Our May catalog drops tomorrow, and we are so excited! The pieces in it are really fabulous, especially our new Riding Hood Convertible Tee and our Convertible Cape! We are extra excited for these two pieces because they can both be styled in a number of different ways! They’re like 4 shirts in one!
We’ve made a little video to show off the different ways to wear these two items, and how to create the looks! Check it out!
Elsie Marley made these delicious looking carrot cake cookies using this recipe, which I am really excited to try! Apparently when Elsie made these cookies they got eaten right up, and no surprise – just looking at them is making my mouth water…
You may remember a while back when we talked about all the cool sequined and embellished tights that hit the runway during fashion week… Well, Park & Cube has a really handy tutorial showing how she embellished the fabulous tights shown above! It has awesome pictures and some handy tips for those of us who feel the urge to DIY some cool tights for ourselves! Check it out here.

These spools of ribbon from Felt at Home are so awesome! It’s such a beautiful way to send someone a message! You can get ribbons with poetry printed on them, or get your own things printed on them, like invitations or birth announcements! Imagine the love notes one could get! The wooden spools are vintage, and so are the buttons. No wonder they look so pretty! You can get yours at Felt at Home’s shop.
I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!
This is some seriously impressive crochet work! I can’t imagine how long it would take to create one of these. They’re the work of artist Jo Hamilton, and if you live in or around Portland, you can go check them out in person! They are currently on display at Stumptown Downtown. If anyone goes, please tell me about them!
I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.
