Snow on the mountains , it's all about being warm and cozy this year. I'm bringing the poncho back. Warm poncho, skinny jeans and knee high boots! Making one out of charcoal gray sherling. Maybe I'll make more. I always want to make a lot of coats to sell, but never get enough time. So many ideas so little time...

Ohhhhhhla la !! I just got in these vintage cut velvets. Some are from France some originated in Belgium and some I just found at estate sales. Sometimes I just get little pieces, and some were ready to be made into pillows. I just love the feel of old velvets. And the colors are so fabulous!! Just starting to make some new purses with them. So if you want a little history and timelessness to add to your collection. Check out my shop soon!

It's nice having some horses next door. Piper wants one so bad.But this is a good arrangement for now.I've made these new black knit skirts with lace and applique, they are so pretty. The problem is I don't snap a picture of them before a show.So they've all sold already.I'm making more so I'll make sure I'll get a photo of them soon. Thanks again Heather for hosting a show.She makes the coolest hair bands. She's going to start selling them locally too! Should of taken a picture of that too.

I'm getting in so many cool vintage velvets. I use table runners,table cloths or old velvet coats. The feel and thickness of these velvets are amazing. I love working with them. There's just an integrity to something that has lasted through time and is still just as beautiful. It's like when I see a very old oil painting and the richness and depth of the color are still present. Amazing to me that something can last so long, when on the other end of the spectrum I buy clothing for my kids and it falls apart after the first washing.
