what to do...what to do...

OK, so...My daughter Christina will be in India until almost three weeks from now, and although it is the usual time frame between visits, it feels much longer. Knowing that she is on the other side of the world with her wonderful husband and delightful 2 year old son, makes it seem like an eternity. I usually call her everyday and I always say hi to my little Kavi and that is just not possible for these weeks ahead. So.. I must patiently wait for an occasional e-mail updating us on the visit with family there. Suj's family only gets to see Kavi once a year, and he has changed so much, I am sure they are partying down with him in Mumbai!
I figured that if I try to distract myself with projects, perhaps the time will go faster, so I rearranged some shelves, cleaned some corners, mopped a floor, planted some flowers...but...that was all just on the day they left on the plane, so...almost three weeks left!
I have been contemplating what to do with my second etsy shop, "The Lilly Of The Valley" which is at bare bones now with a few hand stamped gift tags. Angela from
Pickles on Pizza recently opened a vintage etsy shop and is doing real good and loving it and she had suggested I might try selling vintage too. I also love to thrift and garage sail and I already have several frames and pictures that I have no room for on my own house walls, so maybe...
I also crocheted some pillows and throws for my own house and could possibly make some to sell...hmmmm
well, that is what is on my mind today, after showering, I am going to a yard sale that is described as "All of my Mother's Treasures" which advertises all sorts of crafts supplies. Should be interesting to see what I can come up with! Have a great day today!


  1. The yard sale sounds like FUN! BTW, if I haven't told you I just love your house.

  2. thank you so much! I love all your pictures of your property and house too! looks like a beautiful area!

  3. I hope Stina and family are having a great time!! I look forward to hearing all about her trip!

    I think a vintage shop sounds cool because you can have such a variety without trying to think up different things to create (that other etsy shops aren't already selling). Plus... yard sales and flea markets are a BLAST!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog... I am feeling a little better after having slept on it!!
