loading up the shop

I’m getting ready for my trip to Wisconsin.  This will be the first time back since my mom’s passing.
I don’t know how I’ll be feeling... but it sure will be weird being in the house she died in and I’m bound to go through a lot of changes,  but I have some fun things planned and I’m ready to get out of the big city and be in my homeland which I miss, especially in the summer.   I am going to see one of my favorite bands, The BoDeans, in Oshkosh with my brother.  I also have a Blues Festival planned for a weekend so things ought to be pretty cool.



So in preparation, I’m working non-stop to fill my Etsy shop before I leave.  I just park myself in front of the fan because now it’s just too hot to sit outside.  This old 1920s house is hotter than a pistol inside.




More bangle stacks cause the ladies just can’t seem
to get enough of them....

and they keep selling..

and that makes me very happy.









I made many of these while watching a Marilyn Monroe
marathon on TCM...Bus Stop, Seven Year Itch
(The Sheboygan Conservatory of Music) and How to
Marry a Millionaire.

In closing, here’s a heart shaped
pee spot in the litter box...
I just couldn’t resist...

I like your bead bangle stacks, and have a good visit home; you are wise to have some fun plans set up, as being in the house will be strange.
And that pee stain, now that is weird!

Your bangles are fabulous as always.

Still laughing at the pee spot! I found one in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head once which coincidentally one of our cats has the same shape on his back when he lies down.
