A Temporary Downsize (also entitled, I Haven't Lived in an Apartment Since the Reagon Era...help!)

We accidentally sold our house really fast (who knew?) forcing us to move 4 cars, two college students, one teenager, and a dog, from three thousand square feet into a 1500 sq ft apartment for 4 months. But strangely enough, it's been a fun summer! Being a compulsive organizer with an online business, the real challenge was finding space for my vintage STUFF, while keeping our smaller living space uncluttered. So, my work just became the decor, featured here.

Vintage Birdsong

The birds have returned to our trees this week, so here's an "ode" to one of the great bird men: John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American artist, well known for his beautiful drawings and paintings of birds, mammals, plants, and other subjects from nature. Shown here are some of his original works from a 1937 book, and cards crafted from those pages which were damaged, perfect for birthdays, Mother's and Father's Day. Celebrate the coming of Spring!

After all the bold reds of Christmas and Valentine's Day, I'm ready for soft, neutral color, or lack thereof! Here's some new stuff from the shop along those lines.
