2014 Grow Your Blog Party

Welcome to Inglewyck!

I am so glad you could join me here and I would like to thank Vicki of 2 Bags Full for hosting this wonderful party.


Are you wondering about the name?  

 I recently created this blog and moved some of my posts from my old Typepad blog Iantha's Ink, to this my new blog Inglewyck.  That blog was created several years ago with the intent of it being used as a Stampin' Up business blog.  I had used it for business and for personal. I want this blog to cover more of my personal and other craft interests not just stamping.  A bit of my decision is financial, free vs $14 a month.  Hindsight tells me I should have made this decision some time ago.  But then hindsight is 20/20. 

Why I didn't just use Iantha's Ink here?  Well I wanted something catchy that didn't say "this is a stamping blog" or "this is a sewing blog."  Something that was not so specific where it wouldn't seem out of place to post stamping, crafts, antiquing, travel, decorating, costuming or just mindless rambling.  I had actually used the name Inglewyck Hall some time ago when I had a site on the old MSN Groups. That site was devoted to my participation in the Society for Creative Anachronism and Anglo-Saxon history. If you have looked at my posts there are a couple about the SCA here and will probably be more in the future, as well as more on my other hobbies and crafts. I also had a group about travel and archaeology and one about Egyptology. So here you will get to know a little bit about all of my interests, I hope you come again to share in the adventure.

If you happen to come upon a couple of posts that are missing photos and are wondering were they went, well when I moved my blog from Typepad and I thought how easy just copy and paste. LOL! Really I totally wasn't thinking and when I had the Iantha's Ink blog deactivated all the content was removed and the pics disappeared here as well. If I had been thinking from back when the MSN groups had to be relocated because they were being closed I had the same issue. MSN had a system were they migrated all the content to Multiply but of course multiply was not the same so the posts were all messed up and the pics disappeared when MSN shut down. I did it to myself this time. So bear with me as I continue to replace the pictures  in the posts. 

Thanks for stopping by

Such a Find

I love to go antiquing and thrifting, don't you? You never know what treasures you are going to find.

Look what I scored at the Thrift store today!! The Complete Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. Did I tell you that I love all things Archaeological! And only $7.90 for the whole set, a steal.

Of course Miss Millie could not resist getting into the photo shoot.

I also got this set of globe bookends, love the travel theme.

Miss Mil is checking them out.

Not a bad price for the set?

And I absolutely love this little llama vase. 

Isn't he adorable? I don't know if he is an antiquity or modern but he was reasonable at $10.00, no tag to show you as the Antique Mall took it off. When you look at the bottom there is what looks like a provenance tag, as though it might have been in someone's collection.

Digging Out in St Louis

Today was cold and snowy. 
Below are some photos that I took throughout the day. 
I hope all of you are staying warm and safe.
