Maybe Matilda: October 2012

Instanonsense

One of life’s great questions: What should I blog about?

Answer: Hows about reposting pictures from one social media outlet to another?

I could make some excuse about being busy and all, but the truth is, I just haven’t had much to show off or say on the ol’ blog here. So enjoy (or not) some recent Instagram goodies (you can find me @maybematilda).

internetaddict

The internet addiction starts young. And this tiny web addict is not always pleased with his findings.

instacrochet

I’ve been crocheting a lot lately . . . I know you’re shocked, stay with me. See, it’s this hobby I have, I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it? Anyway, I came up with a new cowl design for fall (pattern available here, two ready to ship here and here, and custom versions here!), and of course, my headwraps are always fun to whip up. I’m really enjoying all the lush autumn colors my customers have been choosing lately for their items!

instashopping

I contemplated more of mortality’s biggest questions, such as Should I Buy These Fake Glasses? (I didn’t) and Should I Buy These Awesome Shoes? (I did!)

instakitchen

I added a spunky turquoise mirror to my kitchen (an old, gold hand-me-down that got a spray paint and stain makeover); needless to say, this little one didn’t offer his assistance. I am still overwhelmed by my love for that chandelier from Barn Light Electric. I want to smooch it.

instahats

And finally, a new winter hat for Forrest (this one) received a mixed review. Fortunately, it also fits me, because his mega-sized 2-year old head is in like the 200th percentile. But since he seems to have decided after a few days of intense deliberation that he likes it after all, I guess I’ll have to make myself a matching one. Matching mother-son bear hats are socially acceptable, right? Because I smell an adult bear hat option/pattern coming to an Etsy shop near you after having unexpectedly fallen in love with wearing this. I’m probably way too old and boring for this but the heart wants what the heart wants, and this heart wants its own bear hat.
