oh my sweet heart...


I have loved making these needle felted wool hearts this year.  It seems I am always drawn to the soft pinks and cream wools with the vintage blossoms.  This little box is one of my favorites.


A few of these hearts were custom requests, the rest went in the shop today.  This little blue heart with the vintage glass garland beads turned out so sweet. 





this collection of pinks was so fun to make and send out.  One of the pink ones went to a customers mother that loved making things by hand and is now living in a care center.


Sometimes there is a little heart that is so sweet I decide to keep I for a while.  These cream hearts just looked so beautiful in my little milk glass bowl.





It was such a lovely Valentines day at our house.  Sweet little notes for the girls, some dark chocolates and a lovely pink bouquet with wild thistle stems.


 Always there is a bit of red, so heavenly!


 and then this new palette, cream and taupe.  The large vintage cherry blossom from Japan is so very unusual!


February you have been so very lovely.

tiny fairy mushroom ornaments...


such a lovely holiday weekend for making mushroom ornaments! this is a new design I have been working on with needle felted wool wired stems and silk velvet mushroom caps. The hand dyed velvet has such a beautiful color variation that shows off so well on the mushroom caps.


I love these new shapes and how the stems can bend.  The gills are made with one of my hand dyed crepe paper ruffles.  here is a close up to see the paper folding and stitching~


there are even a couple with glitter spots.  happy holiday week !
