A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

This is the first day of spring, the sun is out and I am very grateful to be here, able to enjoy all my life has to offer. Today is a good day, and because of someone thoughtful enough to help, I was able to share with you a couple of baskets I wove. I have some of the best friends anyone could ask for on chat groups located on ebay. The 2 groups I belong to are P.E.P which stands for painting ebay pretty and RRSC which is RaspberryRoseSellersClub. Whenever you go into ebay, just type these initials in the search area and you will see some of the most talented artists you can imagine. I really don't believe I could have achieved what I have without the help of so many talented and friendly ladies. Their hearts and minds are always open, there when you need them. For this I say a huge "thankyou."
I love selling on ebay and I love this group of artists. My love of roses is what brought them to me. I believe there are no accidents, and it was no accident that I found them....or they found me. The one thing we have in common is the love of shabby, cottage, vintage finds, anything roses, that can be sewn, or painted. Anything that isn't nailed down becomes fair game once there is a paint brush in someones hands. I had to laugh and will always remember when one of my P.E.P girlfriends shared a picture of the aftermath of a huge ice storm. One of the wooden posts to her garage was painted with a vine and roses! Forget the fallen trees and all the debris, I loved that post!!!
There are many changes occuring on ebay right now. I guess you could say they are going through some growing pains. There are many of us that are not happy with all this. We have taken to search for other selling venues and options. Don't get me wrong, we are still to be found on ebay, but we are also conquering many other avenues as well. You can find me on a wonderful website called Etsy. This is not an auction, but a great place to find handmade items created by wonderful artists all over the country. Just go in and have a look, you buy your item out right and it's yours. You can find me there at www.SomeplaceInTime.Etsy.com. There is nothing more satisfying that embracing something that someone put their love and time into creating. My wish is for you today is to enjoy peace, health and happiness.

Hi Char,
I just found your blog through PEP and am amazed at how beautiful your baskets are! It blows me away to think of how difficult they must be to make. Great job on your blog, too! I'm off to check out your things on Etsy next.

Cleo, your kind words are worth so much to me. I thankyou so much.
Patricia, I love to weave and am so glad that you find joy in looking at them. I think it may be time to rotate those for others.
