Four Season Scarves in a Crochet World
Spring Collection at Miri Miri
I’m in the market for a new wallet, and stumbled across this from Madbird:
|Madbird’s Wallet for Patterns and Tools|
It’s a pattern wallet, with an anti-glare vinyl so you can clearly read your patterns. I love this printed pattern, and although it may not be your traditional money holder, I love the concept. No, I am not a knitter, but there must be something I can organize in here!
They have a great tagline, have been featured in many knitting publications, and are locals, near the Boston area. Check them out!
What Time Is It?
Reading their profile, Martin and partner are based in Vysoke Tatry, Slovakia, and have a keen sense of not only modern yet timeless design, but being eco-friendly as well. Keep up the good work, and we look forward to more innovative ways to tell time!
Check out their website to see and learn more.
He creates bonsai inspired “trees” for aquariums. Java moss is hand tied to a non toxic substrate base, which is bendable so you can pose your tree or bonsai creature any which way you please. Your fish or pet shrimp can help you prune as they forage away on their new aquatic garden decor.
Needless to say, he’s got the green thumb in our family.

It’s been a week since my last post, and perhaps because I, like yourself, have been glued to the news.
Thought I’d share some etsy artists’ ways of helping those terribly afflicted by the disaster.

Wonky and Wonderful
I love this dish by Lea Wood Ceramics, and how it seemingly looks thrown together. Handmade, each plate is unique and a perfect setting for your next colorful cuisine, say fresh mango over steamed salmon and gingered baby bok choy?
She describes some of her pieces as “wonky” but firm, and is inspired by the collaboration between urban and tribal influences. Check out her shop and be delighted by her artistry.
