hello there!!

  Well, I have been so neglectful of this space... I still post on a (mostly) regular basis over at honeyed heaven.  It just seems that with work (I work A LOT!) and heat and trips to eat froyo and berry picking, this blog seems to always get lost by the wayside. I promise to make an effort to check in more. And the seasons are starting to shift. I feels like fall, then it turns hot again... Still, I'm getting warm and cozy things into the shop every day. And I'm saving for a big birthday/brothers wedding trip in oct (and a fall journey with my littles to orcas island) so I've tripled the amount of items I'm posting daily.

    So much goodness happening in my little shop! Hope you're enjoying the last bits of summer!! I am! xo m

oh, astral boutique (and new stuff!)

  My lovely pal Sasha (mistress of this domain!) seemed a little blue so I sent here a package. She even blogged about it at her wonderful blog, Astral Boutique, it totally made my day!!I got into blogging when my little one was a tiny baby and I was at home and lonesome and wanted like minded ladies to connect with... I'm afraid my blog dreams of a realm of many new friends weren't really realized in those early days but I did eventually meet the gem of a lady that is Sasha and I'm ever so happy to call her a friend. The kind of friend that I've never "seen" in real life (yet!!) but a true inspiration and a dear, always ready to answer questions or lend a little support over the occasional woes of our etsy lives...
  and speaking of etsy... well, I've been quite neglectful this work blog. I have been listing plenty of things in my shop, although June was slooow, July is picking up though! Stop by and check it out! see?

Summer is here, and I'm sooo glad! xo m

purple moon ahead...

  I slipped this silk + dye fantasy wrap into the shop the other day. So dreamy and soft and free... Perfect for reciting love poetry under a full moon...

  Spring is here and with it... Romance... I've been bitten by the blossoming spring crush bug. Just a little. xo m

spring sweaters...

   A whole gang of new sweaters made it into the sweater section of my shop this week. Here in the Pacific Northwest, it's so drizzly and windy year round that I always have at least a sweater...  Just the thing to keep away Springtime chills...

  Today it's more like umbrella weather round here. Gonna stay inside making these gems and hoping it will dry up a bit. xo m

in dreams...

  I've created a new herbal tea blend. The key element to this blend is the magical herb Mugwort. There is also chamomile, sage and a few other lovely herbs. Drank before bed it helps in have vivid, intense, lucid dreams. Even prophetic dreams... Plus, it's quite calming on digestion, relaxing and has a nice floral, slightly earthy flavor. Find "In Dreams" tea in my etsy shop.

Here's to a lovely and restful weekend. xo m

dress line...

   I'm finishing up grading patterns for a few simple dresses to introduce to the shop. I think I'll make one of a kinds in vintage fabrics and also have a made to order option in simple colors and maybe a little hand painting on the body... so much work. It's a good thing but I wish I had an extra pair of hands. I can't keep up with all my ideas... I'll just keep writing them down and I'll get to them eventually.
 blending teas...
 assistant sunbather...
 I will probably make a few tanks out of old t shirts to put into the shop as well. time permitting...
my "cart"while thrifting... piles and piles of clothes and bags and shoes to list. Easing into Spring. I got lucky and came across a ton of lightweight knits for dress making. now to eat a quick lunch and get back to work. xo m

teas please!

   Finally!! I'm so excited that I had the time to put together a listing for my first organic tea blend. After many months of formulating and taste testing (it's been a pretty caffeinated fall/winter round here) I have 6 blends that I'm real into and today's debut tea is "Deadwood". A sultry spiced Darjeeling Chicory brew.

You can peruse the Bluebell & Bonnet tea shop here! All orders will be packed with a few little surprises as well. I can't wait to list my next blend. Can u guess what it'll be? xo m
