Stuff I Like, How About You?
You have been very patient while I talked about nothing but baby sheep this week. Today, I'm taking a page out of the playbook of a couple of my heros - sharing stuff they love on their blogs. So here goes. Jump in with your own favorite stuff if you'd like.
A couple of months back in my Upcycle Ravelry group, someone posted links to this very creative gal who made these bracelets (and more) out of cut up gift cards. I've been a crafter all my life, and these were so clever and hip, I loved them immediately.
Ingrid's Handwoven Rugs, in Paint Rock, TX makes wonderful items from wool and alpaca "seconds," or fiber that's too short or too coarse for handspinning. I'm really thinking of collecting my seconds to send to Ingrid's for making some rugs.
I've always had a soft spot for this kind of rustic furniture. I hope I can manage to get some for the farm someday. This fellow comes to the McKinney Trade Days, so I should be able to hook up with him when the time comes.
If you're ever touristing in the Texas Hill Country and come upon Fredericksburg, check out this sweet little knitting and spinning shop. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the little detour.
During my training as a Master Naturalist, I learned that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department had developed a fantastic resource for folks who needed guidance in landscaping their north Texas yards with native plants. People tend to think the only Texas native plants are yuccas and tumbleweeds. Not so, amigos! Check out the interactive website called Texas Smartscape if you want to see some gorgeous, drought-tolerant Lone Star lovelies!
And finally, I have no idea how I stumbled upon this site, but these little Gnome Doors are entirely too cute. I'd love to have these all over the farm...
So how about you? What have you stumbled on, on the Web that makes you bookmark the page?
