cat toy

Monday, December 24th, 2012

hey, did you know it’s christmas tomorrow? need a last minute gift for your cat? here is the easiest cat toy ever…well, maybe not as easy as a crumpled up piece of paper, but i don’t know if that would really be classified as a toy. “somebody” kept pilfering pom poms and pipe cleaners from my craft […]

i love bandanas. i wear them all the time, especially when it’s sunny (which is most of the time) so my part doesn’t get sunburnt when my hair is in braids (which is most of the time). i have them in lots of colors and patterns to match every occasion, from cuddling bunnies to pulling parts […]

a couple of things

Monday, August 20th, 2012

hi there! i haven’t done much thrifting this summer, but i did stop by a shop near the dentist as my reward after getting a couple of fillings replaced. i found this amazing hand woven wall hanging while the novocaine wore off… i love it! it’s pretty big, 32″x42″. there was another piece by the same person but […]

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

never go out of fashion i found this at a junk shop on a cross country road trip almost 20 years ago, it’s been hanging in my various workrooms since then. the artwork really amuses me. it was a nino cerruti ad in a 1979 issue of W. here’s to making truly beautiful clothes in […]

jumbo sized flower loom flowers

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

perusing the aisles of the 99cent store the other day, i saw these packages of brightly colored polyethelene rope. my first thought was that it looked and felt like jumbo sized plastic raffia. my second thought was how awesome would it be to make jumbo sized flower loom flowers with this stuff? totally awesome!! i wondered […]

hungarian honeycake overload

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

i had to do it, i couldn’t stop myself… honeycake chair! i probably could have stopped myself from making the gingerbread one, but i did it anyways… making the chairs reminded me of this little box i found, and i saw some coordinating items on etsy that i find pretty irresistable, like these shot glasses… […]

knotholes and critters

Monday, November 21st, 2011

ever since i saw these adorable embroideries on etsy (and bought them right away, of course!) i’ve wanted to make a knothole skirt. then i found a few more at thrift stores, and the little mouse one on etsy again. i’ve only seen these 4 designs. have you seen any others? when i first moved into […]
