Razzleberry Camo

Hey–check out the new Bag-Bag that I’ve only been working on for TWO  WHOLE YEARS!!

Finally-finally it’s finished and ready for the Shop.

The Razzleberry Camo is thicker and more sturdy than is looks because of the type of shopping bags that went into making it. It’s quite likely, that this one will be a one-of-a-kind, simply because it was dang hard to make–and took forever. It’s made up of plenty of hot pink bags, some baby pink bags, maroon bags with some glitzy silver bags–scattered throughout.

Trust me when I say–the rosy diva look will be big this spring!

Gathering Color

The incredible colors of Autumn are all around us now…at last…at last.

I’ve been working on a few new colors of my own these days. Fascinating to think that all those little specks have a story of their own.

Taking bags to make…more bags does seem like a funny thing to do–if you think hard about it.

So I don’t.

It just feels good to take something that filled a purpose…

and give it another one. Only this time, it’s purpose will be much less fleeting–and be useful for years to come. And if it turns out beautiful and fun as well–that’s a big plus.

New, fun colors coming up in the shop–very soon!

Pumpkin Boy Hat

Stepping up production of the pumpkin hats in the shop. They seem to be a hot item this year–wahoo!

This one’s a bit more of …ummmm…a boyish pumpkin. Note the bolder stitching…

and the blatantly missing scallops. No lacy lady here folks–never mind the background. This is a manly pumpkin hat–I tell you, though still made with the same soft Peaches and Cream Cotton that I love–in Burnt Orange.

But in the next few days I’ll be posting some more additions to the shop for the men-folk called the “Big Hunk” and “Little Hunk” lines. And soon…oh, I promise—so soon, we will have the “Lovely Ladies” additions to our hat collections–for us grown gals.

All because you asked. So please, my friends…stick around.

I love having you in my world.

So now, it’s my turn to ask–

If you could find the perfect ladies flapper hat…in some {a-hem} random shop somewhere…what color would it be?

For the Baby Birds

On our little windy journey–Grammie found that a few new hats were in order. Luckily the crochet hook and cotton works very nicely on the drive with no car sickness…it’s a miracle, I tell you.

Wheat colored, ribbed with a stripe for Beckham.

Lacey pink picot point for Lily—don’t you love the pony tail holes?

And the same in cream for the little lady.

Ahh…busy fingers.

What a lovely way to feather the nest.

Look for a few new “road trip inspired” sweet things in the shop–coming soon!
