Picture Perfect

I'm considering kissing both of the inventors of Instagram square on the lips!  I love this app! Lately, many of my mornings (and evenings and afternoons and all the spaces in between) are spent scrolling through the pictures and videos of my fellow vintage dealers, friends and family that I follow. One might think that this app is solely image-based, but, in fact, it has an auditory element, as well… the whooshing noise that my work deadlines make as they go by, for example!

If you are unfamiliar with Instagram, it's an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters to them, and share them on a variety of social networking services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.  In short, Instagram has increased my engagement with like-minded entrepreneurs immensely.  I can search by keywords (via hashtags) or search users with the name of a person or business.  It's addictive!  

Here are some of the recent photos I've posted on my Instagram… check them out and see what my business and I have been up to… and if you are inclined, follow us, too!

When it comes to French Monograms and English 
silver, say yes.  Always say yes!

We can actually promise you a rose garden . . .

Tuesday Ta Da!

I am not, intrinsically, one of those people put in this world to meet deadlines.  Despite this handicap, I persist in trying.  I missed the reveal for the DIY upcycled champagne lamps on Makers Monday.  So, I thought I could try and save face and sneak by with a Tuesday Ta Da post to show you how they turned out, but unfortunately I committed to a four day show out of town last week and simply didn't finish what I started.  This serves as a brilliant illustration of how I've made a much closer acquaintance with over-committing than I am entirely happy with … 
So, basically, what I'm saying is … I got nothin.

Perhaps I can get my "To Do List" done by next Monday!
