Pimp your Dining Table

They make me wanna remedy that!

Flowah Powah

I’m not much of a faux-flower fan, I love my flowers and herbs real and smelly on my balcony each spring and summer. I like picking them out and potting them. And that some die while others bloom.

BUT! Having a cutie cat and him wanting to eat living things as soon as they come in, it can get dangerous if you don’t know all there is to know about poisoning plants for cats. Plus, I can’t seem to keep plants alive inside… Maybe my thumb turns green as a chemical reaction to the outdoors (can’t wait for spring to start my spot at the community garden for the 2nd year!).

So maybe the crocheted flowers by Suili (also known as Papercutdiecut, which I already blogged about here) are my safe and perfect solution, cause they are crafty cuuuuute! :)

The lovely Janine from Uppercase Gallery asked me to be part of the new exhibition called s-t-i-t-c-h featuring 10 artists (all ladies, I must add) from all over Canada on the theme of, well, you’ve guessed it, needlework (sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting). Of course, I had to say yes!!

For the occasion, I decided to whip up 2 new embroidery pieces (you can have a glimpse below)! I should make some for the shop soon, they got quite a warm welcome on My Flickr when I uploaded them last week!

So if you’re lucky and live in the Calgary, Alberta, area (#204, 100 – 7th Ave SW), hop on over there on the evening of March 5!

You must have guessed that I love linen fabric by now. So Inklore‘s shop is basically pure torture for me. lol

Pouches, aprons, coasters, bags, table runners, name it! All hand printed, too!

If you haven’t met this shop before, just go.

I found Maramiki on Etsy a few months back, and instantly fell in love with her hand-screenprinted fabrics!

And her items too, of course! Mostly pillow covers, but also pincushions and napkins, in blends of linen and cotton (some organic)!

So I spied (lol) and kept looking and wishing, when I finally decided to just go for it and buy a pack of remnants! What I received was a fabulous selection, exactly what I expected and wanted! Got me inspired instantly so yesterday I made this, below.

Nea + Maramiki = Perfect match! :)

Got a Valentine?

Oh sure, it’s not Valentines yet, BUT with shipping delays and all, it’s now time to shop for that perfect I-Love-You gift!

So I’ve been creative the past few weeks making some sweet items for the occasion and adding them to my Shop! Hearts are flowing of course, but also just pinks and purples and more lovely color combos :) I really hope you’ll love them! Let me know what you think ;)

And if you are single, that’s not sad at all, you can treat yourself! Cause we’re the most important love of our own lives!

I am in total love with these cute little embroidered boxes by Papermode!

Wouldn’t the next small gift you offer look hot in this? :)
