I love the end of summer

The smell of guavas, and summer end of season sales. For the first time in a long while I feel like my old self. With all the things that happened this past two years, and with the weight I gained till lately, I forgot how wonderful it feels to wear beautiful cloths.

I bought these amazing pants at the end of summer sale at Alambika. 30% off, still expensive, but they are just perfect. They are just the right length, look perfect with sandals and a tank top with a a big necklace. And I already plan to narrow the waist when I lose more weight.

The purple blouse is from Zara, and is so cool! It sit very loosely on the body, and has this wonderful pompom, flowers and wood built in necklace. Blouse and accessory in one! I bumped into Flora the fashion journalist yesterday while wearing it, and she thought I made the necklace, which is always a good sign.

And this amazing oh so orange dress from Tovale's was half price. It looks like a nurse outfit gone mad, and fits my very pale skin. It is just the right length, looks wonderful from behind and has beautiful sequin details.There is no way I will not get noticed in this dress.

I have to say "yay" for Naama (the designer). Her last two collections were simply terrible. Old and boring. Nothing like her older inspired work. This year, it seems she made a huge improvement. You can see how I love her designs, I am wearing her on my blog picture! Ah, that is the cutest shirt in that picture. I hope I will lose enough weight to wear it soon. Here is a wonderful picture from 3 years ago with me wearing all Tovale's.

Many people asked how my photos improved so much. That is because Nick is helping me shoot (when he is not in kindergarten that is). In this picture you can see him holding my backgrounds for me.

I listed a lot of new items recently, including some early Christmas puppets. I had to make them early so I can start work on my Christmas cards in time (wait till you see those!).

Here are Santa and Twinkle Flutterbutt playing on set

Starting to work on the holiday stock

This weekend I started building a stock for the holiday season. It seems autumn, however hard to believe with all this heat, is getting near and with it - lots of sales.

If you want to help me name her, or would like to buy or reserve her, please let me know. I am not planning to list her for a few more weeks. She turned out real cute!

I decided to go on an Etsy forum diet for a while. I had enough of promoting in vain. True, I love my forum buddies, but we will keep in touch in convos and mails for a while. The shop still runs as usual though, and my summer sale is still on till September 12th.
