we are putting on our nosies and ears, being filled with love and sweetness... the holiday update is tomorrooooow! time: 6pm central (4pm pacific/ 5pm mtn/ 7pm eastern) international friends click here for time conversion. it will be an intimate update of only a half dozen OOAK bears.
happy holidays! *they are all SOLD, thank you lovely people!
i adore tie dying because the results are always a surprise. this christmas tie dyed mohair turned out simply amazing.. just as i hoped: strawberry patches mingled in a spring to evergreen forest, with a bit of snow and a few touches of plum. i find it to be a four-seasons color combo, so the 2 sweet bears i am making with it will look fab all year round in any setting.
update announcement to happen very soon! have a relaxing saturday :)
i'm working on new *smaller* sized stick bears for my holiday update happening in the next few days! green "holly" was a special order cousin from my pre-holiday bears update, just to show for comparison how small the newer ones are- the white bear is only 3 1/2 inches! giggles!
there will be more sneak peeks posted here as things progress :)
december greetings! today is the 10th, which is PFATT marketplace update. this magical month i am offering a delightful old pair of real vintage sock monkeys, Frida and Franklin! they are from my personal collection and have lived with me many years... so i can give them a good reference, lol! IMHO sock monkeys add a touch of cozy + whimsy anywhere you put them. some nice examples below (let's play "spot the monkey"!)
i like the metal baskets idea
from Real Simple mag.. monkeys as wall art. a good way to free up shelf space!
Mr. Peppermints, one of my creations, gracing the ribbon wall in Jennifer Murphy's colorful studio. so flattered! :)
have fun decorating your home with beloved sock monkeys!
*stay tuned for my holiday bear update on my web site next week*have a swell weekend!
