Decided to print up a little limited run (when they’re gone, they’re gone) of the rabbit skull patch in black this afternoon! Click through the photo for the listing.
Anonymous said: I keep trying to click on the link to the misprint grab bags, but I think the link might be broken because it say the item has already been sold :(
Actually, they’ve already sold out (I think 40 minutes might be a record sell out time for us). Sorry!
THERE ARE A DOZEN MISPRINT GRAB BAGS UP ON THE ETSY RIGHT NOW!! You get a back patch and a handful of smaller patches for a cool 4 dollars. They usually sell out pretty darn quick, so if you want one click through to check out the listing because we only post these once in a great while. <3
i love this shop. i got one of the misprint grab bags last round and got great patches. recommended! also they have a really cute informative cooking poster that i need
For those that missed it the last time round, I just posted 42 large grab bags (2 backpatches instead of one) for 5 bucks each. Click through the photo for the listing :)
I don’t ever really talk about it on tumblr…not sure why, but I’m really….really into nesting stuff….specifically textiles/furniture/collecting art/ hoarding a list of my favorite paint colors (if you were wondering my fave shade of green is Arsenic by Farrow & Ball, and I…
It’s french provincial, and looks like it’s probably cherry. Sort of a mini 4 drawered version of this dresser. It’s not normally my style, but in small doses…There’s other Widdicomb stuff that I get more excited about for sure. Right now I’m stripping about a million layers of paint and sharpie marker from it, so we’ll see if it’s salvageable, it looks like it has some pretty deep scratches.
I don’t ever really talk about it on tumblr…not sure why, but I’m really….really into nesting stuff….specifically textiles/furniture/collecting art/ hoarding a list of my favorite paint colors (if you were wondering my fave shade of green is Arsenic by Farrow & Ball, and I think that Benjamin Moore’s Mascarpone is a pretty universally flattering white to use with dark wood trim). I consistently fantasize about owning a fully restored Wedgewood stove, and have amassed almost a complete 8 person table setting comprised entirely of handmade ceramic dishes. Specifically, lately I’ve been obsessing over not just thrifting items I want, but figuring who made all of the furniture I already own/love and learning all about it. Researching the furniture that I’ve found in dumpsters, curbside and at goodwill has been super gratifying, and makes me feel more confident and affirmed in my taste (not that something being monetarily valuable is an affirmation of good taste, but more that being able to recognize that something is a quality construction without having any of the knowledge or language to describe it is pretty cool). Our house isn’t very specific to any one period, so there’s a Widdicomb night stand (which I’ve been carefully refinishing over the course of the past week), a handful of great condition Broyhill MCM pieces, and a couple of solid unmarked shaker pieces. Plus there is a coffee table with a brass etched top with the signature “G. Urs made in Italy”. It’s actually a similar design to this wall hanging I found after lengthy Google searching but I haven’t found anything on the coffee table yet. Do any of my followers know anything about furniture/the artist? Also learning about furniture on the internet is sort of the worst because all the forums I’ve been on are like MCM bros who are hoarding stuff to flip, and who don’t seem to understand why anyone would need to refinish furniture themselves/use a stain (eyeroll). All that to say, we are looking at buying this house up the street from us, and the interior is nice and deco even though the exterior is Queen Anne, and pretty much it’s just a dreamy design sandwich with original trim. Sigh.
Surfing real estate listings to cheer myself up and I stumbled on this little gem…it’s close by, how awesome would this be as a work/live space for Fennec?
So I’m trying to fill in the gaps when it comes to my admittedly limited knowledge of Fiber Arts/Textiles. I’m especially interested in finding solid historical overviews and then more in depth info on artists of note. Does anyone reccomendations for resources or artists I might want to check out (blogs, books, websites etc.) ?
peachjelly said: Wow, I think $40 is REALLY cheap for those beautiful tapestries. Anon has apparently never bought art that wasn't at Target before??
Riight? I mean, on one hand I totally understand not having the spare cash to buy art, but also I should be able to charge fairly for my stuff. I just wish that people understood that it’s more about me being able to like…afford to live, and not about making something unattainable for them. Plus there’s a ton of things in my shop that are super budget friendly, so…
