motivation and amusement

So last week when I was obsessing about vignettes, I had a secret motivation...trying to inspire myself to try something new in the Etsy store. Calling them instant vignettes.

And for the store store, I am amusing myself by working on little stories (if a couple of sentences can be a story) to go with furniture I am trying to sell. This was inspired by a comment Mise made. Perhaps her name should be Muse. More on this (little stories, not Mise/Muse) another day. Tomorrow I'm getting up early and going to the Catskills. I want to have the store open Fridays on a regular basis. Most of my customers are weekenders, but when I'm there on Fridays I sometimes have people come in who work nearby, which is really nice.


  1. Hello Jen:
    We think that these groupings are so very atmospheric and the individual items really become part of a whole. Such a lovely and creative way to display things.

  2. It sounds like Friday is a good day to be open, especially during the holidays and it gives you a chance to become better acquainted with the locals. I particularly like the orange pitcher and desert scene along with whatever that small tin is.

  3. I love that codfish box in vignette #1, actually all are alluring.

    I'm off to check them out.

    Have a busy weekend.

  4. Jen,
    everything is lovely as usual! The skates and Trixie book are may favs! How lucky you are to get to spend time in such a beautiful place!
    Hope you are having a wonderful Holiday season so far!

  5. There are a lot of essence to learn in your display. I love your natural taste and color.

  6. I love all your creative displays... very cool indeed
    love these old roller skates I had some like that with a skate key to size them just right
