Trade from paperwaits

I traded some earrings for these goodies from paperwaits (aka Too Many Trinkets)

Two beautiful pendants and two gorgeous pairs of earrings. I have been admiring her shrink plastic work for a while and her artwork of course. Check her out!

Here's what I traded

Some Lovelies From Etsy and More

Well, I've been working for the past few days. Working my gardening job that is. I made a few new things for the shop. I hope it rains at some point so I can have a craft day and the plants really need it.

Anyway I'm back off to work this afternoon. Still having BOGO earrings in the shop so don't miss out.

Here are some lovelies that I wish I could purchase!

My House Update

My creation

Well, I haven't posted any pics of my house in a long time. Mainly because it's been 5 years working on it and I'm a little ashamed I don't live in it yet. Everyone is discouraged and no one has been working on it. It doesn't help that we never seem to agree on things. So if anyone wants to provide me with some encouragement, please do so. I need a kick in the butt! Obviously Adam isn't going to work on it anymore so I'll have to finish it.

Anyway here are some pictures. I need to find pictures of the radiant heat in the cellar floor before the cement was re-poured. It's really amazing to see.

I got a new camera!! I asked for money for my B-day so I could get one. I so wanted a DSLR, but they are so expensive. Eventually I'll get a Canon Rebel XT, for now I settled with a Sony Cyber-shot. It takes beautiful pictures though even inside with no flash. So I can blog more now since I don't have to borrow a camera to take pictures.

Here's some garden pics and a few of plants in my greenhouse :)

The Key To The Secret Garden

We're adding a whole lot more to the shop this week. Check out some of the vintage goodies we found!

There's more than you see here too.

I found some sweet vintage fabric I plan to make at least 1 hat out of too and hopefully some grocery bags. :)
