Fabric or Fiction makes cute fall-themed bunting banners.
But let’s get real. I’m mostly excited for the s’mores banner.
Lately, I’ve fallen in love with under-stated print drawings of women doing playful things.
Like these vintage-inspired prints by Irena Sophia.
They make me happy, and partially disappointed, because I so very much desire to be a superhero with super knitting strengths.
I just can’t get enough of these textile designs on canvas from Laura Amiss. She’s a textile artist living in Amsterdam.
I love what she does with fabrics.
My favorite. I could stare at this one all day.
She also does prints.
Sigh. Doesn’t this luggage from GetReadySetGo make you dream of vacationing at some great places?
Like taking a safari…
These messenger bags make me want to travel to Italy, or anywhere in Europe, really.
I would love to take this on a fun seafaring adventure.
Or maybe just take a trip to grandmother’s house. It may be boring, but at least you’ll have some attractive luggage.
Amanda James has some great prints in her etsy shop. Enjoy these cute, colorful creatures.
Sasquatch Hearts Nessie – My favorite!
I love this camel print.
And this whale – the detail is amazing.
I strongly believe there are two types of people in this world: those whose lives would be adversely affected if pillows didn’t exist and those whose lives wouldn’t. If pillows disappeared today, you can bet I’d be in a perpetual state of crankiness. I’m a pro lounger. I like to lay on things, especially pillows, or drape them over me in a “I’m going to hide from my problems” type of way. I like to nap on my couch with a pillow on every side.
My boyfriend is the other type of person. Beware of these people – the pillow haters (and by extension life haters, puppy haters, and cupcake haters). He thinks they’re extraneous fluff in life.
Today is the day to celebrate the pretty pillows in your life, or at least the ones you wish were in your life. Appreciate the things that make your day comfy, relaxing, and soft.
Go team pillows!
My bestie pointed this one out.
It seems like owl pillows are everywhere.
I’m a sucker for anything under the sea.
Coffee is my favorite thing, so it makes sense to have it in pillow form.
This pillow is breathtaking. I love the fabric and the colors are great. Plus, love geography.
More under the sea gems. This one is made with hand felted Australian Merino wool.
Have a tea party on pillows?
How do you like your pillows, er, eggs?
I feel very silly today.
Which type of person are you? A pillow lover or hater?
It’s no surprise that I love dinosaurs. I have a tattoo of an apatosaurus on my calf. But really, I’d like to take it up a notch and deck my body out in dinosaur bling.
like these over at verameat:
dino love bone – the description says “worn by Miranda July.” I knew I loved her/this necklace/both.
For the water-loving vegetarian:
And for the hungry carnivore:
Oh, but woe is me, what a hefty price tag. Hello, etsy [warning, i may have gone a little overboard.]
triceratops brooch [what a great brooch!]
As you can see, I’m quite the enthusiast. What do you think? Are the etsy finds a similar cheaper alternative? What ones would you wear?
Also, verameat has quite the selection of monster, vampire, and animal jewelry, and it’s all magnificently done.
Well, I guess it’s a month away. I am hyped to share some not so average cards with you. They’re all handmade, so less Hallmark-consumer stuff.
Free download of these at Bunny Cakes.
Because I freaking love dinosaurs!
For the cynic.
And finally this one…
I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw it. It’s like someone has been listening to my conversations. Is this too much? Cheese alert. The beau and I don’t say “I love you.” Instead we saw “Olive You.” I guess we’re not so original.
