I'm sorry it's been so long between posts! I actually tried to do a post mid-week last week but couldn't get blogger to let me load some of my pics. Actually I did the whole post, published it, and blogger only chose to publish 1/2 of the post and I lost the rest of it. So that kind of bummed me out for a while. Because of that, and because loading lots of pictures is easier to do with slide shows than with blogger, I am doing this post with two slide shows. That being said, here's what's been going on here!
Not much! But I do have a few pics of flowers blooming in my yard these days. I truly believe my Daddy has been tending my garden, and everything (but mostly things he gave me or that I know he loved) has been doing so very well! (I love you, Daddy!)
Here is the slide show of flower pics . . .
I have also been shopping, online and at yard sales and estate sales, for more things for my shop. You may have noticed my Etsy shop is no longer on my side bar. That is because I am working on re-vamping it and trying to get new things listed, and it's easier if I don't have it open at the time.
Through my online shopping I have bought a number of postcards, mostly Christmas and New Years, and all from between 1900 and the early 1920's. If you remember, the ones I had before sold VERY well at the craft show, so now I have more to sell. I have also bought a great vintage linen lot with some of the most gorgeous embroidery I have EVER seen! There are even a couple of pieces that may never make it to a sale, but into my collection instead!
And at yard and estate sales, I have bought an old painting, some books, magazines and the best deal of the day, a brand new, in the box Martha Stewart 'Favor Packaging Kit' which has 25 tins that are to be used for wedding/party favors. I am going to decorate the tins and fill them with organic lavender to sell.
Here are the pics of vintage things that will soon make their way either into my Etsy shop or to the next Georgia Farmgirls (GAFG) 'Flea in the Field' flea market sale . . .
We are having our 2nd GAFG craft night this Thursday and I will be teaching a class on making a pincushion similar to this one . . .
