Shoe Clips

I finished these last night! I'm very happy with them except for the hardware. They're a bit difficult to open and close, but we're trying to remedy that. Good thing is that they won't come off your shoe! I bought a smaller version of them and I'm testing them next.

I'll most likely sell these as 'samples'.

Cat in the Hat

Michael made this for Renata, who is catering a birthday party tomorrow. The cake will be the hat. I love this so much! I can't freehand for shit any more.

My mother gets a lot of catalogs. A lot. I would say that we like 90%, so that's not too bad. She's ordered some stuff from Monticello in the past.

I was flipping through her latest edition when I found this to stir my acorn love...

Then I found these cuties that I want to share...

Double Dating

Two pair of Hooded Merganser ducks have landed in the pond. I don't know if they're just passing through or if they're hanging for a bit. I'm trying to remember if we had them last year, but it was so chaotic during the move and colder months here.

I can't get a good photo of them right now, but here is a photo of the male that I pulled from good 'ole Google.

I am going to miss the amazing wildlife around this place when we move soon.
