Handmade for the holidays

I'm getting pumped for the holidays.

Would you guys like to see what I'm lusting after!? Good!

Tara has the kind of creative vision I'd like to have with any or all of my projects. Seriously, this girl has got some talent when it comes to jewelry. Her pieces are unique, fresh, fun, and elegant. I could definitely wear her stuff every. damn. day.

(my favorite necklace of all time)

I love the great state I live in, and that's why I love Rock City Outfitters

Fayetteville, the city I live in, got this crazyass nickname and there are a million different stories why. Here's what I know... I would love to wear this shirt all the time.

Buttons are also lovely if you're not quite at the same level of Arkansas pride as I am, or if you're just in need of more flair.

Handwoven rag bottom tiny person chair

I'm a little partial already, honestly. I've got a SWEET adult rocker and I've been eying one for the little bean for quite a while. Seriously, this thing is amazing. The seat is totally handwoven, scraps of old fabric in the coolest colors/patterns... I am madly in love with it.

I'm excited about adding a miniature version at some point soon. Especially since her new favorite phrase is "Rock Rock!"

I love Lindsay's wreaths. I'm a sucker for fall/winter decorations already so show me a well made wreath and I'm in! These aren't something you can find down at your local Hobby Lobby or Michael's, they're totally one of a kind, made with lots of love and fake flowers.
You know you love that just as much as I do.

I love art. Anyone who has seen my house will tell you I have a pretty random collection, but I'm always looking to add more. Here are some of my current favorites...

This print was a random Etsy find, I love it! - by Jessica Doyle

Another Etsy find - by Angela Vandenbogaard

My favorite painting by one of my very favorite artists - by the lovely and talented Amber Perrodin

And last, a list of awesome gift sites (not necessarily handmade, but spectacular nonetheless!)
Perpetual Kid - a super random collection of hilarious gifts
GirlPROPS - cheapInexpensive and hilarious jewelry!

Ok, that trees one, the dots? Love it. I love it because it reminds me of a colorblindness test. So not only is it like, really pretty, but it makes me laugh. And I think that = art.


And that jewelry? Yes, please.

I think we have pretty similar tastes! But you are way more funky than I am. LOL
