Paris Breakfast

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe how much I adore the watercolor works of Carol Gillott. Living in New York and day dreaming of Paris, she paints “petite bites of Parisien flavor”. You can see more of her sweet pieces on her blog and Flickr page or purchase an original through her Etsy shop.



Etsy Crush: Planet Fur

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Not only is the shop name completely adorable but the merchandise melts my heart! These minature animal heads are so sweet and would be an adorable addition to any room. Marlous, the creative genius behind these busts, lives in the Netherlands and creates each of her furry friends by hand.

Though tough to pick a single favorite, I think Hermione the Rhino takes the cake. Evidently Hermione like to throw parties , which explains her little party hat! Check out the Planet Fur shop here.

*Also, Rachel of Black Eiffel asked me to guest blog for her while she’s taking care of her new baby girl India Grace. I’ll be there all this week, so make sure to stop by for a double-scoop of Twig & Thistle!

I’ve recently added some new bags to the Etsy shop which also happen to be featured beautifully in the current issue of Wedding Style Guide.

Made of translucent glassine paper, these little bags are the perfect size for a wedding favor, a dash of party confetti or what ever else you can think of! Available for purchase here.
