New ETSY Shop!

I am excited to say that not only am I getting knee-deep in blogland, but now I have my toe in the water for my Etsy shop too.  I will be loading my few little goodies this weekend, but you get to have a sneak peak.

This great little side table was a great find.  It was mustard yellow when I found it and I knew I would change that.  What I did not realize was that it was solid mahogany!  A shame to paint it again, I know, but that yellow was a dickens go get off.  I usually do most of it with sanding, but it wouldn't budge.  So out with the paint stripper and a dozen coats later, it was finally at a point where I could work with it.  I feel this table is an antiqued aqua/soft blue, however in some light, it takes on more of a greenish tint.  It will be darling next to chair stacked with your favorite reading material or even next to a twin bed.  Furniture will only be going to locals, but don't worry.  There will be plenty of other goodies also.  P.S.  I will also be offering my services to "charm" a piece of furniture or architectural finding to your liking.  Something to think about!

I love this old jar with the tin lid.  Inside are ten little pears.  The glass has a few bubbles in it, which I think adds to the charm.  (Pears are included with this item.)

I fell in love with this old baby formula bottle filled with vintage shoe buttons.  I had never seen such!

Old dome flower frog for the garden lover!

I have to say that these napkins are my favorite!  I am a major cloth napkin lover and keep an old metal basket full of them to use every day instead of paper.  These lovelies are sweet.  Cream with a yellow jacquard banding.  It is hard for me to part with these six.

And lastly (for now) this adorable tiny cut glass cruet with stopper.  It is tiny and full of charm.  The swirled buttom makes it sit slightly off tilt, but I think it adds to the charm.

Measurements, prices, and more views of each will be included on the Etsy page.  I hope to have these loaded by the end of the weekend.  I have no idea what to expect from there, but I know I am excited (slump....BE GONE!)!.

For now....until I get a button from this page to that page, please use the link here:

I hope to see you there!!  (Sorry for the strange spacing on this post.  My granddaughter is fussing and my play time is over!!  ;~) )


  1. You go girl!!!! I'm so excited about your shop!!! You KNOW I love your taste...and can't wait for you to get it up and going ~ I hope you're having a wonderful weekend Carol, hugs and love, Dawn

  2. Welcome to the wonderful world of Etsy Carol! That is a great idea to offer large items to local customers. Looks like you're off to a great start. (By the way, I do not know why my latest post is showing up as a link on here, Google must be acting up I guess.) ~Lili

  3. Thank you both. Believe it or not, I have already had my first sale. I will have to say goodbye to my favorite napkins, but I'm sure the new owner will love them as I do.

    Thanks for your notes of encouragement!!


Your comments mean so much.
Many thanks for taking the time to drop me a note.
