Look at this crazy collection of Dina Varano rings. Love them all. Just can't make it into downtown Chester to purchase one of these lovely rings? There is still time to purchase online.

Dot Sells Out at Scope Art Fair

I am so excited Dot is included in with a long list of other emerging fashion designer items in the Smashing Darling Pop Up Boutique at Scope Art Fair in Miami. Today I found out Dot was a favorite it and has already sold out in Miami. I love the idea of wearers of Dot running all around the globe. Take a peak at the other designers included in the pop up shop. Even if you aren't in Miami, you can still shop the designers. The lovely bonus of the internet.

It's Dec. 3rd and 65 Degrees

One day soon I will be able to wear my newest arrival.

My lovely new felted scarf has arrived.

By Designer Sarah Brundage
Thistle Down Wool Design

This is my second annual felted scarf from Sarah.

... and anyone who knows me, knows I am always wearing a scarf during cooler weather.
I love the color and texture it adds to whatever I am wearing.

This particular scarf will be just what is needed on a blustery, sub zero day. It is so thick and yummy. Ain't no wind getting through this puppy.

Sarah is an amazing designer. Visit her blog to keep up with life on her farm.
