Time to Start Crafting for the 4th
Im a little late this year since I lost my Mom
this month. She lived to be 93 years young
but I'm sure you'll all agree..
We never want to loose our Mommies.
I have a Broken heart she was my greatest Fan.

She was an incredible Mother
to all 7 of us...
I wish I could tell her one more time how much I love her...

Thank you for popping by,

Well hello out there in cyberspace ...
Anyone there anymore? Did you miss me??
Do you remember me?

Its been way to long since I did a Post on My Blog
Truth be told I was kinda locked out of it,
things changed with Blogger and I was stumped
on how to get back into my Blogger platform..

I tried numerous times and no luck.
But then today, yes just today my sister from Cottage Cozy called
me and said "you've got some very strange comments on your Blog"
Ok I thought let me try again I got out my trusty password book
and re-logged in and BAM! it worked so here I am back at it!

Of course a lot has happened in the world in my life since my last post
But let's skip to the good part!

I desperately wanted to share my recent Marketplace Find!
And I have to find like mind people that would
think like myself these are the cutest little Easter
Honeycomb baskets!

It always amazes me how any of these paper ornaments have survived
over the years. Very happy someone somewhere did treat them with
care so that people like us could treasure them once again!

I bought just 6 the seller had more, but keeping within my budget
and my Easter Tub down to one! 
I resisted the temptation... was definitely hard!
Well they arrived today in the mail!

each one stamped JAPAN
I knew you would like them!

Well It looks like Ive got some work to do on my
Blog to really make it working they way it used to
I plan on figuring that out. And I will keep posting
so please lets get this community ok like-mind
individuals back together again.

Wish Me Luck

Finding Vintage Dolls in Random Places!

This is exactly what I spotted on a shelf at my local Goodwill Thrift Shop

I must say it looked pretty messed up but in looking a little closer
I spotted one of my favorites.... a Nancy Ann Storybook Doll!

When I got it home I carefully Removed the massive amount 
of tape that was wrapped around this grouping.
Being ever so cautious not to cause too much damage.
Do you spot what I spotted the little doll with the 
pale ink bonnett?

Now the other dolls that were in that little plastic tub
were not impressive but I do know that just sometimes
those cheap hard plastic dolls body parts can come in handy
when I have a long forgotten Storybook Doll
that in fact is in need of a new limb!

You ask "how much did I pay for these?"
A whole $2.99.. not a bad find!! 😊

Quarantine Crafting In The Studio

With months of staying home its really made me appreciate
the hobbies I have...
Crafting and Creating Sweet Keepsakes for my Etsy Shop
has always been a passion of mine...

Unfortunately Etsy has disappointed me .. it seems that there
are so many craft supplies and commercial items being sold..
and a lot of people that just copy others work!
And my Creations have just sat and sat ...
Giving me a Kinda sick feeling that maybe no one likes what I create!
 so I set out to look  for new outlets to sell my handmade treasures..

I'm Happy to say I have found a couple outlets for my Designs
and I am feeling once again energized that people out there
actually like my Creations... 

Sales are up and I'm getting positive feedback compliments
from buyers... with all the turmoil going on in the World right now
having this positive response well..... its a GOOD thing

And I'm back to my Blog staying positive..

Thanks for Visiting
