This all stems from my love of "treasure hunting". I have acquired more than I could ever use in a lifetime, or have room for in my home. It always amazes me how people discard things simply because they seem old or outdated. Sure, we all love to get new things, but when something still serves a purpose, why get rid of it? To me, items from the mid 20th century and before are so much more lovely than what is being made today. Check out my shop, and see if you agree!
- This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, 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'm pleased to announce that I have opened a second shop on Etsy! This is a labor of love that was first conceived one year ago, but it has taken me until now to put into place. I hope that you will check it out ~ I haven't listed everything, so there will surely be some new treasures popping up in the days and weeks to come. You never know what you will find, and that is half the fun :) The name of my shop is Back Door Deals ~ I named it this after a joke between my husband and I. There is a particular beverage shop that we go to, and whenever we do, the owners always give us a great deal, but they tell us to go out the back door, so the other customers don't see us.
