Are you Etsy?


First of all, I listed a new Reindeer Feltidermy yesterday…

After doing that, I was so excited to go into a local holiday show and find a room full of Etsians! It is so surreal to meet people, that you talk to everyday online, in real life. I was so overwhelmed with the kindness of all and the beautiful wares!

I purchased the most beautiful pair of fingerless gloves from amuse! I am so in love with these gloves, if you can be in love with gloves…Well, I am anyway. Alpaca wool gorgeousness!


Right next to them was the rockin’ sweet lowleepop. We found the perfect bib for a friends baby that will be arriving in the next few months. How cute is this for a baby boy of a mom who loves to rock it out now and then?


Being a soap addict, I couldn’t resist finally making a purchase from Morgan Street ! Pecan pie gift soaps and a lily of the valley. The pecan pie soaps will be included in Christmas gifts, but I think I have to keep the lily of the valley for myself. It is my favorite flower!


I just don’t have enough time today to talk about all of the wonderful Etsians that I met. I will have to save the other half for tomorrow…

I do want to finish today with go monkey designs who had organized the show. She is so sweet and her wares are too wonderful! From wallets and wristlets to clothing, everything is so great! I especially love the little unisex french pants! So cute!


Enjoy the rest of your weekend! And remember, if you see a holiday show going on it your area..It just may be a room full of Etsy artists!

I’m stuffed!


I’m happy to say that my turkey was wonderful! I worry every year, the whole time the bird is roasting, that it may not be good. This was my largest bird to roast yet, with this years being a 13 pounder. It roasted up nicely, was tender, juicy and delish! I have to disagree with anyone who says organic turkeys are not as good as the ones that have been injected with chemicals and added flavors. It was a nice day, we were joined by my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. We ate and ate and ate and ate and then we ate some more! We finished off the day by watching Funny Farm and Christmas Vacation for a Chevy Chase mini marathon.

In girlsavage news, I’m so excited to be featured on the PlushYou blog today! Such an honor for me, I read it daily and am always so inspired by it. Thank you plushyou and Shmancy toys!


I added a new feltidermy to my shop today. I will be working on more to add by Monday.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

The Last Pecans in Town?

O.k. what recipe did Paula Dean put out with pecans that everyone wants to make for Thanksgiving? I ended up at 2 grocery stores, where at the last one I had to scape through the bulk bin, to find my pecans. I know I missed some new special recipe, because I don’t remember there ever being a pecan shortage before…Wait, is there some weather problem that caused a shortage? I thought there was going to be a problem getting cranberries after seeing a news report so I bought those last week. I wish I had bought extra pecans last week…

Be sure to stop by my shop tomorrow, Wed. 11-21-07, for new feltidermy! The rest from the shop are on thoer way to new homes or heading off tomorrow. I’ll have photos of the new ones tomorrow!

Busy Monday after a Lazy Sunday


Well, first of all today…Sonny Squirrel is on the front page of Etsy this morning! That is certainly an exciting start to a Monday morning. There are 2 Jackalope Feltidermy in the works right now, a new “life size” piece and another custom. The Mounted Buck Feltidermy has been purchased and will be heading off to Australia tomorrow. Wow, all of that going on before 9:00 am!

Yesterday our Sunday was such a nice and lazy day. We really only left the house to walk Bean down to the park. The Mr. made a huge pot of vegetarian chili in the crock pot, he makes the best chili! The rest of the day I stitched and he painted while Bean and the 2 cats slept near heaters. Ahhh, it was a nice day….

I must be off to work on feltidermy, clean up the house a bit and start my Thanksgiving menu. Oh, for Cathy (Scrap4U)… We really just eat and spend time with friends and family on Thanksgiving, no gift giving for another month. Thank goodness for that! heehee!

Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!

After much time spent here at girlsavage getting ready for the holidays, we decided to have some fun with it yesterday. Some of the animals decided to get in on the fun of picking out a Christmas tree. Enjoy and then come visit us!

37 Shopping Days Until Christmas?!

Yikes! I’ve been so busy stocking up my little shop that I have almost forgotten to start my shopping! I have started buying a few small items, sorry can’t show you yet. I don’t want to spoil any Christmas day surprises!

Jackalopes 5 and 6 feltidermy are on their way to their new homes! I’m always so happy to send my creations off to a new home. To know that they will be loved by someone else is a wonderful feeling!

I have some exciting news today! I have been accepted to the 3rd Ward Holiday Sale in Brooklyn on December 8, 2007! Whoo hoo, my first real show! If you’re in the area that day, please stop by and say hi. With only 3 weeks to prepare, I’m going to be one very busy little Savage.

With only a little over a month until Christmas and less than a week until Thanksgiving it is easy to remember that winter is heading our way. However , when we had a few snow flurries yesterday it did come as a shock! Snow! It has been predicted for today here in the Hudson Valley. I’m so glad I stocked up on hot cocoa before this weekend. I also made some chocolate chip cookies yesterday, yum!

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! I’m off to work on a new large Jackalope Feltidermy!
