Do you make pretty things you want to sell?

I have set up a new blog where those who I follow and who follow me can post what they make.  Handcrafted items made by YOU. 

Do a blog post and add it here and I will promote it in my stores and get the word out as well.

I know it has my bracelet on header but ideally once a week to have one of your photos run there would be fun too!

Email me at Eunice356@gmail and let me know if you make something you would like to have showcased and generate some sales on.  Once I add you as a contributor you can post or I can re-blog if you do a post on your blog.

I will make necklaces and bracelets  like the one below

which is call KUMIHIMO.  I use glass beads.

KUMIHIMO Bracelet
KUMIHIMO Bracelet

A little history about this type of beaded braid.

Kumihimo cord was first created by a form of finger-loop braiding. Later tools such as the marudai and the takadai were employed to make more complex braids in shorter time. The most prominent historical use of the cords was by samurai as both a functional and decorative way to lace their lamellar armour and their horses’ armor (barding). Kumihimo cords are now used as ties on haori jackets and obijimes, which are used for tying on an obi (kimono sash).

I will also be offering Fused Glass Pieces for not only the women but for the men in their lives.

I will also Start another BLOG to post this jewelry and for others to link to who also make pretty things they want top sell.  Let’s support each other.

CHURCHILL’S OFFERED A FREE ORCHID TALK TODAY part one

100_4877

It is mid January here in New Hampshire and Churchill’s advertised a “FREE” talk on growing Orchids, I had to attend.  Nancy told us all about different types of orchids and their needs.  Water, food and light and airflow.   They are delicate but there are so many we can grow here, if we can give them the right mix of all of these.

100_4844

We were taught to pick between bark and charcoal mix or long moss for growing orchids in.  We need to feed them so they grow strong with bright green leaves but not real dark leaves though.  We learned that after the blossoms are gone and after a short rest,  we can gently remove it from their pot and trim off any soft, unhealthy looking roots, and give them a little bath to remove all old bark mix and prepare it to go back into the pot with fresh mix added.  A great way to give them enough humidity she said was to set out a tray of stones,  deep enough to hold a little water and sit the plant on top of the stones,  just not in the water.  These are plants that love tropical surroundings, so the more you can do to your home to get it as close to the real thing,  the happier your orchids will be.  They will show you with beautiful blooms and bright green leaves.

 

100_4843

This plant was so beautiful,  forgive me for the light, after all  we were in a beautiful greenhouse that was so warm and toasty. A perfect place to spend a few hours shopping for plant for your home.  They are having a sale right now and with the photos I will add to the two blogs I am doing on Churchill’s , you will see that they have so many beautiful choices. More on part 2

This orchid is growing in a clear pot and you can clearly see by the roots that once the blooms have faded and rested a new pot with fresh bark mix will be on order as well as a pot just a little bigger.

 

100_4849

A beautiful plant looking for a new home to grace,  as well as the supplies you can buy here to keep it beautiful,  for many years to come.  Who said New Hampshire is too cold for pretty plants.

 

100_4850

After the talk we went shopping.  This greenhouse is filled with all different kinds of plants for your home.  African Violets are on my left,  some Boston Ferns on my right.  A pretty plant stand holds a fern.  It is not just about plants,  it is about your home.  Statuary and fountains as well as gorgeous pots are  here too.

For me and the others who attended the talk today it was all about the ORCHID

They call our place HOME

Assorted feathered visitors who stay and have their young, in our backyard.

,

I think this is a  young Coopers Hawk and he swooped in to try to grab a little Juncos or Red Squirrel , what a Naughty Bird,  no I know he was hungry but stayed with me for a long time while I took photo after photo of him, while it was snowing out.

Little Juncos thankful it was not lunch!

They all hung out inside my rose bushes, beside me and my camera.  That naughty hawk scared them bad enough that I made them feel safe!

Male Cardinal munching on Black Oil Sunflower Seeds

I love that all of these birds like our place enough to call it home.  I whistle for these males and in they come for a meal, love being one with nature.

His mate

Who doesn’t like Mallards .   I can hardly wait till they let me see their babies ,

any day now!

They look pretty happy here,  now remember we have a Cool Cat and JT the border Collie.

Baltimore Orioles  have such a pretty song they sing.  I love mixing up sugar and water for them and the Hummingbirds

Love these tiny, full of life, amazing flyers!

Such  cool birds to have all around you in the yard. Saddest part of fall is when they leave for South America.

My CB Handle was Hummingbird, lol   and only tattoo is a life-size one.

This is when I wish I had a $10,000.00 camera set-up

.

So beautiful just sitting and waiting for the feeder to be less busy.

I have the flowers for their beauty but in the end they all go to the BIRDS!

Blue Jays love our day old bread!

We have every variety of  woodpecker and they all LOVE SUET!    Then again that is what the Black Bear wanted to rip the feeder down for.

Never saw this one before unless it looks different in the winter.

Morning Dove hangs out waiting for their turn too.

I caught this one in mid slip,  from a frosty roof , OOPS is my caption .  lol

I worried about this Blue Jay, as his head feathers looked horrible .

Well I have taken up so much of your time with the birds who visit  our yard, here in NH,USA  I will let you go but thanks again for stopping by and letting me know what you think.

Peace

With the mild winter we had everything including the Lilacs, grew like crazy!  I took about 1/3 off all off them so my home would once again smell incredible.  I think if they get to tall I will miss their smell.

lol
