I've included a closeup on the vintage Welsh pincushion, one of Jessica's new lotion bars (availble soon on her etsy) and this pretty bar of lush jasmine soap.
Afterwards, I came home and started making some earrings and cleaning up my work table. Been at it for hours but you really can't tell LOL. I realized this week, my ID expired and I need to go get a new one. Sadly you can't seem to make an apt at the SF DMV so I'm debating going over there tomorrow or Tuesday. I think maybe Monday might be a bad day to go over, since everyone may want to go on Monday and get it out of the way.
Rob and I did some cleaning yesterday and I filled up 4 bags for Goodwill. Why do I hang on to thick, chunky turtleneck sweaters??? Its not like I go snowboarding or ever visit anywhere that gets that cold. Off they all went, with the vintage stuff that hasn't sold since we moved in and a ton of fabric,patterns and yarn. Feels good to get rid of stuff I'm never ever gonna wear, use or even want.
I also put up a post over at Objects and Elements blog on my Tattered Garden Rings, go have a look here.
