My Year In Pictures: November Week 3

Sometimes my weekly photo subjects are selected in advance so each blog post shares only a small peek into our days and sometimes the collection of images tell a story all on their own.  This week I think the story of old vs new came through pretty clear as we spent the majority of our time making room for furniture from my grandparent’s estate while finishing some new listings for our Etsy shop.  Cleaning, moving, making, photographing and listing filled each open moment and left us with a welcome sense of accomplishment by the end of Saturday afternoon.  I have a few additional photos of Grandma Emma’s things that may appear in future weeks and I’m happy to report a red and white basket sold within hours of its social media debut.  If you’re looking for a handmade holiday gift they are in our Etsy store and ready to ship now. 🙂

I’ll be back with a new post in a few days but if you don’t want to wait please join us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

My Year In Pictures: October Week 3

I know I felt scattered and pushed for time last week so I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that the resulting set of images is a random grab bag of topics but I’m still a little impressed I managed to include dark shadows, Halloween decorations, ugly Christmas sweaters, a Lego Liberty Bell and a grumpy dog all in the same post.  Whew!  It looks like the only unifying thread is the fact that they all happened to me which is in fact the point of this daily photo exercise so I hope you enjoy the gallery.

The week started with a shot in the dark of street light shadows through my front door followed by two Halloween candles we shipped from our Etsy store.  Finn has decided the best way to survive this wet and stormy season is to sleep with one eye open and John continues his quest to take over the house with spooky vignettes.  We still have two holidays to check off before Christmas but the ugly sweaters are ready and waiting on store shelves however if you’re like me and want nothing to do with Christmas shopping let’s both be distracted by this amazing reproduction of the Liberty Bell created entirely from Lego pieces.
