Squareup Store Is Updating!

Hello Lovelies:

In this crazy downtime, I am creating a ton of new items. I sorted through tons supplies.

I’m updating all my Steampunk stuff from The Countess, crafts, vintage items, dog art from the Haute Hen, and moving them onto my Squareup store. The link is here:

https://haute-hen-countess.square.site/

You can also DM me at ANY time on social media links or here on my blog about any items I post even if they aren’t on the website yet! I take PayPal and Square.

Right now, I can’t do international shipping, but hope to when this catastrophe is over, to continue that again. If you are local to the St. Louis area, pick up is available.

Some new items I just finished!

Thank you for your support! And as always, thank you for reading.

-Victoria

Jane Austen Tea

Hello Lovelies:

With all this time off, as I’ve written before, I’m catching up on past videos and projects.

For Valentine’s Day, I was treated to a great tea at the London Tea Room by my friend Wendy. It was tied into a promo for the latest version of the movie Emma.

Another friend, Lisa, gave me a dress that I altered into an over dress for the event.

The video of the creation process and tea here:

I hope you enjoy it! Again I have free meditation and yoga classes on my YouTube channel and more wonderful things coming as I hunker down in isolation.

Be safe, be well, and as always, thank you for reading!

More Updates, FREE Classes, and A Year Ago

Hello Lovelies:

During this time of basically not leaving the house due to COVID-19, I’m finally catching up on editing some past videos while practicing good sanitary procedures.

A year ago, this month, I moved into the new Casa De Countess and I can’t be more pleased to say that I’ll be here another year. I’m going through and sharing new pieces on my YouTube channel while hunkering down.

And to help with everyone’s mental state, I’m doing FREE yoga and meditation classes on my channel, the first one here:

I Cut My Hair, Mardi Gras and Other Things..

Hello Lovelies:

I’ve been so busy, as usual. And historically, this day is a busy one artistically. A brief look back at today’s memories (February 18) showed a dog art opening, prepping for Steampunk art opening, and promoting a gallery opening. Creation continues today, I’m working on a costume for a Jane Austen tea this weekend, and I’ve started rehabbing the dress.

Changes continue as well. When I went to the Pet Parade in the historic Soulard Market with some family and friends (more on that below), we stopped at a local watering hole. I was ready to further unwind, took off my favorite hat, and unfurled my unruly tresses.

My hair was a matted, curly mess, even with a ton of tea tree oil. I had already noticed my hair is thinning (hello, menopause) and I was going to cut it soon. Long hair actually pulls more on the scalp, so shorter I go until I figure out what meds or lasers, etc., I might do. I already got thickening hair fiber powder. I was totally ready to cut.

I actually had to resist cutting it when I got back home from the parade, because well, I’d been drinking. I did a careful detangling instead.

The next morning, I took a good hard look in the mirror, did a little planning and parting. Within five minutes, I had a new cut.

Fun and choppy.

So here’s a vlog on the process. Enjoy my lack of vanity, lol. https://youtu.be/jrtpEemk6OE

Back to Mardi Gras…

The Pet Parade is always amazing! Lots of entertainment, dogs, and other pets strutting their stuff!

My “niece” dog, Luna

I wrote up some fun pieces for the Journal last week; you can read about them here:

COMING SOON! New shops!

National Pizza Day and Author Life

Hello Lovelies!

As usual, there’s just so much going on! I’ll have some great stuff from Friday’s Steampunk 5 opening coming soon. But, for this blog, I’m featuring lots of splendid things I’m catching up on.

Today is National Pizza Day! I just enjoyed some Imo’s Pizza, a local favorite here. Pizza is so popular in St. Louis, that it made the cover of St. Louis Magazine.

And by wonderful coincidence, the feature on the caretakers of the Campbell House Museum (including myself!) is in the same edition. Read all about it in St. Louis Magazine here:

https://www.stlmag.com/history/campbell-house-museum-weekend-manager/

It was two years ago from February 6th, that I first walked through the doors of this magnificent institution. This last year has been magnificent and I am grateful to be part of such a great Museum:

Two years ago, in the front hall of the magnificent Campbell House Museum.

And to celebrate a bit more, “A Dream of Emerald Skies” is FREE on 2/23/2020. A little more here about all of the above on YouTube:

Author Life Month continues! So for the following days:

Day 3. Last five star read-The Hunger Games, I couldn’t put the whole series down.

Day 4. My current WIP-a gothic horror piece. That’s all I can say.

Day 5. Comp cover: one of the considered photos for “A Dream of Emerald Skies”

Still a good pic!

Day 6. Fan art/edit: I really don’t have any of these but I love fan art of Tom Hiddleston’s. And today being his birthday, I’ll share this one from the talented Nicana Micael Artworks:

Day 7. Writing Music-I listen to a LOT of trumpeter Chris Botti.

Day 8. Awesome Moment-getting on St. Louis Magazine’s A-List last year. Unbelievable. And I’m incredibly grateful.

Day 9. Challenge overcome-getting reviews! “A Dream of Emerald Skies” is my first book to get over five reviews. I’m truly grateful for them. Even the bad one, lol.

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria
