I’ve written about my Three Little Squares. There are now two little squares, which is very sad indeed, and they are used almost daily. I love that they are extremely easy to clean. Just a swipe of the thumb under a stream of running water is usually all it takes.
And I have mentioned this portrait by Miranda Mueller that I commissioned, but never showed it. Have a look. It’s my house.
My latest handmade goodies
An earring holder from local Repinned — I love locals, because I don’t have to wait for the mail. She made the earring holder quicker than I would have taken. I’d pinned it several times, and shopped several times with no luck. I wanted screen and a tabletop version. Not lace, not wire clothes lines, not hanging on the wall. I ended up asking a local handmade board if anyone could make an earring holder for me. Repinned to the rescue! My plan is to spray paint the back black. I fastened the back with only two of the four clasps to allow some give in the screen, making it easier to get the earrings on and off.
Even though I didn’t have to wait to get the earring holder because of the mailman, I do love happy mail. Like today.
Earrings from GoodSmiths vendor Julie Kujawa — I drive by the GoodSmiths office in Historic Valley Junction about once a month. And I love the Pacific Northwest, where the silversmith lives. Package rush! The box came today.
