Creating Some Fun At Vintage French Hen


Time seems to fly by these days as I prepare for the holidays, babysit my grandchildren and try to run an on-line business!

Etsy is fun for me, a little slow going, but I am enjoying it. I think the hardest part is the photographs and detailing. At least to me it's the most time consuming part of it all.

I have also started to sell some of my items in a local shop here in my hometown, and I'm also creating more items to sell over the holidays for different upcoming hometown events.

So life has been busy but very, very fulfilling!

Julie Mae is growing like a weed...

And Raymond is so stinkin' precious!

So here are a few projects I've been working on....

A tee-pee for Jules,

Angel wings made from vintage lace to sell on Etsy,

Dream catchers,

Vintage clothing,


A little slip dyeing,

And lots of thrifting!

My sister-in-law Debbie gave my husband and I the beautiful chair pictured above. It belonged to her mother, Carmella. 
I adore this chair and will cherish it forever!

Oh, and I got a new puppy! 

 Meet Buster.
He's Chihuahua and Jack Russell? We love him. He's a hand-full, but we love him.

Thank you so much for stopping by. And if you have a chance, check out my Etsy! I will be posting more items next week for sale, but this weekend I'm on babysitting duty.
