After yesterday's beautiful sunny day and clear blue skies we are back to pouring rain here in England and apparently it is here to stay for at least a few days! Yesterday I grabbed the opportunity and got outside and photographing some of my new stock for my Etsy site. My shop is now the fullest it has ever been and I have the most items I have ever had listed in my shop, exciting stuff!!

A massive thank you to everyone who has supported me whether that be by following me on twitter or facebook, reading my blog and being one of my blog followers, buying from me, featuring me, retweeting something I have written, favouriting some of my work, leaving a comment on my blog or telling someone about my little site, it all is really appreciated :) . I really feel so lucky to be able to do what I love doing so much and have the support of so many people and I hope that my little business will continue to grow :). Thank you!!!!
This week for my Feature Friday I am featuring Kendra who runs a wonderful shop called
Kenda lives is Oregon in the U.S which is where she was raised and sells all things vintage, from jewellery to typewriters and from clothing to games. Kendra lived with her grandparents until she moved away for college and therefore she grew up being mature for her age and is still kindly described as an 'old soul'! By living with people who were raised through the Depression, Kendra gained an appreciation for the high level craftsmanship of most vintage goods. She feels that selling them on her Etsy site is not only a wonderful example of re-using and recycling but also about appreciating quality from another era and I couldn't agree more.
For this feature Kendra also gave me a beautiful quote which she feels sums up her motivation and enthusiasm for running her vintage shop and also her closeness to her grandparents:
"It's one of nature's ways that we often feel closer to distant generations than to the generation immediately preceding us." - Igor Stravinsky
Here are some of my favourite items in Kendra's shop:

Have a wonderful weekend
