Member Feature: Nancy

I am still writing all the posts myself, so we do not yet have daily posts. However, the plan is to have no less than three per week, and this week, I have not made the quota. If you want to exercise your writing muscle by guest posting, drop me an email!

Nancy is always willing to be involved, engage in challenges, and is always chipping away at her hoard. She has two shops on Etsy and one on Artfire, and maybe more that I have missed. Her items on Etsy carry the 'teamhoardersunite' tag, and many also sport our badge. If you have not yet begun to use the badge, but you would like to, you can find it on our Yahoo Groups Page. It is in the Files section, and is called HUavatar3.jpg.

Victorian Visions by Nanalee on Etsy carries a mix of vintage and vintage inspired items that are a must see. I love this 1934 boxed card game of Rook!There is also a green and white crocheted vintage apron that I have my eye on. It would go great paired with her cocktail button ring for some retro-kitchen-bread-baking photo ops. You could get in a good game of Rook while the bread bakes and fills the house with the aromas of bygone days.

Her second Etsy shop called The Mail Bag carries cards, bookmarks, desk accessories, gift tags and other needful paper items.Do you know someone who has had a recent accomplishment? Opened an Etsy store? Started a blog? Made the advanced drama class? Had a baby? This card is for you - - for them. Just proud of your teen for a job well done? Congratulate her (and include a coupon for unlimited hugs and kudos). This card is happy, upbeat, colorful, and right in your budget!

You might also want to visit Nancy on Artfire at The Chickadees' Nest to snap up a lovely vintage tea setting for your curio cabinet. Or, you might want to use this beautiful cup on your deck in the early morning to sip coffee or tea and watch the birds flutter in their birdbath.Either way, it will lift your spirits to hold this delicate vintage piece. Even more so if you have an equally delicate crocheted doily upon which to display your find.

Wander on over and support your fellow hoarder...
