Sharpies on Ceramics

I don't know about you, but I keep seeing the thing about using sharpie on ceramic and baking it on Pinterest and thinking it's too good to be true. Here's one blogger's well executed test--- It's all over Pinterest...that you can draw on ceramics with a Sharpie and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes and it's permanent. I've used a number of special glass paints available at the local craft s...


Aren't these adorable? Something my mom gave me when she closed her antique shop.


Oof, a bit behind with my shop. Newest orders packaged to mail though! Including one to Switzerland. Fun!


Second batch of fat quarters. A bit more earthy that the first batch


A glance at my latest dyebath. This was one of my favorite color sessions from this set of fat quarters.


Mixing up some more dyes on my hot hot screened in porch this afternoon. A bit tight of quarters since the bunk bed my husband is building for our girls is still out there too, about half done. 07/23/2012

Preparing some fat quarters of Kona cotton for dying! Haven't done dyework in a while so it's pretty exciting!


We're on vacation for remodelling! No really---- new flooring in the bedroom means the contents of the bedroom is blocking all my shop goods so, we'll be back in the New Year, with some new listings.

Vintage Virgin Mary Pendant in chain

for some reason I am falling for this little pendant. I need to take some better pictures I think because these don't really do it justice. A small Virgin Mary pendant on a chain, she is a pretty brass with a vintage verdegris patina. The back has an almost ghostly worn image of Jesus 07/01/2011

Am about to have a ton of new buttons and charms to list! Sadly my mom is retiring from her antique business but suggested I sell some of her button inventory for her.


my little wind up robot went to meet a new friend! Isn't this cute! Thank you for the adorable photo Caren. {she has a blog at }


custom silks currently soaking in dye in the sun... beautiful day for dyeing.


OK not to sound crazy but I am looking for white cotton underwear with no exposed elastic-- I tie dye them and the elastic doesn't take the dye like the cotton does. I used to get Hanes ComfortSoft but they seem to have discontinued their packages of all white in favor of a "neutrals" pack (tan, pink and black) Anyone? 04/18/2011

Vintage Wind up Robot by chaoticwhimsey on Etsy

Poor little robot.. so many people like him, but no one wants to give him a home A Vintage 80s wind up robot. It still winds up but the walking motion is really slow like the spring has lost a lot of its spring. Super cute

Salvatore Ferragamo Classic Grey and Black Low by chaoticwhimsey

These fabulous shoes are getting a lot of attention-- they've been listed only 12 hours and have already been "hearted" 4 times and featured in two treasuries! This find was too good to be true, until I realized I cant wear a width of 4A. These are extremely narrow shoes. My loss, your gain! Very cute


Just sold some vintage shoes to Spain. I've never shipped to Spain before. Kind of neat :)


listing lots of new things in the next few days :)
