Milk Bottle Measuring Cups

Love these milk bottle measuring cups from Anthropologie! Perfectly beautiful inside and out, and the fact that they’re stackable make them the prettiest space saver ever!



DIY Gold Staples in a Pinch!

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

While working on my latest Save The Dates, I was in desperate need of gold staples but couldn’t find any locally and didn’t have time to order them. I improvised with a gold permanent pen and violá instant gold staples!

While staples come in a plethora of colors now a days, it’s fun to make your own. I imagine that this would work with any permanent marker as well and it’s a good trick when you’re in a bind!



New Save The Dates In The Shop!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been working on a new addition to the Etsy shop recently and I’m thrilled to be able to share with all of you! I wanted to create a unique Save The Date card based off of a matchbook. The covers are letterpressed in gold metallic ink onto light blue, pink or green stock. Inside, are custom magnets that are perforated at the bottom so they can be torn off and saved on a refrigerator.

I am so excited with how these turned out and have definitely been inspired by lace and spring colors! You can check out the new Save The Dates here – hope you like them!



Embroidery Calendar

Friday, April 8th, 2011

It’s a little past calendar season but I happened upon this embroidered one via the Behance Network and was blown away! What a clever idea and equally beautiful in execution.

This one-off design was created by design student Iwona Przybyla from Poland. All her work is quite impressive and I wish that I could read Polish so that I could follow along on her blog. Definitely worth checking out either way, full of fantastic inspiration!



April Sponsor Thanks!

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Wow, this year is going by quickly, it’s hard to believe it’s already April! On that note, I’d like to welcome our newest sponsor, Pinky Swear Designs, to Twig & Thistle!

Pinky Swear Designs began when Lauren and Alina both realized they couldn’t find personalized jewelry that they loved. Each have design backgrounds and have loved using their combined experiences and talents to make something really personal and special for their customers. Every single piece they make is “from scratch” and they put a lot of love and thought into the pieces.

I love the charming handcrafted quality to each of their pieces and any of them would make for a perfect mother’s day gift! Please take a moment to check out what they have to offer as well as the rest of our sponsors. For more Pinky Swear, check out their blog too!
