I’d like to introduce you to my my new favorite candle. Glint Candles makes beautiful soy candles by hand. Their list of thoughtful fragrances has something for everyone.
Chris and Lacey were kind enough to send me a one pound ‘Just Chillin’ (Refreshing cucumber and mint with a light infusion of lemon, ylang ylang, spearmint and orange) to try in our home. I checked out their guide to getting the perfect burn and lit it up for it’s first burn while I did some quilting. As you know, we have 2 big dogs. This time of year when the snow gets slushy and the salt is on the sidewalks, they can get a little stinky between baths. This candle quickly masked the doggy smell without being overwhelming. ‘Just Chillin’ is a perfect mix of citrus and herb. It’s fresh and clean and makes the house smell amazing. Soy has some awesome benefits, one being how cleanly it burns which is good for your lungs and your walls.
Glint makes all their candles the old fashioned way, pouring the high quality soy wax in beautiful reusable jars in Santa Barbara, California. Their scent combinations are unique and complex. The jars and containers are beautiful alone too. After cleaning them out the Glint team has a ton of great ideas on how to re-purpose them.

I’ve always wanted to see Woodland by Lydia Meiying in person. What swatch are you sampling?
(PS: Sorry for the short notice on this one! I woke up and saw it and had to share. It’s too good to pass up. I hope you catch it in time to snag a swatch.)
Handmade in France, Submicrocosm is a collection of minimal geometric patterned home goods in a beautiful palette of colors. The porcelain tea goblets and mugs are my personal favorites. Marine’s background in design can easily be seen in the restraint of each piece. This beautiful planter would make a gorgeous Valentines gift with a fern or cactus in it, or as a vase with some fresh flowers. Or give “diamonds” with this Geometric Print in rosy pink.

I have been a fan of Stiksel for years. It’s about time I shared them with you! Handmade in the Netherlands, everything at Stiksel utilizes multiple techniques and vintage graphics and fabrics to make unique quality pieces. I love the passport covers. Karin is always adding new items, so check back to see whats new.

It’s time to hang your stockings! I have such fond memories of hanging up my family’s stockings, especially mine which was embroidered with a reindeer. My grandma had an older woman at her church knit a custom stocking for every kid and grand kid that were hung on their mantle. The girls all had angels with hair and eyes to resemble our likeness. The boys all had nutcrackers on their stockings. They were so kitschy, but make me very nostalgic every December.
If you are just adding a new stocking to your family collection or starting fresh, there are a ton of amazing handmade options out there. Here are a few of my favorites.

Just in time for holiday shopping I’m bringing you a pretty decent sized shop update! I have a stock pile of new jewelry, vintage goods, pom garlands and L&F gear waiting to be photographed. All the jewelry is limited edition. Pom Garlands can be custom made in just about any color or color combination you want. More will be coming throughout the next week and through the weekend. Between my quilt and shop, I’ll be very busy.
For more info on any of the pictured items, please visit the Lost & Fawned Shop.
I’ve already started my holiday shopping since we’ll be leaving town early this year. A few people on my list will be lucky to get some beautiful pieces from Jason Wolff Pottery (sorry to my family for the spoiler, but I can never keep a secret). Jason just collaborated on these gorgeous product photos with Christa (another dear friend of mine) and I love how they turned out. Each and every piece is made by hand here in Ohio. The holidays are a great time to support artisans and craftsmen like Jason. Take a peek at Jason Wolff Pottery on Etsy for more info and ordering.

I have something new and exciting to share today! Jared and I have wanted to collaborate on a project for awhile. It’s been a long time in the making, but I’m ready to share the start of something different for us.
Jared makes cards for me. They are always quirky, original and usually a little (or a lot) late. On the back, where the company logo would usually be located he would write “The Very Late Card Company”. I have kept every one of these cards, and even gave you a peek at one last year. We toyed around with the idea over the last couple of years. Finally we have it moving…
We are still working on the card line. I’m hoping to have a few new pieces printed and ready for the holiday season. The cards are at times a little nerdy (fun fact: Jared and I are both gamers in our down time) and soon will be incorporating not only hand drawn type but illustrations! I’m also hoping to add made-to-order personalized cards and stationary sets very soon! All cards are printed right here in the USA by a small printing company on high quality paper and come with an envelope.
I’m slowing stocking The Very Late Card Company with lots of pretty packaging goodies including washi tape, stamps and ribbon. All are in-stock and ready to ship today! I pack every order myself with love and care and ship them from our home in Ohio.
The ultimate goal is to put all the proceeds (after we recoup starting costs and development of new cards) toward our dream farm.
You can also find TVLCC on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and on our blog. Please take a moment to follow us and if you like what you see, share it! We’re just getting started and we have a lot in the making! Thanks for the support!
One of the best things about fall is all the amazing scents. From apple to cinnamon to spicy chai, and of course pumpkin. “Warm” scents are a personal favorite in our home. Why not treat yourself (or someone else) to something that smells seasonal? Here are some of my picks…
Our anniversary is coming up and I’ve been planning some outfit ideas for a dinner date. I love this little black dress. It has an interesting but modest cut out and a sillhouette that would flatter just about anyone. It has a tough neckline to accessorize though. I selected this gorgeous cuff bangle and simple cup studs to pair it with. Gold is great with black. I’d probably add a kelly green clutch or a patterned shoe to add some volume to the ensemble.
