Four Fabulous Friday Finds 4-1

Trying to get back on the Friday Finds!  Here are my latest and greatest…

This cute little bird soap from Orangethyme has actually been a favorite of mine for a long time.  It has to be the cutest little soap I have ever seen!  It makes me want to find a little ceramic soap dish in the shape of a nest so that I can give him a home 🙂

Always a sucker for finding new ways to recycle, I found this light to be beautiful and GENIUS!   Titye is an amazing shop with items like book lamps, tea cup lights and door knob coat hangers.  I love it!!

ConduitPress is another great example of taking recycling to a whole new level.  I absolutely love her leather journals, but my favorite are her book safes.  Charge your iphone, hide your money or conceal a flask… there is one (or two.. or ten…) for everyone!

Danielle Spector  at ReshapeStudio has the cutest and quirkiest handmade ceramics I’ve ever seen.  Her talent and sense of humor really show in her work.  I just love this creamer and sugar set!

Christmas is coming…

So, I know it’s not even Halloween yet, but I have been seriously thinking about Christmas lately. I plan on being EXTRA crafty this holiday season and making the majority of my gifts.

I’ve been thinking of things to create other than my usual jewelry. Some of the ideas that I have come up with:

– homemade sugar scrubs in various scents

– homemade truffles in decorative boxes

– coasters and large decorative tiles made with tile from the hardware store (posibily painted and/or with vinyl lettering)

– Magnet sets in decorative altoids boxes

I am also thinking about knitting a few things. I’m not a great knitter and it becomes pretty time consuming for me, so it hasn’t been set in stone. However, I would really like to make fingerless gloves and the scarflettes that seem to be pretty popular right now (see pic).

I love this one, however I'm not talented enough for "cable knit" yet...

We’ll have to see what I get around to, but I promise to blog about my exporations as they come about!
