A Place at the Table

I love using cloth napkins, they feel super fancy and add a formality to any table setting. They are also so much better for the earth then disposables.
New designs are always so exciting. Something about an idea being manifested is just so gratifying. I am not sure how often I will be able to offer these in my Etsy shop, but they are here for now. I may end up listing them as custom items in the future. This design was inspired by an old printers block, and of course altered and embellished. The napkins were sewn by me from unbleached, USA made 100% cotton.

For a family get together on Valentine's Day, I made these little cupcakes. Because I am hopelessly uncool, I documented the process. And yes, I cut out all the hearts individually, by hand.

Thrift Store Treasure

So, I have a prized possession. I confess to liking it more then my Bob Dylan records and possibly as much as my cats. Where did I find this beauty? Well, it came from one of my favorite places, The Salvation Army. I find myself trolling around there at least once a week, waiting for some divine item to make itself known.
I paid $14.99 for this fully functional stand mixer, from the 1950's. It is one of the only electronic items I have ever purchased from a thrift store, knowing they never work. Yesterday I finally paid artistic homage and committed it to print. This weekend this little piece of my heart will be available in my Etsy shop as prints, and on flour sack towels at the end of the month. Maybe you will enjoy it as much as I do!
