~ Etsy Treasure Hunting & What's New

It isn't easy some days to find what you might be looking for on Etsy, but it's worth the bother if you find a treasure. It's exciting to come across something special.
I found this artist a little while back and jumped at the chance to have one of her pieces. I was cheap, it was on sale. But her prices are very low anyway. Take a look at her sold items as well. I'm sure if you see something that really strikes you, she would be happy to similar piece for you.

And Victoria has just added some new chair paintings. I love chairs! 6/25

The temps are hitting near 100 (which is NOT like 100 in the desert!) and I'm running around for 10 hours a day it seems. It has taken months to close a refi for Sweet Daughter. Since she can't spend hours on the phone or computer at work, I've been doing all the work I can for her. She has great credit, and is staying with the same company and it still was 10 times the work and wait than when she first got her mortgage. If "they" had done this to begin with everyone, we wouldn't be in the financial mess that has hit us all.

In the meantime, we have met with the granite guy to do her kitchen, picked out the sink and faucet for there. It will be done soon.

And we have had our consultations with the sod removal/installation guy, the move-the-irrigation man, and the paver dude! So by the end of this week, she should have her new backyard. It is a very small space, and once you start adding it all up, you are happy it is. And of course it makes me grumpy that if she had bought her house this year, you and I would be giving her $8k free with no pay back. But that's just eh way it is, and we can't do anything about that now.
So I'm breathing in deeply and letting it go. :)

That's what been keeping me busy lately, besides running around after you know who, as seen in the last post. And Cody said Thank You! for all the sweet comments about him.

Hope you are all staying cooler than we are!
See Y'all Soon!


  1. I just read your post on how to age white cabinets! Thank you so much. I am getting ready to do some bathroom cabs and need a little advice if you don't mind. My cabs are already painted an off white/ cream color and the paint is oil based. What difference will this make? Would you still use the same product? Thanks so much.

  2. Hi Donna,

    Glad to hear things are going well for your daughter...what a good Mamma you are !!!

    The USA is a changing I fear !!

    Love that piece you got on Etsy...

    It has been so cool and rainy here so unlike our normal weather...some sun and warmth for the end of the week they say woo hoo

    I hear it's quite HOT down your way...

    Stay cool,
    Kathy :)

  3. Our temps are similar, including the humidity. We're going to the lake early tomorrow, hopefully by 4AM. We were going to try for this evening, but we would be driving into the sun, for about 1/2 the way. Surely it will be cooler before daylight tomorrow. Did you hear? Missouri is one of the states to have a cooler than normal summer!;-)

    Sounds like all is going well with your daughter's new home fixups and Mr Cody!!
