I'm heading to Palm Springs with a friend for a whole month...We're driving down and going to stop in San Fran for a few days too. I really need a break although I can't complain about the Portland weather this winter. My roommate is going to man my Etsy shop and when I return, spring should be in full swing, Any ideas on what to do there? I've never been.

I have no rhyme or reason to what I have in the Etsy shop. It's a great pastime though! Here's a few items that are coming and going in and out the door. Visit the Etsy shop because things are flying off the shelves and you never know what I will find next....should I post Christmas things too or wait for the season to come around again? I have TONS of really fun and gorgeous Xmas from kitschy to Victorian. Let me know if you think I should focus on Xmas too.

So now that I'm trying to do more on Etsy I have to get real about taking close up pictures of stuff. It's hard! I researched the internet and finally am getting a more professional look. I made my own light box out of 5 pieces of white foam core from the dollar tree, a gooseneck lamp and a roll of white paper. Taking the pix with my cell phone (using the "square" option) produces a much better product. Now I want to retake all the photos of my previous listings...they look gross. Check out my latest listing and see how much better they look!

I miss the blog even though I don't miss manning the shop! My freedom is wonderful and I am truly enjoying it but I still love to shop. Sorry, I am incurable as far as the shopping part goes. It is a disease but I guess things could be worse. So my New Year's resolution is to get busy with my Etsy shop. That way, I won't get buried with stuff and I continue to shop...just not so much for the furniture but I've always loved the little stuff anyway. This is a sampling of my "junk" that I need to start listing...I have a place in my heart for ephemera, crafty stuff, and just plane fun stuff.

Sad to say but Sonya and I closed the shop at the end of September. It was a good five year run but we wanted to reclaim our lives, spend time with family and RETIRE! So it is, the shop is empty and the door is closed one last time. Sonya continues to have a mall space at Monticello Marketplace at 87th and SE Stark in Portland. Who knows? Maybe we'll see you there??
