The Return of the Flower Fingerless Gloves

I've always loved fingerless gloves and the cozy dexterity they provide. We recently received a shipment of the wildly popular versions, pictured above. Made by Look at Me Designs, each pair is crafted from repurposed sweaters. Each is unique in color and texture.

$30 pair. Also pictured, the back of a Clara wristlet, $48 each.

Number Nine

Otis the shop pug turned nine in early February so we took him on a day of adventure. First we hiked in a local park.

His age may qualify him for AARP membership, but he's pretty sporty and spry.

Tempting Trims


Recently the owner of a huge lot of vintage sewing trims contacted me. She wanted to sell her goods because she was moving to Florida to be closer to her granddaughter. I went through a carload of amazing finds and settled on those that will work best on handbags and Laura Bee Designs products.

Here's the first teaser picture. I posted this image on Facebook last week, and several customers came in over the weekend to design with these very ribbons. It's a score for all of us! I look forward to unveiling new vintage ribbon options each week as I hand wash and air dry my haul.

Weiner Dogs for Pawsitive Alliance

I though you might enjoy seeing this dog-themed set I made and donated to Pawsitive Alliance. They will offer the Clara and mini wallet for bid and their upcoming silent auction.

Their mission: Pawsitive Alliance's mission is to help end the killing of adoptable dogs and cats in Washington by increasing adoptions, supporting spay and neuter programs, and improving pet retention.

Please join us in supporting this terrific organization!
