1. "You Are Some Kindo Special" card by thecraftpantry. This is one of those cards that would be really fun to send to a friend unexpectedly. I love everything available at thecraftpantry - check out her greeting cards and also her wide selection of cute market totes - grocery shop in style while helping to take care of the environment at the same time!
2. Cushion cover - black block floral on cream, by quiltification. I like the graphic nature of this pillow - it could work in a modern setting, or add some punch to a traditional one. It would also look great on the bed in a neutral bedroom. It is affordable, and I really like the wide variety of graphic print pillow covers that quiltification offers.
3. Black & white damask hobo bag - I post this in fear and trembling, should any of you buy this bag before I can! I just love it, what can I say? But, for a lighthearted replacement, also in black and white, I might spring for this bag. There are a lot of purses to be found on Etsy, but there's something about the individual sort of style at revolutionoftheheart that just makes them my favorite.
drink coasters - I feel like coasters are one of those necessary evils in life, and so when I find some I actually like, I rejoice. These are unique and could fit just about any decorating style. Fabulous for a shabby chic setting, but would work well in a traditional, elegant home too. The hockwear store offers a wide range of both elegant and modern styles, each one handmade and different from the next.
5. Branch: a photographic pendant - Littleputbooks makes a line of pendants made out of a Scrabble (the game) tile and beautiful papers or photographs. Man, some people are just so creative! I think it's a novel idea and one they execute really well. Wouldn't you love to have this beautiful conversation piece around your neck? Or to give it as a memorable gift?
