I've always wanted to own by own boutique
growing up in a small town I couldn't have really understood the term
but the vision was always clear in my head
when I step into a small shop I instantly feel at home.
Sometimes I loose myself in a dream
when an abandon shop-front sits lonely across the street from me
of coarse in this economic blah blah blah that we find ourselves in
my dream seems lost and well quite frank - silly

I don't know what's in-store for my future
but right now I am unemployed, broke as a joke
and actually quite happy
but life demands money does it not
oh good grief does it!
Moving to the middle of nowhere has made finding a job
TERRIFYING and well in my mind hopeless
I think it is all rather more in my head
plus the idea of working for minimum wage makes me want to die inside
not that I feel I am too good for it
but honestly I don't much care for "working" in general
and I have a college degree for goodness sakes
I have a short period of time to prove to myself and my hubby
that I can make a few extra $$$ without leaving the house
I know it's crazy
but honestly if you lived out here
you might never want to leave either :)
plus not leaving the house means not spending $$$
ha except gosh dang electricity bills are not pleasant on the eyes
I've got to cut down on my showers and such
lol and my darling vintage fridge my hubby got me
was probably not the smartest move
for both the green movement or the green in our wallets
So what is my plan?
Sell, Sale, Sell, Sale
I never can tell which spelling is correct
have I told you before I have major issues with the english language
well that is a topic for an entirely different post
For the next few months I can not be gloomy
I can not NOT not doubt myself
I can do this! I can! I CAN!
My shop has always been more of a hobby
but now it's my lively hood!
So look out world - my little blogging world -
this gal might just start sounding like a used car salesman
So you know how my shop sidebar button
& GIFT SHOP
Well I'm finally dragging out all the items
I was always intending to list
like this sweet retro baby mobile
so there you have it - Thrift Shop!
I hope you all wont mind me sharing
what I'm posting in my shop from time to time
No pressure sales or anything
it's just that I'm passionate about what I put in my shop
from the vintage finds to my homemade sweets
plus for now on it's what I'll be spending the majority of my time doing
I'm sure to have arthritis one day from all the fabric yoyos
just a few of the headbands I listed yesterday :)
Hope you are having a great week!
Any fun plans for this weekend?
I'm quite anxious about this weekend
you see my little brother is fast on his way to winning
Two more races to go -
one this weekend
and the last in Salt Lake City - May 1st
Jim and I are going to see him there
I'll be sure to post about it more soon!
I have knots in my stomach just thinking about it
I can't even imagine the pressure and excitement
he must be going through!
