A few fun projects...

I just love this little toy bin that I did up. It turned out so cute! I've been having a ton of fun making things like this. It's always fun to alter something ordinary and turn it into a "one-of-a-kind" treasure.
This is a picture of another one of my fun little projects... There's no place like home...

What do you think of my pink couch?

Oh, what a fun pink fainting couch this is! It folds down into a bed and is O, so comfy. Perfect for a girly space! I couldn't help sharing. I had my upholsterer do it up in this vintage, hot pink, heavy fabric. I did a couple of chairs in it a few years ago and they flew out the door. We'll see what happens here. I'm having a lot of fun playing with it, though. The right person will come along and fall in love with it and take it home to play with herself... she'll be a lucky girl!

Lollishops, Etsy and Ebay, here we come!!!

Now that my wonderful sister, Lisa, is back in Iowa and living right next door to me, it's time we put our skills to use together and get going on the web. Lisa is a very detail oriented person and I am a creative person... our skills together compliment each other quite nicely. I have been creating and she is ready to get started detailing my creativeness... lucky me!!!
We're planning to start by listing a few things on Ebay and Etsy to get started and my account is being considered for Lollishops. We hope to wow the world with some of my hand-made creations and with the many vintage things that I sell in my storefront. We've got a lot of work ahead of us, but we are determined to "make-it-work". If you have any suggestions for us, we would love to have any feedback we can.
One of my goals is to keep my blog updated weekly and to show a sampling of what we've been working on. My new laptop should be arriving today and I'm so excited. It will help a ton to have a mobile computer that I can take to the shop and put pictures on easily.
Lisa and I used to do Ebay together back in it's "heyday" and we're looking forward to giving Etsy a try and especially the new and up-and-coming Lollishops site. If you have other suggestions for us on where we should list, bring 'em on!!!
