Howdy! Before we get started, you might want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine here, as I tend to ramble a bit...First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the reason for this blog in the first place. You see, I have another blog called, "365 Days Of The Year." Four years ago, I started it as a challenge to post a photo a day on it for a year, and I did! When my year was up, I thought I could just drop it, but I found I missed it. So, instead of the pressure of taking a "picture worthy picture" every day, I just started to post random thoughts and stories of my family and friends, with an occasional picture. After each year, I would have the entire year made into a hard cover book, to some day give to our son Landon. I also have a handbag business that I do on the side from my full time childcare business. Occasionally, I would post on my blog, things about purses or shows/expos that I was doing and it just didn't feel right. It was business and my blog was for family, friends, and my place to go to vent or just tell my little stories. I would also post a bit about business on facebook and that didn't feel right either. Now, I have started to dip my toes in a little crafty stuff. Nothing major, but a little something here and there and I needed a place to put it along with my purses that felt right. That place is here. Here I will post things about purses, re-purposing, flea marketing, or maybe just take you along on a few road trips with me. Wherever it takes us, I hope the trip is as much fun for you as it is for me. Ready to ride?

I know. I know. The length of that purse site link is insane! But, when I created it, I couldn't think of anything short and cute that wasn't already taken, like... "The Swedish Cowgirl." Ha! By the way, I am 1/2 Swedish. On the other side it's a bit Heinz 57. English, Dutch, German, Irish, Chinese and Indian! My dad's side was the wild side! So, it is what it is. I am what I am.

Etsy, Baby!

I've been slowly but surely getting pictures/info together and posting them in my new Etsy store that I am working on. It is a major job, let me tell ya! But, it will get done. This year. I promise. Not everything will be upscaled/recycled/handmade. I am also including some of my fun stuff that I've discovered on my little junkin' trips. Here is one post just to give you a little taste of what is yet to be...

This is a Vintage TOY iron.
Yes! That is a plug in.
Even though the iron barely
gets hot, I can't imagine giving
it to a child to play with.
I still thought it was pretty cool
and snagged it anyway.
Guess things were a lot different
back in the good old days. A lot different!
The little red button slides, so your child
can pretend to adjust the tempurature.
Hopfully they won't get too teed off
when they realize it never gets any hotter!
Made by Wolverine.
See you at the store soon!!
