Home again....

 We got home late Saturday night from a wonderful trip to Calistoga and Napa Valley. I got right to work the next day on this funny little owl.
While I was up in No. California I visited "Muse" a sweet yarn shop in St. Helena where I've sold some of my things for a few years. I managed to take some photos to show you what a great place it is....


 A wonderful scarf that Michele made...makes me want to start knitting again.

 Loved these felt blossom  pins...
 These are vintage pin cushion ladies for sale...

 Anthony Parisi  makes the great ceramic buttons in the shop. He was making a delivery while I was there bringing in a few new pieces too.



I certainly don't need any more ornaments but, how could I resist the little gnome and mushroom person, especially at half price! I found these at Mr. Moon's in Calistoga, another of my favorite stores.

So much inspiration here. Love the vintage lady pin cushions and all the sweet finds. Ceramic buttons are the best, especially hand made. Thank you for sharing

Ohh too bad I live in North Carolina - that is truly a shop for me. By the way - I just picked up Sew Somerset the other day and there you were. Love the little houses!
