ReStyle prints and new beanies!

Today is a day for getting everything done. I work full-time, I'm a single mother, and I have a long-distance boyfriend, so days to myself at home happen almost as often as solar eclipses. I'm happy to announce that the cosmos have agreed to give me a day off and I'm crossing things off my to do list.

I won some prints from ReStyleshop on etsy via elv's blog a while back and finally had the chance to stick them in frames and hang them on the wall.

I've been admiring Jan's prints for years (seriously!), so I was thrilled to be the winner of elv's giveaway.

I'm a big fan of Cathrineholm dishes and all things scandinavian. Now, if only someone can come over and make the rest of my house look perfectly mid-century modern.

What I wouldn't give for an actual Stig Lindberg cup full of tea. Sigh.

I bought the frames from Walmart for about $6 apiece. They're admittedly very cheap and flimsy but they do the trick as long as no one inspects them too closely!

New hats in the shop!

Since I was home alone during day light hours, I did a mini photo shoot with some new beanies. There's a black Abbotts Harbour slouch in the shop and a new colour block Abbotts Harbour slouch in grey and blue.

Both of these hats would look great on a man or a woman. I'm going to find it hard to part with the new colour block beanie! These are definitely my colours.

A new year

A new year, a new set of goals and expectations. I'm not one for making resolutions, but I do love flipping open the first crisp page of a new journal. This year I'm jumping on the bullet journal bandwagon. Nine days in, I'd say it's working for me. I always keep a notebook handy to jot down tasks, appointments, and assignments, but the bullet journal seems to be streamlining my notebook.

I was so busy filling orders in December. I feel as though I can finally breathe now that it's January. But I've been enjoying knitting to start filling the shop again with some lovely woollies. Here are a couple of new beanies ready to ship to you!

I'm sending you all warmth and best wishes for 2015. Happy new year!
