Chippy White Goodies...

Phew...I made it to the weekend. What a busy week! 

Had a roof leak, but I won't go there. It's all good now. In other news my ETSY shop has been a roaring success! OK, well...what I call roaring i'm sure would be considered piddly by most. 16 sales in a little over a week! Thank you SO much to any of you reading this who bought a little something from my shop, I know a couple of you found me here on my blog first. I don't know how you other ETSY people do it! It is so much more work than I expected. Crazy fun hard work. Some people have over 1,000 items in their shop. Where do they store it all? It amazes me!

Inventory was starting to go down so of course, I had to go shopping. Oh the drudgery of it...:). Seriously though, you all know I love hunting for hidden treasure in the bowels of dingy antique booths and moth ball scented thrift stores! I live for it. Lurking around like Gollum searching for "myyyy precioussss". 

 And I KNOW you do too, that's why we're friends! I find it strangely relaxing. Isn't it the best feeling to wile away the hours rummaging through rusty old kitchen utensils and neatly starched vintage linens, envisioning your grandmother in her heyday, standing at the sink in an apron and beehive hairdo, peeling potatoes? It's a romanticized version of farmhouse life of course. I love my dish washer and air conditioning!

Anyways, my first find is something I'm seriously considering keeping for myself (I actually want to keep everything I buy!). Aren't they dreamy?

Here's the rest ...

All of these items are available in my shop!

Have a glorious weekend, and thank you for popping in to visit!

Welcome to Week 37 at The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

Welcome to Week 37
The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!
1 Party, 4 Blogs

Your Host this week is . . .
Linsey at The Farmhouse Porch

***Warning***I am about to shamelessly self promote my new little ETSY shop. If you wish you may scroll straight down to the party and avoid my commercial. I will keep it super short though, promise.

I am so excited to announce the opening of The Farmhouse Porch ETSY shop

I've got my original oil paintings AND old shabby, farmhouse-y things for sale. 
I would be honored for you to stop by.

Click HERE to see it!

OK, let's get moving right along to the Cowgirl Up party

 First up--- thank you to everyone who entered our Giveaway last week, 
sponsored by Appliance Online
And the winner of the $50 gift card to is 
who left her party comment over at  the Farmhouse Porch. 
Teresa- be on the look-out for an email about how to claim your prize!

My picks from last week's party are...

Homemade pumpkin dog treats by What We Keep. With the price of dog treats being more than I spend on human treats, this recipe is probably healthier for the pup and the pocketbook than store bought!

I really enjoyed looking at the vintage Girl Scout patches shared by Organized Clutter. I just completed training to be a Girl Scout leader this week, and I still have all of my pins and badges from scouting. Fun! 

Vintage Charm by Mimi shared this beautiful shabby bench transformation

Small Home Big Start tempted my tastebuds with this  (lower calorie) crustless pumpkin Pie with Streusel Topping

The The Loud Silence revealed her beautifully refinished buffet. I love it!

And for the grand finale, a kitchen tour by White Lace Cottage,  I am such a fan of her shabby farmhouse style!

Let's see whut-cha got!

So many thanks to those of you who have added me to your favorites list. I'm a busy bee this week! I went through half of the Cowgirl up! links last night and I plan on going through the other half tonight. So much to see and do and write and photograph (and cook, tend, clean, sort...)

Life is busy, but good.
