I love mail delivery time. I always have. I remember as a little girl, running down our lane to check the mail. I’d see the mail man come and I would race to get to the box first. We knew our mailman, he went to our church, and we thought that was pretty cool. Sometimes if he had a package too big to fit in the box at the end of the lane, he’d drive up and honk the horn, and someone would run out and get the package from him.
How about a giveaway?! If you like candles (and it IS the season for burning candles!) and if you like jewelry, and surprises then you will be delighted with what I’m giving away today! Rafflecoptor is at the bottom of this post.
Recently a friend asked me if I would like some homemade soap to try out. Of course! I love a good bar of soap, and homemade is great. Especially if it’s homemade that I didn’t have to make 😀 I’ve used up one bar of soap and am on my second and now I want to share with you what it is, where you can get some, and why you should!
The Old Arcana. It’s a restaurant in Arcanum, Ohio, and it adjoins the storefront I am now putting my vintage and handmade items in. I posted yesterday about my storefront – and totally forgot to add the location to that post! It’s Arcanum, Ohio peeps! Google will lead you right to it. Siri will not recognize the word Arcanum but your map on your phone will find it just fine if you type it in. Guess when Siri was recording they forgot to include some of the off-the-beaten-path towns 😀
I’m finally getting back to the blog to share the pics I took of some of the other vendors at The Summer Market. I’ve been being lazy – I just cannot get my energy back and my creativity flowing much. Hopefully soon.
I’ve been having requests for a slipcover tutorial. And I’m happy to tell you that it is in the works. Hopefully very soon. I happen to have aquired a couple really nice, vintage wingbacks for our home and they need to be slipcovered. My plan is to do the best I can getting photos of the whole process with the first one and do a video tutorial with the second. I’ve never worked with videos much so this will be a trial and error thing I’m sure! I’ll get going on those as soon as I decide what fabric I am using for the covers.
