I’m a sucker for minimal design. I love a natural wood and simple lines. It can get a little boring in home decor, but small trinkets like this little pendant make a big impact to me. I love the juxtaposition of the hard plastic resin against a soft and natural wood. I added a tiny clay mountain in there for good measure.
We moved into our new office about 6 months ago, and sadly it took me awhile to find a way to display cute pictures of my mini. The problem was finding something that would add a little color, and match the reclaimed wood, ruggedness of the rest of the office. Thankfully I finally came up with a solution.
At my house, we have so many types of tea that when it’s offered to guests, they panic from all of the choices. We’re huge believers in the power of a good cup of tea. Whether it’s peppermint for an upset stomach, chamomile to help you sleep, or even just the need for a caffeine jolt, we’ve got you covered. I needed a place to put all of this tea that’s easily accessible to the kettle and pretty. I decided to add a little organization too since we have so many different types.
I’m always on the hunt for a new craft to try out, so when I found a wood burning tool in our offices, I knew I had to heat it up and give it a whirl. I’m loving the geometric design trend that’s taking over the DIY world, so I knew right away what I would be etching into some wood we had in the office. But what to make?
I decided to craft up some coasters because I’m slowly starting to collect real adult furniture that I actually want to protect from my coffee while knitting addiction and my daily ice cold sparkling water. These coasters add a really natural design element which blends right in with my personal style. They’re the perfect useful art piece!
