This is what knits are all about – warmth, beauty, togetherness! Benj Haisch’s images of Kyra + Donny are blowing me away right now. Well done. Thank you for the inspiration in all things love & yarn!

Good morning! We had such a beautiful Fall day yesterday, it would’ve been the perfect day to take pictures or go on a photo walk! We just launched a section in our Etsy store called “Seasonal” where we’re placing all kinds of cozy pretties like scarves, wraps, and cowls. More to come!
Well it appears that to be successful in the online market, you have to be out there in many store fronts. Ladylike will be expanding into a few more markets in the future. We have recently applied to ArtFire for an exhibit page and @wrecklessgirl is working on that from Oslo. She’s such a hard working partner in our little business. Without her, our Etsy ad ArtFire pages would be blank with no pictures. She’s an awesome photographer.
You can find us on ArtFire at http://www.artfire.com/users/LadyLike. It will take a bit of time to get the items on their blog. We will not be leaving Etsy anytime soon. Love their online market.
I cannot believe what happened to Sept. 2010. This summer has steam-rolled by and the weather has been less than desirable. The whole summer was cooler than normal, rainy, and not very good for gardens. I was fortunate to get a good crop of tomatoes for canning (3 times already) but was hoping for a few more opportunities. Fingers crossed with the warmer weather this week.
My current read is “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton and it’s a wonderful novel filled with intrigue and suspense. I would highly recommend it as a book club choice which is actually my choice for November. Our book club for 10 years has chosen some incredible reads in all genres. If anyone’s interested in our lists, I would gladly send them along to you.
Have been working on a few new crafts…beautiful lady’s scarf pattern and matching hat in ivory white. The yarn and pattern remind me of new fallen fluffy snow. Also knitted up a cranberry red cowl which turned out better than expected. Pictures will be up on the blog soon. I’m continuing to work on my LadyLike feather and thread hair clip designs. You can view them at at my etsy page: www.etsy.com/shop/ladyknitster.
Daughter Kristy’s new blog page with senior photo sessions can be viewed now at www.wrecklessgirl.com. Some stunning beauties grace the pages. Enjoy!
This 1st Friday in September was an exciting and memorable one indeed. Wreckless Photography and House of James had Open House to their newly renovated photography studio. With the renovations came the burst of natural light into the space that is almost heavenly. The transformation has been spectacular to watch. A beautiful display of images could be seen throughout the Studio.
Another highlight of the evening was the display of our local artisan and teacher, Julie Rae Bickle. Her work could be viewed in every room of the Del*light Creative Space and Julie was on hand to discuss her pieces with the guests. Three musicians from Grants Pass provided the entertainment and Ashleigh Powley of Troon Vineyard provided the guests with a sampling of their wine.
I was fortunate to have my newly created Lady Like hair clip designs on display and for sale. Sales were brisk and special orders were taken that evening. I would like to thank Heather Smith for the opportunity to have the clips on sale at her salon in Del*light and to daughter Kristy of Wreckless for the encouragement to step out and try something new. It was wonderful seeing old friends and meeting new ones too. Grants Pass is a small community with a big heart and 1st Fridays each month is a great place to reconnect with friends. I’m glad I was able to be a part of this event for the first time in 30 years in Grants Pass. Hope to see you next month at Del*light Creative Space on the corner of 5th and G St.
About a year ago, I signed up for an etsy account, intent on selling my sweaters, gloves, and other knitted creations. I ended up giving everything I made away as gifts. My account remained lifeless while I dreamed up craft creations and chatted with my daughter about them. She was always asking me to make crocheted/knitted flowers to wear as clips in her hair, so I finally succumbed to her demands and created a few. She’d been playing with feathers, using them in things she made for clients in her photoshoots, so she dreamed up the combination of crocheted flowers with feather tails. When she arrived back home from Italy, we immediately got to work on this idea we’d had for a long time, slowly building up our inventory. This weekend, I launched my company, Lady Like on etsy. I sell pretty handmade hair accessories for women. I’ve just added an etsy widget to the sidebar of this blog, so a small portion of each current collection will be displayed and linked here! Please venture over to my esty page and enjoy the collection! Thanks!
