I am still working on the Etsy shop. And my closet. And some sewing projects. The above photo is a close up of a piece of china I am peddling in my soon to be Etsy shop.
In terms of inventory for the yet unnamed Etsy shop, I plan to post a bunch of vintage, unused post cards. These are suitable for framing or to send to your friends and loved ones. The Etsy software to list merchandise is relatively easy and straightforward, but I find the process somewhat tedious. So I have been avoiding posting additional listings for now. I worked on my closet instead!
I feel I have the closet situation relatively straightened out. I need to pack in a few days for our next trip north. It will be good to be doing so from an organized closet for a change. Having organized closets is a bonus too for real estate showings.
In terms of our real estate status, I am feeling a bit nervous. One of the other parties interested in the 1805 farmhouse I am currently stalking lowered the sales price on her home by $105,000! Hers is a large estate, some twenty-one acres, built in 1774, originally listed for sale in 2012 at $780,000 in the same town as the house we are both interested in. She is down to $590,000 from $695,000 effective yesterday.
Our house isn’t currently on the market. We are waiting to hear about the wait list darling daughter is on to transfer to the large university before we take our next step. If she were to transfer, I would want to stay put. If she doesn’t transfer, it is time to move north. I think I am going to have to start biting my nails or something. Nerve wracking business, this is.
Have you ever used a French press to make coffee? We just started. We got some delicious chocolate flavored coffee from the green mermaid otherwise known as Starbucks the other day. Started using the press to brew it. Yum-um! What we don’t drink when it is hot we keep in a pitcher in the fridge for iced coffees that are out of this world. In fact, darling daughter and I are about to imbibe a small hot pre-bedtime pick-me-up we like this coffee so much. I don’t think it will interfere with my sleep at all!
