honeycomb + plans


Peeked inside the backyard hive this morning with The Germantown Honeyhound and got this beauty as a souvenir. In other spheres, plotting an awesome fall for my creative writing classes and biking with the Mr. to the fair.

le bracelet '92

Seen on Pinterest.

My fourth-grade self has a major crush on this necklace. I mean, seed beads? Floral sprays? Clearly this was created with my kitten-sweatshirt / stirrup-pant / Keds phase in mind.

tussie-mussie

diy vintage silverware tussie-mussie

Feeling extra ambitious, I bought a set of vintage silverware to make some pretty pendants for my bridesmaids. Seven years ago. Alas.

Last weekend, one table knife fulfilled its destiny and became a necklace version of the traditional tussie-mussie. I've been wearing it all week and feeling especially Victorian. Enjoy this silent tutorial.

i'm a little tea-pod

   
When I saw this amazing tea packaging by a Montreal design student, I went on a caffeine-fueled, paper-crafting rampage to replicate those awesome petal-shaped pods. Most fun project in a while. Sadly, I'm not tech-savvy enough to post the stencil, but I photo'd everything on my sewing tabletop to give a general idea of the dimensions. In sum: LOVE (and also pretty proud of myself for figuring out the design). Enjoy this silent tutorial.
