The Last Entry

Yup! This will be the last entry from me this year. A lot has happened, too many to point out and if your inquisitive (nosy) enough to know, go to my archives.

I don't have the energy to pack Christmas away right now and again, I plan on giving some decorations to Meredith which is my way of saying, I think I'm tired of schlepping out 13 32 gallon containers from the storage and riffling through each and every one.

My diverticulitis has flared up a little. I think it was a tomato seed, who knows, so much going on the past few days. Why didn't Santa bring me a clean up crew?

I don't intend to make a New Years resolution as the odds are I'll never keep it and anyways I am not looking forward to Jan, Feb or March as those are my least favorite months of the year...analyze all you want as I have no clue why I don't like them.

But what I do want to say is, thank you to each and every one of you who I've come to known through this blog. From Maryland, South Carolina, down to Texas, Hawaii and Canada and everywhere in between, I Wish you all a very safe and happy New Year. Thanks for listening to my vents, fears, concerns and joining me in my joys, triumphs. I will definitely be here next year reporting on the ridiculous and of course the sublime....I'm Just Sayin'

Cookies and Feathers

I found out what a "cookie exchange" was and I'm glad to say, I survived it. About 3 weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting some awesome ladies, the Feather sisters to be exact, and they invited me to attend their annual cookie exchange and to show off my wares. So dragging Brenda along with me to Laguna Beach, both of us, not knowing what we got ourselves into, are happy to announce....We had a wonderful time and met the nicest people. First of all....this lovely lady here, Ms. Cheri Feather owns and operates an awesome company called Jewelrax. It's a company that specializes in one of kind display pieces made to organize and showoff your jewelry in a very stylish way .....I want one! She also lives in this TDF 1920 seaside cottage that is decorated in the most tasteful way possible.

~~This gorgeous vignette of stained blue window and vintage bottles~~

~~Stunning Chandeliers with touches of silver stood guard on both sides of her fireplace~~

~~Speaking of the fireplace~~

~~And here are just some of the delectable delights that graced this event~~

~~and more scrumpiousness~

~and yes, even more~

And the main reason I was invited to this little soiree, to introduce Bunny's Purpose to the Feather sisters and their flock. Needless to say, even if I didn't have a thing to show, I would have crashed this party anyways, it was that much fun.

I want to extend a huge thank you and ((hug)) to Cheri, for giving me this opportunity and for being so kind. I also would like to give a shout out to Katie Doyle who owns and operates two ridiculously fab Event Services and Decor operations....I tell ya, the style runs deep in this family. And Pam, thank you hon from the bottom of my heart for expediting things along and helping me with my obsession.

Seems like this is the beginning of a new chapter for me and I'm all ears....bunny ears.

Bunny's Purpose

When the last daughter flew the coop for College, I jokenly would tell people that NOW, I have no purpose. I really didn't believe it, it was all in fun kinda, I knew I had purpose and I knew there were many facets to being artys fartsy in a crafty way. I knew this as a child as I would rearrange and redecorate my room (constantly) from recycled and re purpose items...I just knew.

So last week I did pretty darn good at this cute little boutique and as Eric, my helper husband and I were setting up, people were coming outta the woodwork to hem and haw at my stuff. I, being the master of "doubting my ability" was too busy to stand there and take in the praise...I was just too focused on what I was doing, besides, people always say stuff like that don't they?

So, like I was saying, I did alright, learned a little more, took mental notes and decided I was gonna go with Etsy with what I had left...

Ya know... stuff happens when you make plans...The vender next to me loved my stuff so much that she invited me to an event at her house ,in Laguna Beach, to sell what I had left. No pressure, no commission on her part, no strings...she just wants people to see my items. No other venders will be there, just me and then she tells me,"some of my friends own stores in that area
and they too will be there, so, think about it and let me know".

So opportunity sometimes kicks your ass into the doorway and doesn't even knock...I talked with her yesterday and said, "sure, I'll be there" cool as a cucumber but really a hysterical mess inside, which btw, I do really well.

And then, the owner of the boutique I sold at, asked me to come back in the spring. So, needless to say, I am busy...very busy and grateful....very grateful and ordering business cards for........

Yup, you got it.....

Dragonflys and Buttons

I've hit the big least in my head I have. I am selling my creations at an kinda upscale boutique in the quaint little town of Orange, California. For those of you who are familiar with this area, this little boutique is at the Orange Circle, for those of you who are not familiar with this area....this is one of the few areas around here that antique stores line four major streets with a huge park area in the middle....hence, the circle. Seems I gave my number to someone at the flea market a couple of weeks ago not knowing it was the owner of said establishment.

Well, you coulda' knocked me over with a feather when she called and asked if I would like to join in on the Christmas Boutique Dec 4th and needless to say....I was happy and excited and then curious and finally....scared. But, Ima' gonna do it, because I got nothing to lose but my dignity and lord knows....that went out the window a long time ago.

So, wish me luck, say a prayer and send me good karma, cuz I don't know what the heck I'm doing....I'm Just Sayin'
