Hello all and happy Sunny Sunday! We had the most glorious warm June day today. The kind of day that made you want to go walk barefoot through the garden sipping an iced tea or something like that. But did I get to do that? Not really...I have desperately needed to get back to my poor neglected little Etsy shop, Elegant Farmhouse and do some restocking. I also had a shift at the hospital today (24/7, 365, you know how that goes), giving me limited time to do ANYTHING. So, instead of whiling away the hours conferring with the flowers (any Wizard of Oz fans out there to get my humor???), I stayed indoors and got some much overdue shop keeping done. I hope you'll forgive me the shameless self-promotion, but I do have some dandy offerings and they make a pretty picture as well. That and I don't have much of anything else to blog about. INSERT SHEEPISH GRIN HERE... Hey, I'm nothing if not honest...
The beautiful clock face above is a recent find. It is Seth Thomas and get a load of the cool shape. It is paint over zinc. LOVE it!
The little bobbins you all were so complimentary of a few weeks back finally made their way to the shop as well as the cute cast iron urn.
Any Nebraska fans out there? I found this awesome silk embroidered pillow a couple of weeks ago. I just can't resist the old motto pillows and state pillows. Such care was taken to embroider them. If only I had some Nebraska connection...
Can't seem to resist picking up old photos. These aren't in great shape but they'd been awesome incorporated in artwork, don't you think? I have a couple of sets of them...
I got busy cutting and ironing some more wallpapers yesterday. It is amazingly time consuming, but I just love playing with the pretty papers, even if it is just so I can sell them.
There are 10 sheets of different wallpapers, one large page from an old French dictionary, a vintage Bingo card, and a little romantic card all tied up with a yard of pink crinkled seam binding.
I also put together some wallpaper scrap packs of smaller pieces of a bunch of my favorite papers and packed them up in these cute little envelopes I made out of antique ledger paper. OK, yes, I had fun playing so it wasn't all work!
I hope you all had a good weekend and are gearing up for a great week. I have a boatload more goodies to add to the shop, so I'll get it done little by little. It's summer! Woo! Hoo! I don't want to get so busy that I miss it!
Until next time,
