I love the Northwest, really. I'm one of those people who doesn't mind the drizzle, someone who thinks that our endless gray days are a fair tradeoff for our other beautiful seasons, etc. But, MAN, my mood is approximately one thousand times better the past couple days than it has been for weeks, & I'm pretty sure it's just because I've seen a little bit of sun for two days in a row (never mind that as I was leaving dinner with friends last night, we were debating whether it was rain or snow we were seeing. Rain, I say, rain!).
Since I'm feeling like an actual person who makes actual stuff again, I thought maybe I'd poke around & see what's hanging around the studio that would be better off hanging around other people's houses, to wit:
The last two pillows from my "fall collection,"
& a whole bunch of rings. The pillows are already up on etsy, the rings will be following a few at a time once I sort out some good photo light for them.
Of course, I have to offset the moving out of things with the moving in of other things, though I am trying hard to make sure they are smallish, & nice to look at.
I am obligated to love this because my son made it (in "art club," no less), but I would love it anyway. See that flying saucer up in the corner, there? This is tissue + other paper decoupaged onto a scrap piece of wood, & guess whether this idea is going in my boring-days-of-summer toolkit?
I am not obligated to love this, but I do, so much. It's from theantibride at etsy: the chair is screened onto muslin, surrounded by lovely meticulous hand-stitching.
It will fit right in.
