There will be more cake.
There will be more…but first
a few littles new in the shop.
I sewed a couple vintage religious medals
(amulets) with linen thread to
comfy newish stretchy bracelets.
They are feminine.
They create a reminder to pray,
to hope, to get over ourselves.
Also, wouldn’t they be perfect
for a bride?
I learned I am not a natural at sewing,
but I wanted to take a small risk
and join the old with the new
for a blended creation.
I know I’ll get better.
Inspired by some of my old chaplet bracelets
I don’t wear for style, but to which I
occasionally cling when grieving
or considering a serious matter.
These are that sort of bracelet.
Not necessarily for blinging.
But for clinging.
Th piece above is a necklace and is old through and through.
A vintage amulet joined with an old aurora borealis necklace.
This rosary in the shop is probably circa 1980’s,
and I can’t seem to collect enough of
these to drape over a candlestick,
a lamp…it’s endless really.

Would love to have you visit over there.
