{Love, Love all these crocheted creations by Sarah London! Especially the grandpa hangers! Oh, and check out these roses! Thanks for telling me about her blog, Tara!}

I started knitting years ago and am pretty much at the same level as when I first started. I’m really good at scarves and pot holders. I’ve even made a few cell phone cases and coin purses, but that’s about the pinnacle of my expertise. Whereas a friend of mine started crocheting months ago and is awesome. She makes some of the cutest yarn animals and headbands. (I keep telling her she needs an etsy shop.)

I have been so busy lately. I apologize if you have stoped by and noticed I have not been updating. But, I promise I’ll jump back on my blogging horse soon… just as everything settles with opening the shop!

YAY! The shop finally open! But, it is still very much a work in progress. There will be some layout changes (large and small) coming down the pipes soon, as well as some creative photography going up. I am also waiting on many new items from some very cool eco-designers to come in as well as have a oodles of vintage finds to add to the shop. Please, check back frequently!

Oh, and there will be a blog where I will be posting store updates, new arrivals, organic, vegan and/or vegetarian recipes, and eco-craft projects!

coaster

So, I was checking out more of Essie’s blog, Penelope Waits, and came across these handmade coasters. Aren’t they adorable?! Once I find fabric as cute as hers, I’m going to sew some up. She says they only take about an hour… an easy, lovely weekend DIY project! I love those! Click here to get the complete set of directions.

Little sights of love while eating a fish basket:

Out on the patio, at the table in front of mine was a couple dressed in matching head to toe denim outfits. This may sound awful to some, but it was actually really sweet. They were sitting on the same side of the table, snuggled up real close to each other just chatting away. It was like they were wrapped in a denim blanket. Where did one person begin and the other end?

Later, I noticed an elderly couple heading toward the door to leave. They were holding hands. As they neared the exit, the old man sped up to get the door for her. As he held the door wide open with one hand, he already had his empty arm outstretch toward her. His hand must of been just itching to snatch her up again.

I’m slightly leery to announce this, but I actually had a tear… or two. Which, is extremely embarrassing when you are sharing a picnic like table with complete strangers and you have to reach over to unravel a paper towel from the holder stationed in the middle to dry your eyes. What can I say, I’m a huge softy. It’s just that catching those little signs of love is so awesome.

Oh, and here’s a little scientific fact. Getting sad or choked up while eating isn’t good for digestion. Stops it in fact. That’s why I never watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition while eating.

Hope you are having a lovely Saturday!

Love these sky planters by Boskke! How handy would this be in the kitchen? Just a little snip for fresh herbs and doesn’t take up counter space!

Yes, I know it’s still hot out (particularly here in Texas), but the winter months will be here before we know it. Soon, we will all be needing an adorable pair of wrist worms by Sandra Juto to keep out hands and arms snuggly, wooly warm. I think I’ll get the boyfriend a pair too (so, I don’t feel so bad when I send him in the cold to take the dogs out). And, they’re 100% handmade with love! Everything is better when it’s made with looove (especially sandwiches). I just feel so warm and cozy inside already!
