a house for your books

What do you think of these cute houses for your books and such? Called Library, this little project was designed by Thomas Bentzen of Denmark. I love how it reminds me of my dollhouse from when I was a kid. Looks roomy too!

Alyssa, I think I'd like an actual dollhouse even better. I love that you've done that! I want to see these all stuffed with books!

I've been using my old childhood dollhouses as bookcases for years. They're just the right size for paperback novels. Those ones look like they'd be perfect on top of a table or counter. I can see the little one on top of my microwave holding olive oil and spices!

Ever since I saw these pin cushions on Bettyjoy, I have been desperate to get one! Aren’t they so cool? They are made by Naori Priestly. I could probably make one, right? I just don’t know that it would look as good as Naori’s do!

These are great! I have just been inspired! (the best part is- I really could use a pin cushion!)

socket antlers

Nendo is the creator of these awesome deer antler outlet covers! They advertise them as a way to hold up your phone while you’re charging it, or your keys, but I would love to have an outlet with antlers just for the sake of itself! It looks so cool!

beaded trees

A lot of you have a little break next week, and maybe you want a fun holiday craft to do? I posted these a couple years ago and everyone loved them, so I thought I’d share again!
Our display team made these beaded trees with those styrofoam cones you can buy at the craft store, a bunch of beads, and straight pins. They are SO easy to make and look so pretty and festive. Dump out that bead box and start pinning!
I can see these looking really pretty in more specific colors too, like if you did one all white and sparkly, or used just a few colors instead of the rainbow.

First of all, I HEART FREE PEOPLE. I've known about you guys when you were just sold in Urban and now you're all grown up! Congrats. So when I noticed you had a blog (that I'm so embarrassed I just found out about) I went straight to December hoping you had info on the wonderful decorations you guys have in your stores, and what do you know, here is one. I would like to get more detailed info on how to do this. So and I literally get cones, putting the beads in the push pin and than stabbing the cones with the push pin beads? Just want to make sure I have it right, I'm definitely doing this for the holidays and just because I secretly want my house to look like a free people store. =) Any additional info in this craft would be appreciated. Thanks!
