I whipped up a little cornflower blue microsuede carrying pouch. Our customer filled the necklace with pictures of two beloved relatives, and voila -- something blue for the bride to carry in her purse on the special day.
Lockets make magical personalized gifts. This version was crafted in France from vintage molds. We carry this style in the pictured antique silver version, and a warm gold tone as well.

Now, by customer request, I'm offering the Charlotte as a custom photo product. I took image above a few months back and thought it would be a fun picture for the outside of a Photo Charlotte sample. You might choose a picture of your dog, your sister's twins, or a snapshot from a trip to Thailand. ($36 - choices include image, microsuede, and lining color.)

These sweet little clay projects are on display in a special nook in a space designed by my mom for a client. The child who made the sculptures is all grown up, but the whimsical pieces will always remain young.
This picture is one exception. I wanted to capture the creamy shadows of this curtain so I let the hallway fade to near black.

I urge you to visit her site to read her witty narration and to view lots of the great pictures she took of Susannah, Laura Bee Bags, and even a few shots of me.

Whenever I look at you, I know that you are my friend. It makes me so happy when you smile at me from your brightly colored home on my wallet.
I'm not the only one who loves you dear Monkey. Our customers can't get enough of you. They call, email, and visit us to make new monkey friends.
Why, just the other day, a Seattle woman came in to whisk some of your Monkey pals away to two girls in Serbia.
You are an international sensation Sock Monkey. I'm so glad you are my friend, right there in my purse, waiting to say 'Hello,' when I need a little cheer.

We're still catching up from taking an extra day off this weekend. Here's a picture of Otis on Richmond Beach. He actually went right into this pose on his own without any coaxing. I think he wanted to show off his buff pecs.
