autumn glamour

it hasn't been very hot at all and
we have been so busy it hasn't really seemed like summer.
maybe that's why our designs are taking
a decidedly glamorous and autumnal

hello fall!

summer romance...

so very recently, i noticed my creations taking a turn
for the girly.
could this be the effects of summer?
the influence of lovely gardens and farmers markets and
the cute baby bunnies running through my backyard?
suddenly, i feel like tea parties
and sundresses
and a pretty necklace
are just what i need.

i want

o.k., so i know that this is silly, but i really want this dish from
urban outfitters...
the reason this is silly is because i have about a million little dishes
to hold stuff and i have more than a few
bird-themed items ...
(o.k., a lot more than a few)

but i'm afraid i may not be able to resist...

flea market finds

abacus necklace by white owl

don't you just love it when you find something amazing and
lovely from a bygone era?
what could be cooler than a tiny brass abacus, (say it ten times really fast)
that really works, (if you know how to count with an abacus that is).
this one was combined with vintage brass chains... super cool.

lace love

new lace earrings for white owl

i've been experimenting with dyeing lace and coming up with some lovely results...
i love the subtlety of greys and beige and pale petal soft colors and
i've decided to add earrings to my etsy shop. i'm not sure whether more people are "earring people" or "necklace people", but i got crazy and made a lot of earrings in the last week.
let's see how folks react to these pretties...
