Watchful Eyes now in Shop


I just got the first three sets of Watchful Eyes posted on the ETSY shop. I made them in sets of 10...each one is still unique...Some have longer lashes, some are a bit more bulbous and some have smaller pupils. You choose the color, but you get what you get!


I plan to add the monsters later this week!

Watchful Eyes, Coming Soon





I've been working on these Watchful Eyes (and some monsters, don't worry) since new years...

Hang one wherever you may need an extra eye looking out for you...above your bed, on your door knob, on the wall or from the ceiling! They will go up on Etsy soon. For Lots more pictures visit my FLICKr page!

Also to note, I finally invested in some fabric tags for the monsters....Still working on the placement of them...but I think they turned out pretty cute!

In the kitchen


A few prised Christmas gifts that live in my favorite room of the house!
A Kean Kanteen Stainless Steel water bottle, in the most amazing pumpkin orange. This replaced my old one that I sadly lost somewhere along the way. I highly recommend these bottles...no plastic, take it with you everywhere...never have to buy bottled water or waste a cup again!
A set of thrifted glass jars (i do love things you can put other things in!!) with lids hand painted by the lovely Rachel, and a big Cast Iron cooking pot in mustard yellow!
I am in love with the warm tones this month...and spending as much time as I can in the kitchen!
(taking breaks to sew of course!)
