...BEACH BRICKS!!



In keeping with our 'To-Do-Before-COLD-Weather' List, we have been in the Garage, using The Drill!
My latest obsession... BEACH BRICKS!!


The recent onslaught of Japanese Lanterns in the garden...and the harvest of, ...and the trimming of, ...and the sorting of, ...and the photographing of, ...and, ...and, ..and!
Has inspired me for a new Fall 2015 line...

I'm sure EVERY.ONE. of you know how once you get started on something, it is hard to stop...
The 'svelteSTUFF studio' is NO exception!!

Jack-o-Lanterns!
 cats!
 spiders!
 abstract pumpkins!
ghosts!
...OH! SO! FUN!

Yes, there are still a few designs rambling around in our heads... 
J: "How about moons?"


and Other designs need some 'tweaking' and 'reworking'...
So I foresee more additions to our 'NorthShore Fall2015' collection in the near future!!


THANK GOODNESS for this heat-spell that we are in right.now., so that I don't feel guilty being indoors, doing silly things like threading beads and naming pumpkins!! (We are open to ANY ideas!!)

'WILHEMINA' here got her name, as she kind of reminds me as much of a Whale (Free Willie), as she does an abstract-squashed-gord!!  BUT, she 'needed' a female version...



Yes, it's true.
I'm easily amused.
BUT
It's all good right?!
