|I am getting ready to teach an introduction to website selling soon. In my research I have found the following sites that have fees much like eBay, are free or only charge when you sell a product: |

Here are two pictures showing some metal spears and/or balls that we have found to be a very unique and beautiful way to add to an existing arrangement/venue that you have created. They catch the light while having a vintage antique look that we all love.
They measure from 16 inches around the ball down to 12" around the ball.

People seem to think I own the ability to make a great carrot cake. I always say, if you can read, you can make anything. I am infamous for this cake, so bake it knowing you will be asked to bring it to every large function you attend forever!! I bake it in two commercial baking pans; which happen to fit into the oven I have. I've had ovens where these pans slid in like oven racks and a few ovens were not wide enough for them. You could always fill up every cake pan you own. It freezes well. If you leave it on the counter, you will gain 5 lbs because you can't walk by without taking a bite!
Winchuck Carrot Cake
Cake 8 cups sugar 5 1/2 cups oil (I only use 3 cups and possibly it could take less)
8 cups flour
8 teaspoons baking powder
8 teaspoons baking soda
8 teaspoons cinnamon
4 teaspoons salt
16 carrots shredded/grated
2 cups nuts
2 cups crushed pineapple
4 cups cream cheese
2 cups butter
8 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons vanilla
Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl. (I'm always careful to make sure that the baking powder and baking soda are not lumpy...squish them into powder or get a nasty taste when you hit one). Mix the sugar, eggs and oil with a mixer and then mix the two mixtures together. (Takes a really large bowl) and fold in the carrots and pineapple with nuts. Bake at 225 for 1 1/2 hours
Mix cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla and frost the cake. I sprinkle with add'l nuts. For Halloween, I'm dividing out some frosting for an orange pumpkin and some green for trim.

I have run into a company that allows you to put up on your walls almost any thought you have! Wall Enhancers makes it possible to even create your own sayings and quotes. They also offer hundreds of choices. I am putting just a few of the possibilities for you to see! I think they really add a punch to the rustic decor that I love!
You can order from them by using this link:

Elmo and Lorraine Williams were instrumental in creating Azalea Park as one of our most visited attractions here on the Pacific Northwest Coast. They took a park overrun with blackberries and along with saving the native azaleas, they planted many beautiful trees and flowers. The work was done entirely by volunteers.
Elmo & Lorraine in 1990
Elmo has enlisted the help of the E. Fay Jones Architectural firm who designed the Thorncrown Chapel in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This magnificent wood and glass structure sits in the mist of the beautiful Ozark hills. Thorncrown has won numerous architectural awards and has been featured on NBC Nightly News. It has been in almost every major magazine in the country such as Newsweek and Parade.
The building in Brookings will sit in the mist of native Oregon Azaleas and tall pines. You will walk down a wooded trail, move around a curve and there will be our Lorraine’s Memorial. The name that Elmo chose is, “Capella by the Sea”.
As head of worldwide production at Fox, Elmo and Lorraine met many interesting people such as Johnny Cash, Kirk Douglas, Frank Sinatra, Anthony Quinn, Elizabeth Taylor along with, The Beatles and numerous other famous characters from the film industry. Lorraine made them a comfortable home in each foreign destination learning some of the language and making friends with the people. She was a gracious and loving woman.
The movies that Elmo worked on as Editor, Producer or Cinematographer were:
- The Blue Max
- 20,000 Leaques Under the Sea
- Tora, Tora, Tora
- High Noon
- The Cowboy
- The Longest Day
- The Vikings
- Ernest Goes to Camp
- Soggy Bottom USA
- Sidewinder One
- The Big Gamble
- Hell Ship Mutiny
- Hell Canyon Outlaws
- The Tall Texan
- Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome
- Design for Death
- Apache Warrior
- Blonde Bait
- Follow Me Quietly
- The Miracle of the Bells
- They Won’t Believe Me
- Forever and a Day
- No No Nanette
- Nurse Edith Cavell
- Man, Woman and Child
You can find more about Elmo Williams on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmo_Williams
The Williams family lived in England for many years. For some time they lived across from Buckingham Palace. Lorraine wrote about Prince Phillip waving to her as he took off in his helicopter. They rented a lovely old French Farm house, spent time in Germany, Iran, Afghanistan and traveled to Japan during the making of “Tora Tora Tora”. He has many antiques and movie memorabilia that he is selling.
These items can be found on our website and offered on eBay.Com
The sales from these items will be used to help fund the memorial. I am sure that you will be pleased with the interesting collectibles and antiques that come from this incredible family that loved art, beauty and creativity in any form.

