i'd like to title this post 'sunny saturday' but alas it is not. i only hope that it doesn't rain (much. yet.) so that you can check out my new treats for you!
i have more softheads by Ferdinand. a softhead is a handmade stuffed animal head. who needs the body when the cute part is the facial expression? you'll just have to see these in person. they are near the Ferdinand baby tees and onesies, the first of the new baby products at the shop. they're printed on organic cotton and i have two designs, one involving a musical squirrel.
there is also a new line of candles called Beccalights. kristen was gracious enough to let me be the first store to carry her line! they come in little metal tins and i have eight scents, from sugary Caramel to fresh, clean Cotton. and i have the famous Baked Bread scent. yes, it really does smell like that and no, i don't know how.
this of course derails the conversation to when i used to be a Web monkey and worked at a startup that wanted to let you "smell" webpages. no kidding! they had a little box filled with oils that got mixed and blown at you by a little fan, you plugged this into your computer and when you hit a page with, say, a pizza ad, you smelled pizza. kooky.
finally, miss sue of Giant Dwarf has sent a box of treats - sweet cloches and calf cozies - or legwarmers to you oldsters. they are made of recycled sweaters and you just wouldn't have guessed unless i told you. oops, the secret is out.
