Christmas in PA

Tuesday, December 21, 2010


Life has been keeping me busy. November and December especially have been the busiest months ever. I felt like they would never end and it is only now on the 21st of December that I feel like I finally have a minute to sit down and post. I wish I had pics for documentation but I guess I just haven't been taking the time to get the old point-and-shoot out. So instead, i'll make a boring bulleted list of things that have happened and things that will happen in the future..
  • Holiday Fair season is over! So happy about this because it stresses me out.
  • I started making jewelry focusing mainly on chains. I love getting my Mr. T on with big chains.
  • I'm going home for Christmas in a few days and excited for the forced break in PA.
  • I'm planning my Spring collection for Mary Savel which I'm excited to announce will include a crocheted top, jewelry, and hopefully many more totally awesome surprises.
2011 will be my year.
I hope.
Oh, I'd also like to note, that I still have some awesome stuff up on my Vintage Etsy site!
Yo, check out this cat. He is so cute.
Happy Holidays.

Smileys Yarn Sale

Um, so I went to the Smileys Yarn Riot Sale the other day at the Holiday Inn in Midtown Manhattan (a lot of really weird things going on in that statement) and snapped these really good quality pics. I was definitely in the minority age-wise, but I was NOT in the minority gender-wise.
All weirdness aside, I got a really good deal on 100% wool...10 skeins for $15! What?!
Yea, get there.
I'm making a sweater for myself with it. Pics to come!

Loosen Up My Buttons. Babe.

NEVER DID I EVER think that I would be so AMPED about making my own buttonholes. I've always found this to be a major obstacle that I would have to solve by outsourcing so I've just avoided using them all together in my sewing. But then I found this make your own buttonhole link and i'm really excited to try it. Like REALLY excited. Thanks Jeffery!
I like this little bit at the end.... Spend a little time on practicing buttonholes. It will build up your confidence.
I'll give it a shot.

SaveMe New Stuff

Check it out guys...New stuff is up and is hot.

I just listed some great new coolVINTAGE pieces.

I love this oversized sweater / dress. It would be so cute with thick tights and boots right now in this weather.
Get it here...
And then there is this one. Its super sheer, so you'd wear a slipdress underneath but so cool in like a Stevie Nicks modern Gypsy kinda way. You know?
Get your Gypsy on...

Your basic LBD. Super short but high comfortable neckline. It's a good basic.
Check it...

I love this dress but it's just a tiny bit too big for me. Which makes me kinda sad because when I tried it on I kinda felt like how Julia Roberts' character probably felt in Pretty Woman. (after of course she gets her Richard Gear makeover on).
Get your Pretty Woman here!

Me? an exhibitionist? No way.

The Silver Lining

I stopped dying my hair black about a year ago, when I first noticed a lot of grays popping up. And while I'm not anywhere NEAR having a full head of silvery gray locks like this, perhaps one day I will be, and I too think that might make a cool picture.
