Aunt Sisters' Picks

11Jun/14

It’s a…BOY and a…GIRL….Beach Time and more

In the past week we have learned the sex of our grandbabies due in October..Aunt Sister Cindy's son and daughter in law are having a boy and Aunt Sister Deb's son and daughter in law are having a girl!   Both are due in October.  Add to that our participation in the Handmade Harvest Festival in Bethpage, TN and it's going to be a busy month!

In addition, Aunt Sister and I have been taking an Etsy seller seminar and have learned and put into effect a few new things in our shop and in our social media connections.    Now, besides our accounts on instagram: auntsisterspicks, and Twitter:  AuntSisterCindy and AuntSisterDeb, we also have an account on pinterest:  AuntSistersPick (we had to leave off the s as it was too many characters).   We have also rewritten our story and about sections and these "new" additions will soon appear in our shop.

We always invite you to look at our daughter's shop:  www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered

We would now like to invite you to look at another daughter's shop, just opened this week, at:  www.etsy.com/shop/QueSuertePY

Finally, Aunt Sister Cindy is taking the next two weeks off at the beach in South Carolina for much needed R & R.   What that means to you is that Aunt Sister Deb will be holding down the fort and continuing to ship linens, BUT other items will NOT be shipped until Monday June 30th.  We thank you in advance for your patience.

Happy thrifting!

Spring, Trips, and Weddings

It's cloudy, spitting snow, windy and cold here today, but, it's March and ALMOST spring.  Daylight savings begins Sunday!   Birds are singing, daffodils have bloomed and the iris and tulips are putting out their new "green".

I had a short "pickin" trip yesterday at my usual haunts and came home with a few new sheets, some cute, cute, cute glasbake mugs and 2 children's lightweight sleeping bags--one is Star Wars and the other is Care Bears.   Now, for some sun and a little less wind so I can take pictures and list these items. 

Aunt Sister and I are planning a picking trip next week to southern middle Tennessee and will update you during the day with whistles and tweets and instagram messages.   If you're not following us already, we're "auntsisterspicks" on instagram, too, just to keep it simple.   We "tweet" at Aunt Sister Deb and Aunt Sister Cindy.

We'd like to ask for your ideas....one of ours is getting married in May and we're working on the rehearsal dinner.  The venue is "out in the woods" and the food will be bbq and part of the entertainment and fun will be a square dance.   What we need are decoration ideas--the tablecloths and napkins, centerpieces, and more.   The number of guests will be 50-55, so about 6-8 tables.   Please, flood us with your crafty, fun, over the top, you gotta do this decorating ideas!

As always, check out Half Sky Covered at:  www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered  for her latest additions.

Stay warm and keep on pickin'!
