These salt shakers came from the flea market this weekend. I usually manage to make it out without buying anything, but these were calling to me. So cute and woodsy.
The neighbors have some beautiful, giant, succulents in their yards. I had to take the picture and get out before they thought I was strange.
The absolutely adorable, thoughtful tag that came on my little pouch from Made By Hank. I love tough ruffles. I actually can’t say how much I love this little purse, it’s that great. From opening the package to deciding what to do with it (I still haven’t decided).
It’s kind of depressing, all of the palm trees everywhere. They’re beautiful, but they make you think you’re in the tropics and on vacation but wait…there’s no beach. I guess a kiddie pool in the yard will have to do for now.
A strange picture of a new kind of knitting I’m working on. This one’s a purse. Thinking about listing it. Thoughts?

I know that everyone may well be sick of seeing so many stags around, but I still haven’t gotten over it yet. They’re so charming! And foresty! Living in the desert right now, I’m yearning for a bit of old world forest.A lovely new take on the stag theme is these sewn felt creatures from forestcreature. Available in different sizes, shapes and colors, these adorable felt creatures would look good on a mantelpiece with some interesting candlesticks, or perhaps on a bedside table keeping your pile of books comfortable.

It’s that time of the week again! I’m pretty sure that I waste WAY too much time every week looking at all of the fabulous things there are to find on Etsy, and I can at least make myself feel a little better about spending all of that time if I can share my favorites here!
First off is Stacey Winters. Her photography is fun, playful and colorful, and involves lots of cute kitschy little creatures, and tons of different little deer! She has a great aesthetic and tons of different cards so you’re sure to find something that will fit your stationary needs.
Then we have Carnival. I bought some of her stuff earlier this year, caramel nut crammers, or something like that. Let me tell you, that was some of the best sweet stuff I’ve ever had! I don’t like chocolate much so it’s hard for me to find sweets that I will eat, but these were great. She’s got stuff for just about every taste, fast shipping, and generous portions.
I can’t say enough good things about chewingthecud. The shop has a great aesthetic (and a gorgeous banner) and all sorts of paper goodies. Would be good for the hipster or the minimalist in your life!
Last we have Swallowfield. She has some outstanding artwork. It’s truly rare to find such a talent, let alone have the opportunity to own such amazing work for such a fair price. She’s had tons of sales so far, and I’m sure that she’ll keep it up with the quality of work she’s been presenting. One of her prints might have to be the next thing I buy.
