Earth Week Countdown

It's a beautiful morning here - the sun is shining and looks like being another great weather day.
I'm heading off to a new craft fair in West Belfast - and have a wee bit of everything packed.  I like craft fairs and getting to meet other local artisans - keeps me from becoming too hermit like ;)

But on with the business of the day ... otherwise I'll be doing a great White Rabbit impersonation later and in a mad rush to make it to the Crafternoon event.

Going to kick off with this gorgeous Wild Irish Rose Clutch Purse from my good friend Rena aka lilycobweb.   Love the name lilycobweb it’s magical sounding and really suits her delicate and perfectly formed crochet creations.

Rena has very kindly offered up this lil beauty for a Giveaway that will be hosted here next week - well if it hasn't sold already by the time we get to Earth Day that is! But don't fear ... if it sells she will offer up another equally delightful purse (hint: if you want it - grab it while you can!)

That White Rabbit comment has me thinking of Alice in Wonderland now (and nope haven't seen the movie yet - but it's on the treat list!).  Anyway this is probably the best time to unveil the delightfully whimsical and out of this world bespoke Mad Hatter Tufted Chair.

I know!  You're all gobsmacked now aren't ya?  I can so see myself sitting this chair and dangling my legs (cos I am a short arse aka vertically challenged).  I love it!  And it was created by the lovely Jeanne at vintagerenewal who breathes life back into vintage or antique furniture transforming the old into a new and one of a kind piece of functional art for your home.

I’m on a whimsy and Alice theme ... and we’ve had something for the ladies, something for the home, so now something for the weans.  So prepare for some more drooling – go get a hankie now – I can wait ...

Ready?  Ok well this had me all Oooh and Aaah because this Oh, Alice Altered Couture Alice in Wonderland Organic Ruffled Girls Shirt, Pants and Hat Set from the delightful and talented Anna aka Amelie Jo is just beyond adorable!

Well there you have it folks!  More earth friendly and awesome finds tomorrow. Have a great day and stay safe and well!

  1. Maura, what lovely and unique finds. Lilycobweb does great work and I have some. The others are also beautiful and unique, she said as she wipes off her keyboard of drool.

  2. Nice picks, Maura. Love the collaboration between Rena and yourself, the blues and greens are dreamy

  3. That chair is to die for!

  4. Hi Maura, thank you so much for featuring our collaboration Clutch Purse. Your corsages have so much character and bring my purses to life! What a great Earth Week post! The chair is amazing, but I am in love with those altered couture kids' clothes from Amelie Jo. Sweetness!!

  5. Oh I love your blog write-ups :))))
    very very entertaining, always a giggle or two in it and really beautiful finds you talked about!!

    that chair is so cool :D
    think I could squeeze in there with you?
    we can dangle our legs together...rather on the short side myself....

  6. Thank you all my dears for visiting and commenting :)

    I'm glad you enjoyed the products - there really is no end of talent to be found a la Etsy and I enjoy sharing my favorites.

  7. I love this chair! As you said, it looks so cozy, and I too can imagine myself sitting on it :)
