A Warm Welcome!

I woke up this mornig to see how my etsy store was doing and I recieved a pleasant surprise. This sweet gal had sent me an email letting me know that I was featured on her blog. She spends time finding special things created by artists on the web. If you want something unique and special she has done all of the work for you. Take a look! WEBGEMS

Thanks so much!

For some reason I want to name every post that I make "Finally". Do you ever feel that way? Anyway here it is - My Etsy Shop. All of you that have wanted better access to my designs. This is for you. These are some of the more simple ones that I made for the show and are priced to sell! I will be listing new designs periodically. I have vowed to keep up with my blog and store. Although I love selling on ebay, etsy is so much easier and faster for me. Have fun and check it out! You can click on the image as well to ener my shop.

The Farm Chicks

A few weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of one the funnest antique show/flea market. Early in the spring my application was accepted and I was off to the sewing machine. I was busy for a few months making vintage style outfits to sale. It was such a fun experience. This was my first time doing something like this and I had a ball! I learned alot and met tons of wonderful people. Here are some pics of my space.

I had so much fun! I sold a little, passed out lots of cards , took a few special orders and made tons of new friends. There were so many talented people that were so inspiring! I have so many new ideas for next year. I would like to make this a tradition. If you like vintage things, shabby things and trash to treasure things I would recommend that you make this a GIRLS GETAWAY WEEKEND! Check out some of the talent on the site. The Farm Chicks.

Who's going to help me .....

eat the bread? I was feeling a little domesticated today. I love to bake and nothing tastes better than a piece of hot homeade bread slathered in butter. Ooooh, did I say that? No I'm not a healthnut. There are just some things that can't be replaced. I wish you could all smell the fresh baked bread fragrance wafting through the house. YUMMMMMMM!! These will soon be devoured by my husband and 4 kiddos. All that work for ... well... LOVE.
