Every time I have a sale on Etsy, my phone goes “cha-ching”. It’s a lovely sound. Sometimes when it “chings” at work, someone will ask, “What is that”?

This is a photo of … Continue reading porch rebuild

It is truly sensory overload, and I have a hard time getting my mind to settle down and concentrate on what I came to look for. I always end up going home with things that were … Continue reading flea market finds
From a previous post, I shared that I was revamping my office and making it into the room where I take photos for my Etsy business. I sold the top of the hutch, but kept the bottom.
