Watch the birdie!

Sometimes it’s good to have the decision taken out of your hands – I saw this on Stephanie Congdon-Barnes’ blog and thought "Instant love!! Miss Ida Morgan – look at her lacy chest! Swoon!"  Upon checking Stephanie’s shop, Miss Ida was of course, sold.   So I’ll just have to enjoy the pics on Stephanie’s blog:


I was very taken with Leo J. Adams as well, particularly his spotted necktie.

Also pleased to read in this post the following quote:

I receive a lot of emails asking if it’s okay to make things inspired by my collections as gifts or for their own homes. Yes! Yes, it is okay! Go for it! Cover rocks. Make toadstools. Fashion twigs. I think it’s great. … I would, one day, like to share a few patterns for the simpler things that I make, but pattern-duplicating is not nearly as exciting to me as actual creating, and so it continually gets put on the back-burner.

Talk about inspiration, yay!
