Heading into that save the date time of year!  This is the first of the holiday shows I'll be doing this year, and it's a big one.  I would love to see you there at The Park School on Saturday, November 15 at 171 Goddard Ave, Brookline, MA!  Check out the details at www.parkschool.org/craftfair

2014 Fall/Winter Cowls are just about done!  Ok, I still have to finish sewing labels into them and then take a few more photos with a model (hardest part, since the model's usually me and I hate having my photo taken).  And then they are ready for the shop and the holiday trunk shows.

This year, I wanted to do a new take on the cowls I've been doing over the years, and I loved the idea of creating a soft, nubbly texture with this simple moss stitch.  The result is super soft and cozy without being too tight...better explained by a photo of someone wearing it...coming up soon.

The cowls are hand knit (by me, of course!) in 100% washable Merino wool, which is really soft (and not itchy) and come in five different colors: black, gray, doe brown, moss green, and royal heather blue.

Wishing you a good weekend.   Typical New England fall weather is predicted around here...sunny, but cooler...I'll be wearing a cowl, no doubt!

Just added this collection of handmade vintage floral and Belgian linen pillows to the shop.  Something about them feels very French to me.  4 of each color available at jillbent.etsy.com.

Some orange and yellow on a grey Wednesday.  Just added this cute little orange Turkish coffee maker to the shop. Great for making Turkish coffee of course, (provided you know how to make it!) but also for melting butter or chocolate.

Love these peachy and yellow pillowcases for fall...these are the last sets too!

A few banners left also, right here...

Thanks for having a look!

After the rush of school starting in September, it's always apples that herald the nice things about fall.  We went apple picking last week, and now have tons of apples to transform into a pie, applesauce, and to snack on after lunch.

This week I'm getting to work on some fall clothes peg dolls for the shop and upcoming shows in November and December!  Suddenly they don't seem so far off...

I found these vintage Cathrineholm bowls this summer and couldn't wait to list them in the shop.  I love the green zebra stripes.  My mom had a set of these bowls when I was growing up with orange stripes, in fact I think she still has them!  This set is sturdy and well loved.  I priced them a bit lower than other online dealers have them listed for, because they have a bit of wear and tear on the insides, but they are valuable and highly collectible.  And just very attractive and useful!
