LilacsNDreams Ecrater Artfire Etsy Ebay Shops

 

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!

New Blog Blogger Blogging Addy to Follow

 

 

New Blog Blogger Blogging Addy to Follow. Hello everyone, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you visiting, and hope all are having a wonderful Tuesday as well.

Couple of weeks ago I ran into an issue that I thought was simple, but became harder to resolve than I thought it would. Not knowing for sure if things could be fixed, no definite answers, I did what I knew to do….start a new blog. I redirected my .com domain right away, and went to work building my blog again with all the pages, and then to try and notify everyone. At least trying to get the word out about the changes, and why the sudden urgency for all of it. Since that time things have been reinstated with the old blog, but I have the new blog too. Did some revising of things a bit, and applied a few more things I have learned along the way. So, I will keep the new blog addy, and have gone to the old blog and changed my URL addys that will bring you to my new blog, or maybe the new blog pages I have now too.

I am still selling with some of the same places, and it is only the blog addy that has changed at this time. So, that new addy to come visit me at is LilacsNDreams Blog OR you can use the .com by visiting LilacsNDreams. Another main page with my blog is LilacsNDreams Shoppe Blog OR  again use the .com for that by visiting LilacsNDreams Shoppe.

See some of my products with my at stores at Ecrater, Artfire, Etsy, and some are with Ebay as well. Thanks for taking the time to visit with LilacsNDreams everyone, and hope to see you again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Vintage Collectibles Repurposed Upcycled Weekend

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.

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.

I take joy in doing online sales, and have been doing them since 2004.

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!:)

Cottage Style Decorating For Your Homes by LilacsNDreams

Cottage Style Decorating For Your Homes by LilacsNDreams

Having the cottage style home is light, airy, fresh, fun, and original.  In today’s style they often incorporate soft palettes of greens, blues, yellows, shades of lilacs, and pinks too. Sometimes you may show things brightened with some brisk colors used as well. Using pastels for color, some pretty florals, and with some vintage home accessories gives your home that cozy cottage style.

Using lace handkerchiefs, some lace trims, fragrance candles, and those sweet smelling soaps, a comfortable rocking chair, wallpapers, fabrics are just so yummy in the home of cottage styles. Sometimes glassware will be used whether it is clear, or a slight coloring that sparkles in the light will be displayed. Visual some of those furniture slip covers that are inviting, some vintage style upholstery, and of course the layers of weathered paint. Gotta love that chippy paint.

A cottage style decorating can surface anywhere. Attitude is also what can make the house cottage. Depending on the house locatetion I sometimes have seen seaside, shells, and sailboats incorporated with the decor too.

Today’s expressions of cottage style is the thought of flea markets, using fresh flowers, vintage patterns, and a bit of romance with it too.  A warm welcoming feeling to all who visit. 

I love cottage style homes, and wish I had all that with our home.  A working progress. I admire the style when I see it in books, and by many who share their homes with all of us. Which style of home are you?

Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams, and come back often to read, share with us here, and you are free to make comments. All are welcome. When in roam visit my LilacsNDreams Artfire Store, and my LilacsNDreams Ecrater Store. Maybe you will find something to fit with your cottage style homes. Don’t forget to visit my main LilacsNDreams Blog too. Little more to see there, and roam with.
