Quick Etsy Shop Update...... And jewelry!

Etsy Shop Update

Here's a quick etsy shop update that I've worked on for past few days! I might somehow be related to the sloth animacules when it comes to shop updates and frequent blog posts but when you don't see me here just hop over my etsy or ebay shop and see what I am up to and ask me anything. Cause believe in "It is a definite NO if one doesn't ask!!! :)

On the otherhand my friends I've made history tonight by simply reading instructions from Adobe and learned how to create a collage on my new software "Photoshop Elements 8" in just an hour! I'm feeling a little self-respect because I could work through it without further assistance. I think the photos could have been larger for better viewing but I'm pleased with this collage for it being my first one.  What do you guys think?!

P.s. I have some beautiful old Vintage/Antique 1900s oval and 1800s heart locket pendants and other collectibles of vintage jewelry ending this Sunday on ebay at 9:00pm Central Time. Take a peek!

The rhythm of summer time ...................

Summer time and the living is easy. Fish are jumping and the cotton is definitely high as far laundry concerns in my case. I'm still washing & ironing the finds. Just a quick post to let you all know I'm not buried underneath all the clothes from my last post.

On another note, get an eyeful of my pale legs! I'm wearing shorts for the first this year and they seriously need to atleast match my arms. Looks like it is time for the tanning lotion again!

Quote of the day:
I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer.  My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music.  It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.  ~Violette Leduc, Mad in Pursuit
