Holiday Love: Cozy Textures Edition

I think I'm on a cozy, texture-rich kick now that the temps have dropped, so this week's holiday picks are all on that theme. While you may not think a footstool is a sexy gift, I think this one is the one to change your mind! With a fiance who loves a good foot rest, I have come to appreciate really well designed ones, and I love the patchwork on this version from Kim and Leanne of the Black Strap on Etsy. It's all handmade using vintage materials and I love the mix of textures and patterns.

My second pick this week are these upcycled Sweater Owls from my new friend Sarah (who proved that those who work in magazines all wind up knowing each other at some point- we have a load of friends in common!). I LOVE her tiny sweater owls and am so excited that she gifted me with one recently. It's hanging on the door to my office so I can see it all the time. Sarah is a super talented designer with mad crafty skills and a penchant for jumping in museums. Check out her blog here.

And really, I can hardly contain my joy for these little Booties Made For Walking from Lena in Tel Aviv on etsy. I love the color combination and the crocheted texture. It's a good thing I don't have more friends with babies or otherwise I'd be broke from buying the lot of these! Check out the rest of her store for more booties, and other crocheted goodies.

Enjoy the weekend all and thanks for letting me share, as always.

P.S. Happy Birthday Dad!
