Some of My Favorite Things...

Dec 5, 2008

Everyday I take a moment to have a nice cup of tea and visit my favorite blogs. I love seeing things crafty, hand made, and aesthetically pleasing. These blogs have it all and then some.
The first is Bloesem. Today they have some colorful textiles from Amsterdam. It makes me want to get on a plane and hit some far away bazaars and flea markets!

Another super cute blog is Creature Comforts. Ez, the blogger, also makes some amazing jewelry and crafts sold on her Etsy store. She posted a tutorial on how to make your own wrapping paper by stamping celery stalks. It's given me a new perspective on what's in the veggie drawer of my fridge!

Finally, my all time favorite blog, the mother of all blogs is Decor8. I always find that Holly not only shares her discoveries of others design ventures, but she also shares the design transformations of her own homes. It's such a pleasure to be invited into someone's world like that. I really treasure her site!

The best thing about these blogs is that they're a great place to discover independent sellers and talented crafts. I've done some of my Christmas shopping from different stores found on each of these blogs. This year, there will be some unique gifts under the tree!
