Bird feather heart

I just had to share these beautiful, feathery things…

Just how did I miss this little bird-bodied gal? I have long admired the work of Swanbones and I was thrilled to find that she has an Etsy store! Unfortunately, this pretty ornament is sold out but I am hoping to see more for sale.

There are more styles too (like little tea cups with faces) all hand sculpted by the artist, and I love how they look all dangling from winter’s finest greenery…

I love the paper in this print, not to mention the bird-headed lady. Quite opposite of the above.

And just how magical would these be dangling from your ears? And so fitting for the season too! They are Sparrows and Snowbells by Luxe Deluxe

Well, I must admit I went a little crazy on Etsy the other day purchasing multiple vintage dresses! They are made of wool and floral prints with pretty patch pockets, buttons and tree branches. I already have so many ideas for them and I received one in the mail today and it is divine! I want to wear them with little vintage slips sticking out and many, many layers of wooley sweaters and tights. In addition, I dug up the most delicate faded peachy tulle party dress that I bought over the summer. It was crumbled up in an old trunk at a tag sale! I am in desperate need of daylight so I can take some pictures of my finds. By the time I arrive home from work it pitch black outside. I love the wintery days but I do not like the lack of sunlight!

the magical stuffed book

A little peek at the faded storybook I have been cutting up all these years. I stuff the book with snippets of pretty handmade papers from India to keep my place. Some pages of this book were even sttiched into the dress of a lady in a quilty wallhanging I created two summers ago. Sewn on cotton canvas with vintage papers, victorian lace, silky threads and paint. Oh, that was quite fun!

And I found the most amusing little mouse bookmark in an old jewelty box at an antique shop. He sits on my book too.

Its so windy here tonight! Sunday morning I woke up to snowfalkes and ice. It is the perfect weather to curl up with a book.

Something original for sale

Now up in my shop

I love this one. Its on a chunky canvas, so the birch trees and the ground wrap around.

Oh, what a beautiful day! And I have some other pretty things to share too. Very soon, very soon!
