{room to grow}









em's room got a little makeover just cos.

well it did really need some organizing and adjustng as we move from babyhood to toddlerland.
it was a bit sad actually putting away all her small shoes, hats outgrown, teensy socks.
but it was also good making room for her new holiday things - most important was her lovely doll house made especially for her by finnsandflowers.

...more on that later this week!

goosey paints the morning.





my little goose has stunned me with her painting and drawing skills as of late.
this morning i set her up with watercolors and came back a few minutes later to these lovely paintings.
i know i am gushing, but i just cannot get enough of them.
i love her so.

{for a friend} part two:tom..workin' it.






a month or so ago i was asked to create a few mosey cozies for some old friends...i shared part one with you a few weeks ago and am finally getting round to part two:tom
i was baffled to try to make something kinda cool enough for this dear old pal...he's a tattooed tuffy and although i had an easy enough time coming up with something for dee (her tastes and mine remain very similar) i was worried about how the mosies would translate into boy. or grown man, really.
i actually worked the wool quite a bit on the machine (something i really never do) and liked how it turned out. it sort of had a needle felted vibe wherein the one wool pice became part of the other...
here is the result...and tom if your readin' hope you liked the fished product as much as me!
this mama got in touch with some of her tattooed ole' days too!
grin.
