Delivery date for Miss T's winter collection of 65 pieces is set to happen the 24th of November. In my attempt to save myself from testing all the paints and beads for lead on all my ready made flowers from China, i created a collection that i could count on being pure by making my own flowers and/or using vintage laces. This winter collection feels wholesome and warm to me as a result and i am hoping everyone feels the same : ) i have lots of wooly sweaters and the Salvation Army to thank for my supplies this season. And thank you to all the talented unknown people that crocheted the vintage handmade laces that i used to try to convey the delicate filagree that winter does so well.

Posting more pictures of Salaam in full dress, including his book and a friendship bracelet my son made for him out of glow in the dark thread he got for his birthday.
My son recieved many a glorious gift for his birthday, including "3 Cups of Tea" (young readers addition) from my sister (a truly magical creature). The introduction of 3 Cups of Tea begins....."as-salam alaykum"
What? could this be?
A huge birthday coincidence. My sis lives in Seattle and had no knowledge of my doll making/naming adventure. Still pondering this phenomenon. Big goose bumps on the connectedness of things.

i must give another plug to sweatered soap mentioned in previous posts. Last week was week 4 and still no mildew or smell there of on my sweatered soap. After being gone from it on vacation for 2 weeks it melted into a goo and absorbed into the sweater envelope, which after one week home was forever sudsy. A miraculous curious phenomenon. It is not much to look at now though so i am posting and unused version of sweatered soap.

Returning home to handmade lotions and soaps feels like luxury. I love my softly scented world at home. My trip abroad was very scented (perfumes, diesel emissions, cigarettes, hand sanitizers and quite often sewer). Home has such a sensory quiet. I love home.
