Exciting News!

I have exciting news to share! We will be moving our store to 1708 A W 39th St. We will be located across from Chipotle Restaurant. Our big, bright new store will allow us to carry more work from more local artists. I love West 39th Street, and I am very excited to join the other shops already there. The store currently needs a fresh coat of paint, as the bright pink and purple that the previous tenant favored will simply not work for me. I'm thinking I will stay with the same colors we are currently using, adding a darker green for the trim.

So come check out our new location next week! We should have the painting finished by then. And if you know any great local artists or handcrafters please send them my way!

I've been a little MIA here in blogland lately. So here's a quick rundown of what's been going on:


Halloween was fun! This was our first Halloween at the new house, and we had lots of kids come by. Saw some really creative costumes. My favorite was the peace-loving hippie family. The dad should receive an award for Father of the Year. Full hippie costume, strumming his guitar the entire time, and two little girls singing "Give Peace a Chance" at every door. They even sang on the walk between houses! Loved them!

Autumn was a ghoul. She wore a long black robe, full face paint, and black angel wings. One of her girlfriends spent the evening with us, she was a whoopie cushion. They both received full pillowcases of candy. Autumn is such a little party pooper. Her body shuts down promptly at 9 pm. So we hung out with her friend after she went to bed. Her little friend is quite the night owl, and I finally left her downstairs at 11:30.


I love the cooler weather, because it keeps my crochet inspiration flowing!
Here are some of my latest creations:

I think the gray alpaca hat is my favorite hat ever. It is super soft and very classy. All of the above are available in the shop and over at Etsy.

Have a great week, everyone!

My friend Sylvia came in the shop for a visit today. She was telling me about some Fall redecorating she completed on her home. It sounds lovely! Lots of pumpkins and warm, cozy colors.

I always nest this time of year. The cooler weather makes me want to create a cozy, warm feeling in my home. I dream of nights in front of the fire, eating big bowls of hearty soup with my family. David is a master bread baker, and I look forward to trying his delicious creations.

David requested some new slippers, so I made a black and white cotton pair to keep his feet warm and comfy. I enjoyed making them so much that I made several others, and they are now available in my Etsy store.

I am currently working on new hats and scarves, and will be listing daily. What are you working on lately?

Have a great weekend!

Face Scrub

We often have customers ask if we carry a face scrub. Well, not yet. Mostly because it is so easy to make your own at home. I use a recipe similar to this one, and substitute whatever oils I have on hand. You can adjust it to suit your skin.

My mother and grandmother both had gorgeous skin, and both swore by simple egg white facials. Simply brush egg whites on your face, let dry, and then rinse off. Your skin will feel firm and soft.

What simple skincare routines do you follow?

Cooler Weather Means Crochet Time!

The weather has been a bit cooler here in Missouri, and I have been crocheting like mad. The scarf in the picture above is sold, but there are still lots of fresh hats and scarves in the store. Stop by and see what's new!
