The other side of the kitchen and more

Excuse the poor quality photos, but it is really hard to get enough light to get a crisp photo in the kitchen! I decided to make an 'art wall' of sorts on the other side of the kitchen (in case you missed it, the counter/sink side of the kitchen is here).

I thought it would be nice to include some embroidery hoops with my favorite vintage feedsacks. I'm about to run out of this particular one (an all-time fave!) and now I've saved a little piece for myself:

It's the same fabric used in this cuff. I will be sooooo sad when this feedsack is gone!

See the "everything is going to be ok" print below? Click to zoom:

I got it from pleasebestill (Jen is the sweetest seller ever, by the way). It is such a wonderful sentiment and makes me happy every time I walk by it. Because you know what? Everything IS going to be ok.

I also got this absolutely adorable hand-carved stamp in the mail today:

I'm going to use it on the outside of my packaging. Isn't it just the sweetest feather? I got it at HandmadeBlayne. Oh, it looks like she's on vacation right now! Make sure to mark her shop for later to see her sweet collection of stamps. :)

P.S. You only have about a day and a half left to enter this sweet giveaway! Go do it!
