A big pile of color! I could almost “jump” into it!
Mireio is embracing Autumn! Summer’s pastels are giving way to deep, earthy tones. I’m exited to be listing new hand dyed vintage slips inspired by the colors and fragrances of Autumn: luscious blackberries, earthy tea, crisp apples, and falling leaves. Stay tuned: they’ll be in store on Monday! (if not sooner.)
Until then, have you thought about your holiday shopping yet? Autumn is a great time to pick up a Travel Pretty Buckwheat Hull Pillow. One for you for all your holiday travels. And one for a friend! With or without lavender!
Pretty new buckwheat hull pillows in fabulous Liberty of London fabric.
Handsome has settled into studio life rather well. He sings and plays and, in what I suspect is evidence of his genius, has figured out how to remove the top to his water bowl so he can play in it. Oh, and he loves the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. Brilliant bird.
Yes, we’re calling the budgie Handsome. I know, but honestly, nothing else seemed to fit. And there’s something about seeing your adorable husband lean over the cage and sweet talk to a budgie, “Hey Handsome, hello friend,” that kinda seals the deal.
I’ve been sewing up a storm (there’s more coming!) and trying to balance all the yard work calling me. Good weather does this to me. That, and $10 peonies at Costco! I haven’t bought any yet, but they have me standing in my yard and saying, “There? Maybe there?” I almost have IZ talked into creating new beds along the front fence line under the pretense that it would mean less yard for him to mow. Heh. I’m wily. I’m telling you, peonies are yard crack!
But I have managed to come inside and to the sound of bird song (Handsome loves to sing in his food bowl!) work on the new Liberty of London fabrics. Sew, Wende, Sew!
Lavender sachets in the prettiest Liberty of London fabric.
I’m swooning over here. Liberty of London fabric is so beautiful. Photographs never do it justice. And I’m seriously wishing I’d ordered enough yardage to make something for ME. There are new pillows in store (I’m slowly adding them) and lavender sachets. I’m working on eye pillows with flax seed and more lavender sachets this week. I’m hoping by the end of the week to be finished with the Liberty shop update! So, stay tuned.
Just a note on this update: most of these items are limited or one of a kind. I am not adding huge lines of Liberty, instead focusing on more unique listings.
Ok, back to the machine and the song bird and maybe a run to the pet store for more toys. I mean, the pet store is just across the street from those $10 peonies. And Handsome could use a new
This is Murphy. . . The awwww quotient on this blog just skyrocketed.
Isn’t he adorable? A customer sent me a tweet last night that said, “Someone looks comfortable on my Wende pillow.” I thought Murphy would be a nice way to wrap up the week and wish you a Happy Friday! Have an “Awe” filled weekend, friends. See you on Monday. (when, rumor has it, I take a step closer to redeeming the much maligned beet.)
