Entries in holidays (49)
Well, if you have been curious as to where I have been and what I have been up to, here it is. Starting Wednesday, Nov 1, every item in my shop is 20% off. Everything. The entire month. I sent out a bazillion postcards, (front and back shown above) and had so much fun designing them. I think that is what I truly enjoy about my little Internet store. The designing, packaging, layouts. It is all very enjoyable. (which is a damn good thing, cause I really don't make very much!) Anyway.. here are a few pics of new items, but plenty more abound.. peeks will be posted every now again, and I'll always post new items here before I put them in my shop. Because most everything is vintage or antique, quantities are limited and so is my time. I am still raising a family through all this. Well, trying anyways..
I've had so much fun playing with some images I found in an 1890 Medical Reference Book. I picked up the book at a town wide yard sale this past weekend. Some of the thoughts and cures are unbelievable! (and VERY spooky!) This delightful creepy dude is for sale in my shop.. I know, I know, Halloween is still a month and a half away, but with much persuasion from my eight year old, I have started to decorate the house. Below, my spooky man hangs from a black, scraggy tree on my kitchen counter (sans vintage seam binding). Have a spook-tacular-day!
ughh. that was just not right.
A new, autumn inspired add to my SHOP. A roll of 15 pages of antique sheet music and paper lace, tied with vintage buttons! The sheets are so large I had to roll them for easier shipping. Other 'new' antique items are also in the works. I have aquired some FABULOUS papers (including wallpapers), buttons, and trims but I just need more time! If I could stretch naptimes and my waking hours it would be great, but a mother of three active children needs to sleep too. Alas, laundry and meals also need to get done. :( My time to play is limited so I must go! Enjoy!
