Someone's in the dog house

He's my new welcome chicken! Id'nt he cute?

I just couldn't resist when I saw him in the store -

Well .... I remain on an emotional roller coaster ---unsure how to be or feel at most moments in most days ---- I think I am starting to rally then something comes along and kicks me in the many things I could say right now but they won't be well placed words if I say them now.

Betrayal is such an awful thing. I pray that I don't perpetrate that upon someone again. Some days I wonder if it will end - certainly it will and I hope and pray that I will have the good outcome that I am hopeful for.

Enough blithering for tonight --- resolution to this pain, that's really all I want, I I can move on!

Some random thoughts

Here are a few images from my activities earlier this week ---I have been hand digging my veggie garden .... long story :)

I was just gonna have a few tomatoes and cukes, so I decided to start seedlings this year because my budget is so much tighter. Lo and behold, I have a green thumb and have had success with starting seedlings...

Had so many seedlings I had to keep digging....then I had more seedlings sprout and I hadn't even sowed my carrots, radishes & lettuce...yep - more digging.

I am SO happy though, because I'm now gonna have peas, tomatoes, peppers, cukes and who knows what else!!!
In the midst of my dig, dig, digging I have found bunches of ceramic shards, pieces of glass and a cool old padlock....along with these big a** rocks!

The larger of the 2 took my daughter and I to lift out of the hole. The second one I flipped end over end to get out. Next was a trip to the store to grab some top soil -- those big a** rocks had displaced quite a lot of space ---took two 40 lb bags of top soil to fill in the space and it still wasn't quite even, which will be good for the watering bit.

This pic is the 2 rocks. The other is the first, biggest one I pulled out.

I wish I was better at placing pics on this blog thing....if anyone has advice ---please share!!!!

Just a bit of catch-up

Hard to believe that it's been so long since, am I over due...

So much has happened, rolling one day into the next, and now I'm here....ambiguous I know, but perhaps I'll explain more in a future blog note.

Right now I am psyched that I'm going to the city tonight to see a play with my pal, Nina --- opening night for the Kaleidescope Theatre Productions newest play, then opening night reception after the show! What fun!

If I could just decide what to wear! I've been in the rut of shorts & a tank or Tshirt and that won't do! I am sure I'll decide on something.

The pic is of one of my newer bracelets, on display at the Cuba Dairy Week Craft Fair --- would have done ok if it wasn't for the rain ---but, it was Dairy Week - there will be rain, just a given.

Excited that I have health insurance again - trying out Savella, day #2, to see if it impacts my fibro. The paresthesias have been almost unbearable some days/nights --- makes it hard to sleep.

What the heck - let's plop another pic on here.....what the heck...not working it seems....will wait for another post I guess...too much to do to fart around with it right now.

Wonderful items still listed in my Etsy shop

Gosh --- it's been way too long since I've been on here and updated my blog! I found out about tumblr. and it seems so much easier to use so it's tempting to migrate solely there ---
But I am going to stick it out here on Blogspot! And try to be more diligent about posting and keeping it interesting!

I really need some tutelage in making this look more pretty!

My goal this week --- GET MORE VINTAGE POSTED ON ETSY!!!!! Yeah!

gosh it has been over one year since posting on here...have since started a tumblr acct -== wondering if I should keep both of these....trying to do so many things right long as I have access to my blog, I guess I'll pop in and out occasionally unless I decide to keep blogging instead ;)

The Vintage Market Team

I have been a member of the Vintage Market Team (vmteam tag) on Etsy for a few months and am a grateful member. This team is very encouraging and everyone supports each other nicely. As time is passing during my membership I am learning more from the others daily. Each one had been gracious and kind in responding to my questions, especially the ones that seem silly to me!

These 2 trays are parts of a lot purchase from an estate action I attended a couple of years ago. I had stored them away and forgot all about them.

They are stunningly made and are in very good condition. I ended up with about 12 trays all together plus some other miscellaneous aluminum pieces. As I write this they are in an auction on Ebay. Should they not sell they will be placed in my Etsy vintage shop:

Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog. I can hear the neighbors snow blower going so I better get moving too! Have a great day!
