Wow ... Christmas is almost here!

This season has found me sick and with a baddddd head cold sinus infection  :(
I can't believe how long this is taking to get over! I'm on my second does of Amox... this should solve it!
I hope :)
I've got some new boas that just came in ... YAY!  I will be putting on "alittlescrappy" , probably not until after this weekend though, as this is our early Christmas, when all the kids and us can get together time wise.
I've been busy working on some more Christmas Pendants for a friend ...  sorry these photo's are not the best in clarity...
I've just got to get back into my jewelry site ...
Here is a dream of mine ... that I will become a more faithful writer on my blog ... the time always seems so spent ... but, I'm going to try :)      
Merry Christmas to everyone!!!
Thank you to all who has been a reader here and those of you who also follow and have purchased from me in my shops! Thank you for being a blessing in my life! :)I truly appreciate it!
Have a wonderful Christmas!!! 
And may God bless you and he has me!Sally

It is actually a PDF of your Etsy site, in the form of a Catalog that you can print up and take with you to show the products carried in your shop...pretty neat!
I'm sticking the App's link in here to show it off in case you have not checked into it like me... LOL

Here's what it looks like all you do is input your Etsy shops address: Make Your Shops Catalog

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

A Pendant for my Grandson

I got the sweetest phone call the other day from my Grandson :) As you see there is this girl ... who is a friend, who is having a birthday soon and he wanted to know if I could make her a little bauble pendant type necklace with her name in it ... well, what could a Grandma say to that ... LOL

As I was getting things out and ready, I just couldn't believe how long it had been since I had just "whipped out something" YIKES .... I think it's been about a year or so since I've sat down to work with my jewelry products ... I just couldn't believe it!!!  Kind of nice to get back into it :)  Hopefully ... I won't wait that long again.

... here's the outcome!
Here's for you Siah xoxo  Grandma!!!

"10 Tuesday Treats" is a segment of a cute blog called Supermom, Alysha the owner of this blog is doing some re-vamping, with Tuesdays as a special time to show and or talk about shops listed on Etsy!  This first segment this last Tuesday was on Wooden Finds, and I felt so honored to have been one of the shops picked with my French stamped natural clothespins :)          

Alysha's blogging started off as a way to share life with her distant family members and now she just can't go without it! It's a "mommy-blog" she admits, but you can find spots about photography, crafts, recipes and more.  A very cute blog ... and now I'm a follower too  :)  Thanks for finding me Alysha!  Sally

Etsy Treasury - Little Millinery Shop

Etsy Treasury - by Noodle

Such a sweet treasury!!!  I love this, soft pastels yummy vintage and more!  Lots of fun items for making crafts and decorating ... beautiful flowers from 32NorthSupplies ... I'm may have to get some of these  :) !!!  A darling little pin cushion...oh so sweet from the ShabbyQueen!  Gorgeous threads and other sewing items listed by MillineryMiss and if you love sewing here's a picture  from LolasRoom ... how cool would this picture be hanging in your sewing or craft room.  Fun retro items like hats, and a hat box from Jackiedretroboutique and Breathecoutures and Carolmai's store

These items took me back to the younger days of my Mom ... she had hat boxes for all her hats stored up in her closet and shoe boxes stacked up with all her high heels ... not a stitch out of place, in an era of where hats were worn every Sunday to church with matching shoes, gloves and beautiful fur pieces!!!  Wow,I used to just look at Mom and think ... she is just gorgeous!  Right out of Vogue! 

I truly fell in love with this treasury ... I'm late getting this listed on my blog, time had gotten away from me, but still truly worth the visit to all these shops! 

I felt very honored to be included with this lovely group for my ribbon shown here that I carry in my shop at AlittleScrappy.  There are more shops listed here within this awesome treasury, besides the ones mentioned above ... take some time here to just enjoy, relax into an era when life went slower things were more simplistic :)  Go and visit them all and enjoy their beautiful items :) 

Now don't forget while your taking all this in ... to visit the creator of this treasury Noodles!  She has wonderful fun items :)  Here's a little preview from her profile ... "Our little nook at Etsy is like a tiny, dusty drift shop in a small, friendly town, shelves packed with strange and unusual items, retro oddities and vintage glamour vanities, along handmade arts and crafts."

Thank you Noodle!!! for your wonderful treasury of memories for me :)

I'll just stare at the treasury and drool .... LOL
