Look of the Day: Star Top & Neckerchief

Why, hello again! I got what I wished for. It's sunny and almost 70° outside! Certainly not a typical November day, but then again, it is Election Day, so perhaps the sun is getting ready to explode. That way we could just all forget this whole thing. I've only cried a little bit, but I'm sure more tears are in my future. And alcohol. 

I don't own a pantsuit, but I thought little stars on navy blue and some red lipstick were nasty-enough. I just can't believe I got the chance to vote for a woman, from a major party, who has an actual chance to be president. It's going to be a crazy night, no matter what the outcome. Here's to a stronger, happier, America!

Lately: Autumn 2016

 I hate to start a blog post by talking about the weather, but it affects my posting so much, I can't help it! This October has been the rainiest on record. Boo. 

This time last year, I had 4 posts published in October, and was ramping up on Etsy for the holiday season. I noticed the other day that my product views were way down, mainly because I hadn't listed anything new on Etsy. That's when I realized I hadn't gone out to take photos with a real camera (not just my phone) in weeks, resulting in zero new listings and zero blog posts! I'm hoping November is a little drier (or a little snowier?!) so I can take some actual outfit photos!

My favorite accessory right now: the handkerchief.

My newest card features a hand-carved tiger moth stamp. I think I'll carve a whole series.

Taken on a day that was dry enough to bring my camera out.

This is Otto's nervous look. He hates the car.
