Last of the red stripe grain sack pillows.  One light red stripe.  Two dark red stripe.  These are so pretty and cheerful.  The vintage fabric is from Eastern Europe and was used to transport grain from field to mill over 100 years ago.  Very soft and sturdy.  Nice on the bed or couch.  Lovely in summer, and especially cheerful in winter!

On sale at 20% off until the end of today.  Use code summer2013 at checkout.

Just enjoying summer time...this week's a hot one in the city.  I'm posting lots of summer stuff on Instagram (because it's so fun and easy!), but this space is a bit neglected.  Sneak peek of fall pillows above in bottom right photo.  Take it easy in the heat, folks.

Two new scarves in the shop. One in burnt orange and lavender stripe.  And the other in honey, rhubarb and slate madras.  Made from washed Indian cotton and hand fringed by me.  Whew!  Hand fringing is super labor intensive!  Beautiful and  deliciously soft with colors that can take you into fall.
Happy weekend!

Happy Fourth of July to all those in the USA today!  In honor of summertime, I've written a little travel guide to Cape Ann, MA, one of my favorite summertime destinations, for Poppytalk.  From beautiful beaches to the best fried clams, I've listed my own personal favorites.  See the full post here.  Thanks to Poppytalk for hosting me!

new pillows

Just added these summery beauties to the shop.  Vintage cotton canvas with bold, colorful stripes.  Red/green here.  Brown/green here.  These three are a unique collection, as I only have a tiny bit left of this canvas.  Hope to make some zip bags from what I have left, coming up next week.

I love that Etsy now has an improved "about" shop link.  I just updated mine.  It's a nice way to tell customers about your shop!
