i made this pretty bath mat out of stephen's old towel and part of an old bedspread, and posted about the process on the newnew's blog.

a few days later, it was picked up by whip up and craftzine!

so something good finally came out of that ratty old towel....

perhaps you've noticed that lovely banner up at the top of my blog lately, but haven't had a minute to click on it and see what it's all about? well, i'll make it easy for you:

this saturday, september 13th, i'm going up to beacon, ny, to throw a one-day craft fair with a bunch of other crafty ladies from my etsy team, the {newnew}. it's called the handmade cavalcade, and it will be a great collection hip handmade goodies, from jewlery to journals, from soap to ceramics, from knitting to napkins.

we will set up shop at the corner of main street and north cedar, just a short walk up from beacon's metro-north station.

if you're in the city, beacon is a great town for a day trip—not only is it in the beautiful hudson valley, but it's got a ton of galleries and cute shops, and is home to the very impressive dia:beacon museum.

hope to see you there...

*p.s. marichelle just gave us a shout-out on her weekly bulletin board over at her lovely site, heart handmade.

cary of little love blue was sweet enough to include tina in her weekly "saturday shopping list", along with a bunch of other pretty things from members of the {newnew}.

cary makes wonderful felt art, like this absurdly adorable mushroom

and this black kitty, who i have coveted for quite some time now....

though i love my old iron, which has been with me for almost two decades, i have been searching for a non-steam iron, which was proving really hard to find. apparently it's all about steam these days. but not back when this beauty was made:

i found it at the salvation army when i was doing a supply run the other day, and i am smitten.
