show posters

May 20, 2009

Three of the four experts are going to see the Decemberists play tonight at the newly-restored and reopened, historic Fox Theater in Oakland. Since I’m a big fan of silkscreen, gig posters and the Decemberists, here is a collection of some of their beautiful show posters.

feeling felty

May 20, 2009

I am fantastically fond of felt. Needle felting, pressed-fiber felt, felt in all forms. It’s fuzzy and comforting, yet substantial and strong. Here are a few fabulous felty finds from Etsy.

April 21, 2009

Everyone seems to be mad for plaid these days. I’m a sucker for intersecting stripes, so please enjoy just a few finds from Etsy. If you do, I’ll be ever so glad.

Deer, oh dear.

March 23, 2009

Like many others, I am completely enamored of woodland creatures. While lots of critters hold a place in my heart, deer are among the most beloved. Since countless etsians share my love of deer, I thought I would share a few of my favorites.
