You may recall that I have been on medical leave for some time and I thought I would have time for more postings. Clearly I haven’t and although not good for this blog there are many wonderful things going on in my life and that is where my attention has had to be. Just one example is that in January our daughter got engaged so we are now looking ahead to a fall wedding. Let the wedding games begin…..
I have considered giving up the blog altogether but my heart is still very much attached to everything Arts & Crafts so I’ve been searching for a way to keep things current and interesting and to be able to post without a great deal of work.
I recently came across a couple of blogs that only feature a “curated list” of items from websites such as Craigslist and Kijiji. This is similar to my Web Wednesday feature so I’ve decided that for the next nine months to a year I can bring you a list of arts and crafts items available in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, Victoria and Seattle. A once a week or once every two-week posting is something that I think I can accomplish. Look for original antique pieces but also modern-day revival/reproduction items in a variety of price ranges and the occasional house listing.
