I Love Handmade Things

I have two exciting, handmade things to share.

First up, I won Katie's giveaway from the blog J&K.  She is extremely talented, and made a cute little clutch that I am swooning over.  She put my adorable gifts in a vintage tin, which is beautiful in itself.  Inside, she included a note, some homemade peanut butter granola (recipe here), and notecards with a matching trinket dish.  Oh Katie, you have no idea how much I love trinket dishes. 

As you can see below, the clutch is adorable, and is going to be heavily used (because something this beautiful cannot simply sit around and be stared at).  Thank you Katie!


My second thing is my beautiful glass pumpkin, made by the talented glass blowers of Avolie Glass on Etsy.  I have been stalking this seller for a while, and when they had a 25% off all items for Mother's Day sale, I couldn't have been more thrilled. 

The way the colors are blended on this pumpkin is just beautiful.  It will have a permanent home on my mantle.
