lorcom lane design

an interesting booth caught our eye at the ivy market a couple weeks back. lorcom lane design, a local richmond collaborative, was selling some stunning handmade items. napkins, runners, coasters, pillows and blankets lined their booth. all beautifully constructed with exciting patterns that you don't usually see. we're hoping that we'll have a chance in the future to highlight them in the shop, but until then, visit their etsy site to see more. perfect gifts for the holidays. enjoy! k&m

etsy love...

you'll just have to bear with me. only 3 weeks left until the newest openhouse family member arrives and i just can't help having baby on the brain. came across these amazing blankets from the long thread on etsy. she primarily sells embroidery designs for machine embroidery, but these few blankets she has online are just insanely cute (and reasonable). for someone with no craft talent whatesoever, the finished product is what i'm looking for! enjoy! and happy shopping! k&m
