You just have to take a little bit of time and go visit a really pretty treasury over at Etsy.
Hill Top Times featured my, "either you love it or hate it," vintage cake saver. It fits right in with all the other lovely items. This is a must see.
I would really appreciate any advice on what camera to purchase since my little ole' Sony Cyber Shot broke. I can still take photos but I can't view them. Ya, sort of a vintage feel. You don't know what you're getting until you download them. I know the quality of my photos could and should improve if I keep blogging and doing the Etsy thing... everyone would appreciate that. But what do I get, a Cannon Rebel, another Sony? Help.
Until then, enjoy the day and stay warm and busy.

Okay, I am dreaming of a white Christmas AND a new camera.

Ah, last night I was a volunteer at Santa's Workshop at the annual Festival of Trees here in Pocatello. After a long day teaching, my dear friend Steffanie, fellow teacher and I braved the crowds as children came to the workshop for fun crafts. Totally awesome teens from various service groups helped too. Steffanie and I were the supervisors and the teacher in us came to the forefront to help the little kids create. We had a ball.
We were across from who else...? Santa, in the flesh! I got such a kick out of the serious expressions lil' guys had as they mounted his knee in utter confidence, requesting only what was really at the top of their lists.
Like a dork I forgot my camera and didn't get one picture of the trees. I spent all day trying to recreate a tree I saw with lots of natural elements. I mean all day- between laundry and sorting through Etsy stuff that is scattered from one place to the other in my small abode, I spent an entire day doing and then redoing. To my dismay, I ran out of lights at the bottom of the tree. I had the last strand on and then saw a bare wire- Oh my! Corrected the problem, plugged them in and suddenly the outlet wouldn't work. So for now, I have a half-@#$* tree and a bright orange extension cord running the full length of the living room to the nearest working outlet. Let us pray that I get the tree finished and take a decent picture to post...
