About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


I love plates!

I have a fascination with vintage plates. My own personal collection is always expanding and can sometimes be seen in pictures that I take of food that I’ve cooked. There’s no preference given to any particular era, or pattern, or style ~ it’s a “I’ll know it when I see it” kind of thing. I love to peruse estate sales, flea markets and the like for that next piece to add to my collection. The thrill of the hunt is the best part of all. Plus, I love a bargain ~ I don’t believe I’ve paid more than $1 for a single plate (and probably far less). I was recently browsing the vintage section of Etsy, where I found some great prospects to add to my collection. Aren’t these cool?!?
