Yesterday I wrapped up the first of my commissions and sent it off to its new home. I added a little bit of fennel from the front bed, I love their dusty white blooms. While most of my garden is limping along, the fennel can always be counted on to go crazy and try to take over. It's pretty and ferny, although sometimes you have to yank it up and remind it to share :)
I like sending my originals off in pretty packaging. I think it makes getting treats in the mail all the more exciting when you get to undo pretty paper and ribbons. And you know I like pretty dishes-- last night I brought home a complete white porcelain tea set and now I'm just itching to start painting it. I think I'll sell each piece individually this time around, and not necessarily do a matching set. But I'm happy to say that in the future, if anyone's looking for a custom painted tea set, I should be able to do it! :)
As for myself, I'm still on the hunt for pretty blue and white dishes. Still haven't found just the perfect ones. I love the dishes that she has in this post, actually I love almost everything about her style. Do you ever get decorating crushes? Lol....
Well, we're headed for a 103* day today. So I think I'll stay in and work on some knitting. Perhaps if I start now, I might actually get some things done by christmas ;)
And thanks to all of you who have come to this new space with me! I so love seeing you, and also meeting the new friends who've stopped by. I love reading all your comments, and I'm making it a new policy to be more chatty with you all in the comments section.
Well, better start breakfast...
