Winter Blues Begin

The holidays are over and it is time to put all the decorations away and get ready for the winter blues :( I do not like the long period between now and spring break. This year I have my Etsy shop and more vintage/antique hunting to keep my spirits up, though.

Speaking of Etsy, I am looking forward to listing a load of springtime goodies including yellow depression glass (cups, saucers, plates), embroidered floral napkins and tablecloths/scarves/runners, vintage children's and adults sewing patterns, and of course more china. I hope to be able to restock my cache of the popular 1940s tablecloths in the upcoming weeks, as well. I am also always on the lookout for unique vintage items on my adventures down country roads and in county auction houses.

In the spring, I have high hopes of turning our master bathroom into a French-meets-American farmhouse abode. I am on my way with the pre-existing pale pink basin inset in an antique dresser and matching pale pink toilet and shower stall. You know what they say, "When life gives you lemons......" The floor is a medium to light color wood (put in the 1920s I think) when the room was added to serve as a bedroom. There is wood trim, crown molding, and bead board that was installed in the early 1990s when the small bedroom was tranformed into a 3/4 bathroom. I am hoping this is going to be an "easy" makeover. We'll see.

I've added some photos from the Christmas holidays below. I didn't take any of the inside for some reason but hubs took plenty of the outside after our first big snow. Thanks for reading and remember to visit my Etsy shop at for gifts for yourself or someone else. If you do not see something you are looking for, ask because I just may have it.
