  • Mother's Day Table Setting

    5/2/2017

    Need to spruce up the table for your Mother's Day Brunch? Here's a little bit about the inspiration behind this gorgeous embroidered silk table runner and placemat set from designer Lonni Rossi.

    Lonni says "Remember all those chores you had to do when you were a kid? Since I was the oldest, one of mine was being in charge of setting and clearing the table every night for dinner. My mom taught me well, since she belonged to the "live life to the fullest" society, and insisted on making every day a special occasion. Her artistic flair came out often, especially when setting a dinner table. Flowers, candles, and a table cover were most always requierd. Keeping that in mind, here is an easy-to-make embroidered table runner and placemats to celebrate all the Moms in your life."

  • Embroidered Tea Bag Holder

    4/27/2017

    What a great Mother's Day gift for the tea lover in your life! Trish says she's "usually pretty good at gift ideas. There are a ton of things I want to buy for people, but usually way out of budget. Over the years I've been doing well with handmade gifts and my ultimate go-to is this tea bag travel wallet.

    It started with needing a gift for my mom. She is an avid tea drinker- like 4-6 cups a day tea drinker. She gave up caffeinated tea a few years ago and has been hooked on only specific kinds of herbal. If you are a tea drinker, you know that most restaurants and diners have unlimited supply of coffee but can really lack when it comes to tea. My mom started carrying her own tea bags wherever she went, in a little plastic baggie. It was obvious she needed a home for her stash.

    I made her a little tea holder, then started getting some requests for more! My sister was next, her tea bag holder was a Christmas gift. I have one in the queue for Drew's sister and decided to make his mom one for Mother's Day!

    This has become such an awesome gift I wanted to share a tutorial so you can make your own- or gift one!
