I got a Makeover...

I've been looking for the perfect update to my brand for my online stores and my retail and I found a great designer on Etsy at OceanfrontStudio.

Neil did a great job adapting one of his wonderful creations to my sites. And he gave wonderful customer service, as well.

If you're contemplating a new look or your first set-up, pop by OceanfrontStudio!

Never stop learning...

Whoa! Everyday's a new adventure in blog-land!

You start looking at one thing and you just never know where you're going to wind up...
I've found so many cool things (can I still say "cool"?) I just don't know where to start. Or stop, for that matter.

The Vintage Village lead to Twitter....Twitter lead to which reminded me that I needed to upgrade my Flickr space and then, well I'm not sure where I went next!

So, if like me, you find yourself somewhere(here) and you're not sure how you got here, or where you're going...take a look to the right and check out someplace you didn't plan to go.

Like Helen Keller said... "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."

Something New...

I was looking for a pretty, fun identy for my page on The Vintage Village (more about that later) and came across someone with a great little site who made this wonderful banner and a sweet avatar for me. I'm partial to birds....okay, especially pretty birds. My mom and dad loved birds and we always had feeders all around the yard. I've passed it on to my children and now my two little grandsons who love to sit and watch the birds. It's a great cuddly, quiet time thing to do.

Anyway... you can find LisasMenagerie on Etsy at
Lisa did a great job, was quick and gave great customer service! She has some great things so stop by and see her!

Now as for finding The Vintage Village...I must admit, I had some help. The creator of The Vintage Village is my cousin, Lora. We come from a family of "vintage lovers". My favorite things in my home are an eclectic collection(oh...say that three times fast!) of old family things, things my mom and I found together when I was young and things I've picked up here and there. I love the pieces. I love the stories and the mysteries. I love the connections. I love the eco-friendliness of it. And, I love the memories.

Take a peek at The Vintage Village on Ning if you haven't already. You can click on the link to the right.
