Wishing for Etsy Shop Sales and Custom Orders

Today I got a surprise gift from a seller I had purchased from a couple of times. Now that is a true PIF. Just like my PIF's which are FREE at my shop
I joined yesterday. Today ironically I was given a vintage meat grinder so now I have two vintage meat grinders. I also was given a creamer today that I want to know more about so I contacted they said they needed more info on that item and my Capistrand R8338 Japan soup bowl. I am sure it is vintage as well. It takes about a week to get an answer back from so I am waiting. Meanwhile I have been busy at Glenna's Garden I started making ACEO/ATC pressed flower pictures. I made a young lady dressed in pressed flowers. My first one I really hope she goes to a good home. She can be seen at . This is the smallest work I have done with my pressed flowers and greenery. I truly enjoyed making her. It took me several hours to do. I now have her protected in a plastic sleeve. My custom projects involve much more detail like this lampshade I did recently. I am learning all about vintage. I have always been drawn to vintage. A lot of my handmade decorated boxes, cards, stationery and bookmarks are adorned with vintage papers. There is much thought and design that goes into using vintage papers so that you can preserve as much of the original vintage paper as possible. I have purchased many high quality vintage cards and papers from seller's on Etsy. So that now I actually have a backlog of designs and projects to do. I have seriously been thinking about opening a second Etsy shop for supplies only. I have collected so many unique and some vintage items over many years. One of the really neat, newest additions to Glenna's Garden is a 2" vintage owl pendant which can be seen in the picture at the top of this blog. Very unique....please let me know if you have seen an owl pendant like this one. Well it is time for me to go back to the garden and plant some more seeds. Blessings~*~Glenna from Glenna's Garden~*~
