I can't believe it's been almost 5 months since my last post!! I got caught up in the busyness of summer -- gardening, yardwork, canning... figuring out the ropes of being a new mom -- my son is now almost 9 months (how did that happen?!?)... and harvest time -- I'm married to a farmer.
I am looking forward to investing some more time into my vintage shop on Etsy, and hopefully the blog as well. I recently opened up a vintage shop on Zibbet. I was drawn to Zibbet because there is a basic account option, with no fees!! As much as I love Etsy, (I've been there for years), the fees are a bit of a pain. I'm hoping for some success on Zibbet. I have such a mountain of vintage stuff that needs to be listed (and sold!)!!
My time has also been divided, because I'm been helping my mom in her new endeavour, Sweet Sparrow Design. I'm mostly doing PR work... helping with her Facebook page... Zibbet and Etsy shops... and Twitter. If you're a cloth-diapering mom or not, you should check out her shops! We're hoping to add many new products in 2011... working on baby legs, toddler belts, pacifier clips, and LOTS more!!
Hope you all had a great Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!!

Wow... I've been fortunate to have items from my shop featured three times in this last week! I love looking at different treasuries on Etsy that people put together. It's interesting to see the different combinations that people come up with... and how my items fit in.
Once again, it's been awhile since our last post... wow, the start of Spring has been busy and I've been swamped taking care of my new little one. I love Spring... everything's growing and turning green again... putting in the garden... plants/trees blooming.
Here are a few vintage things that remind me of Spring:
