~little etsy update~

Hello friends!

I've been adding so many things to my etsy shop,
that I thought you all might want to see....
and like


I've been completely obsessed with
hunting for treasures!


yep, seriously in the "can't stop digging mode"
driving all over town...searching....for....


stuff
stuff that you might like.....
and it's not like you make a bunch of money,
selling stuff....


but it's enough to go out
&
search for more treasures....


and...
it's the hunt.....


and I can assure you, my bloggy friends....

{whom I adore!! you guys bring me so much joy...
I feel like I have a whole bunch of new friends!}


I search for only the treasures that
I have a hard time parting with....
yup, they have to make me smile....


they have to speak to me.....
{ok...is he the cutest thing ever??}

 
it's fun.....

and lots of fun when others like the treasures I find, too!

All of your treasures are lovely. Treasure hunting is fun, but it is the parting that is sweet sorrow :) I will have to go check out your Etsy.

Have a great night.

Beach House Living said...

Wonderful finds...as for the parting that is hard.

wendy said...

what a beautiful blog you have. I love your style. Found you through Faded Charm (whose style I also love) I love OLD things
with charm
and a crystal chandelier in the kitchen IS MY DREAM
I will have one someday ----and it will still be surrounded by old and country. I love the contrast.

I feel exactly the same way, not much money, but I so enjoy the hunt. I end up keeping a lot of what I buy, and then at some point it gets to the flea market space. I never buy anything I wouldn't use myself! Love your goodies,
Debra

It is definitely the thrill of the hunt!
I love combing through all of my favorite haunts and finding something that I know my buyers will love too.

Good stuff you are showing us today.

pretty stuff, I love looking for treasures too!

Mary said...

Oh my gosh! That is too weird...I just found that exact same sugar bowl when I was out scouting for treasures on Sunday. You have great taste! ;O) wink...wink... ~mary~

Karen Valentine said...

I know what an awesome feeling it is when you find that perfect little piece. I wish there where more places around her to search in. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you!

Shellagh,
I've been doing the same girl! Except I'm thinning out not only the stuff from the store, but from home as well. I've decided to take the leap & actually decorate this house. Lisa

Karen said...

Exactly! It's the hunt! I saw a junky friend yesterday (I love junky friends!) and we were talking about that, getting spring fever, getting out and finding great stuff. It reminds me of men who go hunting for the things with horns lol! AND to top it off, you meet some of the nicest people, hunting for wonderful things! AND you can buy lots, because you can share it!

Tina said...

Love your treasures Shellagh! I am hoping to go thrifting tomorrow morning, hope I find some lovely treasures too:) Thanks for sharing. Have a lovely day. - Tina

Hey Shellagh, looks like you've been having fun find treasures. I always say a little prayer before I go into a thift store..."oh, please let me find at lease one little treasure"! Unfortunately, I work full time, so I don't get much 'junkin' time these days! Good luck with your Etsy adventure. I had some things listed a few months back, but didn't sell much..I guess I should give it another try.

So, as for the chair...well, I have had it on my 'to do' list for the last 2 Saturdays, but just can't quite get going. I've decided which fabrics and all, but I think I need a larger size piping than what I have. What do you recommend? As always, I appreciate your input.

Thanks
Susie

Anne at Fiona and Twig said...

We sound just like sisters!
I treasure hunt for exactly the same reasons.

Wonderful stuff as always, and your Etsy shop is looking pretty darn tempting! ;-)

XO,
Anne

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Yes, you have found some lovely things to add to your Etsy store. I can see why you would have a hard time parting with some of them. The hunt is fun isn't it?

cityfarmer said...

I'm finding out that this is a numbers game ...the more you post the more you sell ...
go girl ...

I've had the best week in my four year blogger history over at stuffintheburbs ...
I'm pinching myself.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I love your stuff. The sugar bowl you have is the set of dishes my mom had when I was growing up - I just recently asked her if she still had them, but alas they are gone. You do find such delightful treasures. Thanks for the effort.

littlebyrd said...

Your etsy shop is BEAUTIFUL!

Emom said...

I absolutely agree! I love the hunt, and I really hate to part with most of them...but that helps with pricing too....smiles.

FrenchGardenHouse said...

You said it exactly right! Great finds. Hope you have a happy weekend. ps. I am not getting any chickens anytime soon. xo Lidy

Lori Miller, Round barn Potting Co. said...

I'm with you .... the smalls are sometimes the biggest treasures. I wish I could get some of your chairs at my shop.... I covet everyone you create.
Lori

BellaRosa said...

Shellagh what lovely treasures you find...I too love to hunt and I plan on selling some of my treasures one day..notice I say one day :) I just have a really hard time letting go..perhaps there is a 12 step for people like me lol hmmm "treasure hunters/hoarders annonymous" :) Besos, Rose

Hej! Idag är det stora "raggardagen"! Har faktiskt redan fått några "underbara-napp" Ja, inte raggare som i bilburen ungdom utan jag är på jakt efter lite nya "bloggmänniskor" för att bredda mig lite! Bloggvänner skriver jag ännu inte, för det är ju inte alls säkert att vi gillar varanadra! (ler)
Jo, jag gillar ju din fina blogg så det är ju alltid en början!
Fast min blogg är nog lite "svårare" att gilla, kanske?
Ja, som sagt det här är en "fuling", jag ska faktiskt knåpa ihop en massa kommentarer för att se om det leder till något "nytt" idag och för framtiden!
Har bloggat i något år nu och tragiskt nog så börjar en del "lägga av nu", sorgligt och ledsamt, men förståligt, det "kostar på" att blogga, både tid och möda! Har haft några bloggpauser själv, men de har bara varit i några dagar! (ler)
Nej, nu ska jag inte plåga dig och ditt kommentarsfält med mer text!
Som sagt fin och trevlig blogg har du, men det vet du förstås redan!
Ha det så bra som det bara går!
Kram ifrån en som kallar sig för Oumberlige Peter, men anses kanske mest vara Omöjlig!

Tracey said...

I'm glad you're having so much fun stocking your etsy shop! It is so fun to hunt for treasures!! Are you having trouble selling a lot of your items...wanting to keep them for yourself??!! That's the problem with having a shop :)
