whale of a whale

I finally finished a whale. DSC00648

I'll probably list him today or tomorrow on etsy. he's made from recycled sweaters (a great & blue sewn together)
I wish I could find more argyle sweaters.
The back is a grey & blue toile DSC00650 with the standard embroidered heart DSC00649

Build a little birdhouse

I'm kind of obsessed with birdhouses. I partially blame seeing these from J Schatzprobably about a year ago and probably on Design*Sponge who always knows best about everything. Since then, I've tried to keep an eye out fo great 'houses on Etsy. THere was a seller who had some amazing work, but he flew (ha ha) to a store in Minneapolis and took his houses with him and sells them at "a store". If by some grace of god, anyone has any idea which store, please let me know. I still think about those houses which were kind of found-object-ish, amazing.
This Feeder is also out of my price range, but isn't it beautiful?
And of course Jonathan Adler has a ceramic version as well.
For the uber-modern Robin in your life, there's This house which is so great, I wish they made human sized versions.

More stuff I'm proud of...

4 years ago, my friends Sean and Rania tied the knot and they asked me to help with their flowers. I'm stealing this photo from Rania's facebook page, but this bouquet made of ranuculas, chinese lanterns and I think china berries (? I'm not so good with names of flowers) remains one of my favorite things I've ever done.
Not just because of how it turned out but who I did it for.
