A, D, B, C, Q...

The process of listing the goodies for my Big Sale has been very revealing. One of the things that I discovered, or rather, reaffirmed, is that I'm not a linear type of fellow. While some people make the natural connections, A, B, C, D.... my thought patterns are more like: A, D, B, C, Q. Some people have a natural talent for moving in straight lines. I'm not one of them. I think this is both good and bad. I have the lucky gift of finding unusual things in unusual places, but I don't have the mental fortitude to post more than ten at a time. I reach the ten mark and my eyes start to cross and I start to scroll down to other listings and start posting out of order. There are still HUNDREDS of items that still need to be listed, including more vintage Avon, lots of milk glass tableware, finished jewelry (both pieces I've made and a lot that are just in my collection), and those lovely fabic-covered handmade books that I have in stacks. So do be sure to check back often! I'll drink a Red Bull and eat a PowerBar and get back to work! In the meantime, enjoy what I have posted in the BIG SALE.

"...lovely fabric-covered handmade books..." How intriguing. I'll be on the look out for those.

In the meantime, stay sane. :-)

I'll be looking out for the fabric-covered books, as well!

Just bought the moonstone ring on the first page. Love the ring and when I saw it was a size 5 ... Eureka. My daughter has the most delicate hands with very long, thin fingers. I'll be with her for two weeks starting on Thursday. This is the perfect gift ... because she loves rings but has a hard time finding them for her little fingers. Thank you!

just purchased a couple little pieces, but I am also waiting to see more. I sent out a tweet and posted on Facebook for you too!
