oh my ampersand!




it has been ages since i last posted about one specific artist or shop, but i've been thinking about doing a post about ohmyampersand for a while. first, because i think cheryl's wood pendants and brooches are gorgeous, but also because she seems so nice! each one of her pieces of wooden jewelry are made from either scrap or found wood. she also does collage, and prints & cards inspired by nature - really lovely things. just click on each photo to take you to a description of the item, and you can check out her etsy shop here. i am off to vermont for an end of summer mini vacation - have a great holiday weekend!

getting cozy








it has been ridiculously long since my last post, i know. it has been a crazy summer, and i have been surprisingly busy with my little shop. i would like to get back to posting more collections like these and i vow that i will! this lovely group was pulled together from three autumn inspired treasuries. from top to bottom: "bodega bay horizon" by windylanestudio, "1950s striped moss day dress" at thrush, ""felt slippers, spiral" by estelav, "artichoke, eat your veggies" by valentinadesign, "let's spoon ll kitchen love notes" by brooklynrehab, "heuk french fry cutter" at thecottegecheese, "deer antler whistle" by antlerqlwear, and lepetitchandelier. you can see the treasuries these beautiful images came from here: strangely beautiful, getting cozy in the kitchen, and getting cozy.
