Etsy!



Well, I've finally taken the plunge and decided to open an Etsy shop. I'm finding it fun to put items for sale out there that I either create or others can use for artist supplies.

Such is the case of this vintage ledger paper. I happened onto an old 1880 ledger from the Youngstown, Ohio area. Gorgeous handwriting! It seems to be an accounts receivable type ledger. Pages are for sale in my Etsy shop! This is a great find, with just enough ink blots and marks on the pages to give it that lovely vintage character we all love.
As you can see by my side bar, I've just put out there a pair of felt baby shoes. They seem to have faded to a blue/blue-green color. I've glittered them up and added vintage pink seam binding for ties. Just too cute!

I've also put my Romantic Lady boxes out there. What a great gift idea for Mother's day, etc. Wouldn't a gift card look lovely in them?
Well, that's my news. Heather is posting a new post today for her shop. I've included a few dresses I had (one prom dress and one child's flower girls dress) for her new listings. Check her out at Pretty Petals.
Hope you all are enjoying the spring as much as I am. My flowers are now just coming up. Crocuses are showing their pretty little heads! Daffodils and tulips will be next! Time for yard work! I don't know whether to be happy or sad about that?? I'll say happy until mid summer! LOL!

Enjoy your day!
Kitty
P.S. - not sure why blogger set my pictures up the way it did. Oh well, not being a techy, I'll have to live with it! LOL!
