Shop Updates : Kitsch Designs and KD Vintage

January 16, 2012 07:29 by ehouston

As I mentioned earlier in the month, I wanted to move my vintage items out of my main shop to free up space for more handmade vintage textile items.  Shortly after posting about making this change, I did it. 

Ta-da!  Welcome to my vintage only shop on Etsy,  KD Vintage.

So far I have just moved the vintage items from the Kitsch Designs shop over to this one, along with a few items from my Artfire store.  I have also picked up a few new items to add.  Just as soon as I can get some photos edited.  Wah-wuh!  Soon, I promise!

In the meantime I wanted to address some questions about projects I posted here a long time ago and stated I would soon include those types of items in my store.  Here is one to jog your memory.

I have some of these in the hopper and hope to get more of my textile art pieces (mentioned here) posted soon too.

I have several that just need to be mounted and bound.  Keep coming back for more updates.  You might just find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and don’t forget Mother’s Day is just around the corner too!

Recent Etsy Shop Additions

February 4, 2011 07:01 by ehouston

As part of “Project Declutter” I have finally started posting some of my vintage clothing items.  Several of these pieces have been revamped with slight alterations to make them a little more hip, while others have been left au naturale.

Coming Soon to an Etsy Shop Near You!

August 26, 2008 06:54 by ehouston

I have been working on adding new items to the shop, but also trying to limit the number of items listed so as not to overwhelm shoppers.  I thought the best approach would be to go about this seasonally, like any brick and mortar.  I have several stroller quilts that I will be adding as soon as I can get some decent pictures.  I love my camera, but not the lighting in my house.  It's an older home, with crummy yellowy lighting, and even with all the spare lamps I can find gathered around the object d' art, I cannot seem to get a good shot.  That's not going to stop me, though, because there are children out there with chilly toes and they need a way to stay toasty while out and about!

On another note, we have finally received some much needed rain here in Nashville, TN and although the sky has been very gray everything else is becoming bright green again.  (The gray light coming through my windows has not helped my picture taking one bit, but that was the last topic, right?)  Yesterday morning, I went to step out on the kitchen patio to move a plant out so it could get a drink and staring directly at me on the slider was a Walking Stick bug!  After taking my breath away (nothing like meeting a bug face to face) I realized this is the biggest Walking Stick I have ever seen.  Growing up, I remember seeing these once in a while, but they were never more than 2-3 inches long.  This one is over 5 inches, has a curly-Q mouth (?-not really sure which end has this) and both brown and green coloring.  It really looks like an itty-bitty pine branch with some needles still attached.  It clung to the door all day and was still there this morning.  Don't know what it's up to, but it has been fun to watch.  I even tried to take a picture, but had a really hard time obtaining a decent view because the camera kept auto-focusing on things through the window.  One of these days, maybe I should read that inch thick manual....  Enjoy the pics!

(note: I did include the sliders in the springtime window cleaning, but you wouldn't know it looking at these shots.  ewwww...)
