Old is better...

Hello Lovelies!

Well, things have been really busy here at The Stapelia Company. I was lucky enough to land a slot in the Weekend Deals feature in the Storque on Etsy and it kept me busy all weekend filling orders, which is great. I met a lot of great people who enjoy my work too which is gratifying. So thank you Etsy! 

And I have to give another thank you to Scoutie Girl a wonderful blog that I follow and love. I sponsored her blog this month and she did a little feature on The Stapelia Company which was very sweet. Thank you!



I have also been working on a design project on the side for a Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fundraiser. I donated my time and designed some invitations and inserts with a little original illustration up top. Take a gander, I think they came out great and it always feels good to help out this great cause.

    

I will be coming out with a couple of new art photos for you all this week, but since they're not ready yet, I put together this collage of vintage and vintage-inspire items for Covetables #4. (Am I the only one who can't believe we're up to 4 already? Time flies when you're window-shopping...) Stop by these shops if these products tantalize you kiddies:



And, did you read about the nude woman in Florida who was wandering around a mobile home park in the middle of the night and proceeded to knock on a stranger's door to ask for a cigarette? Really? I mean, really? I don't know about you, but when I'm nude in public my first thought isn't about getting a smoke, but that's just me. (And I don't smoke so maybe I'll never understand. Haha.) Whew, I'll tell you what folks, what would we do without this sort of entertainment?

Until next time: Unpleasant dreams.

Always enjoy your quirky little bedtime stories...my mind is coming up with lots of reasons for her wandering around naked knocking on doors and asking for a ciggie....but they're all a bit naughty! Well done with the storque thingie....anything that gets some sales is great....and the invitation looks lovely...tres classy!
