What a fun contrast!

The bottom photo is what I have completed so far. When finished, this bucket will be 18" wide and about 8" tall, with slot handles on each side. I look forward to working on this priceless heirloom every chance I get. I will be back with photos of the finished product in a week or so, and if we hope very hard, maybe this busy mom will even be able to share photos of the basket once it is home in the nursery, too!

Look for her in sosorosey soon!

The original fabric that was chosen for the rag trim turned out to be a disappointment. It had a loose weave, and when cut in the thin strip necessary for crocheting within these small stitches, it didn't hold up well at all. Thankfully, my customer was very understanding about this, and I managed to find a golden plaid that worked beautifully. These autumn beauties will be heading to Toronto tomorrow :)

The pillowcase turned into a fun little bowl, though; these colors really pop!
It's looking like it should be a relatively calm week around here. Hubby's birthday is next Sunday, so Sophie and I will be making mad preparations for a fun celebration. Other than that, I have a custom order to finish up and two to begin- that's always really exciting! Hope you have a super Monday, and a happy week :)

In order to keep my mind off of the tooth nightmare at hand, I've been happily playing with my new bold, eco-friendly baker's twine purchased from The Twinery. Clicking on the logo above will bring you straight to their website...but be careful- this twine is GORGEOUS! They shipped very quickly, the twine is just as beautiful in person, and they ship internationally, too.
I purchased the Caribbean, Peapod, Pink Sorbet, and Maraschino. These gift tags will be part of the holiday goodies for sale in sosorosey. I'm thinking of offering them as a set of 4, but I also wonder about the idea of having a listing for individual tags as well. Do you think someone might want to purchase just one special tag? Your feedback is very appreciated!

No, I haven't gone all Jersey Shore on you and changed my name to "The Coolness". This amazing board is what I'd like you to greet. Created by sosovintage customer and crafty diva extraordinaire, Lisa H. in Ohio, these boards are large, heavy, and oh so useful.

I love the harlequin look of these cards, and the pups are so cute and serious.
I may start offering sets of these cards in sosovintage. I can't be the only one enamored with these little works of art, can I? And, with the growing popularity of aceos, card sized frames are readily available in most craft stores now. I need a bunch, that's for sure!

I'm not sure why this song has been on my mind the last couple of days. Maybe it is the Back-to-School feelings coming on. This was the father~daughter dance song at my wedding. Not a dry eye in the house, I tell ya. Hope it moves you the way it does me.
The wing and the wheel... they carry things away
Whether it's me that does the leavin' or the love that flies away.
Oh, there's a chunk out of it's middle... big enough for an old fool to hide
Where are all the dreamers... that I used know?
We used to linger beneath street lamps in the halos and the smoke
The wing and the wheel... came to carry them away
Now they all live out in the suburbs
where their dreams are in their children at play
There's a pale sky in the east... all the stars are in the west
Oh, here's to all the dreamers... may our open hearts find rest
The wing and the wheel are gonna carry us along
And we'll have memories for company... long after the songs are gone
