… these are a few of my favorite things.


This weeks favorite things… has to start with every thing from the last post.  The beautiful pile of wool, the machine…. SHEESH! I am really still in complete shock.  But we’ll move on.

2) Gudrun Sjoden.  Swedish Design.  So beautiful.  I don’t even really know how to pronounce this women’s clothing and home decor company but I have been getting their catalogue for just over a year and I am completely smitten.  Of course, if I could convert EU’s to dollars I would prolly realize that I can’t afford anything, so I just use it for inspiration.  Even the catalogue is beautifully designed.  They are layering masters.  AND they are totally committed to sustainability and organic certification.

3) The Netti Pot.  This ancient invention is my modern saving grace.  Nasal Irrigation is (in my opinion) super important for us textile enthusiast because there are lots of fibers floating around.  It is kind of odd getting started, feels weird but once you get the hang of it it’s addicting.  There are many how tos on YouTube, here is one.

4) I HAD to buy some of the trim two or three week ago.  It is from Anna Sui.  It is an amazing $6 a yard- for embroidered silk organza.   Had to.  Now I have been petting it like it is a cat of something.  It makes me smile!

5) This is something that I did not buy…. but totally lust after.  It is a cotton from Italy.  It has a beautiful hand and subtle shadow stripe seersucker.  I thought I was going to be able to buy some wholesale from a dealer in NYC but it fell through…. and I don’t think I want to pay retail even with my discount.  I am cheap…. sometimes… at least.
