Busy Busy Busy

That is what we have been since abt Wed around here. I FINALLY kicked myself into gear and started sewing again. I do enjoy it immensely but when there is so much other fun stuff to be doing like decorating the house I have a hard time sitting down and sewing. It is a catch 22 though. Sewing allows me to feed my insatiable addiction to HobLob and HomeGoods so I knew if I wanted to implement any of my wishful thinkings I needed to get it together. This evening I started listing a bunch of new Spittle bibs and as it turns out that is all it took to drive more traffic to my little Etsy shop! In 30 minutes of listing I already have a sale. Thank you!
This is my absolute fave right now! I so wish I had a lil' girlie girl who could wear it.

This fabric worked out nicely as well. I love the green background and who doesn't love um a sock monkey!

This one makes me sad. It is my very last bib...last anything I have in this fabric. It is called Summer In The City and I LOVE it. It is no longer in production and ya can't find it anywhere. I look every now and then but no luck.

So other than sewing, Open House, and everyday stuff. the fam has just been hanging out. Today The Hubster and I split up. He took Oldest and I Littliest. Littliest and I had fun shopping at the other HomeGoods...not really, they are not all the same in the least...then to Sephora for my Bare Minerals which I buy abt every 4-5 months. I just purchase the starter kit so I can get all new brushes. We then went to a place called Sam & Moon Home. It had some wonderful items but a bit pricey. Some you could get at HobLob so why bother. I did get a set of initial coasters, an initial garden flag and a fleur de leis garden flag holder. I had been wanting the flag forever and was excited to find it for just $11!
This evening after listing some things in my Etsy shop I did a little window shopping. I found this on the local yard sale site for just $50!

It is a bit dated but I saw somewhere in blogland where somebody redid a hutch and took off the moldings on the doors and it came back thru but was really pretty. I wish I knew who that was. I emailed the gal for more pics of the doors to see if it would be even possible. $50 is a good deal I think. I am actually on the hunt for a secretary that can turn into a china cabinet but so far I can not get the one I want for any less than $150.
I also saw this listing. Isn't it great! All they are asking is $25 OBO!! I would sooo love to have this for my sewing/crafty room. I can see it now distressed in a white or green or robins egg blue.
So what do you think of those two pieces!? Should I spend my bib money on um and if so how should I finish um off? Would love to hear any suggestions!
Well it is almost midnight and my eyes are blurring up. A true sign of too much computer time. That or I seriously need glasses ya'll. Probably a little of both. Have a good one and I will let ya know if I score either of those pieces! The site shuts down on Sundays so it usually put s a damper on any wheeling and dealing till Monday and with Kindergarten starting on Monday I may miss out.
