Welcome to my new blog! This blog will serve many purposes. I have many loves and collect many things. I am a crafter, I sew, knit, crochet, felt, and scrapbook on occasion too. I sell some of my vintage collection on Etsy and plan on selling some handmade items there as well.
On this blog, I plan on featuring an Etsy shop every day or so of a fellow Etsian whose work I admire. If you haven't heard of Etsy, you have to check it out! It is a great place to buy all things handmade. This is not your run of the mill craft bazaar either. There are items from $1 to several hundred dollars. Fine art original paintings by new artists, photography, items for the home from potholders to furniture, original designs in clothing, scarves, amazing quantities of jewelry for all tastes and budgets, baby items, quilts, bags, music, needlework, edibles, really ANYTHING you can imagine that can be handmade/handcrafted can be found on Etsy. They also have many vintage vendors who sell items that are at least 20 years old, most items are much older. Vintage items range from buttons to clothes to housewares and more.
I also plan on sharing aspects of my 'addiction' to all things vintage, especially sewing items. Other interests in my life and last but not least, my beautiful cat Elle (pronounced Ellie) whom this blog and my Etsy name are named for.
Elle loves to lay on her back and show off her belly (or belle as I spell it here and on Etsy). She will tease you, make you think you can just walk up and pet that irresistible fluffy belly. Oh what a trickster she is! The minute you try to pet her belly, even when she is asleep, she will try to play! We love her and she is a continuous source of laughter in our house. Here is a pic of the sweet Elle Of course, not on her back, but in another favorite location:
That is all for now. Have a great evening!
