WHERE is our summer?!?!?!?

It’s been raining for almost a week now.  sigh.  I really COUNT ON being able to get a lot of furniture painted outside this time of year, to hold me over for the long, wet winter when I can’t paint outside.  Feels like we had a week of summer and it’s FALL already.  But I guess this isn’t as bad as the crazy heat wave so much of the res of the country in enduring right now.  SO, since I can’t work on my painting projects, I’ve been working on listing new stuff in my etsy shop:

A very shabby chic pair of vintage cast plaster cherubs.

Vintage soup tureen WITH the plate and ladle!!  (almost NEVER find them with the ladles!)

A couple of different sets of three vintage apothecary jars.


 Bentwood canisters with vintage postcard labels. 

Two different tea light birds with nest in a jar.


 Trio of vintage pretty bottles.

 Vintage wood bowl with five handstitched vintage quilt hearts.

Two different sea glass wreaths.


Pair of vintage clear glass vases.


My New Year’s Resolution = $AVING$ for YOU on my e-books!

I know!  Took me long enough to decide on my New Years resolution!  I just wanted to be SURE that it was something that  I would REALLY do.   I decided I want to be even MORE encouraging to those who are still avoiding tackling some trash to treasure projects. 

I’ll continue to post on the blog as I always have.  But I’m realizing that now that we no longer have our store, we don’t ‘as steadily’ have projects to post.  To that end, I have decided to PERMANENTLY lower the prices on all my BIG e-books in my etsy shop. 

Books that were originally priced as high as $29.95 will, hereafter, be priced no higher than $10.00!  AND to get things rolling I’m having a special ‘count down sale’ on the three ‘just reduced’ e-books:

Second Hand Style

Frugal Beach Cottage Decor

Outdated / Updated

One copy of each of those books has been listed at $1.00 each.  One of each listed at $2.00, and $3.00 and so on up to the final regular price of $10.00.  The sooner you buy, the MORE you can save.
