I had this post all ready yesterday, but then I read the news and suddenly didn’t feel like posting anymore. Though I still feel heavy hearted today, I think it’s a good time to spread a little kindness, however small. It brings Jeff and I so much joy to offer giveaways here, picking something special that will go to one of you wonderful readers out there.
I did a shop update on Sunday with new buttons and shawl pins. The pictures above show just a few of the new items listed. It always feels good to be freshening up the shop with new things. There are some fun buttons that Jeff created while he played with some wood dye for the first time, creating a darker border around them. (We only had a few sets left after our show.) All the buttons we’ve offered in the past were the natural color of the wood (we’re often asked that) and all of them still are except for those few new ones he’s made with the dyed borders. I listed a variety of shawl pins in different woods- Oregon madrone, reclaimed mahogany, black walnut and more- and one shawl pin in elk antler. And now to the giveaway…
Jeff and I picked out this beautiful shawl pin, handmade with love, in Oregon myrtlewood to give to one of you. Jeff sands and polishes the wood so smooth, it feels wonderful. This would look lovely on a special shawl. (The main part of the shawl pin measures between 2.25 and 2.5 inches wide and the shawl pin stick is 4 inches long.)
