A Change in Plans and Sweet Little Antique Frames

For weeks I've been planning to travel to Michigan for grandparent's day at the school that two of my 'girlies' attend.  In a Midwestern winter, one's travel plans must always be tentative, subject to the weather.  Originally I was going to leave on Sunday, then yesterday...but areas of Michigan and Indiana were treacherous. 

At 3:30 this morning, the weather won and my last chance to get there on time evaporated into the frigid air. It was disappointing, but now my fingers are crossed, hoping that they will be able to make it here for their Christmas visit.
There's always a plan B.  
Mine was to continue stocking my etsy shop.
These lovely little photo frames were photographed and ready
to go.  Don't you just love the patina on each of them?

As I was listing them, an order came in and an etsy milestone was reached.
Eight hundred and fifty items sold on etsy since July of 2009.
I am so appreciative of each of my customers; I love the personal connections on etsy, the friends I've made, and the fact that my little treasures are going to good homes. 
   to each one that  has visited my shop. 


  1. I'm sending up a little prayer for an end to the ice and snow for y'all.
