Hello Pretty People! 
    I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas weekend and are now enjoying a restful week. I just wanted to pop in to point you to a new blog by the always lovely Liesl! It is called "Girl of Slender Means". A personal style blog that is already one of my favorites. I was so excited to see that she has featured an I Heart Roses Ring in a post. See! Aren't they beautiful photos? I wish I could have them for the shop! SO gorgeous.

Well hello my Pretties! We have a winner! The Random Number generator has chosen...

Who's favorite word is "sleep"

Mm! I love sleep too. :)

Thank you ALL for entering! It was so fun to read all of your favorite words and quotes. We have added quite a few words to our vocabulary because of you. For example: onomatopoeia, pamplemousse  and hyperbole. I realized that we didn't say what our favorite words are! Well, it was a pretty unfair question because really, WHO can pick just one? But a word I (Genevieve) like to use a lot is dynamics! As a piano teacher I say it quite a bit! You'll have to ask Marg and Aimee what their favorite words are. :) As for Shakespeare quotes... you can see a few on our side bar that we like ----->
Here are a few quote we use on a daily basis: 
"Oh ominous! He comes to kill my heart!" -As You Like It
"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?" -Romeo and Juliet

And thank you to all of you who are now following. I really really did not expect our followers to double! So, welcome to all of who are new and thank you to all of our loyal fans for sticking around. We are so grateful to you all that we are planning another giveaway exclusively for our followers sometime in early 2012 so keep your eyes peeled. 

We are not the most prolific of bloggers so we wont flood your readers or anything but we will post about special sales and giveaways periodically. We hope to start adding things like free patterns and tutorials this year, Lord willing, so keep your eyes open for those as well.

And if you can't get enough of us (ha ha!) we have a few other blogs as well if you'd care to mosey on over. 
Our craft and inspiration blog: The Three Spinsters
Our Book Blog: Jane and Elizabeth

Don't forget about the coupon code "SHAKESPEARE" for 20% off your order at Pretty Wit. It's good until December 31st. Any order made after December 19th will be shipped on January 5th. Sorry for any inconvenience! We want to enjoy Christmas with our family!

We hope you are having a very Pretty day!
♥Genevieve, Marguerite and Aimee

Hark! Is that a Wolly Pop I hear?

What merry notes on the chilly air are these? 'Tis the wooing of the gentlemanly owl to his lover November....

Hello there my wooly wolly witty friends! I have been busying myself with the creation of these little fellows again. Wolly Pops are invading once more! I've been experimenting with some different materials such as felted wool sweaters and socks and wool sport coats. 
It's been ever so enjoyable! I have also made several out of our tried and true felt.  

 I am going to be listing them in the shop soon. So stay cozy and keep your winking eyes open! 

p.s. The Wolly Pops are free shipping until Monday!

news, news, news

I know it's been quiet around here but we've been keeping quite busy. We have a new look now! Our sister and brother-in-law are quite wonderful graphic designers and have made this beautiful new logo for us! Isn't it eye catching and oh so drool worthy? I really love it.

Some new things have been afoot here at Pretty Wit! We are soon to be sponsors of Liesl Made- this beautiful and inspiring blog. Liesl also has a sweet Etsy shop by the same name. We may or may not be offering a special coupon code just for Liesl Made readers later in November... *hint* You should follow her blog. It's a really lovely and inspiring work of art.

We will also get to participate in the Fall Fashion Challenge over at Bramblewood Fashion! We will be doing a giveaway. What fun! Click on the above button to read all about it.

We also have a few new products in our shop. Such as this Genevieve Scarf knitted by moi on gigantic needles. People stare and sometimes even point and laugh when I knit these...but, it's worth it because it makes for a yummy, chunky and warm yet light scarf. I've been making a plethora of these in scrumptious autumn colors such as rust and taupe and harvest gold.

And here are few more objects for your notice:
New rings by Pretty Wit
 Birds Eye Earrings 
These come in other beautiful colors as well. Aimee has been making lots of these!

Well, that's enough of my ramblings! We hope you are having a splendid Fall so far! 
Have a Pretty day!

P.S. Oh my! This is our 100th post. I think this calls for something extra special... keep your eyes open!

Love ♥ Aimee

I know, I know... this is getting rediculous!

But, it's so awesome! a. e. wilder, another sweet person, made a lovely treasury featuring Pretty Wit! She featured my Maid Marian paper doll! Just look at it!

Isn't it the best? And she doesn't even know how much we like Robin Hood! I read two Robin Hood books this year and loved them. We watch the new show all the time. And my sister got the Robin Hood show (the one that ran from 1955 to 1960) for Christmas and we've been watching them non stop. They are a hoot!

And good news: You can be nerds like us and watch it! Here it is on IMDb. All four seasons! Watch it for free my friends! :)

Thank you so much to a. e. wilder for featuring my paper doll in her treasury! I love her shop! This is my favorite item. Isn't it gorgeous and genius too?

Hope you are having a pretty day!
