Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Monday, Monday...

My day got off to a propitious start when I found one of my toys featured in this stellar treasury:

--Pinned with TreasuryPin.com
Unfortunately I don't know how to post the whole thing, so you'll have to go to this link to see all 16 items:

I enjoyed this collection very much. I remember playing with some of these toys. Chances are, you do too--if you're a baby boomer, anyway. The curator has a charming shop on Etsy, and I hope you'll take a look at it. I appreciate her featuring my item in her treasury so much!

It was overcast this morning, so I took advantage of the good lighting conditions to take some outdoor photographs of items I acquired over the weekend. My husband and I stumbled upon a terrific sale! The proprietors formerly owned an antique store, and they were clearing out wonderful items for a fraction of their worth just to downsize. It was a heady experience. I came home with a large boxful of goodies for the Peppy shop. I'll show you a few:

Speaking of MyPalPeppy, I had good news that Nikki,the senior special-needs dog we've been helping out, has been adopted. That's really encouraging, because not everyone wants to risk getting attached to a dog that hasn't many years left, particularly if that dog has any health issues.

 After communicating with Christy of DisplacedPetsRescue.com, I've decided that, for the next few months, Peppy's shop donations will go directly into the veterinary care fund as opposed to sponsoring a specific dog by defraying adoption fees. That appears to be the greater need at present. For those of you new to this blog, MyPalPeppy supports animal rescue by giving 15% of the purchase price of every item sold to this organization.

After slogging away in front of the computer all morning and half the afternoon, I decided to jump in feet first with a project I've had in mind for months. I'm reorganizing a big storage bin and a chest of drawers in the top of our barn so I can keep better track of my Etsy "inventory" and get some of the accompanying clutter out of the house. I made a good start, but I'll have to do a lot more, plus devise some kind of list to help me keep track of which item is where

When I first started selling on Etsy, it wasn't much of a problem. I could fit everything into a cardboard box or two and keep it in my sewing room closet. No longer! I've got stuff stashed all over the place and it's often a case of quiet desperation when someone orders an item and I find I can't remember where I've stowed it. I hope I can complete this task before the week is out because I haven't really much hair left to tear out.
