over our trip, we found a small antique mall.. came away with this highly masculine, modern bull by dansk.. I think he is a mighty paperweight

( I am looking forward to )

xmas gift, of sorts. a very practical purchase, too. I think I may be a seattle-ite, after three years here & with this concession to the requirements of footwear during the winter, in this place

( at home )

I really love being at home


the full moon


the sort of ridiculously multi-talented arist ashley helvey (also here, and here).. she felts, styles, photographs, makes jewelry.. probably other awesome things as well, but she's sweet & modest and wouldn't make a big fuss of any of it

birthday goal, one & only- one of ashley's felted pieces!

(well and maybe that lamp)

( I am staying )

an update, for future plans..

now planning to stay on etsy once I open the independent web shop that I've mentioned.. I'll be keeping vintage/little bit of jewelry in my etsy shop as usual, and in the new location, the standard vintage & a few pieces of stone jewelry along with handmade lines from some extremely talented ladies-- beautiful oversize leather totes & leather oxfords, to start!

planning on an early february opening!

( I am leaving )

hello! I'm leaving for a family visit on the other side of the country VERY early tomorrow morning..

all orders placed by 12/20 5pm EST will ship today, all orders placed after will ship 12/27 !

( consumerist tale )

quick & riveting story here--

purchased a well-priced steamer from a few weeks ago.. delivered to my door, & then picked up by postal mail carrier who mistook it for an outgoing package

( never mind the FedEx label & whatnot )

this happened a week ago-- the mail carrier realized her mistake a day after, and then proceeded to do just about nothing in order to return it.. I called FedEx, they said to call the Post Office; I called the Post Office who essentially said, 'too bad'

boooo Post Office!

I called FedEx back to file a claim, they referred me back to Woot to do so.. I contacted Woot with the details, and they give me an immediate full refund


( store in 'shrooms )

wooden mushroom boxes, in medium & large

( found old faithful shop via marmunia )
