Etsy Art I Heart: Typography & Quotes

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Greetings friends! We had quite a busy weekend with family coming to stay for a memorial service for Matt’s grandmother and then the Superbowl yesterday, no doubt you were all as disappointed as we were with the game (snooze) but I LOVED Bruno Mars during the halftime show, he is so talented!

Don’t you think Downton Abbey is finally getting better this season? I watched last night’s episode and between Rose’s shenanigans and Alfred’s new opportunity and Mary’s suspicions and Edith’s predicament, I can’t wait to see what happens next. The banter between Isobel and the Dowager is so well done don’t you think? I have to rewind it each time they engage each other to hear it again. What do you think of the season so far? (No spoilers!)  

But back to business, I was browsing Etsy again for a few gifts and inspirational quotes and stumbled across several more artists that specialize in typography (this one strikes a chord with me) so I thought I’d feature some favorites today. Lovers of poetry, words, scripture, and inspirational sayings will appreciate these shops!

Joining the Club: Sheepskin Rugs

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

I find the simplest accessories bring great comfort and this time of year it’s all things furry and fuzzy. We have a small collection of faux fur blankets to drape over the beds or sofas for chilly nights. I do love my Mongolian lambswool pillow cover, and recently I succumbed to the lure of the sheepskin rug.

I originally bought it for the floor but it has made its way to the tufted sofa. This is the spot the kitty prefers now but I love just as much for catching up on magazines or a great read. Ubiquitous? Sure. But I couldn’t care less given how soft it is.

I absolutely love the feel of these rugs, I bought this one a few weeks ago and I’m thinking of one more for my bedroom, they add such a cozy and warm layer in winter.
