Good Monday afternoon!! Well I made it through another show weekend..it was lots of fun and I look forward to going back next year...hopefully with more vintage antique type items as it seems thats what folks are after..I did sell some of my handmade items..but only a few..folks at this thing want vintage...period..or to look vintage..and the dolls aren't for everyone..will still take them..cause every year is different..sunday was a waste for me..only made $8..and spent 5..;) so will only do the 2 days next year..unless I have some really neat things and they don't sell the first day..the place I went to is called "The Christmas House" and they now have a blog..I hope they stay with it...as you will see all the wonderful items they have and see why I love this place sooooo much..:) Carolee was kind enough to give me these old berry baskets..they came with the 100 year old house they live in..:)..so I changed out my berry basket in my kitchen for one of these and now my salt dough strawberrys are sitting in one of these vintage beauties.:)
6 lovely baskets..
I stopped by that garage sale again..it was across the street and she put out more stuff..so had to check it out..some of these baskets that I got will be great gift baskets this christmas and some are staying with me..and I will use them to put stuff in.;)I only paid $5.00 for my stuff yesterday as she gave me alot of the items.:)
for all you basket people out there that know your baskets..I was told by the gal that gave..yes gave it to me..that this is one old basket..Carolee of the christmas house said that her grandmother had one just like it..so this one is mine.;) would love to know how much it is worth...it is in great condition...so if anyone knows what it is called or what it is worth..I would love to know.
she also gave me this basket..she used to use it as a purse..I love the work that went into it..I also got a fishing creel...but gave it to Carolee..as she was looking at it the day before..;)
I got 2 more stamps and 3 fire king plates..I have the whole collection of these and use them all the time..;)
Carolee gave me this cute little basket..will use it with one of my dolls..;)
and you can see where the purse basket is right now..I am still waiting on something from firecracker kid to arrive..so this will all change yet again..
Well I have taken BEFORE photos of my craft room..cause it is a total disaster...have a big bin..am going to go through my craft room and what I am not using..is going in it for next years sale..taking photos of everything in the bin..so I can document it and have it incase I need something out of it..I can see it in my photos and go and get it..going to price everything..(hopefully) so it is done for next year..but I can't breathe in this room and need to reorgnize for new stuff..but really so I can find the stuff that is already in here..will be sure to take after photos too..becoming a craft whore..lol..;) some may go on my blog for sale too..so when I am done taking photos..if anyone see's something they must have..just let me know..
I am also taking the year off from the christmas show I do every year..I just need a break and want to give my etsy shoppe a go and maybe do the show next year..I have alot of projects that I have put off for a couple of years now..so I need to get on those..and I want to paint my bathroom..and my foot that either has severe tendonitis(?) is hurting from too much standing..so gotta take it easy..and time to make another appt with the doctor to get this addressed once and for all..this has been hurting for 1-1/2 years now..and the shows aren't even helping..so need to figure out why I am in so much pain..can't put weight on it for too long..and going down hill or down stairs..hurts..well I am off to organize..or I will just veg and take a nap..and I don't want to take a nap..this room is bugging me way too much..have a great week ahead..will be back tomorrow or wednesday to post again..hopefully a clean and tidy room:)
This just in..I forgot to mention..I just lowered the prices in my Etsy shoppe..so if you find something let me know..
Also a wonderful gal named Lisa she is a member of our Old farmhouse gathering team on etsy..she "bloglighted" my blog today...she certainly made my day.:)
