Since I don't have the energy this evening to work on my etsy shop, I'm skipping a shop update in favor of an everything else update.
Mornings here have been dark and long, evenings darker and longer. I've been lining up little projects to work on to keep my hands busy during these chilly hours. The first one is now complete: a little pillow made with fabric scraps passed on to me by my boss. It's perfect for chair that Barry or I often occupy in the morning while reading, knitting, or just gazing out the bedroom window.
Speaking of my boss, she took me to a Dr. Marten's warehouse sale last weekend at which I purchased the most perfectly dorky pair of shoes. Me and my ridiculously small feet were able to shop the kids' styles (the ones with the $15 price tags), so I brought home another not-so-dorky pair, too.
Since I'm on the topic of people I work with, it's about time I mention Robin. She's my sweet, stylish coworker who happens to be quite talented with a needle and thread. I stopped by her studio recently and picked up this adorable skirt she'd made from vintage fabric. You can find others like it at her etsy shop.
And speaking of etsy shops, have you checked out Cori's newest one? Several months ago, I had the pleasure of selecting a few pieces from a couple of Cori's sales here in town. I love that little "s" jar and those espresso cups. I haven't brought anything new for the apartment into this place in quite a long time, but I couldn't resist picking up Cori's amazing wares.
Alright, the wind is howling outside and I've gone on for too long. Back to my projects. Stay warm. And let me know what you're doing to pass the cold, dark hours.
