Site for Sore Eyes: Erika Rax Blog

Erika Rax BlogI stumbled across Erika Rax over on instagram (or was it Pinterest) and then after liking about 50 of her grams/pins, made my way over to her blog. Within a minute or two of landing on her site I had no less than 5 of her recipes bookmarked to try. I mean Salted Caramel Swirl Marshmallows…come on! Of course any good recipe post is accompanied by images that make you salivate, and Erika’s blog has those in spades too. You’re gonna want to skip on over and see for yourself! | ERIKA RAX BLOG

Site for Sore Eyes: Oh My Little Dears


I came across the gorgeous Oh My Little Dears site via Pinterest last week, and was instantly smitten. Blogger Amanda has one of the keenest eyes for color I’ve come across in a long while, and her charming DIY projects and snippets of her crafty life will have you pinning like a fiend! No joke!


But don’t just take my word for it…skeddadle on over and see for yourself! Don’t forget to say a friendly “howdy-do” while you’re there too. xo Ez

In Praise of Karen Barbé…Again

karenbarbetextileriaI have loved the inventive work of textile artist Karen Barbé for ages (you can find my first post about her work, here). The thoughtful way she creates her work by hand is beyond inspiring. Her latest collection of wares (totes, aprons, and tea towels) is both gorgeous to look at and wallet-friendly…so I couldn’t wait to share them with you all today. Don’t you just love what she creates?! Karen’s blog (both in Spanish and English) is also not to be missed. Visit the Karen Barbé shop here.
