The White Room.. Decorated

It's done! It's been done... for a while. Though I was hoping to post pictures when I gotten a bed frame I liked and had a new home in the house for the trunk but this is reality and its been far too long without sharing, so here are the pics :)

I love how it feels cold, yet cozy... for now I have no vision for the walls and have found in the process of decorating the house that I like mirrors... we have at least one in every room except the sitting room upstairs. I like that mirrors reflect light and open up the room, frames can be ornate as well which add to the decor but mirrors are hard not to love :)

I hope you enjoyed the update! :) Happy decorating everyone! Thank you for reading!

UPDATE 9/8/13:

I've since gotten a daybed scrolly frame from a freecycler for this room! :) I also was able to move the trunk into the study and acquired a samller night stand. I will of course need to piant the night stand at some point but it makes a much better nightstand than the file cabinet I had there before ;). The room has gotten a bit more "white" since I last took pictures... here are a few updates...

Lovely blues...

A trip to the grocery store had me taking a detour to Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics tonight.

I have a custom order for The Scholars Collar Scarf and needed to grab more yarn.

I checked Michaels first for the sapphire blue I needed and no dice... I did however spot an amazing teal color that I had to make mine! As I looked at it the color seemed to dance in front of my eyes - its so vibrant!

My thinking is to make some heart bunting with this beautiful color like that of one I have in my shop.

With Real Teal in my hand I scanned the rows one last time at Michael's yarn selection for the blue I needed and saw there was a sale on Sugar n Cream cotton (oh yes! ;)) Of course I have an idea for this blue too! I want to knit up a beautiful open work soap sock...

Onto JoAnn Fabrics - we found our sapphire blue within a few seconds of reaching the yarn area and then I spotted a beautiful pink that I somehow managed to walk away from... I reasoned I have lots of yarn already (if its possible ;))

Here is the beautiful blue we'd been working our way to, discovering other wonderful hues along the way :)

oh ideas, ideas... so little time so many colors...

Chocolate chip cookies and... Chewy?

Yep! I made some chocolate chip cookies tonight since we all needed a lil something for dessert AND I managed to finish Mr. Chewy!

Here is a quick pic of him... I'll share a more "official" pic once the Ewok is done too.

Onto start the Ewok!

Star Wars Chewbacca!

Yes, yes - he's almost done! I cannot claim his pattern as my own but Lucy hooked me up :) She is pretty talented!

I got her pattern since a friend of mine requested Chewbacca and an Ewok - so for starters - feast yer eyes!! :)

His pattern also came with a bag which I will rustle up tomorrow and I hope to have an Ewok head put together by the end of tomorrow night as well :) cross your fingers for me! So many projects - and time just flies!

Clarice - New inspiration for lostsentiments

I recently acquired a lovely 7inch tall made in japan doll. The lady I got her from said she was going through her moms things and was tired of holding onto things out of guilt. I was happy to help her of course - she had originally posted the freecycle email saying this was a bisque doll in need of TLC. Seeing the lil ceramic doll I did not care about what she lacked... her lovely doll face was enough to charm me!

Once I brought her home I started taking pictures of her. Not sure when I'll use her and actually I managed to knock her over causing her to lose he head again - lol oops!

For now - here are a few shots to make her debut - please welcome Clarice... she is so dynamic :)

Fallout 3 Bobblehead Revisited

Back in 2009 I was asked to make an amigurumi of the Fallout 3 Bobblehead after finishing the bobblehead I showed my husband and he immediately wanted one :) I've had several other projects come up since December 2009 but I hadn't forgotten his request... while I was hoping to his bobblehead done by his birthday in July, July came and went without me starting a stitch on it...

December came and I was determined to have it done for him by Christmas. Between custom orders for the etsy shop I worked on the bobblehead and knew that though he really liked the original work, that I could be more detailed. And I would be more detailed...

I used oval safety eyes instead of circular ones I had on the previous bobblehead and gave great care to the shape of his hair and hands. I was able to bring this guy to life in time for Christmas :) (yay!) and recently snagged the bobble from his desk long enough to take a few pics to share with you! :) I hope you like him!! :)

My little vintage pillow...

That's right.. it's mine! All mine! Well, until someone buys it ☺. For now I'm holding it nice and safe with the other items wishing for new homes right now that I sell from my shop.

I must tell you though, I got a new camera from the hubs for Christmas and I'm now having fun with the pics that would have otherwise been trashed if it weren't for effects from!

Tonight I was going through photos I want to update for the shop and found this one in a file - picnik to the rescue! I'm in love with it! Might there be a market for old vintagesque (<---tee hee, not a word ;))pics? I dare say... yes...

Fun Post it notes for the shop!

The weekly run to the grocery puts us at Target first for the frozen section goodies (and great prices - seriously ;)), but to get there we have to pass the(dun-dun-dun)dollar section. Every so often I'll rummage through there and find something that makes me think of a girlfriend who would also find the lil dollar bundle adorable so I get it. What can I say, a lil dollar spending makes me happy :)

This past week when we hit up Target we passed the dollar section since it had been revamped after the Christmas holiday. In place of where the wrapping paper used to be there was now a slew of post its, stamps and stamp pads. I found this post it and HAD to have it! Since I couldn't only find the one on the shelf I all the more have coveted this lil number! I look forward to using it when writing thank you's and adding little notes to customers.

Still contemplating the stamp pads that were there... is a dollar too much to for an inch and a half by maybe 3 inch colored stamp pad?? Hmmm...
