You Cant Keep a Good Thrifter Down!

Still nursing this nasty head cold, but getting better every day. I had to ship out four Etsy sales yesterday (yay!) and stopped by to say hi to my friend at SowaSeed/Prior Attire...Cheryl. She mentioned having to go to Walmart to get kitty food...wanna go with..??? Nah....."I thought I would stop by the Thrift store." What???? OK, what time? Ha! Amazing how that perks a person up!
I actually found two of these Milk Glass vases! One has a hairline crack, but holds water...I checked by leaving it full of water all night.
So here are a few of my finds! I came home with a whole plastic bin FULL of new items for my shop. This is a Royal Copenhagen Cup and Saucer...one small chip at the saucer edge, but its a beauty! BTW, isn't it the imperfections of us all that make us one of a kind and priceless???

This is a Lefton China (made in japan) porcelain dish/vase. So Beautiful!

I'll be leaving town on Wednesday for a week in sunny (hopefully) Florida to be with my bff Kathy in Pensacola. I'm dying to get more listed before I go..so see ya in the shop!

Finally Making Some Progress









Ricky and Possum are ecstatic that we would tear the beds apart just so they could play on them!


As you can see turning our front bedroom into an office/sewing room has turned into quite an ordeal. It definitely looked like a hurricane had come thru our 2nd floor. The cats enjoyed it even if we didn't.
I am still trying to recover from the head cold that I contacted a week ago. Its gone from horrible to better, to back to awful several times. I keep plugging along tho. (plugging being a key word associated with sinuses..ugh!) I don't have my space totally finished yet, but I work well in a chaotic mess and I organize best in "piles" so I'm actually in my element. Just don't mess with my piles and I'm fine.
I love my room and I'm busy listing items in my Etsy shops. I just opened Vintagekats last week and I'm already making sales. Katsfabricsnmore is cooking right along too, so I'm pumped to keep adding new things. I think its an addition! Since I come by that righteously, I guess this is a better addition than most I could get caught up in.
I ordered business cards too and they arrived the other day. So fun to be able to hand write a short note to my customers and tuck one in their package. Need some? Check out http://www.vistaprint.com/ to see how you can get some free!
