Almost there!

The Beast Pageant is 85% funded with only 11 days to go! So close! Here are some behind the scenes photos from production. The best way for the guys to reach their goal is by spreading the word- email to friends and fam :)

Summer Greenwich Scarf



A beautiful and bountiful Sunday with my sister and pals. We went to the farmer's market (onions, green and yellow beans, eggs, beets and carrots) and then off to Hurd Orchards to eat ourselves sick with berries. Every year I go a little overboard- picking pounds and pounds of black and raspberries, sour cherries and blueberries- enough for a year of jam, scones and smoothies.
Another summery scarf- mini stripes of yellow pima cotton and silk yarn with creme.

Genevieve Summer Scarf

Boy, it is hot. Pidge is semi-conscious next to me, lazily eating bits of sugar snap peas. I feel sorry for her- fur coat and all. Living in a third floor apartment with no air conditioning is brutal during the day- at least our bedroom gets surprisingly cool in the evenings, box fan a-blowing.
How can you think of wearing a summer scarf in such heat? I wouldn't recommend it outside right now.. unless you work in an air conditioned office all day or plan on getting some relief in a darkened theater tonight. A sweater is still unthinkable, but a light little something? Perfect- and stylish to boot!


coolest thing ever.

Orchid Summer Scarf

Vibrant stripes! lavender, periwinkle and forest green! like a vacation to Hawaii but in non-travelling scarf form... :)

Topper and Portland Scarf

I've never been to Portland but have wanted to visit since high school, when, in my government class, we watched a film about city beautification and urban landscaping. This scarf was inspired by daydreams of the city- streets smelling like fresh coffee (don't drink it but love the smell) , bakeries and produce, everything lush and misty.

Saw a great movie last night at the Dryden last night starring Cary Grant and Constance Bennett- Topper. Put it on your netflix queue whydontcha! In the Rochester area this summer? Every Wednesday the theater is showing Cary Grant comedies!

Tangerine Scarf

A bright summer scarf in bright citrus-y colors!

Handwoven Tokyo Scarf

I've never been to Toyko, but this color combo reminded me of bright night city lights and the bold contrasting fashions in Japan. Love it and almost want to keep it for myself :)

Hidden Scarf

Went through my inventory of scarves today and found this poor gal, while on the road with me to craft shows, never made it on the etsy shop!

Pile of Fun

A great jam packed weekend! Pile of Craft was a steamy success (despite the 90+ heat). I met lots of inspiring vendors, handed out business cards hot off the presses and had my first photo booth experience. Couldn't resist sharing these photos of Pippin, the quail, and Dr. Holly Pooper, the cute and patient little pup in Baltimore where we got to stay with friends and family.
