November 24, 2012

Well, I got shelves for the doves' cages and I didn't even have to put more holes in the walls. I ended up getting some decent metal shelves that are adjustable that are pretty sturdy that worked. Next will be changing the crappy curtain rod and getting new curtains for that glass door. I have a new rod, but still trying to find the curtains I want ... might have to make them.
I just discovered that I'm at my 1GB limit for adding photos to my blog with Picasa! I deleted a few older pics, but I'm going to have to find another free storage site to link my future pics to! Sucks! Guess I will use my old PhotoBucket account for a while.
I have added a pair of Kirk Douglas novels to my Bonanza shop.
Tomorrow, I'll be adding another year of Ceramics magazines to my Listia shop.

November 23, 2012

I hope everyone is having a safe holiday weekend. I stayed home and read. Now, I have to catch up on a few things. I have several sales and swaps to package up to mail tomorrow morning. Then, I will get to adding a few more things to my shops.
The seed starters I mentioned in the last blog, I won't be able to list after all. My mom decided to keep them.
I have listed another set of 5 Amber Glass Dropper Bottles - Used on Listia. I have a lot of these. 
Also, on Listia, I've added another year (1984) of Ceramics magazines, so just go to my Listia page, as there are quite a few!
Tomorrow, I have a couple of shelves to build in the doves' room as they are now in the separate cages and I want those on their own shelves rather than sitting on the big cage. I want to fold that one up and put it in the shed. I'll take pictures when I have them up.
Hopefully, it won't be an all day job and I'll be able to list a couple of things in my Bonanza shop.

 Martha Stewart Living - December, 1996/January, 1997

November 18, 2012

It took a while, but I think I've got my Bonanza shop cleared up. There were a few things I had already sold offline and forgot to remove, plus moved some magazines to my Listia shop. Will move more during the week until they are all off of Bonanza. I also found some more Martha Stewart Living magazines that I'll be listing tomorrow.
So, I've listed some Ceramics magazines from 1983 to my Listia shop. My mom, aunt, cousins and I used to make a LOT of ceramics. I still have most of the ones that I made and many of my mom's and aunt's. Most of them are displayed on shelves in the dove's room.
Speaking of the doves. Big Boy, Little Boy, Little Girl and Squabbie have all moved out of the big cage and back into regular bird cages. I never did get around to eating Squabbie this summer! So, he's obviously here for the duration. He's rooming with Little Boy, now (in the white cage.) I think they are happy. Any eggs that Little Girl lays will now be eaten. ;)

November 17, 2012

We're still having some lovely rain here in sunny CA. More expected tomorrow and later in the week. Love it!
My mom insisted on getting another microwave today. Ugh. I'm not happy about that. But, I did find 2 really nice glass water dispensers to replace the plastic ones! I am happy about that! One will be for water and the other for tea! They hold over 1 gallon each. I hope to get a couple more before next spring, so we can have 2 in the fridge and 2 on the counter. I also put the bookcase together (the one that hurt me last week moving it up the steps!) and moved it into my mom's room. She's happy. Now she can move all the cookbooks out of the cupboards and store more food!
Anyway, I just listed five cat magazines on Listia.
Cat Fancy Magazine October 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine January 1999
 Cats & Kittens Magazine July 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine September 1999
Cats & Kittens Magazine May 2000
Tomorrow, there will be an update of my Bonanza shop to remove several items that are no longer available. I will then be adding a few pieces of ladies' clothing from my aunt's estate.

November 16, 2012

I didn't get anything listed yesterday, obviously! I am having some issues with my neck, so didn't do much of anything. Today is a bit better, but still painful. But, I am listing!
Today, I have a cute American Wego #2127 stuffed bear up in my Bonanza shop. He is a fun, floppy sort of bear waiting for some hugs!
I've also added a book to Listia.
My mom keeps finding that she has duplicate books. This is one - In My Wildest Dreams. It's an historical romance.
Tomorrow, I'll be adding a few 1999-2000 back issues of various cat magazines to Listia for the cat lovers!

I decided to just list all the collectible pins in one large lot of 30. They are all from the Lions, Lioness and Leo Clubs from the 1980s. They are all California district pins, except for one. My aunt, my mom and I were all founding members of the River City Lioness Club. These were all my aunt's pins. They are all in very good condition.













Tomorrow, I'll be listing an adorable American Wego stuffed bear in my Bonanza shop.

November 11, 2012

Well, I seem to have failed to keep up with posting to my online shops the past few days. I didn't even look at email yesterday. Caught up with all that today, so hope to get back on track tomorrow since I'm taking the day off of work for Armistice/Veteran's Day. I put my flag out at 11am today and will put it out all day tomorrow.

I'll be pulling my old XP computer out of the closet tomorrow and setting it up in my office in the living room. It has a program on it that I need to use to burn some dvds for my mom. I hate the programs installed on my laptop and this new computer for burning. But, I can't figure out how to get it off of the XP to use on them! I may need to use one of my old TVs as the monitor since it's monitor was going out last time it was hooked up. We'll see.

Tomorrow I will get a magazine or two listed, as well as updating a few of my book and magazine listings on Bonanza and Listia.

November 8, 2012

This day just seemed to fly by! I didn't get a chance to go through the magazines as I had planned. So, will do that when I get home from work tomorrow so I can get some listed in my Listia shop.
I stopped at one of the big produce stands on the way home today and got a big bag of Serrano peppers that I hope to get dehydrated this weekend.
I also stopped at a GoodWill to pick up a couple of things for swaps and found this really cool cake blade with a beaded handle. It is something I may attempt to make in the future. I should have taken a picture of it before I packaged it.
This is a similar idea to the one I bought.
Italian Wedding favors, Bridal shower favors, Sweet 16 favors,  anniversary favors, birthday favors,  Wedding favors, Engagement favors Wedding accessories, Guest book, Cake & Knife server, Flutes sets, pen set, Toasting glass set


We had some wonderful rain today. I loved being out in it. It may rain again tomorrow.

Today I've listed 5 amber glass dropper bottles in my Listia shop. These little brown bottles have plastic droppers that can hold up to 1ml of liquid. Great for essential oils or even feeding baby animals! They previously held Vitamin D, but have been boiled and thoroughly dried. Check them out here: 5 Amber Glass Dropper Bottles - Used
Tomorrow, I'll be going through some magazines and may list a few in my Listia shop.
