As the weekend of shopping madness continues, just a few BirdieHandmade updates:

We are having a WEEKEND SALE in the Etsy store this weekend in honor of Black Friday and Cyber Monday - all items are 25% off until Tuesday. This includes custom orders, so maybe this is the chance you've been waiting for?

In other news, we have been featured in two Etsy treasuries this weekend. Please visit them and visit some of the other amazing artists and artisans featured!

AND if you are in Burlington, Vermont this weekend, stop
by City Hall Auditorium for the final day of the Women's Festival of Crafts to see some wonderful work by some amazing Vermont Women!

Be sure to check out the fabric necklaces of good friend Kacey at the SubSixStudios booth!

Happy Thanksgiving

It was a wonderful mild day here in Rupert for Thanksgiving. Our turkey from neighbors Someday Farm in Dorset was delicious. The Profts are telling the truth when they say that their free range birds are the best in Vermont, and maybe even the country. Even my harshest critic (my 8 year old son) came back for seconds.

After a walk up through the woods, we all came home to relax and wind down for the weekend. For the kids, it's friends a plenty come visiting. For me, it's up to Weston tomorrow morning for the Christmas Bazaar. I was there yesterday setting up, and I must say, it is going to be a really great show. If you are anywhere in the area, do not miss it! The show runs from 9 to 4 and is right on the town green in the beautiful Weston Playhouse. You can't miss it - it's right on Route 100.

For now, I must be off. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Dolls! Dolls! Dolls!

Bambola is Italian for doll - these are some of the one of a kind rag dolls that I have been making in the studio - each one made from unbleached muslin with recycled cashmere hair. Traditionally given as a token of love, the bambola is intended to last for a lifetime, and to be passed down from generation to generation. I am now accepting a limited number of custom orders for the holidays.

Linen Dresses are Now In the Shop!

Yeah! I have just added the first installment of my new linen series for girls ages 6 months to 6 years to the Etsy shop. I've been working on them for quite a while, so this is a monumental day of sorts for me. There will be more to come, but I just had to share some of what I've been doing holed up in the studio all fall!

Check out some of the out takes from the photo shoot with Ms. Sunshine - oh, are we in trouble!
