Estate Sale Selling

I go to a few Estate sales when I can. There is an awesome website called that lists the dates and times, maps and pictures for the sales. I have noticed some particularly amazing photos on this site- these are unchanged by moi - these are the exact snapshots that the organizers take to showcase the items in the sale. I think this first one had a lot of influence on my recent collage work.

I may frame this one and hang it in the living room. I just love the set like appearance, the colors and balance, and I especially like the blinds reflected in the TV.

Owls and Other Animlas

I am actually keeping this first owl for myself. He is all cashmere and probably the best shaped owl I have yet to make. The others are posted and for sale for $55 on Etsy, both in second seed and in secondseedinstitches.

Aster raked the leaves on Sunday - just to take pics. I think this looks like a Loreal Paris ad.
I have decided to quit Anthropologie. I really like working there, but I feel like I cannot keep house or make dinner or spend any decent enough amount of time with my family. Since I mostly work nights there - that was the job to leave...
only a few hours after I e-mailed Anthropologie my resignation and two weeks notice - a manager at Naartjie quit and I was promoted to replace her. So now I have to work two nights at Naartjie. I also teach on Thursday Evenings and I am simply tired of not being home for dinner. I have been living on root beer and pretzel hotdogs while all I think about are wonderful healthy meals. I need to get organized to make a number of dinners on my free days to be able to pull out of the fridge or freezer last minute. Today is one of those days - I don't have high hopes.
