I'm Baaaaack!

I apologize for being MIA for almost the whole month of March, but I swear I haven't been laying around eating chocolates(does anyone REALLY do that?). My 90 year old Grandma fell in the beginning of March and broke her arm, so I have been taking care of her during the day, & that takes up alot of time and energy. Then the rest of my days are spent doing house chores like dishes, dusting, laundry, and it seems like I am forever vacuuming up cat hair, sounds like an exciting life eh? Not only have I been busy/tired, but the Winter of 2011 has decided to hang on for dear life into late March, and it's starting to look like it might even be around for April! Argh! It's been so dreary, cloudy, damp and icky here in NE, it even snowed this weekend :( Family stress and crappy weather aside I feel like I have some free time coming to me and I'm gearing up for some Spring and Summer DIYish things.

I don't have a craft, recipe or other helpful info to post today, I would however like to share something with you that I discovered about a week ago that I am in love with. I came across an Etsy store called Fable and Fury, and they make the neatest laser cut stainless steel necklaces and earrings, very artistic! My favorite are the little deer earrings posted below.

So cute!

This store has something for everyone, including silhouettes of the likes of David Bowie, Vincent Price, Johnny Cash, and H.P Lovecraft, and animals like owls, cats, and Jackalope-(yes, a Jackalope is an animal)-just to name a few designs. Love Edgar Allen Poe? How about wearing him around your neck? Nevermore wear a boring necklace....

The Octopus Girl below looks like something from a Victorian horror novel, so naturally I love it! :) Seriously, go check Fable and Fury out, you won't be disappointed with what you find.

Ahoy Mateys!
