i can feel the love...

I love Etsy...

and it feels so good this morning to know that Etsy loves me,  too!

I woke up yesterday morning to find this in my inbox..

A few of my favorite things...white..grey...silver...and more I decided to keep reading...

I am blushing...because that is my bed up there on display! My bed??

Are you kidding me?

I am sure most of you don't even know I have my own business painting furniture. I sell to a number of designers, stores and my favorite...the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles, IL...May-October.

I don't even tell anyone I sell online...but I guess now my secret it out! I have only listed about 6 pieces of pathetic...thats why I never say anything. Not much of a show to put on with 6 pieces! I am embarrassed to even mention it, to be honest with you.

I am so busy with custom orders...getting ready for my first show in the Spring...and trying to finish my own house...things just never seem to make it to Etsy. I put a piece up here or there just for fun.

I want to do more...I really do.

But picture taking in a nightmare for me...but thats a whole other post. Thanks to my new BFF Tara, I think I may be getting the hang of indoor shots in my "shady" watch out! If I do figure this camera out I am going to wear you out on home shots, project makeovers and furniture listings!

So where am I going with this...I am blushing because I was featured in an Etsy treasury again and I feel a proper 'thank you' is in order! THANK YOU SUSAN! That makes 6 features so far...and I have only listed 6 pieces. How funny is that? I am really thinking...why me?? There are so many fabulous things on are you finding the girl with only 6 things posted?

How awesome are those girls out there in Estyland, anyway??? They sure know how to make a girl in the middle of IL freezing her tail off with a paintbrush in her hand feel soooo good!

I feel like I need to give a little speech like Sally Field..."you like me, you really like me!"

Just take a look at the fantastic company my little bed is keeping up there! Those mercury glass bottles make me want to pass out...and that camera is the most fabulous thing...I just may have to have that for a shelf in my office!

So again, THANK YOU SUSAN...maybe you have just lit a fire under this girl to get her act together and take more time to make her Etsy store pretty...and actually fill it up! Funny how we can do such little things in life, and they end up meaning so much. This has meant so much to trivial as it may be. Sometimes we just need a boost!

Happy Friday, girls.

Wishing you all a fun, sun filled weekend!
