It's Raining Men, Cats, Dogs, Buckets, and Frogs

And the gully washers just keep coming.  It has rained every day for the last month, and not light showers, but heavy rain.  I sink ankle deep in my animal yard, and my tomatoes are splitting and rotting on the vine.  The next ten days are forecast for 30-60% chance of more rain.  Can you tell I'm over the rain?  I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO over the rain!

Okay, enough venting.  What have I been doing during all of this rain?  Well, I've been canning a little bit, and I decided to finally get my Etsy shop going.  It's a mixture of vintage and handmade items, and it is giving me a creative outlet and a purpose for my collection of vintage and reclaimed buttons and eventually my collection of felted wool sweaters.  As far as handmade, I've started with button rings, and I've already sold two, so I'm happy about that.  I have a few more ready to list, which I hope to get done at some point this week.

If you are on Etsy, I hope you will add Bottle Tree Farm as one of your Favorite shops, visit often as I add more items, and maybe even buy something that strikes your fancy for you or someone you know.

Here is one of the button rings I listed.

Even though this only has already sold, I wanted to share it because I think it turned out really cute.  You have to scroll down the page past all of the current listings to see it.

Stay dry and happy shopping,
