Awesome Etsy Artist Feature



You all know the saying "It's a small world" well that even includes the wonderful world of Etsy. A few weeks back I received a very nice convo from someone right in my own back yard..to my surprise she went to school with my husband and his brother and knows my in-laws. I was so excited to know that I was not the only one in our neck-of-the-woods who is on Etsy.

I would like you to meet Cindy from cjoriginals...here are a few words she has to say on her love for all things vintage (we share the same love by the way :)).....

Well, I started my Etsy shop (July 2007) after my sister and niece started theirs and encouraged me to also. I love vintage linens...the colors, the feel and the memories....just seeing these items inspires me to recycle them into something else...others see a beautiful print tablecloth..I see a tote or a little girls coat and hat! To me this is a wonderful way to preserve Grandma's beloved linens and truly enjoy them everyday instead of putting them in a drawer hidden away.
My Grandmother was a seamstress in Smethport for MANY years, working until she was in her 80's and my mother made most all clothing for my sister and I when we were growing up..so I guess it runs in the family!!

I hope you enjoy my little shout out for this truly talented fellow Etsian and my new "friend" right here in McKean Co Pa!

Please stop by her wonderful shop and take a look at all of her great creations she has to offer...you will be glad you did!

That's wonderful that you have a new friend who is also a talented Etsy artist! It's so funny because...I LOVE vintage tablecloths too (one of my favorite things) and in fact just posted a picture of a bunch I found at an antique shop. Thanks for introducing CJ Originals...I just hearted her shop too. :)

You are so right about it being a small world. How lucky you are to have 'found' each other. :)
