A warm welcome to new followers - I hope that this blog is interesting for you. When I get myself organised I will have a 'giveaway do dah' (keep changing my mind as to what it should be!)
I fear that I convey the impression of living in a junk shop so here in an attempt to redress that I am showing my nice 'new to me, even though I have had it a few years' suitcase - all shiny like a conker! I took the children to visit one of my sisters for a couple of days so I was hoping that this suitcase would take on the appearance of Grace Kelly's suitcase in 'Rear Window' (I marvel at how her clothes puff out of that case in the film)
If you can identify and remember using the article top left you can join my gang (the password code will be the usual 'Your name is Chalkie White and I claim my prize' - no code, no entry!)
So a Pakawa suitcase still being used many years after being produced - a perfect size, no wobbliness (mind you we like and need wobbliness don't we. If this was perfect I would not dare smother it with fabricos!).
A bit dusty here I notice!
Now this is my sister's house - my sister who pretends that she does not collect anything....this is a very, very small sample of her china.....
And her china brooches...
PS - I have just got another job on top of my current one (my first day today!). This will mean that (in theory...cough, cough) I will have less time here but more time being 'productive' in an financial sense!! Shop never did get under way...Etsy shelves remain empty...Folksy remains an aspiration...closing the suitcases....switching off the sewing machine.....
burning the embroideries (What do you think I am - crazy!!!!). Will still sell things on ebay from time to time but to be honest selling the bags and purses that I have made was never going to be a money spinner was it - often at 4.99 and still unsold I am not exactly a main competitor! Also Jenny perhaps you should 'fess up to withdrawing things from sale because you feel that they are not very good - confidence always wafer thin. I do marvel at the success of others and how all items are 'sold out' - magico.
Back to teaching my dear human biology amongst other thing. My work ethic means that I never like to turn down an opportunity. Realise that I am very lucky to have a job in the first place in these current climes.