I listed many books on martial arts, alternative medicine, herbs, philosophy, and Far Eastern religions. I know now, that people are really looking for specific topics on older books that may be out of print. A few of the books I recently found at an estate sale are worth much more than I ever imagined. It will be great when I actually sell a book for over $100.00!
To find my Amazon listings isn't as easy as I thought it would be. You either have to follow the link or find a listed book or my feedback area and click on my store name, Winchuck River Store.
Of course, this won't stop me from selling other items on eBay and on my website. Here are a few of the items that I recently purchased from Lazart Productions. I especially love the aspen metal wall hanging. It goes along with the aspen branch I am using to hold my curtains up in the living room. We have an aspen grove of approximately 20 or so trees.
We haven't even gotten the descriptions written to get these items posted yet. Have fun looking and hope to see you visiting one of our sites: Winchuck River Store, , Kingfisher Electric Boats, Our eBay Training Site, or our eBay Store with the seller ID: winchuckriverstore.

Just out of port showing the Best Western and the Harbor Hills. You can see scraped off hillside where developers are attempting to make us another Carmel, CA like place. They mutter about making Italian looking villas up there. Many of us dread the end of our innocence and a place without so many people.
Early in the morning before the sun broke through the fog
I think this is Tom Hank's place that he recently bought...still in the fog. It is so hard to figure just where you are when you get out in the ocean, but I bet this is his place. I didn't see him out on the deck waving at me like I expected! LOL
This is the same house on the way back in after the sun broke through
Harbor Hills looking beautiful.
One of our male crabs with the skinny butt
Coming back into port. That bridge is Hwy 101...not very big in our parts.

My son dug up some of the "baby" blueberries from my patch to take home to grow for his family. It has only been a couple of years ago and they are already producing! This is little Wills enjoying grandma's blueberries. I'm eating my cereal right now with a hefty fist full of blueberries on it. Yum!
In General, you can see the over all view of my new paint job with some of my product. I sell what I love, so it makes it easy! I always keep something for myself to use! I found the wool rug at the local thrift store the other day for a fraction of what a new one would cost.
I have used this antique fishing creel for the past 15 years or so. I love it! The feathers have been added in the past few months along with the stag horn fern across the front of it with the brass pine cones. I sell the feathers, stag horn fern and pine cones! I manage to keep some of what I order for my own use. That makes selling what I love fun. Looks like the feathers need to be arranged a bit more! I squirted the arrangement off with the hose this morning messing it up a bit.
This bunch of onion grass is kinda cool in that you can stick something in it. I tried a taper candle and it worked really well. I have some of those for sale. I made the bark box fooling around one day. I am always saying that I will make things to sell, but never get past one of a project and end up keeping it!
I love those giant faux rock and moss balls! I've sold quite a few. I have three of the copper ones left and about 6 baby tear balls. I put a box in the old copper container with a cloth over it and then arranged the items. I also have 6 or so of the arrangement on the right with twigs, ferns, leaves and a bird's nest with eggs.
I put an 24 inch ivy wreath up in the newly painted entry way. I just sold one of those today!
You can see that the antler broke on the upper left. I get to keep it now! I have the broken piece and will glue it and no one will be able to tell. I have many of these for sale in different shapes.
So then I have those brass look alike pheasants for sale that I have on the fireplace along with stag horn fern, and faux brown grass that I really love.
Hope you enjoyed visiting my new room that is so clean that I will have to vacuum as my husband snacks! LOL He just left to go over to the neighbors. They have air conditioning and it is over 100 out there today! Not bad in the house if you don't do much.
