Vintage Goodness

My plants have grown a bit these past few weeks, but no yummy, red tomatoes have appeared yet. I’m starting to think they’re not getting enough sun. They’re also getting a bit big for the greenhouse so I’m planning on replanting them soon and lining them up outside with something protective covering it to ward off squirrels and other neighborhood creatures.

I am almost finished with my rainbow granny square blanket — just one more row to go! I do, however, have bunches of ends to weave in, but I won’t think about that now. πŸ˜‰

Once I’m finished I’m going to make a Bower Bird. I’ve been looking forward to this project for a while and can’t wait to get started.

The blanket would have been finished sooner — a lot sooner — but I have been busy these past couple of months with working on my shop, writing, and drawing. I got these lovely watercolor brush pens for my birthday and I’m having lots of fun practicing with them.

I’m also familiarizing myself with coloring with colored pencils — I want to improve my skill by using cheaper Crayola pencils before taking a dive to more high-quality/expensive ones. However, I am surprised by how well Crayola colored pencils can blend!

Here are some new listings for vintage paper ephemera I have listed inΒ my shop. There are lots of cute/kitsch postcards that have been recently listed, and there are many more to come. ~~
