I think every table needs a tablecloth. It’s like a party dress! It can immediately perk up a room, make it seem neater, and allow you to have fun with collectibles you have around the house.
Today I brought out my #vintage#fisherprice#sewingmachine , my #holidayfair#elephant#piggybank , and the #DIY mini #bulletplanter I made from a plastic Easter egg a couple of years back.
Do you find yourself gravitating towards certain colors at thrift stores without realizing it? I do. I think this picture proves it. Now on to other decorating!
Hooray for colors!
This year has definitely been unpredictable to say the least, but we are happy to report we have a #fall and #holidayfair schedule in place! We can’t wait to see our makers and shoppers in person again soon.
Applications are open now for #jackalopepasadena at: www.jackalopeartfair.com/applypasadena

On this day; I want to write and elaborate on something I have recently read & remember my TEDx talk I have presented when I was 17, talking about women’s rights in Turkey. I am deeply passionate about women empowerment, and not just women but human empowerment. Philosophers (usually male ones) have in the past claimed that men and women have different ethics, and “inferior” ethics. Carol Gilligan was one of the first women to suggest that men and women approach ethics differently, she is also the first to suggest that the ethics of women is not inferior to that of men. She argued against Kohlberg’s (sexist and small minded) views that women developed less morally because their attachments and loyalties, to their family and friends. Gilligan argued that women’s morality is mostly a matter of caring and being responsible for others with whom they are involved in personal and loving relationships. She argued that women develop by showing increasing maturity in the way they deal with relationships. Women move through three levels of development; (1) a stage in which they are overly devoted to caring for themselves (2) a stage in which they are overly devoted to caring for others, (3) a stage in which they achieve a balance between caring for self and caring for others. When faced with moral decisions, women focus on the relationships of the people involved and see morality as a matter of taking care of the people in these loving relationships. When men face moral decisions, they focus on individuals involved and see morality as a matter of following the moral rules or principles. Gilligan argued that women’s ethics are not inferior because caring and responsibility for sustaining relationships are virtues society greatly needs. Society, she suggests, tends to disconnect people and promote competition, individualism, separation, and independence. A male emphasis on impersonal rules and principles further encourages these tendencies. We need the virtues of caring and responsibility for others to ensure that society does not become a collection of isolated individuals who guard their individual rights and justice but (more in the comments)

There will be other craft things going on and lots of holiday spirit, so you can feel creative and productive and festive all at once while supporting local artists! 🎄
