I've been trying to get our Etsy Shop up and running for years, and I've finally done it. It's slim pickings right now, and slowly but surely it will start filling up with our original photography, crafts, and vintage finds.
My mother has been cleaning out her garage, so right now I have some of her vintage sugar bowl and creamer collection for sale and I will be adding more as days go by.
You can also see our Shop Of Cool Stuff in the right hand side bar of this blog.
We have a lot of interesting critters to look at out our back windows. This just happened earlier today. All I wanted was a picture of the egret and turtles on the log, and then all this action happened and I had to keep shooting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. (If you look closely, I swear the egret steps right on top of that first turtle on the left. ☺)
Photos were taken with my Canon DSLR Rebel and animated in photoshop. (I sure hope this works when I click "publish". You can click the image to see a larger view. Let me know if you can't see the animation.)
This fall, my Dad asked me what I wanted him to cut out for me. I drew up some templates, and told him how many of each piece to cut out. I had a plan in my head, but I guess people don't always get my genius. When it came time to put them together, I had to walk him through it.
I think they are mighty cute, and my husband and I just finished painting them this past weekend.
Also, something I thought was fun are the google doodles from the last few days. Do you know what the google doodle is? I assume most people know, but really I shouldn't assume.
If you go to the google search page during the holidays, they have special little holiday doodles in place of the GOOGLE name. This week it has been cute little houses and figures that you can cut out and glue together.
Here they all are in one place for you to print out and glue together. Just click each of the images and you can either print them directly, or save them and print them later. Then, I guess it's pretty self explanatory. Just cut them along the edges and fold along the dotted lines, and then glue the tabs.
If you'll notice, they all spell out the word, GOOGLE, stylistically. Very cute.
And here are some little figures that go along with it.
I don't have a picture of the figures cut out, but here are the little buildings glued together and lined up to spell GOOGLE. Great fun for big and little kids. ;)
I am wishing you a very Merry Christmas, and a Healthy, Happy, and Peaceful New Year.
It's one of my favorites times of the year! Happy October! Happy Halloween month! It's time for things to cool down and for the leaves to start turning colors.
If you live on the East Coast you are well aware of Hurricane Joaquin, and all the spaghetti monster models showing it's possible path. Well, it now looks like he's going to miss us completely, which is great. But, here in Virginia, we are still getting lots and lots and lots of rain, with some areas already flooding, with more to come.
Alas, everything is pretty much canceled this weekend; all the normal Farmer's Markets, Fall Festivals, Art Festivals, everything. It feels like a good excuse to have a nice, quiet weekend with nowhere to go and nothing to do. I'll take it!
Haunted House built and decorated by my husband, because if I did it the building would surely collapse. ha. Okay, I did make that fabulous walkway. ☺
My talented sister made the very precious double sided quilt (Halloween on one side, Fall on the other).
