vintage poppies

okay, poppies make me happy. i think they’re beautiful. and their paper thin petals and bold colors get me every time. i mean, the orange… i’m obsessed.  i love, love, love our beautiful, happy poppies. they also make me crazy. as I was writing you, i saw this squirrel jump out of a tree and start attacking our poppies :: so naturally i jumped up and ran outside throwing rocks & screaming. don’t worry. i scared the squirrel off long before any rock from my accurate hand came close. instead i freaked out five cars at our round about that pulled up just in time for hurtling rocks and my screams. what am i thinking? i’m crazy, and there’s no real good way to pretend you were just enjoying the day, so i just stood there awkwardly after that.

well, inspired by the bed of poppies that are blooming under this beautiful tree, here’s the latest and greatest in what my mind has to offer these days. vintage handmade poppies are becoming a part of my jane line.  i love it! they’re really fun and i’ve loved making them. can I say that? just don’t read into the poppy thing too much…they don’t look exactly like poppies per se…but you should love them! you really should. and you might even need a few. i hope you enjoy them and enjoy the rest of this beautiful day.
