Etsy is a great source for handmade treasures. A true bastion of small businesses and little guys. I buy from Etsy because supporting sellers like this encourages a market for the unique and original – something that I wish we all valued a bit more.
As the weather warms and I think of spending more time outside enjoying simple pleasures, I am drawn to these ticking traveling cushions by Monikaw. They are handcrafted and filled with organic sheep wool
These beauties are actually only inches tall. Perfect for a desktop distraction.
These are available from the Etsy shop, Bent Tree Gallery but you can get human sizes versions too at The Bent Tree website. For your real world and your imaginary one.
The Bent Tree Gallery also has some lovely wine accessories like these baskets for carrying bottles and bread outside for a picnic.
Hand forged hooks to hang plants, banners, art, birdhouses, lights or whatever fits your mood are infinitely more interesting than the Home Depot Special. Handmade by Steel Zebra.
