Finally Back

Hello everyone! I feel like I've been away for ages!! I mean, I never technically went anywhere, but I've had to severely limit my computer time lately which has meant no blogs, no blogging, no youtube, and almost no pinterest. I am so glad to be back!!

More on that in a minute, but first: today's outfit. While we have finally had a bit of autumn weather, today's has been a last glimpse of summer. It seemed like my last chance for straw hats for a while, so I donned this adorable vintage chapeaux. I paired it with this lightweight "dress" (it's technically an old skirt I cut armholes into), homemade belt, and Buster Keaton necklace. 

(Necklace close-up, since it's hard to make out Buster in the other pictures)

The reason for my absence from the ol' interwebs? I hurt my right hand. 

I managed to lie on it funny while sleeping, and strained a tendon in my hand. It's been almost 2 months of curtailed activity now and it's just starting to get back to normal. I still need to be careful, but at least I can do a little bit.

As I've been unable to do much of anything lately, I haven't much to report for the last 2 months. My Halloween collection for my Etsy shop has only just launched. It was supposed to be up in August, but had to be delayed for obvious reasons. Anyways, if anyone is still looking for a Halloween costume, Halloween themed garments, or wants to get a jump start on next year, I've listed several new items. It's not the extensive collection I had planned, but *sigh* maybe next year. 

The only other project of interest was these fox gloves I made for Britt's birthday last week. They fought me every inch of the way, but I'm pleased with how they turned out in the end. 

I hope everyone has been doing well lately. I will be trying to catch up on my blog reading over the next week or two, but there is a lot to catch up on! If my hand continues to improve, I will hopefully get back to Youtube as well. Video editing takes a lot of computer work though, and my poor lil' hand just can't quite handle that yet.

That's All.


  1. Sorry about your hand. I love your buster necklace. I have a bday tribute to him on my blog today

  2. Oh no, you poor dear. I'm very sorry that you've been battling a hand injury for the past couple of months. I can just imagine how frustrating and painful that must have been for you. Are things starting to improve a bit for you now? I really hope so and will be sending huge healing wishes your way all month long.

    xoxo ♥ Jessica

    1. Thanks so much! It's finally starting to improve, which is a big relief. I use my hands constantly for work and almost every hobby I have, so having my dominant hand totally out of commission was really frustrating (and reeeeaaalllyyy boring). After over month of just watching tv shows and doing jigsaw puzzles (which I can do left-handed apparently), it's great to be able to get back to doing things again! :)

  3. I've just seen this - I hope your hand is recovering well now. It must be so frustrating having a hand out of action.

    1. Yes, it is thankfully on the slow road to recovery :)
