The Best Things In Life Are Free

A little shameless promo...because it's Friday, and because it's an amazingly beautiful Friday, all shipping on all items purchased through the Woodwings shop on Etsy is FREE.

What a perfect time to stock up for birthdays, valentines day, to start a little collection, to get those bulky items. Any old reason at all. This is the day to do it. Until midnite tonight.


I'm Not Ready To Say Goodbye

The crickets, cicadas, frogs that sing me to sleep at night. I'm going to miss you. Stay for as long as you can okay....I'll keep the window open at night.


Finding a field of fireflies that balanced on the tips of grass blades and hovered there like magic, I won't forget that moment.


Peace, quiet, and the gentle air that teases the candles flame. Dang, I'm not ready to say goodbye.

Oh To Be 4 Again

These inspired lovelies are all created by Teeny Tini. Crocheted by hand and in yarns that are gentle beside babies peachy softy skin. 

Now... why can't the tou-tou come in my size.

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?                                                                                  ~High Fidelity

Soft green meadows covered in clover.  Cool, pillowy pure sand at the temperate beach. Lake Michigan is like bath water after a long, hot summer. I'm ready for a soak in peppermint scented water, how about you


Balkan Beat Box

I just heard the most remarkable music. It's a melange of cultures. As aromatic as it is energetic. I wanted to share it here knowing that most of you prefer a gentler sound, but, I feel transported listening to them. After hearing a short interview on the radio with one of it's founders I see that they also have a spirit and sense of humor I am drawn to.
