A Frilling Birthday Gift


Aurelia gave me a lovely handmade gift for my birthday:

… this gorgeous woodwork vase with resin inlay from BDJ Craftworks in Austin.  I LOVE it.  She totally has me figured out, cause this is just the sort of thoughtful handmade gift I will love for years to come.

See the resin inlay? I think it’s so cool.

Here’s their Etsy shop if you’re interested in checking out more of their wares.  Thanks, Sista!

A Frilling Gift Idea: 3 Seams


My friend Ellie sent me a link to this shop, 3 Seams. They sell little girls’ dresses that are handmade by seamstresses in Haiti.  Each time a dress is purchased, an identical one goes to a little girl in Haiti in need of clothing. Check out their mission.

3 Seams was begun by Inga as a way to put her faith into action and teach her own children to have a global perspective and awareness.  I think her mission is pretty cool, not to mention the dresses are adorable, made of bright, fun fabrics. As the child grows, the dress can be worn as a top over jeans or leggings.

If you’re searching for a gift for a little lady in your life, head on over to 3 Seams.  You’ll be supporting an awesome organization and helping provide for another little girl who might not otherwise have a chance to wear a FRILLING little dress.
