I Saved Mr. Owl

Hi! Everyone! I absolutely love Christmas & I'm sad to see it go, but now..back to business as usual! I got a new digital cam and new computer for Christmas! Woohoo! Soo happy about that! I wanted to share a picture of an vintage owl I found while helping my husband tear down an old house. We tear them down for the heart pine wood to use in our cabinet shop where we live. I saved the little cutie from being crushed or trashed, took him home & tried my hand at antique washing. I think that he is adorable! He has a opening in the back and can hold a standard votive or even a tea light candle. I used grey/blue & antique white paint. What do you think?

Literally. Since I found it in September of this year (from a person on the Ebay forums..hehehe) I have found so many wonderful, creative, artistic 5 Star Sellers. I have found new meaning in the word "Handmade". When I thought of handmade in the past I thought of my Mema's quilts & knit hats. Yes, there are a lot of knits and such on etsy, but Oh My! EVERYTHING I have came across is so beautiful & creatively done! I guess I'm writing this to share my love for etsy with anyone I can! KUDOS to you all!!

Dear chasityclack,

I have to tell you a funny story. I bought the mini cinnamon tarts from you a while back. And I love them by the way. Today, my mother-in-law came for a visit and saw them. Thinking they were candy, she took a bite. I guess they smell much better than they taste! LOL I thought you would get a good laugh from that true story. Soon, I will be ordering some more tarts from you. Maybe I need to add a note that they are NOT edible. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!!!!! Debbie

♥♥October Featured Seller♥♥

I want to share some of my favorite Etsy Shops in a monthly feature! We all work very hard on our handmade, handcrafted items & I want to show my appreciation! This month's featured shop & seller is BubblesUpByBethieB. She is a very talented "artist" I would say, of handmade soap. I just love this Scrumptious & Spicy Cinnamon Coffee bar I purchase this month. It smells SOOO good! The overall appearance of her soaps drawn me to her shop. I was so excited when it arrived! So get over there & check out all those Yummy Soaps!

This is what BubblesUpByBethieB has to say:
I produce handcrafted soaps in the beautiful town of Skaneateles, located in upstate New York. Bubbles Up! soaps are fun, fragrant, and good for your skin - they have no artificial lathering agents like SLS or SLES, and no propylene glycol. Just yummy ingredients like real yogurt, molasses, vegetable and plant oils, fruit, goats milk, and raw honey straight from the hive.

All soaps arrive wrapped and ready for gift giving. Soaps purchased as gifts can include a personalized gift note - just let me know. I love making fun, playful soaps for children and parties - no order is too big or too small!

Cinnamon Bun Wax Tarts

These cuties are flying off the shelves! I wanted to share these little Cinnamon Buns in my blog. They are all handmade using as much fragrance oil as the wax will allow. Due to the handmade nature no two tarts are alike. I place a quarter in the pic so you can get an idea of their size. I sell these in sets of 25 buns. You can find them in my Etsy shop now!~ Cinnamon Bun Tarts

These tarts are SUPER cute & SUPER strong! Smells just like fresh baked Cinnamon Buns right outta the oven! Each tart has real cinnamon baked right in, then drizzled with gooey butter cream icing..Mmmmm!
