I decided to hit an Estate Sale today, and, I'm so glad I did.  Buried in the basement were a bunch of vintage tags.

I scored a pile of vintage tin hiding in a dark corner of the garage.

I'm a happy camper.

I'll be listing some of the tags on Etsy, and, having lots of fun playing with the tin.

I've been organizing, painting, creating, and, listing.

I literally have a huge bowl of vintage prisms.  I also have tons of salvaged vintage metal.  This next piece is an assemblage I created.  I gave the metal that weathered finish.

I've been making some of my salvaged metal crowns as well.  Some of my long term readers may remember when I started making these years ago HERE.  If you'd like to see some of my older pieces, you can check them out by clicking HERE, HERE, and, HERE.  I can't tell you how many I've made.  A LOT.

I rescued these from a broken chandelier.  I going to give someone else the opportunity to do something creative with them.

A grouping of appliques have been listed as well.

You can visit my Etsy shop HERE.

I'm finally getting back into the Etsy zone.

I have to be honest.  It took awhile.  Resting is addictive.

I've been painting, and, listing,

and, I will continue to do so.

A few things have disappeared already, but, I have similar items in the works, as I continue to dig into my salvaged metal stash,

and, vintage.

You can visit my Etsy shop by clicking HERE, and, remember to check back often.

After a very busy year, I didn't realize just how tired I was, until I started resting.  I've been resting, watching movies, baking, clearing my mind, etc.

As nice as it feels, I know I have to drag myself back into work mode.  I started going through some of my vintage metal, doing a little painting, etc.

I'll be working on listings in my Etsy shop this weekend.

Plus, my shows will be starting again at the end of February.  I know that time will fly by.

So, back to work, with a bit of lazing around thrown in here and there.
