A pocketful of posies

Just look at these cute little pups. So adorable.

I would like to share with you, my internet buddies, a new find. Posie gets cozy is a new favorite crafty site. I just love, love, love it.

Everything over there is unique and feminine. Lots of floral, vintage, antique-y type stuff. She takes things from the Goodwill and turns them into really cool stuff. I don't think she is selling them anymore, but she had some bags made from striped sweaters that were super cute.

The blog always has tons of photos. Alicia's house looks like a place to stop and have a cup of tea with a friend. So homey and warm. When at the blog, click on the posie button to see the website. Alicia will be updating it this Monday with lots of new stuff to buy. If you have any Christmas money to spend, this would be a great place to visit. So much more satisfying than going to the mall.

I am always so impressed with people in the cottage arts industry. They get to make stuff all day, they never seem to run out of ideas, and every idea is more clever than the one before. When I find a site that doesn't look like the same old bazaar stuff that I've seen for the last 20 years, I know I've found a true artist. I'm sure it gets old or boring sometimes, but I still think it's a great business.

Go visit Posie and her rosy little things and see if you aren't charmed.
