I've been fortunate enough lately to have some wonderful handmade things blow in my direction.
Clare bought these wonderful crocheted glass cozies for me as a housewarming present. They were made by one of her friend's mother who is of Mennonite faith and makes a lot of things by hand.
The hat shop in Newtown (I don't know if it actually has a name - it has no signage*) was having a 'Hat Tat' sale last weekend, and because this felted hat wasn't finished with edging it was only $15! I bought some vintage ribbon in two different colours to go around it. Might make a felt rose too.
And... I have placed an order for these totally awesome vegan eco-chic ballet flats from TheGeneration. I can't wait for them to arrive. I am desperately in need of some flat shoes that go with just about anything, after my $13 job interview shoes from years ago finally fell apart. RIP.
*but if you're looking for it, it's beside Oscillate Wildly on Australia Street.
