Just a Little give-away!

Img_9492 Well I think it’s time for a little Flea Market Studio give-away! I was going to wait for my 100th sell on my Etsy, but it seems to have slowed down , right when I decided to do it! How funny is that??  I cant wait that long I am at 93, heck it could take a while! So if you post a little hello, I will pick the winner on Sunday! What else?? Ive had one of my best girlfriend in town for a little visit. I just miss my friends in Los Angeles so much! We had tons of good food, wine and great talks! She is not a Thrifty or Artsy girl at all…..! But our friend Amy Hanna is a very big inspiration and good friend to me! I showed her this picture of the two of us and made fun of that background in the photo! boy do we look like little girls!Amylil We were both such  trouble makers with our boys at that time, two rascals, hmmmmmm I wonder where My Daughter gets it from! This picture was taken in 1992……… where did the time go???? Well since I didn’t get to go Thrifting with my friend, We went shoe shopping instead…….. here are my new Kicks!Img_9494I love them! As soon as that girl left today, I did sneak by and stop at 3 of my Thrift stores and here is what I found!Img_9483 Img_9489I scored with Vintage fabrics today!! Yummy colors and some have velvet in them, also found more tins….. my collection is getting out of control with them! the tins were 99 cents each! I am also working on some of my old books, Ive put them down for a while and now are starting them up again, here is the cover of the book and some pages that I did last year…..Img_9497_2 Img_9498_2 That is about all for now!

    Don’t worry about your sales being slower lately, mine have been too, and I have been watching others and their sales seem a little slower lately too.
    Speaking of sales, when do you think you will be listing the other junk books you were working on? I keep checking every day…:0)

  92. Carola Says:

    You are both so beautiful! So if your friend Amy Hanna is not artsy/thrifty I guess that she is not the same person which is Pam Garrisons best friend? http://www.amyhanna.etsy.com/ Just today I saw the photo of her and Amy Hanna at Artfest on Pam’s blog and I even think they look alike just a bit older in Pam’s pic. Oh heck! I always seem to come too late when someone posts a give away.
