Favorite Things Party ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

I don’t know if you have heard of the party called favorite things party, but apparently Oprah had a show and gave everyone some of her favorite things she uses everyday or just loved and can’t live without.

I looked on Pinterest to get some ideas on how this party works exactly because I figured instead of the Chinese auction we could have a favorite things party. People do play the game a little different one blog said that you would fill out a short fun survey and which ever guest correctly named who filled in the survey could go up to the table and pick a gift of there choice which I like but then I read that the person who starts like the hostess would draw three names and those three people would get the her favorite gift.

Have you heard of this game? If so how do u play your game and list some of the cool ideas and gifts that you have seen or had at your party. Here are a few pictures from blogs and pinterest.

I swear there is a team on employees that must monitor blogs and Pinterest to see what the hottest trends and styles are because I have noticed several items going up in price. Has anyone else seen prices going up on certain items?

More photos of Harley the beagle and more๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ

I have taken more shots of my flowers as they come up in my garden and of course I couldn’t go one day without taking pictures of Harley lol

I took these pictures and used several photo editing software to create my images.
I was so excited that my calla lily came up finally I always had the leaves make an appearance each year but no flowers I planted these in 2004 lol

I need help by having a fundraiser I will be able to boost my hobby to a professional status. Please feel free to share on your blogs and Facebook pages.

I have taken a lot of pictures and have a canon rebel EOS t3 which isn’t a bad camera but to be able to take professional portraits I will have to upgrade to a better camera. I also am at a standstill at the moment due to a virus that attacked my computer. My computer was old and ran slow anyways but to be able to achieve my goals I will have to get a computer so that I can edit my photos and set up slide shows and email photos to clients.

I also want to be able to take the best photos of the pets at the local rescues and shelters so myself and the rescue can post on our sites to maximize adoptions and I will be doing this part all for free a way for me to give back to the animals. As u can see from all the pictures I have taken of Harley who at this point is not looking at my camera when he hears me pull it out of the bag lol.

Here is the fundraising link if u like my picturesque editing that I posted below then please do me a huge favor and share my link on your Facebook pages, blogs, email to a friend or family etc i appreciate any help I get. Thanks

Vintage and Shabby Chic Decor

I have seen so many cute displays using vintage items in alot of stores these days. It takes me back because I see things that I know my grandparents had in their home.

I love some of the modern uses people have for vintage and shabby chic items.
I create alot of crafts and gifts but along with that I also sell vintage and shabby chic items that I think are in great condition and that someone else may have a need for.

I have seen pictures milk glass items such as vases, planters, etc used in so many ways like business card holders, desk organizers, flowers, plants, succulents, paper clip holders, pen holders, a catch all in the foyer area for keys and spare change, in the laundry room to place anything anyone in your home leaves in the pockets, candy dishes and so much more.

I am sure u can come up with some creative ideas yourself for these items and would love for you to leave your comments on what u do with your vintage items. What colors do u like or would like to purchase?

Here are some pictures of items for sale in my etsy shop and as I mentioned in a previous post I have already marked down the prices of vintage and home decor items in my shop so stop on by and see what I have. I am making room for some new finds. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78
