Wood you like to to put your cup here?

I've been putting together some new items for my shop, mostly home goods. You might have already noticed the screen printed tea towels. These coasters are made out of logs that I found laying around my Grandpa's farm. They are also screen printed and will be packaged in quantities of four. I'm very happy with how they turned out and I should have them up on etsy shortly!!

ssshhh! (I Heart

For Leslie's (Urbanestics) last DIY night at the Mars Cafe, we made our very own hair accessories out of fabric, feathers, old jewelry and lots of hot glue. I managed to make a few myself:

Now, I just need an occasion to wear them!! Check out her blog for more pictures of the event.

I found this a amazing salvage art/home decor and must share it. Franziska Wodicka creates new furniture with old drawers ready for sale and custom-made and calls her line schubLaden, which is german for 'drawers'. The shop is naturally located in Germany, but more specifically, Berlin. I think it's brilliant!

Oh, hello friend

The oh so lovely Danni has been running a beautiful series on pleats, cutout, lace, ruffles and crochet. She is completing it with this giveaway!! You can find the details on her blog, oh, hello friend. I must say how much I've looked forward to reading each post in this series and am kinda sad that it is over. Nonetheless, I know she has plenty more to offer, so keep checking back!
