I had never been a fan of this store. In fact, it would be fair to say that I mocked it. Repeatedly.
However, I recently put together an online order with a friend of mine. We had talked each other into buying things, mostly we were both dead poor and in need of some new clothes.
The box arrived and when Keiko and I opened it we were hit with a musty smell. Hrm. It wasn’t proving me wrong so far. But I pulled out (and aired) all the clothes and then started trying on. Everything we had selected had been cotton, simple and cute. And everything I tried on was great! Sure, the quality was lame, but the styles, fit and fabrics weren’t half bad. Fair to say, I was impressed.
Now I am attempting to not allow myself to be a regular Forever21 shopper. I know the old Kate would have laughed at me, curled up her nose at my denim jumper and flat out snarled at the cute little panties I ordered. But new Kate can’t stop making online shopping lists and then deleting them.
Here are some things I can’t seem to shake wanting:

TO BUY OR BROWSE, CHECK OUT OUR STORE, HERE!
All of the above are also be available in gold vermeil.
We know that times are tough out there! So we’ve made a nice little Recession Special section in our store to keep you all in pretty golden jewelries. Everyone needs something shiny when the days are dull.
Lovingly made in New York City!
We only make things we’d love to wear ourselves, so if you like sailboats, cupcakes, puppies, cowboys and robots, you’ll probably find something perfect here.
All of our charms are 14k or 18k gold plated, hung on gold filled chain or 18k vermeil chain. Our packaging is as adorable as our jewelry! So if it’s for a gift, please let us know and we’ll include a personal note.
And introducing our 2009 Sterling Silver collection! All pieces in this collection are sterling silver, hung from 18″ sterling silver chains and set with natural stones.

Keiko and I have been enjoying our pet squirrels whilst Matt has been away. Hours of entertainment! They are so tame!
We sat on the window ledge and Keiko chirped at Syral (the squirrel) and I hand stitched oilcloth.

So, I have gone ahead and created a little Etsy store of my very own. I will be using it to sell little bits and pieces that I make, in the hope that it will a) make me a little bit of spare cash, b) inspire me to make many more things.
The first things listed include:
And Circus Bag!
Flynn and I have been toying over the idea of creating an Etsy for baked goods and candies! It would solve the problem of making things and then eating them and getting fat. Hehe.

My new sewing machine has me in making-stuff overload…and I’m not complaining about that. Here’s a quick pic’ of Keiko’s new splash mat for her messy eating and drinking! (it’s double sided with pastel flowers blue on the back…eeeeee!) Even her stuff matches!
Also a new little mouse pad, with a puffed heart to rest your wrist on!
