It's Winter, My Sunglasses Need a Sweater
Look what I had waiting for me in the mail when I got home yesterday. A sweater for my sunglasses by the very talented Jane Hoffman, artist and shopkeeper behind Janery and also the founder of the fantastic blog The Borrowed Abode. I won this little beauty and I am so excited to use it. It is so well made and such a charming color combo.
Jane makes these in so many fantastic colors. You can check out all her beautiful goods at her Etsy shop including wonderful pillows, eyeglass cases, bags, tea towels and more. I visited there yesterday and I was gaga for many things!
On her blog, The Borrowed Abode, Jane shares all sorts of great inspiration for home interiors and projects for the rented home. This week she is doing an awesome giveaway for printed produce and grocery totes that closes TONIGHT. You can see all the details and enter here. Hurry on over there and get in on the goods!
Jane and I met with the lovely EverKelly last August for dinner and we had both gotten engaged within the past 10 days. It's been great fun to read about her unfolding wedding plans on her blog and via email. Looking forward to seeing it all come together from across the country.
Thank you Jane for the wonderful surprise in the mail today. My sunglasses and I are so excited. My purse is quite excited too, since this case matches the orange leather on my purse so perfectly. Thank you for the great home decor inspiration and a wonderful Etsy store we all get to enjoy.
Now, speaking of our friend EverKelly, I really loved her Quilt Market recaps this past couple of weeks. If you want to see what geniuses can do mixing and matching fabrics check out Kelly's posts here. The link will take you to her most recent show post and if you keep scrolling down there are lots more you'll enjoy. She also did some great interviews with many of the talented fabric designers there.
Kelly is super talented and up to some amazing things, she is definitely another gal to watch. And I have to mention, I met both of these gals in the Blogging Your Way class by Holly Becker (Decor8 blog and Decorate book) and Leslie Shewring founder of A Creative Mint. Still paying off more than a year later.
Hope you friends are all well. Sending you warmest wishes. Have a great day!
