The Wind in the Willows ~ Handcrafted Bolivian Willow Furniture

1a6331-LARGE

I adore weeping willows.  They evoke lovely memories of being a child.  We would hide and play under the soothing cool cover of the willow trees in the summer.  It was if it was a magical outdoor room that was all ours!

I found these incredibly organic pieces at my friends The Victorian Trading Company.  I love the feminine form and movement of them.

Natural, romantic, enduring, and classic.  Each piece is handcrafted by Bolivian artisans.

3 piece set: Loveseat (54x33x43″) Chairs (43x32x32″).

Lusting for Lusterware

Copy+of+IMG_8012

Antiquing yesterday with The Mr. was great fun!  I found a great lot of vintage peach Fire King Lusterware plates, bowls and side plates for just $13.  What a bargain!

Since my old plates have gotten worse for wear, I decided to treat myself to some *new* plates for our new pad.  These little vintage shimmery gems are so pretty!  Originally, I had picked them up to re-sell but when The Mr. said, “Those will be cool in our new place!” I quickly changed my mind to keeping these and starting a new collection!

And so it begins.

Super Cool Downloadable Digital Collage Sheets

Yesterday while perusing ETSY I came across a gal in England that makes some of the coolest downloadable digital collage sheets for $3.99 each.  Currently, she has over 200 different sheets to purchase, that could be used for a plethora of different things;  from gift tags to spice labels.

My smart husband also reminded me that if the files are of a high quality, they could be used as the base for artwork such as stretched custom canvas where they use your personal image.
