Signs of Fall...

As soon as the calendar changes to August, I know Summer is over.  Sure it's hot, everything is green but I just feel it.  And I always hope to have all my winter crochet work complete for Christmas sales...I never have; but this year I am at my all time closest.
  • One toddler pumpkin hat done and modeled by one of my sweet pumpkins.  I'll add 2-3 baby sizes and offer these in store and online on Etsy
  • Last year my chunky basket weave hats were such a hit, but I did not have nearly enough.  I'm getting faster in that I can make 1 in 1 or 2 nights.  This year there will be upgrades like pom poms and flowers and where possible (i.e., I have enough yarn)...a matching scarf! 

I also have some pretty big news...we're opening an AirBnb vacation rental above our shop!  So, if you've ever wanted to visit New Orleans, Baton Rouge, or surrounding areas, we invite you to check out centrally located Ponchatoula and Rest above the Nest.  I'm detailing our progress (or procrastination) in a new blog: LeRoost.  We hope to be ready for your visit by the end of this month.
work in progress!
And, sadly the beautiful line of vintage inspired jewelry, Bella Vintaj, I carried for about 2 years has been discontinued.  I loved this line so much and you'll usually find me wearing a piece or two everyday, but it never took off as I think it wasn't simple enough for the casual buyer.  The idea was you could edit and add charms changing your look constantly on a base necklace or bracelet.

Anywho, the good news is I just added the remaining charms in my inventory to Etsy...these are 40% off retail.  A good deal on quality made goods, but my quantities are limited so check that out now here.

Until next time!
