Pretty Crocheted Winter Accessories

Perfect for the winter bride or just cozying up, I have fallen completely in love with the hand crocheted and knit accessories from elde. Made from fine wools, cotton yarns and mohair, the pieces are lady-like yet completely functional. I’d love a pair of the cute fingerless gloves for cold winter days when I still have to be at the computer and the shawls are perfect for wearing over a wedding dress or formal wear for the holidays. All of the pieces are handmade and absolutely exquisite.

Personalized Holiday Cards from Two Brunettes

My good friend Carolynn of Two Brunettes recently unveiled her 2010 holiday collection, featuring these adorable personalized holiday cards. Needless to say, I’ve been chomping at the bit to share these with you since she originally shared them with me a month or so ago. Each card is illustrated with your likeness and that of your family including spouses, kids and even pets! They are digitally printed and come paired with bright red envelopes perfect for the holiday season. I love a custom holiday card and these are the perfect alternative to the holiday photo card. You know your mom would love to get one of these from you. (Seriously, my mother would die to see her granddogs on one of these cards – too cute!)

A Tractor Birthday Party

The lovely Rebekah of Wild Ink Press was sweet enough to share the incredible birthday party she recently planned for her adorable son Cameron, loaded with fun tractor-themed details perfect for a little boy. In addition to being an all-star design and letterpress duo, Rebekah and her husband Matt’s family are rice farmers in California so the party was held at the family ranch during rice harvest. The warehouse was strung with balloons and bunting with fun games like “pin the wheel on the tractor” for the little ones.

All of the party goers were treated to tractor rides and a big spread of yummy food, including individual meals for each kid packed in a little basket. A homemade birthday cake boasted a toy tractor cake topper and alternating layers in bright John Deere inspired colors.

Thanksgiving Invitations

I realize Halloween was all of two days ago, but it’s really never too early to think about Thanksgiving, which is only a few weeks away. These pretty Thanksgiving invitations by FINA Art & Paper are available for download through their shop and feature the prettiest combination of clean sans serif type, soft muted fall colors and simple Thanksgiving-inspired illustrations. I love the idea of kicking off the holiday season by sending a pretty invitation to ask your loved ones to you in giving thanks and these are just perfect.
