26 days to go

We are trying to find a place to live when we move and in the process of trying to worm our way around the 80lb dog limit at all the local apartments. We are hoping to convince them that despite her being "a big girl," she is sweet as a peach and truly sleeps 12-20 hours a day.

Rainy Days Surprises

It has been overcast and rainy all day! My kind of day and to top it off I got several "surprises" today that made it even better.

I gave away a bunch of stuff on craigslist today and the lady who came and picked them up brought me a gift bag of Belgium Chocolates. She and I talked for about 15 minutes and it was just a really good reminder that there are kind people still out there

Secondly, I was excited to get the mail today because I knew that a skirt I ordered from Gaia Conceptions was coming today. This was my Valentine's gift from Phil and I am really in love with it. They also threw in a free organic scarf...bonus!! It is my favorite Etsy store.

Don't mind the spots all over the mirror or the comatose dog in the background (we think there may be a gas leak:)

I also received a suprise package from my mom. She knit me a hat and scarf for the coldness of the NorthWest!

Treasury Love

Sweet...more love for A Hundred Sparrows.

One of my Etsy items was featured in the great Elephant treasury on Etsy.  I just love this site. I made another sale this week and I am loving it, can't wait to really get it set up and filled with great finds and more homemade pieces.

Things are a bit of a whirlwind right now, pretty much selling off the majority of our possessions (or giving them away).  We are taking a small trailer with us but that means no furniture and paring down the essentials.  We have a little over a month to go and A LOT to do.

February Family Pic

Phil and I got to enjoy a night out last night...sushi! We had a a lot of fun and were grateful to our friends Matt and Salena for keeping Elias for us.

Here's our family photo for the month.

On a different note: I have my Etsy shop up and running. For now it's pretty basic (and bare)...mostly vintage, a few handmade things. I wanted to get it set up and then when things settle down* in a few months I plan on developing it more and really putting a good amount of time and energy into.

*we got an offer on our house and are waiting to see if the potential buyers can get the financing they need..looks like we may be in the great North West in a few months time...we'll see!!
