Just a few snippets from around the shops this week…
1. in love with our vintage chenille candy canes at both stores & the red/leather sofa combo at Factory South
2. book tree Kaitlyn put together. it’s sort of adorable.
3. had my sweet friend, Lucy, down this week for a trunk show and workshop. More pics to come, but can’t say enough how much I love her work.
This week I honestly could have pulled my own hair out, but I felt grateful for these small moments that inspired me. Hope the rest of your weekend is filled with those, friends.
Oh, I love the book tree! How clever.
I second the motion with Miss Mustard Seed! The book tree is truly a great idea.
Thank you so much! Just a couple of books, some ribbon and a star on top 🙂
The Christmas (assuming) tree from books is an ingenious idea.
This brings me to the millions of trees that get chopped down simply for the festive season and end up in a landfill afterwards. Which is beyond sad and (if you allow me) a bit stupid too. We can allow ourselves to grow past this wasteful tradition and move toward more creative and environmentally-friendly ideas such as the one displayed here.
P.S. My only concern is potentially damaging the books by overstretching them like that but there are always less important books and old textbooks for the job :))
Book tree is always cool idea 😉 It’s adorable 😀
The Christmas tree tradition have spread in the second part of the 19th century. I’d say enough is enough – it is a bad taste to cut off a living tree and use it for a decoration. In other words, +1 for the idea of replacing the tree with books or whatever.
