Vintage tins just listed

I just listed three sets of vintage tins on Vintage Recycled.  I am cleaning out my stash and thought these tins would be perfect for the mixed media, steampunk, or jewelry artist.  Here is a pic of the watch part tins.
They are tiny and the one on the top actually has two tiny watch parts included in it.  More pictures on Vintage Recycled.  See the other two sets of tins there, too.

I also listed another rhinestone cowgirl journal.  This time it features Annie Oakley.  She's my favorite cowgirl from the Old West.
Met a new dealer at Merchant Square last Saturday when and she came to my booth to look around while I was there fluffing!  Her name is Rhonda and she has a blog called A Little Bit French.  Please visit her blog and have a look around.  You'll love her work.  And you can see a few of the items she bought from my booth on Saturday -- booties, pearl necklace, perfume bottle.  Please scroll on down through her blog and see why Rhonda and I are kindred spirits!  She loves the same things I do and she is a mixed media artist!!  How cool is that?!

Lastly, I had the unfortunate experience of being stung by a bark scorpion on Monday afternoon.  I can honestly tell you that IT HURT!!!  And the numbness in my toes, face and scalp didn't help!  It took a little over 24 hours to recover from that experience, and it was awful.  That scorpion managed to get 4 stings in on my leg before I could get my shorts off to get rid of it.  Never saw it, don't know where it was that it could get on my thigh, but it did.  Little beast.  Ice packs and Benadryl help relieve the symptoms.  
Nasty creatures.  This is what they look like.  I find them in the sticky traps I have set in my garage.  Don't find too many in the house.  But the one that got me on Monday was in the laundry room and a big a surprise. 

I'm on a first name basis with my pest control man -- Logan.  He's coming again tomorrow to spray the inside of the house again.  Hope it gets that little pissant that stung me.

A bug Man sounds like a better plan than a cat, mine just sits there and looks at the monsters. I think you are the first person I've known that reported being stung more than once. That had to have been awful for you.

Judy--those tins are so cute!

Euw scorpions!!! Last year, I counted 22 in the house over the Summer months! The year before that I was stung on the shoulder in bed...

This year I only found one and it was on top of the washing machine! I had to call for my hubby to kill it. :)

Judy--OMG!!! That is terrible that you were stung so many times! Just awful! It hurts so much!

After I was stung, I'm so FREAKED out by them now...I even slept with the light on for a year and I still shake my clothes and shoes.

I've lived here all my life and had never even seen one until a few years ago. eek!

Oh Judy, I'm so glad you're ok. That does look like a nasty creature, and in your laundry room....how creepy. I hope you don't mind, but I have been following Rhonda's blog for some time now and when she posted about opening a shop at Merchant Square a little while ago, I left her a comment telling her about your blog and shop at Merchant! You are both some extremely talented ladies!!
