New Stuff on Etsy

I haven't been able to get around lately as well as I should. I fell on the cement floor of a restaurant - causing an extreme bruise to my knee cap. So, it will be about another 6-8 weeks before it is healed. The restaurant has been very cooperative and understanding. Except, it has caused great pain and kept me from getting around like I normally do. All I can say to restaurants is to keep your floors clean - grease and water are really not meant for floors!

Since I am slightly immobile, I have not been capable of creating and getting items all the items I want loaded onto Etsy. However, I have finally decided to buy a new camera. Yes, I was told by a little gal at Best Buy I owned a "dinosaur" digital camera. That's OK with me really, but I need to get really detailed pictures of my items and I cannot with my "dinosaur"! Every time I turn around, my camera's batteries are dead. I told the little gal she should see my cell phone! She got a great laugh when she saw that one. So we are going today to get a new camera - then very soon, a new sewing machine that will actually make an automatic buttonhole! Little things make me happy, what can I say?

The snowbirds are leaving SW Florida now. The streets are beginning to free up a bit. It is still beautiful here, however. The rainy season has not arrived yet, so it is a great time to lie in the sun and rest my beaten-up knee. (I know - the sun is bad for you - but I use sun protection!)

Do you love Doll Clothes?

I love doll clothes.  In fact, I love anything to do with vintage dolls.  I collect doll dishes, Barbie dolls and their clothes, doll aluminum baking items - pretty much anything!  I even have a collection of doll shoes.  A bit strange - but then again, that's me.   I have listed several on Etsy - Henny Penny Mercantile.  I also have taken a picture of the first button necklace I made.  This one is staying with me!  If you would like something like this .. just let me know.  I also made them in aqua, coral, purple, pink and lime green.  I have taken them off Etsy to sell privately.

Since the batteries in my camera are dead again ... I will list more tomorrow!  Have a great day!

Button Necklaces

I have deleted these necklaces from my Etsy site.  I have decided to sell them privately.  If you would like to purchase one, please contact me at  I am sorry to cause you any problems.  A store contacted me and I would love to go that route regarding selling!

I am going to be listing many other - hopefully interesting - things soon.  Just need to get the pics loaded and we will go from there.  Doll dresses, state tags, etc.

Again, contact me directly if you would like to purchase a necklace you saw for what seems to be a minute!

Thanks again to all of you for your understanding and stay tuned.

Notforgotten Farm Patterns

I am a huge fan of Lori Brechlin's work.  Her company, Notforgotten Farm, designs the cutest and most beautiful cross stitch patterns.  This is called "Ah, 'tis Spring"! 

Eye Candy

Decided to show you some previews of the bottles I will be offering soon.  They are a little hard to see, but I will be loading them onto Etsy soon.

I also decided to show some vignettes I have around my house.  I just love to create little displays ... just to look at.  Looking at a bowl full of white buttons just makes me happy.  I know ...."I live in my own little world, but it's OK, "they" know me there"!

New Stuff on Etsy!!

I have decided to start blogging again.  I have been very busy creating a new product - button necklaces.  I have them listed on Etsy under Henny Penny Mercantile. 

I have also decided to start showing all of you the beauty that surrounds me here in Florida.  So, I am going to grab my camera and start shooting the beautiful things that I see everyday.

I promise to be a little more diligent about posting.  :)
