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.
It’s no secret that I love anything with natural woodgrain. I’m infatuated with Workerman knives and accessories. A beautiful handcrafted pocket knife would make a great heirloom piece. The knives are limited editions and are currently out of stock, but more should be available soon. Check out Workerman for more products and info.

I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite clutch. Recently I was contacted by Mezay of Corals + Nuts to check out her new collection of handmade clutches and pouches. The entire collection is gorgeous but I decided to try out the metallic gold leather foldover clutch.
When it arrived (and it arrived quickly, even though it came all the way from India!) I fell head over heels. This clutch is gorgeous. It’s beautifully made and feels like luxury. The leather is so soft and has the prettiest soft metallic sheen. It has a small pocket on the inside to keep your phone or lipstick easy to find. It’s so roomy! And I love that you can carry it as a full sized pouch, or as a foldover clutch. It would be great in a travel bag too to hold electronics or a delicate piece of clothing.
This clutch is so versatile! For day it’s perfect for toting an Ipad to a meeting over coffee. For night, fold it in half for a roomy clutch that is big enough to hold your phone AND a full sized wallet (no more digging out your ID and cards out to fit them in a teeny handbag). Metallics are a great way to add some texture to an outfit too. Since it’s a neutral, you can pair it with just about any color combination.
Check out the full collection over here. She has a wide range from simple colorblocked totes (in your choice of colors) to shimmery sequined clutches. She also carries beautiful vegan leather clutches and pouches.
Mezay is also give Lost & Fawned readers 20% off at Corals + Nuts! Looking for a way to treat yourself or have a slew of summer weddings to attend? This is a perfect time to purchase the perfect bag! Just use the discount code LOSTANDFAWNED20 when you check out in her shop.

Texture and unique stone selection set Andrea Bonelli Jewelry apart from the pack. Andrea makes each and every piece with her own two hands. From one-of-a-kind gemstone rings to delicate initial necklaces, it’s the perfect place to find meaningful gifts as well as treats for yourself that may someday become heirlooms.

I actually own a pair of Woodland & Tale foxes. I don’t have little ones to share them with, they just sit quietly on my shelf and guard my book collection. Kate’s handmade stitched animals are truly works of art. Her attention to detail and passion are evident in the faces of each little critter. Visit Kate’s shop to see more plush friends as well as her collection of nature inspired accessories.

We have been collaborating for over a year over at Cotton & Brass. It’s been a blast, but we have been staging these photoshoots out of our own pockets. In order to grown and continue we decided to do a seasonal Pop-Up Shop everyone so often. Our first one launched this week. The Cotton & Brass Spring Shop is packed with vintage jewelry, paper goods, ceramics, fabric bundles and so much more. Lots of beautiful and unique mother’s day items. All of it was styled and selected by the Cotton & Brass team and photographed by Christa Kimble. All profits go toward recovering costs from past photoshoots and growth and new shoots in the future.
Items are very limited! So purchase while they are still available! Visit the Cotton & Brass Spring Pop-Up Shop today!
It’s here! For weeks now I’ve been teasing on my facebook about a big giveaway. Finally I’m ready to share the full prize package with you and show off some of my newest favorite handmade brands.
Spring is here and now that many of us can open the windows and let in some fresh air, it’s a great time to get your home spring-ready. You might already have some store-bought brands you love, but I wanted to share some handmade essentials and extras to add to your arsenal this year.
The natural place to get cleaning is in the kitchen. Let’s start with the basics. I’ve tried a lot of sponges and scrubbers and I’m blown away with these handmade scrubbers from Kari Creates. They are durable, large and they get the job done. And the neon red is right on trend for spring and summer.
I have a weak spot for tea towels. I have tons. When selecting prizes for this giveaway I knew we had to have this tea towel from 618 Love. I love the cheeky quote (“Experiment In Progress: Please Do Not Disturb The Dust”). Perfect for drying dishes and cute enough to hang on your stove. What’s not to love?
Lets move to sink essentials. Every kitchen sink needs a great hand soap. Sure you can just use your dish soap, but why not pamper your hands after scrubbing the stove top or planting spring sprouts. Lemon is one of the freshest smells in the world to me and this Meyer Lemon hand soap from Eucyalpto Organics is so clean and bright. And it makes my hands feel clean and healthy.
Another bonus for your kitchen sink comes from Zinnia Designs. Growing up, I remember my grandma always taking off her rings before working in the kitchen and putting them in a cute china dish by her sink. This chickadee ring bowl is just the right size to keep on a shelf or windowsill to keep your rings safe while you prep food for the grill this summer or wash fresh veggies from the garden.
And now for some fun extras to get you in the cleaning and organizing mood.
To get myself in the cleaning mood on my days off, I like to open the windows, turn on some music and put on my trusty apron. This striped apron from Meyer Textile Company is so gorgeous in person. It’s perfect for women and men. You could use it while harvesting in the garden or dusting the bookshelves.
Spring is the perfect time to get organized too. Why not dress up your canisters and jars with these cute chalkboard labels from Image Fountain Designs. They come ready to stick to any surface and are great for kitchens, playrooms and even closets. The possibilities are endless.
Spicy candles are so warm in winter and fall, but when warmer weather rolls around, I like something that smells clean. This Clean Cotton candle from Recyclights smells like clean laundry with hints of floral and citrus notes. I’ve been using it in our living room where the dogs like to hang out and watch walkers.
And don’t forget to get yourself cleaned up for summer! Lady Gatsby has offered a pair of products from her shop to help get you ready. The Cranberry body scrub is perfect to exfoliate your winter skin and get it glowing before it’s sundress weather. And the Tigerlilly Soap is so feminine and floral.
