For Pets with Vintage Style

Since our cat, Boots, likes his new bed made from a vintage enamelware bowl, I decided to turn the orphaned bottom part of an enamelware roaster into a pet bed and add it to my shop. Yes, Boots modeled for me :)Then I got to looking around etsy for vintage pet items and found so many awesome items that I created a treasury ...

Happy Moon Day

To celebrate the anniversary of man's first landing on the moon, July 20, 1969, I was going to create an etsy treasury but soon discovered a lot of people had the same idea. So why re-invent the wheel.

So, it was on this day in 1969 that the United State's Apollo 11 landed on the moon. The first steps were taken by astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. You may remember the famous quote, "That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind." by Neil Armstrong as he stepped onto the moon.

Relieve the excitement as you look at the items that joonE picked out in this etsy treasury titled, a walk on the moon.

Enamelware Pan Becomes Kitty Bed

So, I continue to cross paths with enamelware that I just can't resist ... this huge handled pan came with about 10 other pieces that I bought at an auction. Unfortunately this one has a hole in the bottom ... it could have made a nice planter but I have several already so I decided to transform it into a cat bed.

I created a pillow from scrap material to fit in the bottom. I thought the metal would keep Boots a little cool and the pillow would give him a little cushion.

Boots wasn't sure what to think of his new bed when I placed him in it but quickly adapted and enjoyed laying in the sun.

I have added a couple more enamelware pieces to my store. And don't forget that I am always glad to combine shipping when purchasing multiple items.

Chippy Enamelware Pans Look Great on the Porch

I discovered a box of enamelware pans at an auction and couldn't resist the urge to buy them. The chippy enamel and the green trim was just too cute to pass up.

I brought them home knowing that they would look good on my porch ... and they fit right in with an old table that I painted green and an old bird cage that was also painted green.

You might notice right away the enamelware pan that is holding a basket of flowers but you may have missed the one that is in the crock or the one in the wicker plant stand with flowers in it.

In the small picture to the right, I've pulled the enamelware pan out of the crock so that you can see that it looks just as cute on the table!

I do have a few of these enamelware pans in my store ...

These are a little bigger than the ones I used but I can vision some old mason jars fitting nicely with fresh cut flowers ... or what about small clay pots with herbs?

In what ways have you repurposed your enamelware pans ... sure would like to know or even see a picture!

March Profits to Benefit Relay for Life

This year I will be attending 2 Relay for Life Events. These events raise money for research and programs for the American Cancer Society. We attend these events to walk laps, participate in the fundraisers, honor the survivors, and remember those who lost their lives to cancer.

On April 9th, my husband and I will be traveling to Purdue University to rally with Ashley, who leads the KMA team in memory of her mother, our dear friend, who lost the battle to colon cancer last year.

On May 14th, we will be traveling to Tallmadge, OH to rally with family and friends in our hometown. We will be there supporting my best friend, Kim, and her team, Schertzinger Believer's. It's been a tough couple of years for this team as they watched their mother, one amazing lady, battle cancer and lose the fight last November.

During the month of March I will donate 30% of all my etsy store, Endless Collectabilities, profits equally to the Relay for Life teams listed above. If you would like to make a donation to either of the teams, just click on the team names.

Together we can make a difference!

Customers - Why Did You Buy That Item

I love hearing back from customers ... whether it's why they bought an item or what they did with an item they bought.

I recently sold a pair of colorful metal wall art peacocks. Just last week I received a message from the buyers and look how they transformed these peacocks into something much more elegant....

Read more about this transformation at Beverly Hills Bohemian....

....And let me hear your stories!

Ideals Publishing Company Cards and Magazines

The Ideals magazines were published bi-monthly by the Ideals Publishing Co of Milwaukee, WI. As described on the order form .... Ideals are issues of clean, wholesome, old-fashioned American ideals - homey - philosophy - poetry - art - music - inspiration - neighborliness - things many of us have overlooked during these busy days.

I recently came across some cute little gift books published by the Ideals Publishing Corporation. These publications are a smaller version of the Ideals magazine and they were given in the place of a greeting card.

I have these for sale in my etsy store, Endless Collectabilities, and will be adding more soon.
