The beautiful little house I posted tonight is not antique. It is a new one made by a gal name Heather Kowalski and is just beautiful. This one is pale blue and with it are some bottle brush trees that I bought from Karla Nathan at Karlascottage. both gals have etsy sites and you can get things from etsy hand made by people far better and cheaper then in a store. I haven't even seen houses like this in a store. I liked it so much I went back and ordered the last one she had on her site in pink for my grandaughter. I thought she might like it for her room. I went through my account on PayPal today and I made 10 etsy purchases this month and 2 from Artbeads. I don't know where I found Artbeads but have ordered twice from them and there is NO shipping charge and NO minimum. I ordered a pack of lacey stuff to start beading some butterflies and it was only 5.99 total. They had a sale on 25% off a while ago and I ordered some seed beads and 6 packages of silamide thread and they were only $1.00 pack. I do not know if they ship to Canada free but it would be worth looking at. I have been very satisfied with their service.
I think with Christmas coming up it would be a good time for me to have a giveaway. I was in JoAnnes yesterday and they had a copy of the new book I mentioned in an earlier post. Embroidered Flora and Fauna by Lesley Turpin- Delaport. I am enjoying just looking at it so much I thought it would be a good giveaway. Please just leave a comment on my blog between now and Sunday and I will pull a name or number Monday am. I am not advertising this as I would like it to be won by one of my constant readers. It says I have 30 followers so that is a good crowd. I do this blog more for myself, my kids to read what I am up to and for the close friends I have made thru our CQ lists. I love you all and really enjoy reading all your blogs so come on and leave a comment. Maryanne in Canada already has this book so if her name is pulled she will get something else and I will pull another name.
