A Peek into my Work Space

Everyone is always interested in where people work. So, today I thought I would post a couple pics of where I do all of this computer fun stuff from.

I know, not real exciting, huh? But, that little green chair is where I am sitting right now writing this. It is where I do all my photo editing, listings for my shop, and hanging out on Twitter. What I am excited about today, is that I finally got my “Etsy art wall” hung. I hope to add more to it as I collect more art from my favorites on Etsy!

Bunny Rabbit 48 Feltidermy, Large by me!

I plan to rotate feltidermy on the wall, just so I can enjoy them a little before they go off to their new homes. One day I hope to fill that whole wall with Etsy art!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your little peek into my workspace. I hope you all have a great weekend!

P.Nut’s First Adventure!

Friday afternoon when P.Nut and Chippy Prototype heard we were going to Ribfest, they decided it would be great for her first outing.

ready

P.Nut ran and snuggled into my purse and said she was ready for action!

While waiting on the platform, she got very excited for her first ‘L’ ride!

P.Nut thought it was pretty neat that she was the only squirrel on the ‘L’.

beer

The festival was very crowded and everyone was drinking beer. P.Nut was glad that we thought to bring a bottle of water.

grill

Watching all of the ribs getting grilled was fun! P.Nut didn’t eat any of them, she is a vegetarian, but she thought the cheese fries were great!

bands

She really enjoyed seeing a couple bands that she has listened to in the office at home. The Harlem Shakes were fun, but she liked Office the best!

After all of that, it was time to head back home. She couldn’t wait to tell Chippy all about it. P.Nut had so much excitement that she fell asleep on the way home. Telling her adventure would have to wait until morning.

morningAfter

Saturday morning when I got up, I found her in the dining room with Chippy Prototype and Iris. She was having so much fun telling them all about her evening out.

P.Nut can hardly wait for her next adventure! She read something about
Andersonville Midsommarfest in one of the papers, that might be fun…

The new Little Squirrel has a Name!

The new little squirrel has had quite a week. First of all we decided that she is definitely a girl, she’s just too cute not to be! She has had lots of meetings with Chippy about what being the squirrel  about town will involve. She has also spent time meeting all the other plush and feltidermy.

wFeltidermy

Here she is with the newest feltidermy,  the Medium Eight Point Buck Feltidermy.

We would all like to thank everyone for  submitting their ideas for her name! There was one that stood out to us as soon as we saw it. Thank you to Jessica of  PlushroomSoup, she gave the suggestion of the name P.Nut and is our winner! The name P.Nut really couldn’t be more fitting for this little squirrel!

Thanks again and please stop by tomorrow to see P.Nut’s first adventure to Chicago Ribfest!

Name Chippy Protype’s new Assistant and Win!

chippyWNewSquirrel2Recently Chippy decided to go into semi-retirement. He will keep up his Twitter page and probably have more time for it once his retirement starts. You see he was made as a prototype out of acrylic felt over 2 years ago and has been on many adventures, including a trip to Las Vegas, since then. All of the traveling in purses, carry-ons and pockets has taken it’s toll on poor Chippy.

So today we are introducing his new little assistant! From now on this little squirrel will be going out as the squirrel about town for girlsavage and this blog. This little one is smaller and stitched entirely out of wool. We do need help from you, you see the little squirrel doesn’t even have a name yet. We thought it would be fun to let you all pick the new name!

petalPocketMirror

Please leave your suggestion for a name in the comments. The person who submits the name that we pick will win a Petal Bunny pocket mirror, like the one shown above. The name will be chosen and winner announced this Saturday !

Chippy and the new little one would like to thank you in advance for your help!

chippyWNewSquirrelThank you!
