Etsy Organization

I like to use display items to enhance the products that we list on Etsy.  Unfortunately, storing these items in boxes just wasn't working.  It was time to organize.  An old cubby holds some vintage photos, ceramic and wooden pieces. etc.  I purchased inexpensive canning jars to hold the remaining items: dominoes, game pieces, clothespins, office goods, etc.  Vintage fish bowls hold blocks and milk bottle cap magnets (which we include with each Etsy purchase) and a $1.00 box holds ribbon.  Business cards are stored in an old metal truck. Now it is easy to find what I need, when I need it.

Weather Woes

Wisconsin (like much of the country) continues to have weather woes - hot temperatures and no rain.  We keep wondering when it will end.  Is relief in sight soon?  Our lawn is dry, crunchy and yellow.  Trees are losing their leaves.  Watering is limited to potted plants (and some trees) at this time.  Viewing photos of my flowers from earlier in the summer offers some respite.  Hoping for better days soon.
