Some of the raw artwork for Lily of the Valley’s next print featuring mushrooms. Plus a hastily done mock-up of the planned jsk.
All of the artwork is completed, I just need to re-scan a few of the fungi that ended up too light. Other then that I’m just waiting on my pms color chart to show up so that I can make sure to make the background the right shade of cream.
The jsk will have a brown cotton sateen bodice with pintucks, a brown velvet shoulder straps with small bows, a brown velvet bow belt. Skirt is made of the mushroom fabric printed on chiffon. Repeating stripes of mushrooms will be separated by calligraphy of the fungi’s latin and common names.
I’m planning on trimming the jsk with brown cotton lace, cream dot tulle, and cream venise lace.
The bird’s nest print will be delayed until early spring. Seems more fitting.
Ann Arbor, Michigan-based artist Susan McLeary creates exquisite pieces of one-of-a-kind living jewelry using small succulent plants mounted on bronze bases. Each piece can be worn for 3-4 weeks, after which the plants may be gently removed from their bases and planted in a pot or garden.

MEXICANS OF AFRICAN DESCENT ESTABLISHED LOS ANGELES ON THIS DAY IN 1781
The Los Angeles Pobladores, or “townspeople,” were a group of 44 settlers and four soldiers from Mexico who established the famed city on this day in 1781 in what is now California. The settlers came from various Spanish castes, with over half of the group being of African descent.

How it works: Volunteers can message Cool Chicks from History for the name of a woman to draw. Posts will go up in November for Native American Heritage Month with credit to the artist and links to their tumblr, deviant art, etc. Cool Chicks from History will write the text for the post. Because the last round had a low completion rate, strong preference will be given to those who have previously participated so if you’re volunteered in the past, please mention who you drew. If you are Native American, please mention the tribe and Cool Chicks from History will try to match you with a woman from your tribe (if you’re into that kind of thing). Usually there are more volunteers than names to give out, so message Cool Chicks from History asap if you’re interested.
