autumn sale at my Etsy shoppe!

check out my Etsy shoppe, all summer fabric earrings are 30% off! this is my first official "sale", i am trying to get my shoppe ready for the holidays. have some new ideas brewing, and did some work in my studio this weekend. more on that later...

some of my favorite shoppes of late:

ArtLab - based in New York, way hip clothing with lots of frills and ruffles

White Owl - based in Detroit, lacey necklaces made with vintage lace, so inspirational. my favorite is the peacock sequin necklace.

Adelaide's Homesewn - based in Kansas City, vintage-inspired clothing.

Odds & Ends Couture - based in Raleigh, NC, hand-felted accessories. simply amazing.

lace and felt

inspiration for the weekend.

vintage lace (image found on Google). i have piles of vintage lace in my collection now, including lace ribbon.

recycled felt (photo by Feltorama). this stack of gorgeous colors is made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, with the look and feel of felt. and is currently sitting in my studio, just waiting to be made into ornaments and jewelry. Felt-o-rama is a new find for me, and i am ecstatic to have found a supplier who sells recycled felt! more on that later.

combining the two. the possibilities are endless.
