I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Pretties I Made

I added a slide show today to showcase some of the work I have done. Some of these items are for sale and some have already been sold. To be truthful with you, I wanted to see if I could upload the pictures and get the slideshow running with no help from anyone else. I did it!!! I thought it looked good and so here is stays. I hope you enjoy the show. If you should see something you like, please let me know, and enjoy the show. Sorry, popcorn not included.....

How much is too much??

It has come to my attention that it is possible to put too much information on your blog. I do want to ask the question though......can you really? How much is too much? And can you be possibly putting yourself "out there?" Someone close told me that too much info can be dangerous and can lead undesirables to your door. I have pondered this question and have to admit that having read others blogs, there is quite a lot of personal info out there. Too many details of your life could be a danger to you. Am I the only one considering this, or am I being way too paranoid? I don't give my address, family info and personal details, but I would assume in this day and age of electronics, anybody with interest could find just about anything they wanted. If this were to happen, I would diffenently have to ask the question, don't you have anything better to do with your time, fore if you are here reading me, you certainly are a person that needs a life!!
If you love roses, gardening, anything vintage, antique and most diffenently old, you are in the right place. We now have loads in common. My grandmother had the most beautiful rose garden and having lived in downtown Sacto. all my young life, I was surrounded by roses. We were down the street from the Capitol building and Capital Park. Not far from there was the McKinley Park, both having gorgeous, come to Sacto. roses gardens. They are still there today, even more beautiful if that is possible. Roses of all colors and petal size. Something that should not be missed if visiting. If roses are not your flower of choice, how about Camelias. The bushes are so high, you could kink your neck straining to see the tops. Such a lovely flower and no smell. What were the heavens thinking??!! I suppose when I create something using rose fabric, it takes me back to a simplier time, a time of running barefoot, eating popsicles playing hopschotch and just being a kid with no worries or cares.......oh, the good ole days.........remember when?

This is the first day of spring, the sun is out and I am very grateful to be here, able to enjoy all my life has to offer. Today is a good day, and because of someone thoughtful enough to help, I was able to share with you a couple of baskets I wove. I have some of the best friends anyone could ask for on chat groups located on ebay. The 2 groups I belong to are P.E.P which stands for painting ebay pretty and RRSC which is RaspberryRoseSellersClub. Whenever you go into ebay, just type these initials in the search area and you will see some of the most talented artists you can imagine. I really don't believe I could have achieved what I have without the help of so many talented and friendly ladies. Their hearts and minds are always open, there when you need them. For this I say a huge "thankyou."
I love selling on ebay and I love this group of artists. My love of roses is what brought them to me. I believe there are no accidents, and it was no accident that I found them....or they found me. The one thing we have in common is the love of shabby, cottage, vintage finds, anything roses, that can be sewn, or painted. Anything that isn't nailed down becomes fair game once there is a paint brush in someones hands. I had to laugh and will always remember when one of my P.E.P girlfriends shared a picture of the aftermath of a huge ice storm. One of the wooden posts to her garage was painted with a vine and roses! Forget the fallen trees and all the debris, I loved that post!!!
There are many changes occuring on ebay right now. I guess you could say they are going through some growing pains. There are many of us that are not happy with all this. We have taken to search for other selling venues and options. Don't get me wrong, we are still to be found on ebay, but we are also conquering many other avenues as well. You can find me on a wonderful website called Etsy. This is not an auction, but a great place to find handmade items created by wonderful artists all over the country. Just go in and have a look, you buy your item out right and it's yours. You can find me there at www.SomeplaceInTime.Etsy.com. There is nothing more satisfying that embracing something that someone put their love and time into creating. My wish is for you today is to enjoy peace, health and happiness.

what's a blog anyway??!!

This is my first post and I just have to ask the question, what the heck is a blog and what am I suppose to do with one? It seems everyone I know has a blog and just loves it. They tell me, write your thoughts and opinions, tell others what you think about things. Again I have to ask, who cares what I think or what my opinions are on anything? This is suppose to be fun and so here I am. As of yet, the fun has not begun......to be continued.
Just about everything I know about the computor, I have had to learn on my own. Oh, don't get me wrong, I love to give credit where credit is due and some of that has to go to my husband and son, with a little spread to my daughter as well. You would think with all these people on my side, I would have a lot more knowledge as to what I was doing here. I make many mistakes, some I can fix and others that I have just given up on. In all fairness, it's not that bad. I like finding my way around and it brings me great joy when I finally solve a computor problem and feel like I have acomplished something big. In reality, I am waiting for my 2 year old grand daughter to grow old enough to talk in sentences so she can show me how to work this machine. I am sure she will have no trouble teaching me.
I sell cottage, shabby, vintage and romantic items on ebay under the id of someplace*in*thyme. That is what originally sent me on this quest. I love making something beautiful from something vintage, old or on it's last leg. Hopefully this will be something fun I can do for many years to come. Only the economy will tell.
