Skyland Drive is OPEN! and it’s time to say goodbye to my little friend…

Yes, it’s time to say goodbye to my little starfish. I have been wanting to change it for quite some time now. I worried you guys wouldn’t know it was me. He was a my security blanket.  He’s what you saw when I left my comments. He’s been around since I started my blog.

Yes, It’s a little sad. But truthfully……he was starting to get on my nerves.
It was time for a change. Change is good. And I'm ready for some changes.

Now you will see me!


I’m over there on my sidebar. Under my etsy-mini.

Yes, my Etsy shop, SKYLAND DRIVE, is open!

I have some vintage items listed. It took longer then I had imagined to get all the photos and descriptions done. Plus, the holidays sort of slowed things down a bit. But now that I have a handful of items listed I will plug away at adding more. And I will be adding some handmade items too. It was the initial listing that was stressing me out. Now that it’s over and up and running I feel more relaxed. Not totally, but more so. :)

Thanks you for all of your sweet words of encouragement. I really appreciate it so very much. 
You guys are like my own personal cheerleaders. I love that!

I hope you’ll visit often and see what items I will be listing.

And feel free to spread the word about Skyland Drive!
Thanks so much you guys!

  26. Congratulations Anita, and nice to *see* you! I like the name SkylandDrive too. I grew up on a street named Gerkin (always called "the pickle street) so I don't think I'd want to use it, although I have some wonderful memories of that street :) Good luck with your shop.

  28. Congrats, Anita! The photos in the shop are so pretty, simple and elegant. Way to go!!
