While i’m not finding much time in the studio these days, i am finding a whole lot of stock lingering about that needs photographing. i did manage to accomplish a few wee photo shoots during this past week of gorgeous ‘end of Summer sunshine’. it seems i have some very appropriate items for Autumn to stock the shop.
Autumn scarves in various luxurious fabrics; raw silk, linens, cottons and wool. Modeled by my stunning friend A;
Felted nesting bowls for stacking, nesting or filling, for children or adults, for the nature table or the dresser top;
sweet wool felt pine cones to hang or use in nature displays in your home;
while i do have some children’s pants i do not have willing models and so all i can offer for the time being are the new patchwork knee patches – to lively up some well worn pants;
Crowns for Autumn birthday celebrations;
so if you haven’t already then head on over to the shop!
this past week we welcomed the littlest A to our daily rhythm and flow. i admit the idea of taking care of another very young one was daunting and if she wasn’t such a happy gal and if she wasn’t my niece i don’t think i ever could/would do it but she’s awesome and we love her and we want to be more connected with her in our day to day and so it is that my heart and hands are fuller from here on in, well for 3 days of the week anyways;
I first came to know it as St John’s wort and associated it with herbs to treat depression. i know it now as an invasive plant and i’m planning to make use of my foraged noxious weed in a “feel better balm” along with comfrey leaves, calendula flowers and plantain in beeswax and olive oil. my hands tend to be dry this time of year so i’m sure a little of this will be soothing and i intend to tuck a little jar of it in my aspiring home apothecary for the treatment of superficial burns, inflammations, insect bites and other minor injuries;
