The El Cosmico Shop...

The one southern city I really want to visit is Marfa, Texas. I'm always reading about it and I love the idea of driving out to the desert, far away from home, shutting off my cell phone and getting lost under the stars at El Cosmico. I will stay in one of their amazing yurts one day. And now, come to find out they have a gift shop featuring lots of amazing artisans. Even better...

A devout fan of colorful blankets, I can't help but love these beauties made of South American wool- each and every one unique from the other in both pattern and size. 

The shop is, as you'd expect, full of color with a hip, retro feel. Goods include apparel, jewelry and camping gear. See their entire shop, here, or better yet, take a trip to this west Texas desert town. Disconnect, discover, reflect...then go shopping.

Most people could use more pillows in their life. I'm certainly a candidate, which is why I'm a fan of mother and daughter team Erin and Janelle Charles. Through their online shop, Local Produce, based in Atlanta, they craft pretty pillows and textiles - the kind that make you want to order about a dozen or so...


Erin, "We want to help you create a space that is aesthetically pleasing but is also comfortable and inviting; a place where you can entertain and make others feel at home." Their blue geometric pillow is one of my favorites...

Erin and Jennell's best sellers are the Stag pillow and the Thomas Paul Tree pillow. Sizes offered are 20x20, 14x18 and 12x18. 

A herringbone wool blanket is hard not to love- especially this black and white one lined with black camel hair. As shared on their site, "It is heaven. It is soft and luxurious and rich." 

Their second blanket option combines a mixed green wool with an army green camel hair. As today is a particularly cold day in the South, I really could use one of these classy, cozy throws right about now... 


In their shop, you'll find a mix of classic, print and geometric pillows- and even some leather ones too. Erin, "We love meshing unexpected prints and textiles together to create something truly unique." 

Look for some Christmas stockings in their shop soon too. You can buy them as is or as always, request any pillow, blanket or stocking to be made with your favorite fabrics and textures. Check out the entirety of their shop to add more pretty pillows and textiles to your life, here.
