..."Tuesday Im in Love ..."

I just finished the sweetest little shoes in a moss green. My daughter says they remind her of Peter Pan and I think she is right. I am starting work on some shoes inspired by the night sky.

One of the exciting things that happened today was I found myself in a treasury. not bad for a shop that has not even been open a week. I was super happy, and very humbled that cbpoole (pls click her name to go to her etsy shop) was kind enough to include me!

I think all the items she chose were adorable, and I am in very good company. This is my first treasury for The Naked Mushroom, and I can't wait to make treasuries myself to include some of the fantastic folk I have met this week.

Another interesting thing was, I made it on to the twitter page called, Ugly Sh*t on Etsy. The Denim corset my husband made was featured, but only for a brief while, till the person behind the twitter account took it down. It didn't bother me one bit, mainly because I know our work at The Naked Mushroom is of high quality and craftsmanship, but also because I know it isn't ugly.
Sure, its not my most favourite piece he has ever made, I much prefer the corduroy corset, but still, its well constructed and looks FAb with a pair of jeans!

I also can't believe how ugly some etsy folk were to others in the thread, it amazed me, and made me feel quite sad. There is enough ugliness in the world without folk going out of their way to be mean just to get their jollies.

I am so happy to hear from you! I was wondering how you were over the summer and then you disappeared for a while. I was scared that you left etsy.

My boyfriend and I have decided it was such fun making our Terrariums that we are starting an etsy joint venture. It will be called Gnome Homes. I am super excited and it will be nice to do something not in fabric for a while. I think we both needed a new etsy start in a way :)

Well i am so happy your still around, a girl still needs her BEFF!
