Finished!

I posted a progress shot of this a while back. My goodness it’s taken a while, but I’m finally finished! I haven’t listed this on Etsy yet, as I need to take more photos.

Pearls & Flower

I’m looking forward to making more pieces in this style and another I’m about to finish. Stay tuned!

eta – I guess I could add that I hand strung the beads and that’s a vintage brooch in the center of the flower. It’s adorned with dark teal metallic leaves with contrasting machine stitched detailing, and ties with two double-faced satin ribbons.

Halloween 2010 by Rifle Paper Co.

I’ve been a big fan of Rifle Paper Co. for a while now and when I saw these on Poppytalk today I knew I had to repost. These invitations and cards are the cat’s meow!

Autumn is upon us!

Ok, it’s a teeny bit before the Equinox and it’s been hot again these last several days, but the change in the air is very apparent and it makes us oh-so very happy!

This was our tablescape in the bedroom last year. We need to start on the dining room, pronto!

Blogger|Facebook Image Fail

It looks like I’m not the only one not able to link posts to Facebook and receive the dreaded ‘image not available’ from Flickr. I was getting extremely frustrated, especially since I’ve made a Happy Heathen page on FB. I searched the Flickr Help Forums and found this thread. I’m hoping for a speedy resolution. And yes, I meant that pun!

More acorns!

It looks as though I’m not finished for the day. I found these via Pinterest and fell in love with them! I thought it would be selfish to keep these treasures all to myself.

Bon Weekend with the multi-tasker.

Yes, another photo of Malkie. But he makes me take pause, literally, when his paws are all over my work.

I thought I’d throw in a little detail shot that was previously featured on The Handmade Artist. Malkie usually lends a hand while I’m drawing patterns, either for costume projects as in the photo above, or when I draw my stitching guidelines for my products.

Bon weekend and see you next week! I hope to start the week off with a feature about our amazing friend, Kirk Burkett and his mind blowing absinthe cane!

Plasma Kaleidoscope

Michael was playing with some photos of his coils and attempting to create some kaleidoscope like effects with the plasmas streams. He decided to download a plug-in for Photoshop and got some cool results. The first three were done by him goofing around and the last three are done via the plug-in.

Ultimate Bachelors Bathroom

Our dear friend Mike { or Liver, as most affectionately call him } played host to our incredible Labor Day weekend in Allentown. He lives downtown in a gorgeous white Brickote Victorian, built in 1874. He’s lived there for many years and is slowly renovating the place. I think one of the showcase features of the home is the upstairs bathroom, a true mens palace. Mike had a urinal built in the middle of the room with the commode on the opposite side. Now, some of you may think ‘EW’ at the thought, but from a man’s prospective { or at least every guy I’ve shown these photos to, not to mention the guys at the Fest™ } it’s all ‘hell yeah’. It’s one of the cleanest spaces I’ve ever encountered. Then again, the whole house is kept pretty immaculate. There are some finishing details that need to be completed. That just means that Michael and I are just going to have to go back sometime soon to see if finished. 🙂

Yay! I found a photo of the front of the house that one of our friends snapped.

Resouces
Lights were all Tec Lighting, can get them from lots of upscale/commercial places.
Urinal – Home Depot online.
Sinks – custom made dyed concrete.
Faucets – Kraus Millennium from Overstock.com.
Lockers – a now closed commercial reclamation charity place.

Sadly, I did not get any decent photos of the tiny broom closet bathroom conversion that is pretty darn incredible.

Bon Weekend

Things have been a tad hectic here this week and I’ve been slow to post. I was supposed to participate in the Holy City Artists and Fleas market tomorrow at the Eye Level Art Gallery, but I’ve been overwhelmed to the point I had to pull out.

We were supposed to get rain for most of the weekend but the forecast has changed. I’d love to wake up to a nice grey day. I find them to be very calming.
