Well she's not so little anymore...it's only been about two months since I introduced little Razzy & now she's a 10 pound force to be reckoned with, the complete opposite of our little Olive but an absolute joy. Razzy keeps us on our toes & makes us laugh daily. She also likes to chew holes in all our blankets, steal all of Olive's toys & then give everyone lots of pug kisses.
& in case you're wondering, getting a 4 month old puppy to stay still during a photoshoot...not so easy
Sweet Olive loves having another pug in the house. They spend half the day playing tag & the other half snuggling & napping together.
I find this form of street art so intriguing & beautiful. I love that they have coined the term yarn bombing or yarn storming to describe it...it makes me want to pull on a ski mask, some combat boots & hit the streets with my bag of yarn to do some serious knit tagging. Because what's tougher than making the urban landscape around you beautiful...I can think of nothing.
For more inspiration & information on yarn bombing, check out the blog Yarn Bombing, written by two of the main players in the movement - Mandy Moore & Leanne Prain. They also put out a book last year, no doubts it is going on my list of must-haves!
If anyone in the Atlanta area wants to team up & do a little yarn storming let me know! ;) Happy weekend! ♥
I adore Valentine's Day & always have, it is one of my favs! I loved making valentines to hand out to all my classmates when I was in school...it usually involved getting to make a special valentines mailbox for our desk as well. I can't think of anything more exciting!

love them all!! I'm happy it's Friday, we are going to venture out tonight after being iced in all week to get some dinner (& probably some frozen yogurt if I have my way)! Looking forward to being a part of society again.
I need to do a little update on our little Razzle, she's no longer a little 3.3 lb. bundle, she's a 8.6 lb. ball of energy. I will share some updated photos of her & her bff Olive soon! Happy weekend! ♥
Atlanta is having an "official" snow day today, our roads are all iced over & un-drivable. One of the many things I love about living in the south; our world shuts down when we get a few inches of snow!
We have been making good use of being shut-in, drinking lots of hot cocoa, snugglin' with the pups, watching movies, lots of knitting & getting inspired by this handmade portrait...
I handmade one thousand five hundred & eighty two hats & scarves, with my own two hands...that's such a beautiful thing - yokoo Pin It
Hello 2011, it's a pleasure to meet you! This year will be fantastic, I just know it! I re-opened my little shop this week after what felt like a long & much needed holiday vacation! It feels nice to get back into the swing of things. To help jumpstart the year off right, my little shop is sponsoring one of my favorite, favorite inspirational blogs, Today's Letters, for the month of January! Please go check out their awesome list of sponsors, there may or may not but probably most definitely be discounts involved! Cheers!
