The waiting is over. "Wires 'n Pliers" opened at 1000Markets, today!

¡Celebrate! Wooohooo!

Introducing my new Shop:
Wires 'n Pliers ~ House of Tor
located at (aka 1KM)
click that green 1km above
Pass the word, and stop by for a visit. This site is still in the "Sneak Preview" mode, as it is only several months old now (still being tweaked and turned), and soon 1KM with be having a 'coming out' party. Don't be surprised if you start hearing about some new and exciting place called 1000 Markets, and when it rings a bell, remember you heard it here first.

One of the nicest things about this site is that payments are made directly through Now isn't that easy?

On the edge of my seat,

As of this posting I am waiting with bated breath for my approval from a juried site called 1000Markets (aka -1KM). I have had an account there since January, but until now I hadn't loaded any items in nor asked for approval to sell.

Now I am waiting my answer. Will I be allowed to sell?

A Little Off the Subject of Jewelry - Yet a Nice Veering It Is:

How can anyone say no to this?Can you?

If this isn't the cutest thing I have ever seen. I almost want to go out and buy or even borrow a dog, just to have a chance for it to wear one of these "chic" cowls.

I found them at Tarja's shop at, named EmmaCharlesPhotoPlus and Tarja has a passion for art whether it be yarn art (as shown here) or digital art (which is also shown here) in her listing's picture. She has these cool, chic cowls in other colors, too.

So check out her shop, and I would like to take this moment to wish Tarja a big Happy Birthday on April 6th (coming up real soon now).
And Tarja, congrats for placement on the daily email:
"Etsy Finds: Fashionable in Fur"
That's "F u r," as in the fur of our fourlegged Pet's. It's a Pet Parade! Of all 9 items in this wonderful emailing, Tarja's cool neck cowl certainly was the schizzle!
Tarja and I have something in common, too. We both shoot with Nikon D60's. YaY!
