I had the distinct pleasure of working with and styling for some of the amazing Makers from my Great.ly Boutique and the even more distinct pleasure of getting to see, touch, and feel a few of their pieces in real life. I am completely over the moon for these pretties and utterly blown away by the stellar quality of each and every one of them. As a gal who considers herself something of a Maker as well, I am always so excited to see the handmade genius of others come to life. Quite honestly the sheer amount of talent that is currently represented in my Living Room is off the charts at this point. I feel pretty lucky to have the privilege of gazing at these beauties, up close and personal, for the time being... It is quite the treat.
The ceramic and crochet Cloud Planter is just amazing, and adds such fabulous interest to this spot. The Emanate Jilly Cup in Blue has a couple of hidden design gems that make this multi-functional cup a total knock-out. As a huge fan of the Beetles, but not such a fan of the traditional band poster, this print is perfect. The Handwoven Petel Pillow has a gorgeous understated pop of neon that you absolutely must see and admire up close, it is to die for, and the bold graphic Block Cushion is just a show stopper... You might have seen these pillows put to good use in my Indoor / Outdoor House Bed Playhouse and Lounge, they have become my new favorite duo. A bit like a pair of styling and decor super heroes... and I kinda love them!
I absolutely love that each and every one of these items is handmade and that the purchase of them supports small businesses and Makers around the world - quite literally. I think this is such an important thing in this day and age of mass production. I hope you will take a gander at what these amazing folks are capable of and how their creative genius manifests. It is just lovely.
