No energy for photos
June 15th, 2009
A big thank you to everyone who helped in deciding what my next project will be. If you’ll excuse the pun, Your Victory Jumper was the victor, narrowly defeating the zig zag lace top and Bottoms Up. I started on the ribbing last night, and seeing the magenta poke through between the grey stitches makes me want to take back what I said about the garishness of the needles. Magenta needles, I hope you’ll forgive me.
There are a heap of things I wanted to post today. However, I’ve been feeling quite tired and yuck, so didn’t get round to taking any photos. To distract you all from not having a proper post with visual aids, here’s a short list of things that have caught my eye recently:
Roddy and Ginger screen print. Can’t really go wrong with a print that contains olive green and owls.
Silver button ring by Corky Saint Clair and Red Cloud Designs. I don’t know if this was a one off or not, but by Jove I hope I can get one.
Old Swingline staplers. Vintage stationery supplies has always had an appeal, but I think watching Mad Men has whet my appetite for it a bit more.
Moon globes. I’d like to get my hands on one of these on day, but this one’s a wee bit outside my price range. Maybe one day the op shop gods will smile upon me.
Twinings tea tin planters made by Allison from The Lark. Really clever idea, and they look awesome.
