Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Wow! Been a while again since I was here, and I do apologize for the schedule delays of posting here with my wordpress blog. I had the issue with having a new blog addy with my other blog. Then….I had an issue with my computer, and spent a whole weekend, and into the following week working with it. Still not completely where it was before, but it is working, and I can use it. I lost some things, found some things, and then lost them again. I am not computer literate, so that makes it even longer to get things done and understand them too.
WOW! Where has this month of June gone too? Seems like we just got started with it, and here we are at the end of it almost already too. Won’t be much longer, and it will be the 4th of July. Besides blog, and computer I have been trying to get pictures done again for listings in my shops that I would like to do. I have some things sitting out to repurpose too. Was hoping to do that tonight, but not sure if I will make it that far yet. I took pictures of about 5 different items, downloaded them, and now I have to get them all revised with sizes to work for my listings at the shops I have. I have been working on moving inventory into my Ecrater Shop including my repurposed items too. I still have things with Artfire. I am waiting on items to expire at Etsy, and will move those over to Ecrater too. I know some have not heard of Ecrater, and wonder if they are worth using for selling. They are free to list at, you only pay your fees with your payment services that you use, you are allowed up to 10 photos for each item, and when I check for some of my listings in the search engines….Ecrater is good about showing before some of the other shops I have. So, for the site being all free I think that is pretty darn good. I still have items I will list at Ebay as well. That is because I am trying to change my inventory, and make room for more. Along with moving that has been planned for quite some time now as well.
So, when you have a chance stop by to visit my shops. Any questions give me a holler. I can generally invoice you myself with Paypal, and Google Checkout or as it is becoming official now…Google Wallet. Just let me know if that is what you want, and your preference too.
Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams. Have a wonderful weekend, and come back to visit again soon now!

Vintage, Collectibles, Repurposed, Upcycled Weekend.
Hello everyone, and thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Always happy to see you, and glad you visited as well. Here it is our first Friday for May, and into the weekend we are going. Any big plans? Will you be relaxing, maybe thrifting, visiting some yard sales, or maybe have plans with the family/friends too. Whatever it is I hope that you all enjoy the weekend.
No special plans really for me this weekend. Work on the yard…which we had some storms happen about halfway through me mowing. Bad enough for the sirens to go off. Got through that, and all is well again. Now, back to my plans. I was thinking of getting some painting done, at least getting done around the trim. Fill in a couple of cracks in the ceiling. Then…I was hoping to work on some listings for my stores. Downsizing my collections, and inventory. Making room for us to be moving in a few months I hope…if all goes well. Will sure packing a lot easier. It will also make room for me to go shopping again in a new area, new thrift stores, different yard sales, and some wonderful flea markets too. Getting excited for that! Then, I can also focus more with repurposing some items I keep looking at here, and getting a little bit more done in that area too.
Whatever your plans may be this weekend I hope you enjoy them, have fun, and do all you wish to do. Hey, while doing your list of things….don’t forget to relax too! When you are roaming the internet feel free to visit my stores to see my collections being offered, and to watch for more items to be added too. See me at Artfire, Ecrater, Etsy, and find me on Ebay as LilacsNDreams also. I am offering vintage, collectibles, repurposed, and some upcycled items too. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me as well. See something you like I would be happy to invoice you personally for such purchases too. Thanks again for visiting everyone, and see you again soon! Take care till the next time.

Vintage Collectibles Repurposed Upcycled Altered Handmade Homemade Treasures Offered at Artfire by Me … LilacsNDreams! Thrift Store, Yard Sale, Flea Market Junkie who loves to treasure hunt, and sometimes junking too! I enjoy finding old vintage collectibles that can be reused again for you. Sometimes some of the treasures found are not in such good shape, only 1 piece from a set, have been neglected, headed to the dumps, and etc. are things that I will rescue, and find a new life for them by repurposing, and upcycling them. I take joy in doing online sales, and have been doing them since 2004.
My main venue is with Artfire, and I also offer items at Ecrater and Etsy too. When not doing this I enjoy spending time with my Blog, and reading other blogs too. So, take some time, and stop on over to visit me with places mentioned. When visiting my Blog make sure to share something, leave a comment, or even say Hi so that I know to come visit with you too!:) Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams today. Look forward to seeing you again. Take Care.
LilacsNDreams Shoppe Blog
Hello, Good Morning, Afternoon, or whatever the time might be to you. Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams!
I had made some changes to my main LilacsNDreams Blog with one of my main pages that is called LilacsNDreams Shoppe. I added another domain to it, and then redirected the other one to my website. Busy, busy, busy. Always a working progress for everything…don’t you find this to be true too? When you have a chance click the links, and you shall go directly there to visit. While there make sure to see all my pages, leave comments, share something, of most of all….leave me a note saying Hi so that I may also come visit with you too.
You will also notice on the main page of my LilacsNDreams Blog that I show my links there for the market places I am selling with at Artfire, Ecrater, and Etsy too. I sell vintage, collectibles, repurposed, upcycled, reused, handmade, homemade, hand altered treasures. If you see something you like give me a holler. I can also bill you directly with an invoice from Paypal, and Google Checkout too. I have been working on some projects at home. Some items were painted from this fall, and I have been working to add some mod podge, a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. I have some more cupcake plates I am working with. 3 of them are matching, and lace is being added to them for a bit more character of the pieces. When I glue things it is a slow process as I like to let things settle each time I do something for more secure applications. Make sure to visit places I have mentioned to see what is now showing, and to watch for more items to come as I complete things, and add them to my inventory.
Again, I would like to thank you so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful Sunday.
Happy New Year From LilacsNDreams! I know, a week later, sorry. Like many others working on that ‘catch’ up of all things after the holidays. WOW! We are already into the second week of the new year for 2012 already. Time just flies, right? Hope the Holidays were good to all of you, and I do wish everyone a prosperous year with achievements in all goals that you have set for yourselves.
Not only have we been busy with house improvements here…don’t know how we are living some days with this mess….but I have started to move some of my inventory to one of my stores as well too. For things vintage, collectibles, and gently used I offer those products at Ecarter. I have another store that I have added inventory to, and have more to add that is for items I have repurposed, upcycled, and altered. You will see some vintage pieces in this store as well which is at Artfire. I enjoy what I do, and it has been frustrating not being able to work with some projects I had scheduled for this winter due to contractors in, and out, moving furniture and things from upstairs to downstairs, and so on to make room. Crossing my fingers that soon it can be done, and I can settle down to work more.
I want to thank you for visiting with LilacsNDreams, and hope to see you again. If you have any questions don’t hesitate in contacting me, and make sure you say Hi when you stop to visit too. I can then come by to see you too. Take care everyone, and see you again soon. Have a super week!
Day Light Savings Time, Set Your Clocks Back an Hour.
Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Glad to see you here, and happy you could visit with me. Just sharing a friendly reminder about the time, and setting your clocks tonight. So, before you go to bed, make sure you put them clocks back an hour. If not, you might have a rude awakening when you see how early you have gotten some where like church, meeting friends, your friendly brunch, work, and so on. Hey, doing this reminder for you helps me remember to do it too. I have 1 clock done, and about 3 more to go:)
Unfortunately, setting the clocks back also reminds us about it being Fall/Winter time too. Brrr! I hate the thought of snow. With the clocks going back an hour it will be getting darker out even much sooner than it has been now. Long dreary nights, and I am sooo looking forwared to spring already….LOL:) Anyway, hope this reminder helps some of you. Thanks again for visiting with LilacsNDreams, and hope to see you again. Have a super weekend everyone!:)
