So, is my big, bespectacled face what you were hoping to see first thing in the morning as you sipped your tea and checked your feed reader? Heh. I suspect not. I’m just doing what any girl would do at 11:30 at night when the rest of the house is asleep – putting on lipstick […]Read More: Step away from the camera

I got a pair of scissors and a bushel basket and hiked out to the field to cut my own. I was kicking […]Read More: Must be September
But in a good way… I’ve just added six new items based on Alexander Henry’s Birdseed fabric to my shop. Two pendants… …three big buttons… …and a ring. There’s more (earrings and bobby pins in particular), but I don’t want to spend my whole day in front of the computer – the sun is shining, […]Read More: Etsy is for the Birds
