Organic Cotton

Did you hear about the CPSIA situation? No toys with lead (DUH!) are allowed to be sold. Testing was going to be required. Then there was a stay of execution. And natural materials are exempt.


I've always used all natural materials in my Woolies. But now even more so - and luckily, the natural fibers are becoming more readily available (although still kinda pricey).

So, with a new design and organic cottons - check out Beatrice!

She's available in my Woolies shop. I hope she finds somebody to love her!

Tree Branch Button Earrings

My friend Jenn from The Button Shop makes the most wonderful hand carved buttons from tree branches - you have to see ~~~~~

They come in all shapes and sizes, and she uses all different kinds of wood - cedar, maple, oak, willow. I have a bunch of them. So I was looking for something else yesterday, and I found two almost perfectly matching cedar ones. I thought, wow, because I am so obsessed lately with making jewelry, I'll bet these would make cool earrings.


Voila! Tree Branch Button earrings!!! I hope somebody falls in love with them. They're for sale at Buster and boo - stop on by!
