These Are a Few of My Favorite Things...

This stunning necklace by the lovely Katelyn of Peace, Love and Leener. She has been on a real creative streak these days creating all sorts of lovely necklaces, like this fabric leaf one:
Speaking of necklaces I am super excited about this necklace I recently bought from Violet Bella, another FAB blogger/crafty chica I would highly reccomend! The sewing sheers I currently use were my grandmothers, I remember her teaching me how to cut fabric as a little girl with those scissors, the sound of the blades slicing through fabric as she taught me to sew....this necklace reminds me of those special memories.
As far as news in my crafty lil world, I am currently working on a line of eco-felt dolls! Cute rag tag, floppy limbed teddy bears in patchwork dresses! Here is hoping I can pull it off...I am working on one now and her name is Mable! Here is a weeee sneak peak:
This one is just a prototype that I am practicing on...I will be working on a slightly plumper body with a bean bag bum for the official launch! I loved the dangly arms, I can just picture my lil bug all sleepy and ready for bed with this teddy hanging from her hand. Mable was my grandmothers name and I am thinking each doll will have a cool retro "gramma name" like pearl, rose, daisy etc...

What are some of your current favorite things?
