Shopping List Saturday

Easter is upon us! With a small nod to this, I've chosen some pastel beauties to share with you this weekend. Enjoy...

1)Nested no. 2/ wunderlust- I'm so smitten with this nest (more in the shop)...a gloriously simple yet hugely effective idea! What a terrific way of using up your scraps; I'm so keen to discover how it all holds together...tiny stitches? glue? woven?
2)doily clock/ andfurthermore - don't you just love doilies?? I love the notion of taking them to an extra level - as a constant decorative feature. Beautiful.
3)Rabbit by Klaus Haapaniemi/ Wilkintie - I'm going to quote from the item description: 'A charming print by the master of folk art inspired imagery from Finland. Klaus brings to this print a wonderful sense of the mystery and magic of nature, it's not hard to imagine the Sami gods bringing forth this exquisite creature from the frozen Tundra soil.' Love it. It tells its own story.
4)NEST/ MariaElena - Each NEST is unique, crocheted from upcycled fabric and embellished with an assortment of beads,vintage buttons, bangles, ribbon, yarn, feathers, birch bark and bits of lace. Nests aren't just for Easter, but they're perfect for Spring, and I love the pieces of ephemera that have been combined together here. Eclectic, and not dissimilar to that of a bird collecting paraphernalia for their own nests.

Have a terrific holidaytime...xx

I'm a fan of the clock. Very cool use of the doily. Or maybe I'm just enamored with the Tiffany blue background!
