Preview of Fabulous Items coming to my Ebay Shoppe

Happy Monday to all my sweet blogging friends, and Happy Halloween! My daughter is planning to take my sweet little grandson trick-or-treating tonight, and will be stopping by here, of course.....we went shopping Friday afternoon to find him a cute little costume, and found the perfect one at Walmart...he's going to be a cow! The ears and feet of the costume were pink, so I picked up some black felt, and cut pieces to fit inside of the ears to cover up the pink, and stitched them on, and all I had to do for the pink feet was remove the fabric, as there was black underneath. I'll be sure to take a couple of pics of him, and hopefully show you tomorrow :)

I thought I would give you all a sneek peek as to what will be listing sometime this week in my Ebay and Etsy shoppes.....I have WAY TO MUCH stuff in my home, and I really need, well, shall we say, "purge" some things, and below are pics of what I am willing to part with so far....I'm still going thru things, so there will be more great things to come!

The pretty scrolly frame you see below is vintage, and was made in Italy...I found 2 of these frames, and am keeping one for myself, and parting with the other ~ they were originally bronze in color, but I painted them my favorite Dover White...

Check out these FAB vintage glass & crystal prism candleholders ~ there are 10 crystal prisms on each candleholder....

And don't forget to enter my Holiday Giveaway!! You have until November 18th to enter....the lucky winner will be chosen from one of the comments left on that post, so be sure to go and enter! You can either click on the giveaway button on my top right sidebar, or you can click HERE to take you to that post...

And one last thing before I go, as most of you know, I was featured in the magazine Casa Romantica Shabby Chic, in their July/August Issue, and I am still "flying high" over it! For those of you here in the states that might be interested in having a subscription to this fabulous magazine from Italy, there is a website you can go to, to contact them about doing Now, it is rather pricey, it costs $90 Euros (about $128 U.S. dollars) for 11 issues per year! I do plan to subscribe, but I need to really save my pennies, etc...etc..., before I can do so!

Well, that's about all for today ladies...time for me to go to my sewing room, as I am working on a sweet Christmas Stocking, featuring an adorable Frances Brundage girl in blue!! Be sure to check for it later this week in my Ebay Shoppe!

Until next time sweet friends!!!

Rebecca's Fabulous Train Case Giveaway ~More Stockings ~ Embellished Candle~

Good evening everyone, hope you all had a fabulous weekend
I just have a couple of things to post about today ~ the first is the FABULOUS and Very Generous Giveaway that Miss Rebecca, over at A Gathering Place, is having! She's actually giving away to some very lucky fellow blogger, one of her beautiful refurbished Vintage Train Cases! I purchased one of her Train Cases a few years ago, and just LOVE IT!! It holds some very special and personal items of my parents, who are sadly, both passed away way too young. If I happen to be the one that gets picked to win this one, I plan to keep special momentos of my very first Grandson, and future grandchildren inside of it.

The next thing I wanted to post, are some more pretty Christmas Stockings that I have available in my Ebay shoppe ~ I also have just listed today another pretty embellished Candle, perfect for decorating this Holiday season.

For my International Buyers, I am now offering not only Priority Mail International for shipping, but also First Class Mail International! This will help to save you all some $$$ on your shipping costs.

I'm currently finishing up a sweet Christmas Pillow, and will show you pics of it tomorrow sometime....

Until next time sweet friends!!

New Christmas Stockings coming soon & New photo of Grandson

Goodness, I can't believe it's Wednesday already...where is the time going! Today I have my appointment for my yearly exam, and I also scheduled an appointment for later this month for my very first Mammogram!! And since this is Breast Cancer awareness month, It's the perfect time to have it done.

Yesterday I was busy working in my little sewing room creating some new pretty in pink Xmas stockings that will be listing soon on both Ebay and Etsy, and I'll be creating more this week and next ~ last year I think I sold 30 stockings on Etsy for the Holidays! I need to get my "you know what" in gear and get more made! Creating these stockings are just so much fun for me ~ so many pretty fabrics and trims that can be used to make them ~ my head is literally swimming with ideas for more!!

I'll also be creating just a few Holiday Christmas pillows this year ~ this is one that is currently listed on Ebay ~ if you'd like to check it out just click the link on my right sidebar to take you there...

And of course, I just had to show you the newest photo of my sweet Grandson ~ He's 1 month old now! The outfit he's wearing is one that I picked out for him, because of the cute little airplane ~ my father restored and flew single-engine airplanes, and I thought this outfit was perfect for a tribute to him. I so wish he were still alive to be able to see his very first Great-Grandchild, but I know he can see him up in heaven, and is smiling down at him.

Lampshade makeover ~ Etsy Find ~ New pics of Grandson

Hello everyone!! Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend so far ~ we've been having some wonderful warm weather here in Michigan for the past several days, and I'm loving it!! This morning I went around and picked up all my yard decorations that I had in my landscaping, and put them away for the upcoming winter, and took all the furniture and "stuff" off from the front porch and stored it looks so bare now :( I've got some corn stalks from our garden that I'm going to bundle up and wrap and place them on either side of our front porch steps for some nice fall decoration.

The other day I did a makeover of a lampshade that I found at one of my local Goodwill stores a while back, and wanted to show you a couple of pics of it ~ It has a nice soft pale pink cotton fabric now on it, with pink gimp trim, and at the bottom is some Vintage fringe trim from an old chenille bedspread. The finishing touch is a new pink rose pin.

And look at these fabulous Vintage candleholders that I found while doing some searching on Etsy!! I plan to buy some of that fabulous Cottage White spray paint by Valspar that is sold at Lowe's that Miss Rebecca, over at A Gathering Place, has been talking about, and will make them look so perfectly Shabbylicious!!

Love the sparkle of these Crystals ♥♥♥

Now you know I have to show you all some new pics of my sweet Grandson, Seth!! Amber took these a week ago, when is was 3 weeks this one! He's just kickin' back and "chillin", LOL :)

Awwww, isn't he just the cutest!!! Don't you just want to smother that adorable face with kisses...I know I do :) He is officially 1 month old as of yesterday, 10-08. It doesn't seem like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I always love to have you visit ♥♥♥ I'm going to be spending the afternoon today watching the Nascar race, where they are at Kansas this week....go 24!!!

Until next time sweet friends!!
