For most of us, the winter months drag on with not much sunlight and we easily over consume every carbohydrate we see to help with hibernation. Growing up in Michigan, I know a thing or two about a lack of vitamin D and serious craving for summer days during these dreary days. Today’s post if for all of you summer craving individuals that need a fresh new look for the upcoming warm weather. How incredible are these handwoven hammocks and hanging seats made from a family of artisans in Masaya, Nicaragua? I was searching the web for my company BASH Event Design and came across Veronica Colindres. She is a california native but moved to her parents homeland where her family has traditionally gained its income from creating beautiful Hammocks. Both her parents, siblings and herself are involved in the process, carefully putting together each hammock by hand.

I came across these unique upcycled vintage homewares from UK based Tvonne Ellen. The vodka and whiskey tea cups are too cool of a gift for a bachelorette party, wedding shower, or birthday. I love the idea of having two plates relate in design as shown with the giraffe and shark.
UUMM….words cannot even describe the cuteness. These neon pink, green and gold cuckoo clocks are a vintage find from Etsy sold by Gallivanting Girls vintage shop. Gallivanting Girls is a vintage market featured on the likes of One Kings Lane and mega style blog, Design Sponge.
I am always looking for art prints for many different projects and was introduced to La Paperie & Print Shop. Kaitlin Rebesco started this pop up art shop a year ago upon returning to the States after studying photography in Paris. Her goal is to make original pieces of art accessible to a wider audience, with photographs ranging from $12 – $65. She sells images of Paris as well as other cities including New York, where she currently is based.
I am constantly on different websites trying to find the most unique items to get my readers to think outside of the box for their home. I am a HUGE fan of ETSY. They have so many unique items by artists all over the world. I could spend hours looking through the array of creative items. Today I thought I would blog about a few of my favorite items for a chic nursery. I have noticed a lot of people have been messaging me on my Facebook page asking for cute ideas for your new bundle of joy. Here are a few great items you could incorporate with any ideas you have for your nursery. If you click on the link you will notice that many items come in different styles and colors. I definitely recommend Etsy for cute unique baby decor items.
