I finally made a Treasury on Etsy! I’d always wanted to but never bothered.

Well, inspiration struck at 4 a.m. the other morning. When I saw this pendant by CameraSHYphotography, I found my theme: The Eastern Shore.

I grew up on the Shore, also known as the Delmarva Peninsula. Let me know what you think of the Treasury! Clicky-clicky to see it.

Oh, and if you like Treasuries (I can look at them for hours), these three include some of my items on Etsy. Hurray!

Scribbly semicolon mug. New in my Etsy story.

It may seem silly to paint a mug in the middle of summer, but then again I can’t say I’d ever turn down a fresh cup of coffee, no matter what time of year.

The thought of mixing hot coffee with hot weather always makes me think of my Gran. I remember her sitting on her front porch in the most ridiculous summer heat. Southern summer heat, too. So you bet it was humid. But Gran would be sipping on a hot cup of coffee — black, just the way she liked it. Sitting there in her white wicker chair (and perspiring quite a bit), she’d declare she could feel a nice breeze coming through — couldn’t you feel it?

I called my Gran at the nursing home one Thursday in May. It was the last time I would speak to her; she passed away three days later. That afternoon was very warm, but Gran was about to drink a cup of coffee. Hot, she said. She didn’t want it cold; she wanted it hot. As hot as they could get it.

Makes perfect sense to me.

I’m in the process of updating my Etsy, and it’s going to carry on tomorrow because I’m off to a birthday movie! (Not my birthday. I’m not much on movies. However, I am quite happy with popcorn.)

Until then,

Girl Scout badge pins!

A cat in a cup! (Vintage)

Tree pins!

I have a boatload of buttons (pins) to still list. Tons more Girl Scout badge pins, which were super fun to make. Let me know what you think!

Also some punctuation items on the way as soon as I get good pics! Woo!

Baruch’s Lullaby, a nice Etsian, included my semicolon lapel pins in a recent Treasury!

Here’s the part of the post where I feel I should say something about where I’ve been and apologize for being a crappy blogger. But I’m not apologizing ’cause this blog is for fun, not stress, right?

P.S. Where have I been? Taking cello lessons. So far, I can play “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” and other exciting children’s songs. Oh, I can play one White Stripes song, too.
