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

What a Wonderful Month of Love!

The Colors Of Valentines Day!

Whimsical Vintage Valentines
always add a great touch!

These 3 Spun Cotton Animals were plucked
from Kohls Christmas Clearance 75% off
I had to reach to the tip-top of a Tree display
to rescue the Darling Elephant aren't they cute?

I was only able to do a little bit of crafting 
for this Valentine Season!

I did put this banner together so easy to do...
Using a simple Target Banner $3 just added some of my
Vintage Valentines using mini clothes-pins
so not to damage the Valentines!

We also had Company this month 
Our daughter and her Family visited
from Utah

And since I had all my Valentine craft goodies out
Amelie one of our grands stayed very, very 
busy creating whimsical goodies!

Thanks for popping by

Christmas Crafting Kitschy Kittens

It's a Merry Crafting Christmas Season!

About a week ago I posted this picture on a sharing Group
on Facebook.... Not sure if you have heard of one of these groups
you can share your crafts but can't mention a thing about selling your crafts

The above picture is the one I posted!
Now mind you these Kitsch Kittens were from last years crafting
and I no longer had any made.

But I got such positive response to the point the admin of this
Facebook Group set off commenting...
(which I thought was a bit strange)

So I decided to get out my supplies...
fire-up the old glue gun and get busy!

One little hiccup my glue gun died!!

I had to postpone crafting until I shopped for
a new Glue gun....
Got a New Glue Gun, and I'm back in business 

I've only made 4 and I'm offering them for sale
in my Etsy Shop  Saturdayfinds $25 includes shipping

I hope your Enjoying your Thanksgiving Weekend
A special time to be Thankful!

Big Hugs From Rainy California,
