Wait, Where's the Wagon?
That's right. Who's got two thumbs and fell off the wagon (the wagon that is the daily pre-Valentine's Day posting)? This gal. It's with good reason, of course. I've been a busy little bee the past few days-part having fun and part stepping it up. Hit Le Garage Sale up on Saturday with the roomie, and we both snagged some fabulous finds. I picked up a white billowy tank dress with fringe detail and a pewter-colored suede bolero jacket from The Dress Shop, which I encourage you to check out if you haven't stopped by yet. I've also been putting time back into guitar- put in some practice and jam time on Sunday and then went to open mic night at Trophy's on Tuesday. I also finally got around to making those feather fascinators that I keep gabbing about; pictures will come as soon as Austin decides to not be a wannabe Seattle.
To kick things off, the featured Valentine's Day goodie of the day comes from another Etsy Austinite, Tracy Owens Chasteen of Polished Two. The Lovebirds Earrings (shown above) are the perfect gift for your bff or even to yourself- won't break the bank and it's the classy non-cheesy/non-romantic version of Valentine's. To me, they're part rockabilly part Americana classic tattoo art, which y'all know I'm a huge fan of. And, Like Tracy points out, if you want to ease up on the Valentine's aspect for year-round wear, you can take the heart off and sport the sparrows solo. Like what you see? Search 'valentine' in Tracy's shop to find more pieces to keep you looking good for Valentine's Day. For year round feathery friends jewelry, search 'sparrow'.
Looking for something to do this weekend? Check out The WonderCraft's Anti Valentines and Valentines Making Class. You'll walk away from the class with not only the knowledge and tools to make rubber stamps, embroider, and craft envelopes but also a valentine for that special someone (or that not so special someone). The price of the class is $36 + $18 for supplies, and there are still a few spots left. So, if you're free on Saturday from 1-4pm, you should hit up The WonderCraft for some crafty fun...and then send me a valentine when you're done. ;) More news and fun to come later, boys and girls!
Action Jackson out.
