Labeled, Packaged, Shipped!

You may recall one of the items I donated to the Hearts for Haiti shop was purchased last Sunday by a lovely Etsy patron!

After feverishy knitting up the Buttoned Up Neck Bone in a new version (olive green!), it shipped out last week and should arrive shortly to its new owner (who I hope likes it).

Here is a snap of the Neck Bone, labeled up, and ready for shipment. I also included a special free gift– a tweed knitted heart which I marked “Haiti”, for the purchasers generous support to the cause. You can see the heart here, as well as another snap of the Neck Bone.

Remember! My Lace Waist is still available in the Hearts for Haiti shop, so donate away! All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders.

Many many thanks to everyone who supports handmade nation and good causes like Relief in Haiti.

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since…

And shop at ZenThreads, the greatest of t-shirt creation on the web!

Humble blogger fancies herself a t-shirt gal; if it’s not a plain white boys v-neck undershirt, then its a schmancy silkscreened one ususally of esoteric meaning, like one that says W.W.A.S.D? (think: Amy Sedaris!).

But I got some pretty excellent comments in work the other day for my latest purchase; a one Salvador Dali with his famous moustache.

File Under: Let jealousy ensue. Covet.

The mountain would “cow(l)-er” in my presence. Rawr!

Might I suggest that you, too, can strike a pose if you buy a deliciously over-sized recycled sweater cowl from Mountain Girl, a brilliant crafter out of Peterborough, N.H. who sells her lovely eco-friendly wares on etsy.

Last week I gushed over a recycled gray sweater cowl, that I scooped it up for a mere $3o-ish dollars, and it was well worth every penny.

Of course, it blocked a pretty descent New Englang wind the other day when my friend MacKenzie and I went apple picking at Lookout Farm in Natick. Holding on to the hope of Indian Summer, I stupidly wore shorts. And flip flops.

But at least I had flannel and Mountain Girl wearables.

So scoop some up. Now.

And you, too, can strike a pose poking fun at all those people who like to pose for shots of them jumping. Because they are so carefree. You know, of course, we had to.

Chins without beards deserve no honor.

So says a beyond brilliant Spanish Proverb that I’ve always desired to drop in a social setting somewheres. So wait for it…

That being said, yes, I definitely took the plunge and bought this amazing “Beards Are Sexy” tshirt, courtesy of the delishhh etsy shop of The Bold Banana.

The reasons?

1. I think beards are sexy…or at least, beards on the right sorts of people (namely fellows…fellows who also have good, robust facial hair of the non-patchy kind)

2. Who can deny themselves a tshirt that says something so utterly simple yet outrageous?

It was totally worth it too; just $14, the shirt looks high quality. Quite frankly, though, I could care less if it was of the highest quality. It could have a wee hole in the armpit and I’d probs still buy it.

You find anything on Etsy lately?
