Beading, my old friend

Source: Time to reorganize…

Seeing this artist’s beautiful beads reminds me that I haven’t beaded in a while. To long!  I must get back to my first love, thread a thin needle, & string small glass jewels. Make something beautiful.

For beautiful inspiration, visit her website. She makes such beautiful pieces, & sells kits as well.

Bulbasaur debut!

Got a custom order for a Bulbasaur Toque, so I wrote up the pattern!  Finally it is ready for sale on Ravelry.  The finished toque is available in my Etsy shop.


There is a lot of appliques & it was fun figuring out how to do the bulb.

I used pipecleaners on the ears so that they will stay standing up & a bit of polyfil in the bulb.

Find it in my Etsy shop & get the toque for 20% off, no coupon required.

Find it in my Ravelry shop & get the pattern for 40% off with coupon code DOOMBLOG

Spotting Pyrex: Preacher

I ❤ Pyrex!

I’m super excited when I spot it in my favorite tv shows & movies.  This was a really fast pan of the bbq fixing table & the lady scooping up potato salad in the premier episode of Preacher, named Pilot. But I caught the Pyrex “Easter Egg” the first time, and had to stop & rewatch to be sure.

It’s a Colonial Mist #403 Mixing Bowl!

I have this bowl, so that’s pretty nifty.  I ❤ spotting Pyrex on shows.

The show Preacher is pretty awesome. I haven’t read the comics at all, but the show doesn’t require you too. Looking forward to season 2, & hopefully more pyrex!

Gma’s Beautiful Treasures

I have the pleasure of re-homing some of Gma’s treasures, including an owl clock & bird cookie jar!


It’s already hanging in my kitchen and ticking away!


Another button box! This one with some pretty flatbacks & sequins. I wonder what flashy outfit they came from?


An amazing cookie jar with the sweetest birds on it. They’re 3D! My husband has fond memories of this cookie jar.



{hullo Scout!}
