Happy Lovey Feet

cozy.toes

I ordered these beautiful silk/wool handknit cozies from the gorgeous knitabella collection last week as a Valentines gift from me to me. It was 7 degrees on the day I ordered them. I was cold. I needed love. My feet needed a hug.

On Valentine's Day when I got them it was a sultry 60 degrees. It was an indulgent purchase. Once Jeff offered his gifts of love- a singing box of chocolates, a giant plastic diamond solitaire ring, and a Spongebob Valentine- my own purchase felt like a really good idea.

Look. Its my feet as a heart.

But this gorgeousness has had me very busy. Its my soon to be (additional) studio space, which is above my current studio space. That is indeed a large gaping whole in my brick wall. I am so excited I could spit. It puts the plastic ring into perspective, no? Would you like to watch the progress of this space with me? Guts and all? Good. Cause I wanna share it.

xo, Anna

    yay! I wanna see the space come to life. I would love to have a well-lit, it's ok to get messy studio of my very own. I got three Reece's PB cups in a plastic cup for V's Day. Maybe next year I'll buy myself something. :)

  39. Lovely socks. I was pretty darned happy that I made a shockingly large fabric purchase online the morning of the 14th. Even more so when husband arrived home empty handed!

    We have dreams of attic development, so keep the photos coming (and make sure no one steps through your current studio ceiling!).

    Oh, yes! Finished attics ARE the nicest, warmest, quietest escape from the familia below...that is how we roll around here, too! I wanna know just how BIG the incoming lightsource is allowed to be, cuz that always MAKES a studio: natural, GOD-made light for proper color fabric experiments! --- Trenna
