You oughta' be in pictures, kid....

Uh, yeah.....
That's the idea here, but I am severely stymied, hampered,
vexed (oooooh, that's a fab Jane Austen word!) by the lack
of a decent camera these days. Now, one might ask, how can
a newly minted blogger hope to sustain a readership,
cultivate a business, make friends, build a fanbase (as if, LOL!)
without pretty pictures of shabby treasures?
And shabby treasures I do have, some so lovely
that only a picture will do them justice.

Just imagine if no one had been around to snap images such as this....

Or this......

What fanciful stories these photographs share with us!
And what stories I wish to share with all of you,
the way you have shared your lives and loves and treasures with me, 
inspiring me to leap head first into the wonderful world of being a shop owner.

But first, a camera. Tips? Recommendations?
After all, a picture speaks volumes, and I have a lot to say......

Congratulations on starting your lovely and amusing new blog! As a fellow lover of all things "Jane" and living not far from you in the Texas Hill Country, I was wondering--is your new shop an online venture or is it located in Fredericksburg?

Hi Rita!
My shop is still very much in the organizational stages...I'm taking a fair amount of time laying the groundwork, building up my inventory, creating an online presence, fine-tuning my brand, polishing up my skill-set with regards to knock-em-dead merchandising, re-doing furniture, a novice to this business, I believe very strongly in taking the time to make sure it gets done RIGHT, so no brick and mortar store for me just yet. The first steps will be setting up shop at my local antique mall (in Kerrville), renting a space at the Trade Days events (Fredericksburg), and down the road, going into business with a friend of mine who already owns a shop in Comfort, Texas.

Where are you from, Rita? Would love to say "hi" sometime. :-)

Hello again, Anne!
Sounds like you have a great plan, taking your time while you create a business that is your very own. I look forward to stopping by sometime so do keep us posted with your progress!
I live just down the road in Boerne and work in one of the shops on Main Street.
