    Shop Hop-Sunday Talk Shop 

    I have been slowly getting rid of some of my “too much stuff” or otherwise known as  “clutter.”  i have probably posted on my love of thrift stores and i know I have written about DIY  projects.  I still will shop at thrift stores and just finished making some paper beads and egg-shell beads for necklaces. Because both of these are big hobbies of mine,  And since my hobbies can overtake all the space in my humble dwelling, I have decided to sell some items I have an overabundance of .  I looked around on the internet and decided to give it a shot here:    http://www.webstore.com/index.php. I chose this auction marketplace since there is no fee to list and no fee upon a sale.  I set up a store front there and have listed about 40 things from all types of categories.  So from now on it is the one thing brought into the home and one thing put for sale to keep things out of their floor boxes it sits in to trip around.

    As far as the DIY and big art and craft drive I have unless it is outside where I have a huge amount of room; (I am working right now into making the mailbox resemble a school box before school starts this year.) I have run out of spots to display all my great ideas I get from books, blogs and Pinterest. I have even ran out of places to give extra away as gifts also, so I also signed up for Etsy, which I love anyway. This will give me an excuse to keep on my creative side. I am busy getting the shop on there ,up and running.  I am starting out with whittling away at extra craft supplies. I have had some craft stuff for at least a decade I thought to make and think someone else would surely put it to use. I also have craft books. that I have doubled up. I am putting those and sewing patterns on there. I never sew since I gave my machine away a long time back.

    I have not opened my Etsy shop yet. I have just been listing things and working on other factors of it. I have done 4 treasuries though. I am finding that fits my creativity mindset without the mess.  Here is a link to my school bus treasury if you want to drop by:  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MzUxMzUyNzl8MjcyNDgxOTYwNA/back-in-the-yellow-bus?index=1&atr_uid=

    Here is my store front on the auction site:   http://www.webstore.com/158342,user_id,158342,ac,shop  If you have anything to sell or get rid of it is way easy to do it on there.

    I am not going to spam you all, but I will give an update on the Etsy Shop and may do a Saturday or Sunday Shop Hop Update about my journey into the foray of making a small bit of mad money.

    MEMORIES through Vintage Plates with CURVES   wpphotochallenge

    Plates I got at a 2nd hand store. Some I am using and some are just for show, What memories these could give if they could talk. If only life’s curves were as smooth to the touch as their edges.

    Colors for month of- Navy. Thrift store find. 

    Friday I found this in my size in a thrift store. It was really cool bohemian style. What really excited me was it was made in the town I was born in- way up in Oregon. I found it in a thrift shop over 2,000 miles away. It is too hot to wear since it is wool.  But am looking forward to wearing it next year or selling it for more than the steal I got it for. This brand is very expensive to buy when new.

      Sorry if this may have posted more than once and you see it several times. It just was not showing up for me on my blog. Said it had been published and may have gone to other places, but I did publish 3 x and finally see it.
