Bad Ebayer

I bought a blackbery from Trojansteals on ebay on June 29 and never received it yet(Today is the 11th). I am upset about this. If you look at his recent feedback since I purchased there is alot of bad feedback. When I bought he had an 100% rating. I keep thinking he is reselling the blackberry over and over.

13 aprons on EBAY

New on Ebay

I posted a couple of things on Ebay yesterday. Let me show you: 13 aprons, a cute little lighthouse stool and the best of all---a vintage daisy pendant light. I love it, but really don't have a place for it. I found a cigar box of these tax stamps from the 30's to 50's in the garage. I am almost ashamed to say that they have been there for about 20 years.

Last month I started listing my paintings on ETSY. It was a slow start but now that I've sold a couple of paintings there, I am very hopeful. It is so much more economical than ebay.

Blackberry Picking

Today we went Blackberry/Blueberry Picking. We really had to think twice about it because of the cost of gas, but decided if the whole family went in the same car it would be $24 for gas. CRAZY

It was a good time for all. It's good to see the grandkids==15, 10, and 3---having a good time experiencing something I was able to do with my cousins in upstate NY when I was a kid.

Rockstar Painting

I painted this painting to match the Rockstar bedding online, but the customer didn't like it. She was looking for more of a cookie cutter painting that anyone could do. I gave her what she wanted and she was happy. Listed this on ebay last night, and unbelievably it was sold this morning. I am shocked because this is not my style at all.

My latest paintings

I am very touched with the sweet cottage comments about her painting. It looks wonderful in her laundry room as did Tina's from Cherry Hill Cottage in her kitchen.

However, sweet cottage got confused and gave credit of my painting to SusieQ at Rabbit hill. Honest mistake.

My roosters


I'm back from Custom paintings WHEW!!!

I have just a couple more paintings to paint and I will be completely done for now. I am painting a pink cowgirl and a coffee cup paintings right now. I just finished, and I mean just, a custom dog painting that I will post as soon as I seal and glitterize. My son thinks it is over the top, so it is probably okay. It is definitely a SusieQ.

Blue Bird Paining

Tina of Cherry Hill Cottage published a picture of my blue bird painting that she purchased. It looks great in her kitchen. You will have to visit her and see the painting in its new home.

New on ebay

These are my latest finds. The vintage vases are great, the camera doesn't do them justice. I also love the serving bowl, what a decorative piece.

I have two ceramic bunnies and a bunny switch plate cover that I am goint to post next with a wooden bunny with pegs--------darling. They would make the cutest display in a room.
