hi Everyone, I am proud to introduce you to an Etsy Shop owner Mollie Burd. This lady is very talented at making furniture and I find that she does such beautful work. I would consider buying furniture from her if I owned my place and wasnt renting. In the meantime, enjoy this feature about her! And don’t forget to stop by Whimsy Burd at Etsy for more of her wonderful products. You just might come across something you like to add to your home.
did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
because my furniture is quaint and fanciful which is the definition for Whimsy.
And of course Burd is from my last name.
- Tell us a little bit about your shop and what
you think makes it unique?
think my shop is unique because I paint furniture that is out of the ordinary.
I try not to go with trends and I am always working on my own methods and
designs. I do like custom orders as well and want to fill my shop full of ideas
for people to get inspiration if they want a custom piece.
- What is your favorite item at the store and why?
and matching chair that goes with it. I did decoupage on the sides of the desk
and have a really nice upholstery on the seat of the chair that complements the
drawer fronts of the desk. This is a higher priced item, but it took a lot of
time and preparation. Plus the furniture is well made and has nice lines.
inspires create your products?
bloggers who also paint furniture. It is fun to collaborate and help each other
learn new techniques. I have found other painters to be open about what they do
and I reciprocate as well. There is no need to be secretive because we all are
unique even if we share ideas with each other. And it just is a fun way to
interact and share what we do.
can we find you?
on my etsy shop www.whimsyburd.etsy.com
and on my facebook fan page www.facebook.com/MolliesDecorativeFurnishings
advice can you give for other sellers out there for their shop?
advice I would give other sellers for their shops is to have really good
pictures and lots of details on their product. I am still working on my photo’s
and really need to get a good camera. I would love to hire a professional to
take my photos, but that is not in the budget right now. I think you can have a
really good product, but if the photo’s are not well done it does not even
matter. People will not look or buy unless the photo’s are well done.
is your Favorite Food?
food. I love avocado’s and guacamole. I really do not have much of a sweet
tooth, except for ice cream.
us one positive event in your life in your life that you felt was a
miracle to you or that you knew the Universe was there watching over you.
Little things have happened in our time together that is explainable. For
instance, he will be thinking something and I well say it. Or just how we have
a sense when the other one is having a bad day even when we do not tell each
other. Once I told him I always had a favorite house in our town of 28,0000. He
told me he did too and drove me to it. It was the same house that was my
favorite!!! So yeah, that is why I know that someone is looking over me. Not
sure who or what it is, but there is a lot more to life than we as humans can
is your favorite vacation spot and
favorite vacation spot at this point is home lol. I do like to travel, but too
be honest I love being home the best. I have been to Italy
which was awesome and seeing the Grand Canyon
was pretty spectacular to say the least. I do want to go to Ireland yet,
since I am extremely Irish and that culture appeals to me. Love cottages and
green pastures. Green tea is my favorite! I drink five cups of it everyday. It
centers me and makes me feel healthy.
else you like to share with us today?
have two beautiful daughters and am a grandma now to a 11 month old Lydia Rose.
My daughter’s names are Olivia and Grace. I also finished my degree to teach. I
am having mixed feelings though about being a teacher, but think that it will
happen if it is meant to be. I just need to find the right school that is a
good fit for me.
