photos from a grey weekend (and what's new in the shop!)

i've been collecting these frames and bird prints for awhile now. finally hung them up in the bedroom.

one of my [fake] crows lost a feather...it was too pretty to throw away so i stuck it in one of my old windows.

i've been having lots of fun with vintage dictionary pages! these particular ones are from a 1944 Websters (don't worry, i let other Etsyians do the dismantlement!). just love how they look in these old convex glass frames. (p.s. i didn't want it to look too even, but looking at this photo, it's bugging me a bit...may have to rearrange...)

more vintage dictionary love! remember the necklace i mentioned a couple of posts back? after seeing this fabulous idea from the talented BrianneLee, i got inspired. so i slipped a small piece of a dictionary page over the dried flowers. i thought the antlers would be good for Fall. i am really pleased with how it turned out!

pumpkin scone and English breakfast tea (in my new double walled glass mug that I won in a giveaway from Michelle of StoryBookCharm! go check her out- she has a lovely blog and Etsy shop!)



and now just a few favorites in my shop right now...

brass stag

another alarm clock

I really like the necklace! I did something similar with an old locket that I have.
