( idea )

' Is it possible to be non-materialistic but still love to make and acquire beautiful things? And if so, can a shop which by definition sells goods, be non-materialistic? '


right there with you, julia

in ( progress )


my prospective coat (as mentioned), in progress

(like a little animal..)

( plans )


we're making plans! we'll be heading to stockholm first, followed by oslo & then finally reykjavik. I've found a few museums I'd like to get to, and we'll definitely be visiting natural hot springs & saunas anywhere we go.. like the crazy blue lagoon in iceland!

meanwhile I'm trying to get my 'gear' in order.. warm socks, warm coat, water-resistant everything, good boots..

any suggestions of where to go/what to do would be appreciated!

( saturday )




just a couple of photos from the indoor flea market this past weekend..

I won't lie- it wasn't the most commercially successful event. But I saw a few friends, and made a new one or two, so I think it was definitely a worthwhile & good day

I hope you had a good weekend

natural / felt & photo




I love the photography- not to mention the raw, extra natural felting- of these new pieces in monika's shop

we're working together now to come up with a design for a coat (for me to have; sadly I couldn't sell such an item) really excited about this.

( clutch )


making way for some exciting new fall leather items! each of the two remaining rennes clutches are now $100, down from $120

(I've found from my own experience that these are truly useful!)

taupe suede clutch $100
soft brown leather clutch $100

good ( sock )


I recently found a shop that will knit a pair of socks with your yarn (send it in) for $15/pair

I chose caramel alpaca, dark green merino, and pale blue-gray wool/bamboo for mine. I'm so excited to receive these! its difficult to find good socks

back at ( flea )


back at the century ballroom indoor flea market this saturday..


where: 10th & Pine, Captiol Hill (Seattle) Oddfellows Building
when: Saturday, 9 / 17, 11am - 3pm
what: lots of cozy items for fall


would love to see you there!

( morning )


I'm thinking more about food & cooking recently. Seattle mornings are turning dark & gray soon enough, and caffeine does not motivate us.. so I'm trying to make breakfasts nice

today we had peaches & cream, bread with apricot jam and (decaf) coffee

( give / get )


I love a good share. tonight I had the opportunity to pass along some jam to our neighbors- received some delicious cucumbers in return. after that, I was given some great lettuce & a couple of tomatoes- more jam in exchange
