Almost everything is a design I thought up myself. Sometimes I decide to make something really unique that isn't anywhere else...like cashmere bloomers!…

I mostly make these things...clothes, jewelry, muffins, mitts, bloomers, dresses, art and craft...but I will never knit anything.



Did you know that the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote, was finally ratified by Tennessee on August 18, 1920? This gave it the amendment the two-thirds majority of states necessary for ratification. It became the law of the land. This amendment took more than 70 years of struggle! It reads: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex" and "Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

The American woman suffrage movement began in the mid 19th century by women who had become politically active through their work in the abolitionist and temperance movements. 200 women suffragists, organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, met in Seneca Falls, New York, In July 1848.
The assembly approved measures asserting the right of women to educational and employment opportunities. They passed a declaration: "it is the duty of the women of this country to secure to themselves their sacred right to the elective franchise."
Of course the Seneca Falls Convention was abused by public scrutiny, suffered public ridicule, and then, because of that, many people who wanted equal rights, withdrew their public support of the concept. Seneca Falls marked the beginning of the woman suffrage movement in America.

I might have another shop, pepperandwalnuts, and AsheParker.
