well this is a new topic for gthr, but i couldn’t resist! isn’t this wildlife photographystunning? i’m glad i’m not the one who had to capture them, but i’m glad someone did! hopefully he had a super zoomy camera. hope you have a wild great day!
ribbons and bows, paper flowers and pennant streamers- what’s there not to love? stylist livia cetti is an event designer, crafster and contributing editor for martha stewart weddings. based out of nyc, i love how her work balances a modern flair with organic sensibilities. can you believe that those flowers are actually tissue paper carnations? you can order them right from her website! and can i just say, if i was standing in front of that candy display, it wouldn’t be looking that way for long. are those candy dots i see rolled up? oddly enough, those are my favorite (paper and all)! visit her website for more inspiration- especially if you’re planning a wedding!
quilts, streamers and coasters, oh my! carrie strine’s work makes me want to have a party, or at least dress my house with some of her beautiful textiles. every piece is made by hand from wall hangings to pillows and the colors are so fresh and surprising. make sure to visit her fabulous blog (seriously, i’ve looked at every.page.). xoxo!
the indie craft parade will bring the best handmade artists from the southeast together under one roof. it’s a public market where you’ll find indie crafts, local food, and opportunities to meet and greet with your favorite artists! held in greenville, sc with free admission, we hope to see you there!
i’ll be there with a booth full of going home to roost goodies! as you can see, i’ve been a busy lady:
pillows galore, some new designs and some old favorites.
120 reversible apron strings for the brand new aprons i’ll be debuting (stay tuned!).
and a tea towel to match each designs, plus a few extras for fun. :)
and to top it all off, some pretty earnings and necklaces! (bet you didn’t know i made jewelry, huh?)
held indoors at the historic huguenot mill in downtown greenville, south carolina- the venue has so much character and is easy to find with tons of parking. visit the indie craft parade website for all the details, and i hope to see you there!

even though it’s still summer, every time september rolls around i start thinking about fall. maybe it’s the beginning of crisp mornings or the wearing of light sweaters at night. or maybe it’s the planting for fall harvests. either way i all the sudden crave leafy decor and autumn colors of green, orange, yellow and red. here are some handmade finds that get my in the spirit of september!
i thought today i would share some inspiring spaces with you. each of them get me itching to redecorate or at least do a project or two! i love all of the patterns represented here, and i can see some yellow stripes in my near future. and that feather pillow? i’m in full blown ‘re-create’ mode after seeing it. i hope you enjoy, get inspired and plan a weekend project (and then share it)!
