I finally painted my kitchen window [ a blue green ] , and then I made a valance using vintage handkerchiefs
My inspiration came from the Flickr photo below . Mine isn't quite as nice .and I just couldn't get a good photo .
but I'm still happy with it
The little lamb cup holds little baby dolls that I bought at Stratford Antique Center
I needed to take a break from Etsy ... I swear Etsy consumes my mind and time . I used to spend time fixing up my house , but now I get anxious .... thinking " oh , I should be working , I should be taking photos and listing on Etsy "
I need to get back into my house , I need to get back into reading and going outside [ especially now since it is cooler ]
OH >>> and I made a quilt ! My very first quilt . It's nothing really special , I just stitched 5 inch squares together , but it makes me happy . I didn't even take a photo of it , maybe I will soon ..... Juliette loves to sleep on it .
so >>>> now I need to paint the kitchen cabinets , but that will be a big job
Just wondering > Does Etsy consume you ? Do you look for hearts and sales ????
Are you always thinking you will come up with that ONE item that a thousand people will buy ?
Etsy is like gambling ..... Come on Etsy , Baby needs a new pair of shoes
P.S>. Don't forget to enlarge the photo and THEN click again > to get even closer !
