Ive been doing some trading...

On Etsy, I am a proud member of team Handmade in PA. Over the holidays we all exchanged addresses and had a little secret santa trade. I received this super adorable little walrus plush friend made by talented artist Becky, AKA Bahee


Needless to say, he is in quite good hands, happy as can be hanging out on our bookcase. Such a cute little guy, dont ya think!?


For more adorable plush toys, and really unique earrings(I also received a pair of computer key earrings that are to die for!) visit Beckys etsy shop!

More recently, I met Sultana Aschim at the Philadelphia Designers Market in December. I immediately fell hard for her bullet crystal necklaces. She is a great girl and after a few email exchanges, decided we should probably do a trade since we both liked each others work. Yesterday in the mail, I received probably my most favorite necklace of all times!


I had such a hard time choosing what amazing piece I wanted... Sultana also creates splendid bullet earrings and necklaces adorned with feathers AND crystals... Needless to say... I bet we will be doing another little trade in the future... ;)


To see more of Sultana's fabulous work, visit her blog and facebook fanpage.

Last, but certainly not least, is Illustrator Melanie Linder of Spread The Love As you all may know, I am a huge fan of the song "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. I occasionally decide to play it on repeat while prancing throughout our living room space... (Eric really loves those days...) Well now, I have my very own adorable illustration to go along with my crazy singing voice!


So cool, right!!? :) I also received this beautiful folk quilt inspired illustration, along with one more amazing piece that I can't share just yet because I am giving it to a dear friend as a surprise...


For updates on more unique and beautiful prints and to learn more about Melanie, follow her blog!

One more thing before I end this incredibly long post... I have been working like a crazy gal on some new spring things, and I am so excited to share them with you in the coming months... for now, here is a sneak peak at a crochet flower necklace. Hope you like...
