Some nice things came in the mail this week. Suzanne, based in Scotland, writes a blog called Fieldy where she documents her adventures in making beautiful, functional things from Harris Tweed (check out her cushion covers- beautiful). I commented a while ago that i liked this make-up bag, and she was kind enough to send it to me! It's beautifully made- the front is like a little colour-study in wool. It doesn't matter that I don't have any make-up, because I can think of many other things i can tote around in here.
She also sent me this sweet little scotty dog toy and some green and brown trim. Thank you, S.
And last week, these little birds arrived from the States. I discovered a new etsy shop- Paulabirdy- a couple of weeks ago, fell in love with the little prints in there and ordered a few for Christmas presents for the children and one of their best friends. I love the old fashioned-ness of nursery alphabets, and Paula Gibbs' branch and bird version is a sweet interpretation. You can buy the whole alphabet, or little prints of individual letters.
