The ever-so-popular Tarnby rug...

Tarnby Rug
..is MINE! It is in it's temporary location as I figure out a new configuration to our tiny bedroom where the rug will go. Decorating a house takes so much time and money! I'm going to have to master this on a budget, especially since my tastes seem to land in the expensive side. Luckily, I am a big craigslist fan and thrifting is a hobby.

My next goal: find a set of mid-century nightstands!

Welcoming Madeline

Meet the new member of the group! Needle felting sure is an acquired hobby...it takes so long just to make one of these but when it's done, it's well worth the trouble. It's definitely going to be difficult to bid farewell to these birds! Hope someone will enjoy them as much as I do.

3 best friends
Best of friends: Madeline, Mary, and Molly (front to back) set out to explore the overgrown garden.

The trio will be up on my etsy shop as soon as I can get tags made for them!

Needle felted owls and birds

First completed needle felted owls

Meet Mary and Molly, my first completed needle felted owls completed! Hacked my brain for a bird design and came up with this owl!

Love birds (cake toppers)

The love birds ready to be on top of a cake

Completed cake toppers for myself!

Finally, the set I first started in Dec 2009, completed at last. One day, it will perch on top of my very own cake...or something like that.

Hope you all like it! Looks like I will be opening up that etsy shop soon!

Juju hat smitten

You're probably wondering what a juju hat is, well it is only the most beautiful set of tail feathers that I would LOVE to put above my mantle! It's a feathered headdress from Africa and typically worn my tribal chiefs in the Cameroonian kingdoms. The feathers are hand woven into a raffia base...I wonder if I could just get a ton of feathers and glue them all together and replicate this instead of pay $6-700 for a piece of this...

This hand-stitched Moroccan leather pouf is also on my "need to acquire" list. This is more affordable coming in at ~$200. Functions as a foot stool or extra seating. I like this shade of orange or some shade of yellow.

And these will probably never be justifiable purchase: Moroccan wedding blanket. Isn't that Berber rug just to die for??

**I stumbled across the amazing Louise Bell and her tabletonic blog/store while searching for a couch. Isn't her taste simply impeccable?**
