New Project

Hi all- you may have noticed I haven't been updating as often lately as I have previously. That's because I'm working on a new project- my Etsy shop! In the future I won't mention it much here, but just this once I would appreciate you all taking a look. I've got vintage housewares, accessories, and collectible glass. I will be adding handmade goods in the near future. Thanks for the love!
