New Author: Say Hi To Sam

Thanks for checking out my first post on TeaForTammi. Tammi, the person who the Tea was initially brewed for, is going to be a very busy girl for the next few months and she’s been awesome enough to let me write on her beautiful blog.

Being Sick Sucks.

I think it’s a bit self-explanatory, no?

Here are my current amigurumi crushes, from all around the web! =)

The Beauty in Birdcages

I’ve recently been very inspired by all things ornate and flowery. Maybe it’s my late blooming entry into traditional feminity, or maybe these are just so gosh darned pretty. Either way, it’s resulted in an increasing obesession in birdcages.

It’s such a strange thing, because by definition, birdcages were meant to restrain, to trap, and yet they hold so much beauty – both in their designs, and the birds that they hold.
