New Etsy shop! Maine Coast Vintage

[collectible miniature teacup available at Maine Coast Vintage]

No Funky Friday post today. Instead I want to talk about a couple of new things: For starters, my new Etsy shop is finally getting off the ground. It's called Maine Coast Vintage, and you can find it here. I've only listed 4 items so far, but stay tuned -- there are more to come! I am a lover of vintage and antiques, especially vintage china and glass. I also like what I call "interesting junk." Perhaps the dollhouse furniture from the 1930s falls into that last category! I've had it in my own collection for years, but now I've decided to add it to my shop. It's shabby but it's really cute!

Also, it is truly a new season here in Maine, with temps this morning only in the 50s, and let's not even think about how low it went last night. I'm borrowing a nice Nikon camera from a friend on Monday and must try it out before my cousin's wedding, so expect to see some new outdoor shots soon. Until then, I am dipping into my archives for a few pics from last September.

I am going to quickly mention September 11th...

[Tiles for America, Greenwich Village/NYC; December 2007]

I can't quite believe it's been 8 years. I lived in NYC on that fateful day, and it was partly due to that day's events that I left Queens and moved to Maine. However, rather than dwelling on the past, I'd like to take a moment to express appreciation for my life. I feel blessed to be an American, I feel so much appreciation for my life in Maine, and more than anything, I am very grateful for all of my wonderful friends and family members. I also appreciate you folks in blogland who take the time to stop by and read my words. Thank you!

OK, folks, it's Friday. Time to rock the weekend! Keep it safe but have a good one!
