It’s Been a Busy Month

Sorry everyone that I’ve been missing this past month.  It’s been busy.  Work, son’s baseball, and now, a new addition to the family.  Nope, not a baby, LOL, as I’m not having any more kids, but a new puppy!

Let me introduce my son’s new beagle pup, named Mojeaux!  For all of you not from South Louisiana, it’s pronounced “mojo”.

Isn’t he cute?  He’s a Lemon Spotted Beagle.  My son wants to train him to be a rabbit dog, but as things are looking, he’s going to be a lap dog!  In two days he has been kennel-trained, though since he is only 7 weeks old, the house-training is ongoing.  When Mojeaux gets sleepy, all you have to do is say, Go to Bed, and he goes and curls up in his kennel!

So, it’s like having a baby.  Regular feedings, “mistake” cleanups, getting up twice a night (though that is son’s job right now), playing constantly, it’s all that. 

Now, I do have a LOT of auction finds to share with you, a miniature supply swap I was involved in (lots of goodies there), and just things in general, but will do that (hopefully) when I am on vacation next week.  Of course, son leaves to go visit relatives for two weeks, so I will have puppy duty to share with hubby. 

Maybe I can also get some crafting in – currently, I’m working on some miniature flowers, a dollhouse, a miniature “wicker” coffee table, and a couple other mini things as I can find the time.  I need to get some RL sized stuff created, my selling blog and my Etsy stores updated, plus I need a pair of round nose and chain nose pliers so I can get some jewelry made (got a few ideas in mind, though all I’ve ever made before are anklets).  Not enough time nor money in the day to do everything.  Sigh.

Until later…………………………..

A Few Finds of Late

As I think I’ve mentioned, I’ve discovered On-Line LIVE auctions.  Here are a few of my wins as of late:

Vintage Pins – LOVE the White Dragonfly


Box of Vintage Dollies


Vintage Hollywood Ephemera of Grace George


And of Gladys George


Two French Cartoon magazines from 1907 – a little rough, put HEY, they are FRENCH and from 1907!!!


Of course, couldn’t pass up these fab synthetic pearls. What girl could?


There is MUCH more!  Talk about blew my budget, but with such goodies out there (and several Etsy shops and a selling blog to stock) what’s a junkin’ girl to do?????  Though I am staying away from the auctions this month.  Hubby is taking me junkin’ in New Orleans toward the end of the month and I want to make sure I have the funds available to enjoy myself.

I’ll be sharing more with you in the future. 

Until Later………………………..
