Patchwork Long Beach Favorites -- Part 2: Rock Scissor Paper, Candles, Stuffies and More

Here are more of my favorites from Patchwork.  This post is chock full of good stuff.  Take a look!

Rock Scissor Paper was there.  That made me happy because they are one of my all time faves.  Like always, I loved perusing their wares.  And seeing these new cuties.  Love, love, love.

Don't forget to visit their blog.  It is one of the first I check every day.

Next up: jewelry.  These were some of my favorites because they were unique.
These are all made by Christine at Chocolate and Steel and I like her designs, don't you?
Isn't that whale adorable?  And the Eames chair?  Totally love it.
I thought these were a unique twist on a child's name.  Put their birth year instead.  She said she could also put their name on the back.
These would also make a sweet present for a bride.
And don't you love that orange felt with the holes?  She said she got it from IKEA long ago, but I wonder if there is a hole punch strong enough to go through felt like that?  If you are a crafty, sewy sort, and know the answer, do share.

I liked these pendants too because they say things like: "she's crafty" and "seriously rad."  
Of course, custom orders are available.
Check out more of her designs here.
Hello candles!  These are from Relight.
You know I have a thing for vintage state glasses, but this is something I have never thought of.
I think it is genius!

And there are many more glasses to choose from besides the state ones.  I also loved that one with the blue flowers at the bottom--very modern looking.  This is a really great idea.

There are a lot of stuffies at craft fairs.  These owls caught my eye. 
So did her penguins and her trees.  
Check out Desiree's Etsy shop to see a few of her adorable creations.

Lastly, I fell in love with these hair clips from Chabuki.

In fact, if you have seen me in the last week and a half, you have probably noticed me sporting the one I bought.  It makes me feel cute and stylish, even when I am just wearing jeans and a tee, which is almost always.  
Each one is different and lovingly made.  Just look at the attention detail on the back of the clip.

You can see her clothes, too at her Esty shop, but not many hair clips.  I am hoping she'll list more because I'd like a whole slew of them.  And some for Lilly too.

So, go, take a gander at all those links.
We're headed out for some cool summer beach camping (seriously, is the sun ever coming out in Southern California?) this weekend, but check in next week for my final wrap up of Patchwork Long Beach.
Happy weekending to you.  Hoping we can all find some sunshine.
Love from,

I found random, mismatched vintage glasses at an antique shop last year, grabbed a few wicks, and poured microwaveable soy wax into them as gifts for all of Mason's teacher. Super easy and ended up costing about $5 each!

Anyhow... this reminded me that I should do that again. Great gift to have on hand for any occasion... if you want to feel "Martha-ish." Love your blog as always!
