BUSY DOING

Well hello there! What have you been up to?! Me myself, I’ve been busy “doing”.  Doing what exactly?  Well for starters, I started painting what will soon be my office.

Crappy picture, right?  Well I took it with my phone.  The paint was wet and the light sucks in this room.  I’m painting the room the same color as my kitchen and family room.  I forgot the color.  I’ll tell ya later! 

I originally thought I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted in the space, but ya’ll know me.  Nothing in my head is solid! But when I found this piece (below) at the Goodwill last week, I knew the direction I was headed in.

It includes everything I want for the space… COLOR! oh and pinkWinking smile

Father’s Day came and went and my hubby was spoiled.  Well not really, but the boys and I did good.  Here is his gift

My etsy shop is doing great! I met my personal goal already.  Yes, my personal goal was to sell 5 things this year.  I did that yesterday. You may think that’s a pretty low goal, but I thought it was a stretch! I never realized how much I’d enjoy packing and shipping my pieces.

I also enjoy when my sis Deitra finds me new inventory and how she swears it won’t sale

And because I’m crazy like that, I’m starting yet another etsy shop! This shop will be totally different than my current one.  I’m selling bracelets!

That’s just a sample of what I’ve done so far. I’ll talk more about them when I launch the shop.

I know I haven’t been doing much blogging lately, but the boys are out of school and it’s just hard being glued to the computer with them running around.  My phone is practically glued to my hands so a quick tweet or post on instagram or FB is so much easier for me.

So yeah, that’s it.  I’ve been “doing”.  If you have instagram, you can find me under my name or Swoon Worthy Vintage!

What have you been “Doing”?!?!

LATEST FINDS & 15% OFF

A while ago I wrote a post about collecting globes and other things and how I’ve been trying to find some while thrifting.  Who would have thought that I would come across two in the same day?!

ETSY SHOP LAUNCH!

Hi everyone! Thanks for your patience as I took a little break to hang with the kiddos and hubs.  While I was away, I also had time to do something else.  I opened my etsy shop!!!

I know I’ve been all over the place with my swoon worthy ventures, but after giving it much thought, I realized that my passion is shopping for vintage home accessories and furniture.  What I’ve also realized is that many people love the thought of having vintage pieces in their homes, but don’t have the desire to “hunt” them down. 

I still have more items to list, but I am so excited to share this with you I couldn’t stand to wait another day!

Making my shop affordable was a big concern to me.  So while everything may not come across as a “steal”, I assure you that the prices are fair.

Now for those who haven’t clicked over yet to see what I have listed, here is a teaser

Thank you so much for your support in all of my endeavors.  I hope that you see something you like today! Don’t forget that I am still listing items so if you don’t see something you want or that works in your home right now, keep checking back.  Also, feel free to email me if you’re looking for something in particular…. I may just have itSmile
