Snow Globes in June


Should the Man of Steel be encased in a plastic vitamin bottle and then showered with glitter? He seems so helpless.

After a very long quiet spell, I'm resurfacing to share a few irresistible things. The first, of course are the snow globes we made today. This was entirely the inspiration of my nearly six-year old. The Indian warrior and Superman figurines look really dazzling inside their new homes.

Another recent creative surge led me to a thrilling shopping visit to Purl Soho for fabric and the results are making me very happy. Check out the before and after:



The happiness is mingled with anxiety, as these chairs often snuggle up to the naked butt of a potty-training two year old. They are coated with three layers of scotch gard. Also, when the little guy is eating at the table, he gets to sit on this oilcloth-covered chair (as in: Guess what?! You are the luckiest member of the WHOLE family! You get to sit on the shiny, flowered chair!):


The knitting is constant lately. I can't mention all of it here, but here's a little something I've been adoring between big projects:



Bombyx Silk from La Lana. Dyed with lavender flowers.

More soon. I promise!

I was drooling over some sale fabric at Purl Soho the other day but I resisted the urge. I love your purchase!
 
You're back, you're back, you're back!!!

Your groupies are stumbling out of our sad, lost, state of darkness to the light of the kazoo!!

I'm making snow globes tomorrow!!!

The Man of Steel never looked finer than with glittering shoulders.
 
Yahoo!!! she's back. I love the projects. I want to know the specifics of the snow globes. That sounds like such a great project.
 
yay!!! I've missed your blog miss M! Love your chairs! Can't wait for more..
