The Search for the Boucle Jacket

The search is on for a fun, tweed, Chanel-like jacket.  While I'd prefer Chanel or Gucci, I am loving this blue version from Zara.  The quality is not fantastic but the prices are good.  See this one here.

I prefer the shorter versions like this one also from Ann Taylor:

This one is on sale, also at Ann Taylor:

The Cutest Rabbit Wreaths Ever

Rabbits are my weakness.  How cute are these? Just in time for the Easter season. 

I love the spring and Easter. Bring on the bunnies!

The Iconic Tobacco Leaf Reappears

This iconic pattern, seen mostly in china, is in the Met.  I blogged about this before (see the earlier post here) but it's now showing up not just in china.

You can easily have your own set of plates in tin at a very reasonable price. These are from Winterthur

A needlepoint pillow?

Tobacco Leaf notecards?

Cute pads?  Perfect gift! See them here.

Or perhaps a Tobacco Leaf inspired bunny candlestick? Vintage of course!

If you hold onto something long enough it becomes chic again!

Make Mine Green

Maybe green is the color for me because it's the color of nature, of spring......

Hoping to see more green as we move out of winter....

Needlepoint and Straw Handbags

These are the cutest handbags for spring and summer and are so easy to make.  You can use a Christmas ornament or even a coaster to make your one-of-a-kind handbag.

You could create one with an interchangeable needlepoint ornament.....just an idea......

Here are a few suggestions:

The ornaments are from and the bags were put together by Po's Point in Charlotte, NC.  So cute and so easy and so one-of-a-kind.  Happy stitching!
