One of my very, very best customers is a fellow crocheter! She has so many orders and projects that she probably has a hook in her hand more often than not. To help keep her projects organized and secure, she ordered herself a custom lidded project keeper in blues and greens. Didn't this turn out pretty? Check out more pictures HERE.

It's a very soggy day here in northern Virginia. I've got my Life Is Good ball cap on, though, and I'm getting ready to do a little thrifting while my daughter is at school. What do you have going on this fine Monday?

Meet Queen Kali- the giant bundle of joy! She was born a few days before Easter. I wrapped her up, and sent her off into the world yesterday. On one hand, I was anxious to see her get on her way. On the other hand, no amount of packing tape and insurance made me feel better about leaving her in someone else's hands. Oh Lordy- is this a teeny taste of what it will be like when my baby girl leaves home?

Samantha, the artist and shopowner, creates "one of a kind wearable art. Designed, carefully thought out and hand crafted from all different types of remnants." She currently features wrist cuffs and rings, and believe me, each one is even more lovely than the next!
Choosing a favorite is impossible, and don't these photos do an excellent job of showcasing the gorgeous details of these items? From the chosen bits of embroidery pieced from antique linens, to the delicate lacework and minute beads and bits of sparkle, the eye is treated to a spectacular feast with every shot.
I feel exceedingly more beautiful and feminine just having spent time in this shop! Samantha's goal is "to create items which are lovely to look at and a joy to wear", and I can tell by reading the descriptions and looking at the photos that she is very serious about this intention.
The items showcased here are just a tiny tidbit of what this amazing shop has to offer. Please treat yourself to a visit to Remnants Jewelry when you have a moment to swoon and dream a little. I dare you to try to choose just one favorite! Please come back and post a comment here after you have poked around; I can't wait to hear your thoughts!

According to poll results from a few months back, rag rugs are most popular in the kitchen and sunroom/porch...so tell me, what shape would you consider? I love to make round and rectangular rugs, but I can stretch my wings and go for oval or half-moon as well. Please leave a comment and/or vote on the poll widget to the right.
Thank you in advance for your help! Happy weekend :)
