Etsy Documentary Day 1 - Tara Young Arrives

Oh my, the past few days have been so fun, exciting, nerve-wracking and flat out exhausting.  Who knew that having someone come into your home to interview you, film and photograph could be so draining?   I surely didn't, and yet I think I'm still floating around cloud 9 somewhere.   Last time I posted, I was waiting for Tara Young to arrive at my house.  Tara is the Senior Video Producer at Etsy and has also edited and directed other arts-related programming for The Criterion Collection,  Vice's VBS, and the Sundance Channel, where she worked with Beth Levison . When Tara arrived at the house we gave her a tour through each room and the garage where I store almost all of my transferware that's for sale.   We chatted a little about possible shots and places she'd like to film inside as well as some of what she'd like to cover and for me to talk about.   Shawn and I took Tara around Tulsa and showed her a few of the local hangouts and landmarks

Waiting on Tara Young & Blue Turkey Transferware

It is Monday morning and I am anxiously waiting on Tara Young, Etsy's in house producer to arrive at my house.  I've pulled out some transfer ware she requested to see and/or feature in the documentary and thought I'd show you these blue turkey plates I just recently acquired.   I've got a full set of 12 plus the ginormous matching  platter.  I think this is the first time I've had so many turkey plates in one pattern.   You don't often see blue at Thanksgiving.  I'm looking forward to creating a tablescape with these, using orange and browns as accents.  Orange and blue are complementary colors. The plates are in my shop now, but won't be available for shipping until after the 18th when Etsy's done filming. I hope to post something tonight and let you all know what's happening.   Wish me luck!
