Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!! MissMaisy's Treasury full of HOSTies (Helping Others Street Team members) creations made it to the front page on Etsy today! This is quite an achievement as not every treasury makes it to the front page. Here is MissMaisy's treasury.

Not all HOST members can be featured in any one treasury as there are alot of us. MissMaisy did a great job on this treasury, it is very pretty.

Thanks go out to all the HOST members for their constant support and best wishes for a happy holiday season!

More new Items LIsted Today

Good evening all, I have had a busy day sleeping most of it away! Here are a few items I had already photographed so I listed them today. Just click on the picture to go to the listing.
You can always check out My Etsy Shop for more vintage buttons too.

I have a near limitless supply of buttons and will be listing them off and on until they are all gone!

Oh, and we had 7 or 8 inches of snow fall today!

We've Got Snow!

Well, it snowed! It looks like we'll get more tomorrow too and more later this week...I think this is the longest snow has been on the ground here before Christmas since I can remember.

Here are some pics from my house:

picture from my deck showing the rail and trees

The thermostat on the top of our Deck fence, note it says 60+ degrees!
Note to self: replace that!

The hedge and trees out front.

These were taken while it was lightly snowing, we ended up with a little more snow and still have it! Such a dork, but I love snow, especially unspoiled, not walked in snow!

Will post more photos when/if it snows again.

Searching...and Snow?

In between doctor appointments today, I was out searching for new (vintage) buttons. Decided tomorrow would be a better day, estate sales and auctions and all start going then. I still have quite a lot to list, but I'm not inspired by my selection so I put a moratorium on listing until I find more to inspire me. That brings me to my topic of SNOW!

My particular location in the Pacific Northwest is not especially prone to alot of snow, nor is it at all usual for us to receive snow before the new year. Well, it looks like it's all about to change! Snow is in the forcast for this weekend and early next week. Yeah for us! Ok, I know you experienced snow folks are thinking what is up with her? Well, I LOVE snow! I have always loved snow and rarely get it at my house. I love when everything is twinkly and shiny and winter-looking. It makes me feel like a kid again. I also secretely hope we loose power for awhile! That way we can have family fun without the normal interruptions of TV, video games, and so forth. I would love to play Scrabble by the fire and some candle light.

If it does snow, I will post some pics so you all can laugh at the paltry inch or so that we do get :)

Take care and snowy dreams,


I;m still alive...

Sorry folks, been busy crashed out on the couch. Wore myself out or something and have had to rest for a week or two. Will work on my Etsy shop and blog in the next couple of days.

I am always looking for vintage buttons. I am obsessed. If you know of any good sources, let me know so I can check them out.

Thanks! Have a good one!

It sure has been awhile, Black Friday and such

Wow, it's amazing how fast time goes by when you are out of commission and sleeping most of the time! Now I'm partly back but still not up to my usual self. Fibromyalgia makes recovering that much more difficult.

So, I did sell a couple of items over the ''Black Friday' weekend. Not like I had expected though. I spent more time changing all of my verbiage that it wasn't even worthwhile to participate in the 'sale'. I just hope it brings more business... The sad thing about this sale is that I tried to shop for family presents and every thing that I wanted to buy was at a shop that was NOT having a sale!? What's up with that? I felt cheated, hey, I spent all that time to participate and I couldn't find anyone to buy from that had done the same. Almost, but not quite, wish I had gone out into the madness! Actually this was the first year I didn't go out into the human cattle call of Black Friday, in nearly 12 years! What a relief it was to sit at home, cozy and warm and not elbowed or otherwise trampled (poor Walmart workers). At the same time I was jonesing for a shopping coo and none was to be found :( Well, I do have to admit I did not try overly hard to find one, being half asleep for several days does that to you! But still, I thought Etsy would have done a better job of advertising...

Now off to try to clean up, a few minutes at a time as to not wear myself out...pacing, a term I am trying to become familiar with.

Happy non-commercial shopping!
