Things I Love Thursday

I love creativity and people that have the abilty to make beautiful things. I'm not crafty so I'm amazed at people that can take fabric and thread and make it into something . Here are some of my favories this week.

I'm obsessed with this camera bag, I want it so, so much!

I won a giveaway and got this beautiful neclace and earring set from Laura.

She also makes hairpins and lots of other cute things and the prices are so affordable.

My friend Alison (and my first college roommate) makes these. The last thing I got from her was supposed to be for my sister but I liked it so much I kept it for myself (sorry Sarah).

Her newest creation is the Lindsay Clutch. I love the name of her blog & shop because in college we had a pear-sticker collection on our doorway. We also had an entire white board wall.

My amazing friend and another former roomie makes the most beautiful bags.

I like them even more because she started sewing to raise money to adopt a little girl from China. She got her placement a few months ago and will be traveling to China this spring to get Emery Lin!!!! I can't put into words how excited I am for her.

Do you have a favorite handmade blog or shop? I'd love to hear about it.

  1. Maybe I shouldn't have read this post! My wallet won't like it!

    Peggy Ann Design is one of my fav handmade shops/blogs and recently won a clutch and am super excited for it to come in!

  2. Love all the goodies!

    I recently bought a vintage style clutch purse from "Mod Dot Textiles" on Etsy. It's cute & fun with a retro print fabric.
