Let's re-start at the very beginning ...

Hi all,

Welcome to my new and improved blog.  You'll notice that it looks different, but I think you will find that the feel and content will also be a change of pace.

I want to make this blog more fun, more casual, and more varied in 2014.  You'll still find vintage tidbits here, but you might also see a picture of my dogs, chat about books and reading, a retro recipe, or talk about Downton Abbey.  I'm excited about this new approach to blogging, and hope you'll follow and join in with comments.  I would love to chat with YOU here.

Since it's been a long while, I'll re-introduce myself.  My name is Trish.  I live in Georgia with my 16 year old dachshund, Barney Fife, and my 4 year old "doxie-Jack" (dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier mix), Abby.

My business is Birdhouse Books, and I sell vintage children's books and ephemera on eBay, Etsy, and Bonanza.  This year I will also be expanding to some of the book sites (more on that later!).

My previous lives have included bookstore management, teaching preschool, and (during one fun year in college) working as a singing telegram messenger.

When I'm not researching vintage treasures, I enjoy reading (historical fiction, mysteries, children's literature, classics), vegetarian cooking, retro pop culture. music (oldies, jazz, Broadway), and thrifting some more (I know, it's an obsession!).

What else can I tell you?  My favorite color is lime.  I hate mushrooms.  I spend way too much time on Pinterest

There's more to say, but this conversation will continue.  Wishing you a good day (or evening!), and looking forward to chatting more soon.
