*Homemade Linzer cookies*
Everything was delightful and sweet!
Today I have been cleaning and in a weird way..I can't wait for Spring cleaning! It has been oddly warm and getting me into the mood for cleaning and painting. Well I best for now just straighten up and get to work on my shop! I hope to bring some new items to the shop soon, so stay tuned!
Cheers and have a cozy day!

This is one of my favorite ornaments (that doesn't go with our theme). It is one of the only ornaments from my childhood. A delicate blown glass ballerina with sparkly Tu-tu! I have to say Christmas is one of my favorite holidays!
This year Christmas dinner with the family will be at our house! So I have been running around trying to get everything just right. Here is the menu I picked:
Apricot/mustard glazed ham
Au gratin potatoes
Chocolate ganache cake
(if you would like any of these recipes just let me know!)
I hope everyone has a magical Christmas and holiday season! I have many new ideas floating around in my head that I can't wait to share!

But I do have to say when Sunday rolled around I found my self having a little bit of a panic attack! Just thinking of all the work I have to do in order to get ready (in less than a month) for such a big show! A little over whelming! I guess I just have to take it one step at a time. Crossing my fingers for all of us crafty ladies to make a killing that day!
So if any of you would like to come meet me and shop for some of the best crafty shops around...come swing by The Bust Craftacular on Dec14 th at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC!
Smooches and Hot cocoa for all of your support!

Ok I am giddy about my new business cards! This is not a very good picture, but you get the idea!
I also have been working on some new items soon that may make an appearance in the shop! These have been so much fun!
Well it is warm here today but rather gloomy. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then heavens to Betsy it will be Christmas! Well back to work I go!
Happy Friday my sweets!

Oh and here is the family pumpkin! We tend to stick to the old school style of carving. I love a simple jackolantern on Halloween! After carvimg him we roasted his seeds for a yummy treat! Here is the quick recipe--->
Spray baking sheet with oil
place washed pumpkin seeds out on baking sheet
sprinkle with your favorite spices (I like old bay or red pepper)
place in the oven on 350 degrees for 20 mins
stir occasionally (so they don't stick, and get coated more with yummy goodness)
And there you have it! Yummy treat in minutes!
Have a warm and cozy day!

Starting clockwise from the top. The table cloth is from the 50's and is adorable! It has hand sewn little embroideries of cherries! I love it, even though I have no idea where I am going to put it? Next is this also handmade little pair of knickers! I think it is suppose to be a pot holder, but I am not sure. I personally think they will look lovely hanging in my studio :) And last this cute little book called "Whitie: the bunny who's wish came true" I love the illustrations and colors! And as you can see apparently I was on a red/white kick! HA!
Well I am off to do some much needed sewing. I have fallen behind due to all this health craziness! Stay cozy my loves and I will sneak back soon!

As far as shop news goes....I have added some new items over at Ity-bity Bags yesterday. The real news is I have re-opened "The Hollow Stump"! I am so excited (but crazy) that I can finally re-open. The Hollow Stump will carry a mix of Plush, Zines, Badges and more!

(Above) Now something more on the line of what I could actually wear without falling :) These flats by Sugar are called "birds nest" I love the colors and think they would look great with Jeans or a casual skirt! These puppies are very affordable and you can buy them at Dick's sporting goods!
Last but not least another pair of 1930's inspired shoes that are flooding the market this Fall! The rich brown leather and little laces are yummy! I can imagine these with an awesome pair of knee highs! These are made by Clarks and can be purchased through their website or Piperlime!
And to find some of those awesome knee highs...head on over to Sock Dreams! There selection is mind blowing!
I am off to sew and tidy the house! A girls work is never done :)
Have a lovely Friday!

(below)Rugs. This is obviously not on the top of the list, but I still would get one. Most dorms have tile floors and are very cold in the Winter. This Rug I found on Urban outfitters for only $28.00! I like the range of colors that would match anything!
Other essentials that every college student should have:
Waste paper basket
Bath caddy basket
water proof flip-flops (for wearing in the shower)
Everything else is unnecessary. I hope this post (rant) was helpful.

Alright this is kind of a funny purchase :) My son who is going to be 3yrs loves worms! He digs huge holes in our backyard and pulls out "wormies" and carries them around the yard! So when I saw handsewns super worm, I knew this was perfect for him (he loves superheros too)! I immediately emailed the lovely and sweet handsewn herself and asked for a custom order of three super wormies! To my surprise they were ready and waiting for my shopping cart the very next day! These little wormies make great gifts, prizes or even decor for any child!

Have a cozy week !
