Monday shopping on Etsy

Monday, June 4, 2012

Before I head out for another wonderful session of Chinese torture at the physical therapist this afternoon (I am bound and determined she will not make me cry today) I thought I would sit down and write a new post.


I have decided that as this is day 18 after the big surgery, I am going to try and get back into a more normal routine, as much as possible. Yes, I am still using a walker, but I am hoping that I will graduate to a cane soon. That will make it easier to get around. In the meantime, I have a few new goodies that I thrifted and photographed, for the shop, before I went into surgery, and I plan to start listing those this week. (hmmm, now just what did I do with that camera?)

Since today is Monday, I thought I would kick off the week with my usual Shopping on Etsy post. Hope you enjoy my finds. Please click on the price below the item to see the listing on Etsy.

Set of three reclaimed cedar planters.


Hand carved duck decoy


Lavender sachets


Vintage fishing pole tackle box


Coconut wood Heishi stacking bead bracelet


Blue and yellow vintage farmhouse table


I'm sure you noticed that I added in some things for Dad this week. Don't forget Father's Day is coming up.

Thanks again to everyone for hanging in there with me while I am going through my recovery. I keep reading that short term recovery for a knee replacement is 1-3 months. I hope my patience holds out, because I am not used to all of this inactivity. In the meantime, I will be trying to catch up on some blog reading this week. Maybe it will make the time go bay faster, when I am reading all of your wonderful posts. 



  1. I've been keeping my fingers crossed that your new knee works out for you (only because I've heard horror stories)!

  2. Laura,
    I've been thinking about you since your surgery. Sounds like your recuperation is proceeding uneventfully, which is a good thing.
    The cedar planters are great - so many possibilities! Love the farmhouse table, too!

  3. Great finds ... thanks for sharing. Inactivity is hard but you know that recovery is a process and the better you are as a patient, the quicker you will be back on your feet, doing the tango!

  4. It's good to hear from you. I hope you have a speedy recovery and your Chinese torture is not too bad!Cool stuff. I must get some lavender planted! Love the sachets.

  5. Great items and I like the Dad items!

  6. I hope therapy goes better...I don't like to think of you crying! I love those cute lavender sachets! Think I'll look on Etsy! We just got back to Florida and I've got a ton of things to do...but need a break! Take care of yourself!

  7. PT is always such a chore when you are going thru it but, so worth it. It's very amazing. I love the finds you got. I just may have to spend some of my Yard Sale cash on your stash!hehhehe. Keep smiling :D

  8. Great finds! I think getting into a new routine is an excellent idea. Just take it a day at a time. Wish you well!

  9. "love that therapy" but you'll be better sooner..ugh. Good finds. Love the bracelet.

  10. Glad to hear your hanging in there. You've got some great stuff! I need to get out to some sales. I've been trying to get our yard in shape. Good luck at therapy!

  11. Laura,

    Thank you so much for featuring my bracelet here. Your finds are outstanding and you even showed some of my all time favorites.

    Knee surgery is brutal and it is awesome that you are finding these distractions to keep your sanity :D. I pray that your recovery is on the 1 month side of things.

    Blessings!! Jodi
