it's pretty late

it is so late i am feeling a little fuzzy. but it has been so long since i have put together a collection...and besides, i really felt inspired this morning by ohmyampersand's new wood pendant. gorgeous! and by chance it seemed to fit with some recent favorites. definitely check out these shops if you haven't already. from top to bottom: "harold and mod upcycled dress" by featherweight, "pine system series" by bcode, "le grand mealunes" by creeley, "fitzgerald leather tote bag cross body strap in saddle brown" by renneslechateau, "adventure" by mydaddyspaper, and "wood pendant - red flower" by ohmyampersand.

tiny paintings on wood

my latest endeavor has been turning tiny paintings on wood into magnets. functional, original art for nooks, crannies, and magnetic surfaces. :) it really is a lot of fun, but eyes! i have perfect vision at the moment, but who knows how long it will last?

we have a winner!

congratulations to shauna! a big thank you to naomi of thetimeisnow for donating the gift certificate to her beautiful shop, and to all who left comments. hope you are having a sunny monday!
