Hello Dear!

I’m Miss Robin, your hostess at Silk Purse and Sow’s Ear.  I started this blog as a way to document one of the things that makes me happiest: making something out of nothing…or close to nothing.

Why did you name your blog silk purse and sow’s ear?

It comes from the expression: “to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” which I interpret as making something terrible or something that would have been thrown away into something useful, beautiful, or fun.
