my sweet curious little girl is 11 months old today
she is climbing anything and everything...all day every day
in fact, we converted our dining room into a play room to accomodate this little busy body
we broke down the table and replaced it with a small sofa which i LOVE
because this room is right off the kitchen and it gets the best light
it's a great place to hang out while coffee is brewing or dinner is on the stove
plus we NEVER ate at the dining room table anyways so we don't even miss it.
she has recently taken her first couple of steps and is beginning to understand more of what we say
she also hums little tunes as she falls asleep and loves to brush her hair.
two things that are currently making me melt :)
she is the brightest, busiest, sweetest, funniest, most delicious little thing i could ever imagine
and i am so utterly in love with every little thing about her, i could just burst!

i thought you should know about Anne Ten Donkelaar
an artist from the Netherlands who creates strange and fantastic designs
from bits and pieces found in nature
words cannot begin to explain the magical quality of her work
the magnificent piece of jewelry pictured above is titled Wittenoord
"This is the story of a woman who lived in Wittenoord.
Here she found almost jewel like pieces of nature.
They were beautiful, but very fragile.
They had to be protected, so she made glass beads
to put them in so they can be worn and admired. "
'By protecting these precious pieces under glass, I give the objects a second life
and hope to inspire people to make up their own stories about them.' - Anne
you can find more of her work here

how great is this knit kitty from severina
she has the prettiest coloring and the sweetest little stance
so quirky and fabulous...there's nothing like handmade!
in fact i've been thinking alot lately about
the importance of things that are made by hand
i need to put my thoughts into words
and do a little post about it
so much to say.

i spent some time shooting the dolls today.
unfortunately, once i downloaded the images
i noticed the lighting was funky. so now i've got to reshoot everything...irk!
anyways, i thought the kitty turned out all right so i wanted to show her off :)
i also have some new headbands and dreamcatchers.
all of which will be trickling into my shop very very soon.
