I would just like to say that this is the greatest idea ever.

If you’re the kind of person who loves wrapping wedding and birthday presents, or sells wonderful handmade things for a living, or just likes a little bit of fancy in your life, you have to go for this tape!

It’s also available in white, if sexy black lace isn’t your thing.

Check it out, along with other amazing products and gifts, at MATTER.

Here’s the roundup of beautiful, fabulous, gorgeous things for the week!

I’ve been pining after this shawl by Las Lopez Las. A shop run by three sisters in Argentina, they have some very interesting takes on textile arts, and the kind of scarves you would love to wear but just didn’t know that they existed until now. I’ve been wanting to buy something, but I haven’t been able to narrow it down to just one thing yet.

Every Jot and Tittle is probably my new favorite shop on Etsy. It’s shops like this that make me wish that I was a scrapbooker, just so I would have a reason to buy some of her products. I might have to pick up scrapbooking, just so I can binge and buy everything in sight.

I secretly harbor a desire to spin my own yarn, however in the meantime I’ll have to settle for the gorgeous fibers over at Loop. She always has some great yarns, as well as the raw material for those with the luck and the patience to be able to spin themselves.

For a musician, there has to be nothing better than a really well made, special guitar. I’m betting that the folks over at West Corinth Studio understand this, which is why they’ve built this beautiful guitar. Entirely handmade, utilizing refurbished and locally grown woods, you get something that is stunning as well as environmentally sensible! For those of us not musically inclined, they have other wonderful wood products as well.

If you have any favorites that you’d like to recommend, please let me know! I’m always excited to find new and fabulous things, but I don’t always have the time to go out and search for them.
