To take a screen shot of a mosaic or treasury (or most unprotected media), I use Aviary from Google (free plus free online imaging tools). I like to save the mosaic (created using Etsy's poster sketch) to my desktop. I haven't gotten around to using Aviary's image hosting or suite of image editing tools. I just edit with my MS Office Picture Manager and MS Paint. I use Aviary with my Foxfire browser.… Continue

Okay, so I do a good bit of selling of jewelry and have been collecting for more years than I care to admit to. I know all of the proper terminologies to use when describing my bracelets. I have a nice sized collection and I sell some to buy some more about twice a year. This week on my hannahsetsy site I have been listing alot of bracelets and they pretty much covered the spread on types and styles as well as era's. I thought it would be a good time to write a blog about… Continue

I happen to have too much clutter at home and set up a photographing area in my furnace room with a white cardboard trifold (for students). There is a florescent lamp overhead. This is great for small items, but there is nothing like natural sunlight for the best picture.
I just starting using some props to help with contrast and size relations. Props are good for staging and creating atmosphere. But if your item is already patterned or intricate, then its best… Continue

I saw these on Saturday and didn't buy them, because I couldn't believe they were the Real Deal. After doing a bit of research I went back today and bought them (pics are just of the larger bowl - 9.5" - there's also a smaller one, 8.5".) Apparently they are the genuine article, and other than a couple of mfg. flaws they're in beautiful… Continue

I tend to get my best ideas in the car. Of course, that sometimes means that while I'm Thinking Important Thoughts I miss my exit, or forget to pick up dog food on the way home, but sometimes the payoff is worth the minor inconveniences. Continue
A couple of days ago I was in the midst of running around to a couple of my favorite treasure hunting spots, and was carrying on a conversation with Myself about my on-going frustration over vintage sellers who don't seem to know what they're…

I am sure that most of us hit the thrift stores on occasion. We have very scarce pickings here for my passion which is jewelry in the thrifts and very few finds to be had mostly. I have for years looked at and even purchased and resold a few of the lamps that I find mostly at goodwill. I found a porno lamp one day that was the talk of the little town I live in lol. I sold it real fast to a male dealer and made a buck so was not worried a bit. Those other lamps kept bothering me.… Continue

Clothing can be a form of self expression, like poetry
...but do the two ever cross?
Your favorite shirt, the jacket of your first boyfriend in high school, your first baby socks kept in a pretty box for safe keeping -- items of clothing travel with us throughout our lives, a silent, comfy companion. Do you ever feel this way? There are actually many odes and dedicated poetry to clothing that can be found if you just take a peek.

I just posted on my Deer Path Vintage blog this morning. I've been neglecting it lately, but hope to get back into the swing of things. I'm here in the south, but hardly lounging on the beach. You'll see why!
Everything in my shop is 15% off until April 1 if you say the magic words, "Vintage Village". (Because Vintage Village is where it's… Continue
