Well my Dear Friends I am ready for my Etsy shop on Saturday. I still have some projects to do, but I have some to open up with. I hope every one will check it out. I am so excited about it to me it is like Christmas morning, only in stead of getting gifts I am selling gifts.  Now that does sound kind of funny,,,,,,  selling gifts well they will be a gift for some one at one point in time. I am going to put a few photos on so all of you can see what I have been up too. So here we go.............

This is my mosaic candy dish or cotton balls little soaps or  what ever some one wants to do with it. The colors are a pretty purple flower with some yellow. Sorry some will be kind of blurry I really need a new camera.

I love this,,,,, this is a little trinket ceramic box, keep rings in or a little treasure.

This is a lovely platter with sweet pink roses all around it. It shows its age but that just makes it all the more special, some one loved it very much.

Well Ladies I do have more but I am leaving them for my shop. I will post my Esty address on Friday. I hope you like what I have for sale. I am going to have lots of Shabby chic items, when I get done with my other projects I am going to make some pillows and doll quilts and lap quilts in Shabby tones. So please keep and eye out for those items. Now I am done hocking my craft shop. hahaha

Today I went to my Sweet Sisters house and she let me shop in her garage for some goodies. I found some great stuff four pictures for my walls, that match just great. Some rugs, and little things. I will share them with every one when I get some photos.

My Sister is the best there is. She and her hubby are moving back home here, so I can't wait for that to happen. Even though this might sound silly but pray that their house sells soon.

This week is clean up week here, so we have been going through our garage and shed. We were surprised that we did not have a lot of junk. I want to go and take a look see at some one else's junk, never know I might find a real great find. They are picking them up this Saturday so I had better go tomorrow. Well Dear Friends I will stop for now, I hope all of you have had a great week. My the Lord Bless you and keep you all well and safe.
