I have been stockpiling many treasures from my adventure shopping trips and wanted to add them to the store. Here are a few I just put up. Nothing here is worth a million dollars, but I’m not selling them for very much. These items are things that can help personalize a room. They have character and style and are unique. I love Target and Ikea and the other big stores, but you also need to inject something personal and distinctive. The puzzle has great graphics, and is in a sealed box. That would look cool in a bookcase. For the scissor fanatic collectors here are a pair, almost mint, in box. The globe looks distinguished in an office, and this puzzle would look super cute in a kids room. As would the tea set. I don’t think anything is listed over $10. More things to come, so check out my store if you are interested:
Hello, I just listed this lovely picture on my Etsy store:The question is, when do you think it was made?
I was attracted to it because of it’s 1940s feel, southwestern imagery. I have a line of Homer Laughlin tableware from the late 30s that is called “Hacienda” which has similiar colors, similar subject matter:It’s pretty, isn’t it?
Anyway, I bought this needlepoint because it looked kinda 1940’s, but then I focused on the mat board which has a 1980’s quality to it. The frame is very nondescript, it doesn’t shout any particular time to me. It is wood, and very narrow. It is a little dirty, dirty that light cleaning could not clean up, but not banged up.
So what do you think? When was this made?

These are fun. To make things go so much better, I made a piercing cradle (or as my husband call it, ” the Manger”). I got the pattern from this book: Book Art, Handcrafting Artists’ Books by Dorothy Simpson Krause. So then, my books looked a lot better. Looky:
This orange one I made for my husband, and he is going to fill it up with great drawings and give it to me for the holidays.
