LIT Decor

In the South, mason jars are a bit ubitquitous so it's nice to see when an artist finds a way to reinvent them. Vanessa Cline of Cary, North Carolina has created some really beautiful and unique variations that are worth a look...

Inspired by Moroccan decor details and henna patterns, Vanessa crafts a myriad of candle holders, vessels and lanterns for the home. All of her creations, found in her LIT Decor Etsy shop, are perfect additions for a porch or favorite windowsill and can be hardwired for indoors too. 

Every lantern is made from upcycled jars and every design, done by hand, is one of a kind. They are also hand washable and able to withstand the wind and rain.

I especially like her hand painted vases and the playful, pretty creations listed under the category, New Designs. Vanessa's shop actually has well over 200 items to choose from so it's worth checking out. Can't hurt to add one more mason jar to the collection, right?

Wit & Whistle goodness...

One of my favorite stationery shops is Wit & Whistle, which I've featured before on Sweet Peach. Every time I check out Amanda Wright's shop, I see new things to admire...and share. I especially like her venturing into the world of pretty tea towels.

Her 30" x 30" flour sack tea towels are silk screened with her own hand drawn designs. And the best part is the towels get softer and more absorbent with use. 

New to her shop are these lovely pillow covers. Amanda designs them and her mom sews each and every one. I love that. 

Amanda's talents truly shine in her stationery line. Her Snail Mail notecards are beautifully designed and as sweet as pie...


Amanda offers over 50 cards and over a dozen jotter notebooks. It's the kind of shop where you'll want to buy a bunch of items and then use them as needed throughout the year. 

And seeing how Easter is less than a couple weeks away, I thought this holiday card was apropos. And so cute.
