My First Post!

I’ve been thinking about doing a blog for some time now. Several months ago I was searching for tips on an Amy Butler Weekender Bag I was about to begin making. I found a blog (can’t remember where now) that documented the person’s journey while making this bag. I say “journey” because that is what it was…it’s a love hate relationship with that bag. First I hated it (while making it), then I loved it (after using it)…and I’m almost ready to try another one.

Anyway, I digress, which is common. So…I thought it was cool that I could benefit from her experiences on the bag and avoid at least a few wounds along the way. Then I thought…how fun would it be to talk about the things I’m making…not only the items for my website (, but also those that just strike my fancy. My husband would be thrilled to not have to hear the story about the barkcloth I found and the four people who owned it before me…and so on (I love the history of things). So…here I am!

What can you find here? You can find my ramblings, my latest and greatest finds (vintage chandelier post & pics coming soon), and new products as they come to life. There might even be a few pictures of my crazy studio…which is always in a heap of fabric...and who knows what!! Thanks for finding me here and let me know what you think!
