Fun and Exciting things happening....

The Collected Home..a little photoshoot that I set up for an ad..
would you like to see those little pillows in a store?

 ell, if anyone has bothered to check out THE COLLECTED HOME over on etsy lately, you will see that there is sadly no stuff=not so "collected", right?.  WRONG!

Hold the phone people, lest you worry your pretty little heads.  I have not jumped ship! Very much to the contrary...I have been "collecting" up a storm...for a little endevour that I will "see" so much more of my efforts, and get my name out there locally.  You see, I have found that I am not very good at the etsy site, b/c the work of taking photos, posting, mailing, etc. (not that i really did much of that, these things were what was holding me back from pulling the trigger wholeheartedly.)  Best laid plans.  I spend an exorbidant amount of time on the computer as it is. (ask my husband, sometimes he thinks I am married to the computer and not him:)   I need to be out and about, maybe seeing where my finds land....maybe helping a family make their home all it can be in the process.

Anyhoo, back to the endevor at hand.  There is a very nice consignment store in town, that will remain nameless at the moment...I have to build some suspense:), that has invited merchants/designers to carve out a little nook in the space.   I was asked, and was obliged to take part!...and am pretty excited about it!  You see I DO have a lot of stuff, and I WANT it all to go to good homes, and I FEEL the need to share it with other people.  I don't SEE myself stopping anytime soon.  The journey begins...or another part begins, I am really excited.  Going to be a busy month....oh, is the month almost over.  GEEZ!  I better get to work!

So stay tuned, my friends.

BTW: I am so thankful to this blog and all of the wonderful people I have "met" in blogland.  I wouldn't have the courage to start something if it wasn't for all of your amazing support.    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my little ol heart:)

Very exciting news Gretchen! Can't wait to hear more about this as things unfold. And your comment about being married to the computer just cracked me up, pretty similar in my house! The worst part is, we have teenagers whose "screen time" we try to limit, I'm sure setting a great example...! (I call my screen time "work" when they comment...!)

Yeah!! That is so great! Isn't it fun to have a little shop/space/booth to call your own? Oh, you will rock at this. Can't wait to see all your goodies in place! Yes, the suspense is building!

That is wonderful, Gretchen! A dear friend of mine has started a booth over in Plaza Midwood. I am dying to come to Charlotte to see old friends and meet new ones. I'll have to work on that!

But of course whatever you delve into will be no doubt loads of fun and style. Good luck on your endeavors and keep us posted from the bottom of your little ole heart to mine.
Married to the computer would be a great name for a blog. I have heard my hubs spout off a few choice words. I mean a blog takes time, and it besides, it makes me a better wife too.... :)
