Entries in needlepoint (2)


a lovely being + etsy

Sometimes, I go a little overboard when I go antiqueing. And by a little, I mean a lot. I'd like to blame it on Kansas City for being such a thrifting goldmine, but the truth is that I've been doing this for years! My little studio apartment is practically bursting at the seams with vintage goods and so I've decided to start an Etsy shop to pass these treasures onto you. Above are a few choice offerings from a lovely being boutique. Each item listed on the site was hand-selected simply because I was drawn to it. I had a lot of fun with styling and setting up the store front, and I can only hope that you take a peek. I'll be adding more pieces (lord knows my apartment needs it) in the next few weeks. If you'd like, drop a line - I'd love to hear what you think! 

above: vintage dalmation figurine, yellow and cream striped vintage vase, vintage needlepoint accent pillow, pair of heavy brass vintage pelican bookends, vintage basketweave ceramic pitcher, painted malachite and brass jewelry box  


a stitch in time saves nine

I've been affixiated with needlepointing ever since Jonathon Adler put it back on the radar a few years ago. It wasn't until I saw this photo of Renegade Handmade's In Stitches Showcase that I realized how chic a cross stitch sampler would look hung on a wall! I'm head-over-heels in love with this Mr. Darcy sampler and this silhouette sampler from etsy dealer thetimeisnow.
