The Sweetest!: Adorable Crochet Work from The Legendary Skunk

Just under the wire for Valentine’s (reminder, ladies and gents, you can be lovey-dovey on many other days of the year besides February 14!), I received an email featuring all these great crochet pieces from Ashley Price (Etsy store: Legendary Skunk found HERE.)

I am coveting this So So Sweet crocheted heart necklace (only $15!) to wear all year-round  How cute would this accessory be to a lose tank top this summer or flowy dress this spring?  It’s quirky and romantic, just the way I like the keep things.

And last, but certainly not least, the adorable crocheted mushroom.  Ashley explained she created this as part of the “application” to a job she’s trying to land.  Tell the hiring team to come at me for a hearty reference — I’ll vouch for your great style and craftiness.  And I’m a blogger….we know stuff.  ;)

As I said, feel free to view more of Ashley’s work on ETSY, or fan her on FACEBOOK.  I only expect to see her DIY/Crafty entrepreneurship continue to develop and become a major success.  Keep going!

Vintage Gloves Round-Up


I came across this photo of my friend Ginger Kessinger the other day and couldn’t help but ask to use it on this blog!  Isn’t this a precious picture?  I *think* she is the little girl wearing gloves and she mentioned in some comments how much the accessory is missing in today’s fashion.  Boy, do I agree!  I’m hoping gloves make a comeback, along with everything else vintage.

I did some e-shopping today and came up with a round-up of some PRETTY sweet vintage gloves.  Why buy new when you can avoid it?   I’ve bought gloves at a few different yard sales over the year, too — keep your eyes peeled at sales and auctions especially if you have tiny wrists and hands.  Vintage is small — so small people do often rule in this circumstance.

Everyday Use:Gloves with Gold Chain: $11.99

Red.  Cute little chain detail.  Fuzzy warm lining.  Perfect for the t-shirt, jeans, and jacket type outfit.

Wedding Guest Dress-Up: Crochet Victorian Gloves : $89.99

Delicate.  One-of-a-kind.  I imagine: yellow dress, navy blue summer jacket, white gloves and accessories.

Early 1900s.  Undeniably wonderful embroidery.  Match any outfit.  Will generate compliments.

Dress Up : Sparkly Glove : $50.00

Beautiful.  Elegant.  Vintage.  Perfect for the pretentious parties.

Rock Show : Leather Motorcycle Gloves : $45.00

Cannot go wrong with these.  Cannot. Go. Wrong.  Sweet girl, but she’s a little rough around the edges.
