I sooooo want to be knitting right now. There’s a few reasons that’s not happening. The first is it’s 80 degrees here in Florida. Happy Christmas! The second reason is I have a kitten that has never seen yarn and two other animals that have (and LOVE to eat it). Third, I’m still prepping things…

Trepuntozero civette sul comò

  Trepuntozero civette sul comò, that means “Threedotzero little owls on the dresser” This shop has been on my radar for a couple months. ADORABLE. I love the Jackalope to pieces! Pretty much anything tiny and felt and freakishly adorkable is going to get my vote. But, hey… I’m socially and politically conscientious that way.…

Grace Gladdish’s Etsy shop, Tree4thewood,…

art feelings by ArtMind

  Mitsy Sleur’s Art feelings are very smart and sensitive. I probably like them so much because I am such a “moody” person, but still. You can even order a custom Art Feeling; mine would be a frankensteinesque art feeling called “mixed”. But you already knew that. Watch Mitsy’s Handmade Portrait below and then go…

washi forever

This is probably the first time I’ve felt like a 3 day weekend wasn’t long enough. Really. I’m working hard to get my head back into the day job. It’s our “slow time”. Nearly Summer. I’ve got a ton of maintenance to do. You know, all the things your can’t even THINK about getting to…

Yesterday, I was ALL OVER Etsy, catching up on blogs, “window” shopping on pinterest – in between lapses of consciousness, that is. My little beagle / nurse, Mac, was surprisingly sympathetic to my aches and pains as he lay next to me…mimicking my long sighs and intermittent groans. We spent most of the day under…
