New Etsy Venture

I've been thinking for months now about opening a vintage jewelry and accessory shop on Etsy and I finally did it this weekend!
After many name ideas (and searches for originality!), I decided to call it Like Bette in honor of my favorite movie actress of all time, Bette Davis.
She was full class and style and didn't everyone want to wear the fashion of the day as well as Bette did?
So, come visit me asap at for some fabulous (hopefully..) stuff!

It's Time...

....time that I start posting here again. In case you were wondering, I'll tell you the reason I haven't in several months.

On April 16th of this year my DH (as he was known in this blog) Hugh, finally lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He was so much of my life, in and out of this little house, that I would be remiss not to share this news with my readers.
Four and a half months later, I'm doing better than I expected thanks to the love of family and friends,
who all have such an important role in my life that I never realized until now.

So now that my mind is clearer and my Etsy store is having it's best month ever, it's time to get back to it.

I'm blessed to be able to stay in this little house on Stuart Road, at least for awhile, and bask in the memories of life with my husband, and make some new ones without him. I don't want this to be a widow's blog and probably will never be this personal again, but I hope you will keep following anyway.
