Tiny top hats, corsages and boutonnières.
And a little blind lamb.
I’ve been working on some new things for spring and they are available now in my shop.
*update – sold out but more coming soon.
There is also a new one of a kind set – claude and gus. I’ll have something similar available to order soon.
I’ve just added a few new cake toppers to my shop – more coming soon.
*sorry- sold out but lots more coming soon*
I’m working on lots of things, including several new cake toppers and they will be available beginning next week. There will also be some little birds, a camp wapameo postcard set and at least one woebegone.
* If you’ve been trying to order for spring and summer 2009 thanks for your patience and there is news coming soon.*
Beautiful bits of Japanese indigo and bright floral dust rags. I love them. You can find more about Stephen and these amazing things at his website. I think I’m going to make a bat out one of the dust cloths.
These little birds are on their way to London today for a garden wedding.
I like this photo – I think they look very earnest or maybe sincere. Note on wedding birds/ cake toppers: I’m still making them but not taking orders right now so I can focus on current orders, tackling my massive backlog of email and doing a little restructuring to make everything more manageable for all concerned. If I were to continue without making some adjustments and changes I would certainly lose the rest of my marbles. If you would like updates please join the mailing list or check back here.
This lace and fabric is for some brides and grooms I’m beginning today.
My favorite parts of the bird making process are picking out the fabric and taking the photo when they’re finished. I like the middle parts too – just not as much.
There will be new little birds available Friday, April 11th, at 3PM (EST) at my etsy shop ( you need to have and account at etsy to purchase – it’s quick and easy – just a user name and password).
I have also added a couple new cake toppers to my shop.
Above are eve and thurston and below are darla and monty ( the bird at the top is little frannie).
Say good morning.
I’ve just added a new couple to the shop – violet and duffy.
I just got a great box of old fabric, it’s very old- 1900-1910 but most of it is unused. The pieces are cut in pattern shapes so I’m guessing it originally came from a tailor’s or dressmaker’s estate. My estate has a lot of birds in it. Anyway, it found it’s way to me and I love the little prints, especially the black and whites. The one on the lower right makes me think of Lena Corwin’s blog ( as always,you can click the image for a better view).
And something else: little bird couples all dressed up and waiting to have their official portrait taken.
All the latest news and blogposts and extra stuff, just for subscribers, delivered mostly on Friday. Pretty much.
