a ball you toss into the air and the 36 cameras inside take a panoramic picture once the ball hits the highest point of its flight and reaches that quick moment of near stillness before falling back to the ground. The ball then connects to your computer and you transfer the image there. You can spin around in the photo and see all aspects of the panoramic pic you just took. If you have a look at the quick video on the inventorís website, you can see that the result is kinda like a Google Earth photo. Pretty neat!

love the glass knobs. I used all different colored glass knobs on my kitchen cabinets but there are more colors and they are brighter. these knobs are classier and prettier but too expensive to use on kitchen cabs because so many are needed. Still, I may order some for other uses. Thanks, snappy!

Very nice, Snappy. I really like the knobs, too. And there are def days where the wine glass would be appropriate.
