Birds of a Feather Group Auction on FEEbay

Sometimes you need a kick in the behind. And my group, very eloquently did that for me...without even knowing it.

To Dwell In Primitive Thymes (TDIPT) is doing a group listing on ebay. All things with wings, and especially birds.

I was looking at the items already listed, and I was drooling. I just might have to make a few unforseen purchases this week! Everything is so lovely!

Here is my piece:


So run, don't walk, over to FEEbay, today through the 21rst, and type in TDIPT in the search engine to see all of the winged beauties! Here's the link: TDIPT on EBAY

Oh Yes I Did!

I closed my ebay store!

Will I occasionally sell on ebay? Yes!

But for now, I have decided to make a point, and let ebay know (in a grain of sand sort of way) that they cannot get away with their big shot ways without concequence.

So I guess this means I better get serious about getting a website ready!

In the meantime, I will sell on etsy, and on my galleries every month. And occasionally, on ebay, in auction style format, along with my artsy sisters.

And, of course, I will start to offer things here, in my dusty, little, Chickadee Annex.

Now, how about an update on Miller Blue!

Miller is approximately 7 months old, granting that the information that he was surrendered with is accurate.

His Mama was finally adopted and will undergo a complete hip replacement using funds raised by the RI SPCA. Orthopedists say this is due to a trama, poor thing. She's only three! Miller's sister has been found to have a broken rib that went unattended as well, and has healed improperly. So it's safe to say that they were definately abused, as well as neglected, and it makes me so angry!

Miller has probably tripled in weight since we got him in December. I realized last night, while watching him sleep, his intercostals (in between ribs) has grown. He had no real rib cage when he got here...his little body was very "flat". He looked like he was 120 years old, and his eyes had no expression. He could have passed for a stuffed dog.

Now he's got little buns, and little muscles all over. He makes funny, chirping and howling noises when I am preparing his supper. But he is still frightened when I have the food dish in my hands..He's finishing up his first puppy class, where we opted for socialization in leux of obedience. He has made HUGE strides! So we will be doing another puppy class, and this time, focusing on obedience more, as he is now a typical, and somewhat manic, puppy.

Here's a picture of Miller and his big brother, Marshall, after knocking me over onto the floor as I tried to get a picture of them..

Aren't we all lucky to have found one another...

Hugs and Kisses!

February Offerings on Simply Primitives

I am longing for Spring! I bet you all are too, especially if you're a New Englander!!

I waited for supplies I needed for my Early Works piece, but to my dismay, they haven't come. So i will be on vacation from the site this month. Please go by and enjoy the beautiful things created by my "sisters" though. They are all unique and amazing!

Peekaboo Bunny is my first offering for Simply Primitives. I am selling the pattern as well, if you want to give him a whirl. He is as cute as a button, and perfect for Spring and Easter decor.



And I love this tissue box. Inspired by the vintage graphic added to it, painted in a soft, seafoam green, with a white ruffle for fun. Great for Easter, and you could use it through the Spring as well..all year if you have a chic or victorian home.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
