How can you not have a soft spot for these crocheted covered sea stones by Margie Oomen? The second I saw these one of a kind beauties, I immediately rushed to her Etsy store only to discover that they were all sold out. Strike two. A doctor and self taught craftsperson, Margie hand crochets each stone with vintage cotton and tiny vintage crochet hooks. Outrageously awesome. And now, I wait patiently for a replenishment.
I’ve recently come across Yuketen, an outstanding American based luggage and footwear company. Designer Yuki Matsuda pays homage to the American crafts and traditions by treasure hunting for outstanding examples of footwear and luggage in remote locales spread out across the rolling Appalachians to the high Sierras. And thanks to him, there is yet another moccasin I need in my life.

The early bird caught the worm. The worm being this sold out gorgeous black lace floral print dress at Pixie Market and the early bird not being me. What hurts even more is that it was only $94. Thankfully, there are many other pretty dresses to pick from here. But I will still lament missing out on this treasure . . . don’t you hate it when that happens?
I am wild about these beautiful worldly goods from Plumo. I’ve got a thing for ottomans and poufs, so I’m definitely adding these Kelim Poufs to my wish list. I’m a big believer that you can never have enough poufs in your home. The more, the merrier!

That is so adorable! You did a great job! <3
Love it! Did you do the tassels all the way around or only on one side?
SO Cute! This is officially on our list of crafts!
Absolutely loved this - I never knew how those little tassels were made but now I do - there's no stopping me! Thank...
Really creative idea, will try this out. Thank you xx
