BCH Etsy Gets An Update

First, let me express my thanks to those who wished us well through the Winter Event that came through here last night.  Thankfully, we got very little ice, just small icicles on the eaves and tree branches. I was antsy all night and hopped up several times to peek out the window to see what was happening.  When the sun came up I was so relieved to really be able to see that we weren't in the freezer!

Regretfully, I have ignored my Etsy store, The Shop @ Blue Creek Home,  while I have been busy prettying up my booth at Old Bank Antiques.

I have been at Old Bank Antiques long enough now to know what is likely to sell there. Now, when I am junking I am looking for booth items, Etsy items, and of course, Rhonda items!!! I am slowly getting better about feeling that I need to keep everything I find!  It is still tempting but I can let things go a little easier every time I go on a search.

I just returned from a two day shopping/junking trip in North AL with sister #4. She can spot treasures among the trash faster that I can.  We had such fun. At night, we would stay up way too late talking. One night we found a great website for craft patterns and ended up ordering several cute ones.  Hopefully, I will have some sweet baby shoes and an incredible handbag on my Etsy shop as soon as the patterns arrive.

While I was there, one of my goals was to get some linen to make a chair slipcover.  I could use the practice before I attempt the sofa slipcover.  There is a great discount fabric store about thirty minutes from my sister's house. Unfortunately,  we didn't get there before it closed, but it worked out fine.  I was pretty much poor by then anyway!

If I had stayed longer with my sister, I would have been playing in 6 inches of snow today!!!

Here are just a couple of the things that I found on the trip that I will be adding to my Etsy store ASAP.

I love old quilt art

How cute are these French poodles?
I will be adding items to my Etsy store until I get the inventory built back up. 

I am joining Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.
