Tool Candy

I’m in a mad rush today to get things ready for the QUiD Fall 2010 Preview next week. What? I forgot to tell you about it? Well consider yourself invited to Collected Thread, the evening of Friday, August 13th to see some new goods we’re putting together for fall!

Now, onto my find of the day. I’m a sucker for tools and gadgets that pull double duty by being pretty, too. So I just had to share the new line of tools from designer Cynthia Rowley. I love that there is more than just a hammer included in these sets. That staple gun? Be still my home-repair heart!

Sometimes I wish I were a mother so I could get presents like these! Haha…just kidding! I actually love getting gifts for people and moms are always fantastic to buy for. Here are some of my favorite Etsy finds for Mom.

A Very Vintage Gift Guide

I love all things vintage. I could spend DAYS on the hunt for the perfect vintage accessory. I use reclaimed baubles to make all sorts of lovelies. Finding that perfect pair of vintage boots makes my heart beat fast. In fact, if all I got for Christmas was a box full of old beads, lace, clothes…junk, I would be a pretty happy girl.

So why not give a little retro this season?
