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. ~~

Summer

 

I’ve been procrastinating with updated this blog, and I blame these video games: Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Lights, and Ni no Kuni. I’ve already started on fan art for both of them. I received new watercolor brush pens for my birthday and I can’t wait to use them for coloring!

Speaking of my birthday, I had a great one!

I spent the weekend with my family and received a few goodies like the yarn pictured above. I just love all of the colors together! I still haven’t decided what I want to make with them. πŸ™‚

I also received bunches of tomato sprouts. I only had these size containers to put them in, so hopefully they will stay healthy. They’ve already grown a bit since I took this picture a week and a half ago.

I’ve been busy adding new items to my store, including some vintage sewing notions, washi tape, and cute stickers. More items are added almost daily! πŸ™‚

Happy summer solstice, everyone!
