Vintage Jewelry

I recently stumbled upon quite a few pieces of vintage costume jewelry. I must admit, I'm keeping more than a couple for myself but the rest is going to be up for sale on Etsy.

Here is a pair of Gold tone pinwheel clip-on earrings by Elizabeth Morrey all ready to become a funky addition to your jewelry box.

This is my personal favorite a gold-tone mesh snake bracelet by Whiting and Davis. It is in gorgeous shape, and would make a great statement piece to go with any outfit. I'd keep it, but don't wear gold often enough. This piece will be up on etsy.com tomorrow.

Honey Do: A Time to Dive in

What I should have gotten done yesterday
- Suitcase Art website and blog facelift
- wedding photography website
- stock photos
- new listings on etsy
- cleaning the office

What I actually got done yesterday
- sewed the last curtain panel for our bedroom (no more loose fabric over the curtain rod! yay!)
- unpacked boxes in living room/kitchen
- took exactly 4 stock photos before light burned out
- no new etsy listings
- some work on the Suitcase Art website

Frankly, today is not looking much better. I'm going over to my parents' house to visit with mom and will probably spend the majority of the day there. But I still have a revised 'Honey Do' list for myself today.

- stock photos of five vintage jewelry pieces
- write ups on jewelry for etsy listings, list at least one tonight
- clean the office
- laundry
- post actual content to blog besides these silly lists of mine

new take on Suitcase Art

I've decided that it is time for an overhaul of my businesses and online presence. My website and blog are getting a facelift as are my etsy shops - Suitcase Art Vintage & Supplies and Natalie Jean Photography.

I'm dedicating myself to my online Vintage and Art supplies store, and I'm trying to take a more proactive role in promoting that business and my photography. My father and I are starting a wedding photography group and I'm working on the website but more on that later.

In personal news, Richard and I were in the process of buying a house but the sale has sadly fallen through. But I suppose that just means I have more time for the other things I need to do.

All in all, there are many things to do today...
- Suitcase Art website and blog facelift
- wedding photography website
- stock photos
- new listings on etsy
- cleaning the office

I realize that I have been neglecting this blog, and I have no really good reason, except that...

- I got married just a month ago.
- Richard and I are buying a house.
- I am always trying to find a job.
- we're packing constantly.
- and I discovered this thing called tumblr.

I'll be around more now, promise.
