encouraged by a clever & sweet friend, I thought I'd start posting photos evidencing my love of wrapping gifts, as I've done in the past..
these are holiday gifts, some sweet handmade tumblers, wrapped (or I guess, mummified) in scrap cheesecloth
I received a hot tip to check out woot for its renowned deal-of-the-day.. since today, it is a nice rowenta steamer!
there's some silly tax, but the shipping is but $5!
( I do mean 'woot woot' like that noise people make when they raise the roof.. )

being reasonable is fun, if occasionally difficult.. always attempting to keep my excesses to a minimum..

I'm really excited about felted things.. an area where I veer precipitously close to 'museum clothing', I think (think neon titanium eyewear & 'funky' but sensible shoes)
something I've noticed when I'm searching through felted items is that even when I don't like something, I still sort of do.. its just a very cool process & result, regardless of the specifics (though, really, there is some scandalous stuff out there)
still, much of it is so beautiful & interesting! I would love to learn how to do this..

● arm warmers
● oxford slippers (set of 2)

I like horses
we used to ridicule a poor girl in junior high for harboring shy/recluse/horse-loving tendencies.. never directly to her, but still.. the sad & regrettable casual cruelty of youth
vintage horsehair earrings
horsehair pendant necklace
few new today, few more tomorrow.. hope you are enjoying a nice weekend

on the chance you were curious, I wanted to update my shop's future status.. I'm now planning with certainty a move to an independent web shop sometime early in the new year!
I'm working out details now, so will leave a bit of surprise to it all for later, but I'm planning to carry- in addition the my regular vintage basics & a small selection of jewelry- some complementary leather lines! think simple oxfords & big roomy totes, along with my standard trousers, blazers, striped tees, silk tanks, etc
