New Silk Curtain are up for sale in the Etsy shop! 

They blocks are inspired by the skyline and adornments on buildings in the city of London. The patterns are twisted and twirled around on the fabric to give the design a contemporary edge. 

I can't wait to go back and design more products using silk. It was exciting and surprising to see the results of the natural dyes on silk fabric.

We'd like to see you again.

Tis the time for a jolly jolly day.

Christmas is almost here and what better way to prepare yourself for the joyous holidays by stopping by at The Creek and the Cave to check out the food and say hello to the local vendors.

We hope you can stop by at our table to see what we have to offer and to say hello.

See you next weekend!

Sewing madness

I seem to have just discovered the fun of using a sewing machine and just cannot stop. Sorry to ruin the surprise, but my friends, you're only getting homemade bags sewn by me this year for your birthdays. :) I know, contain  your happiness. This is just the beginning. Muhahaha..




All of them made from waste fabric I had lying around. :) Go Upcycling.

Wish List

Stepanka Horalkova's ceramics are going on my wish list for when I have money.
The ceramic pieces are so simple, yet fun to have around you. I so want the cups with the little birdies.

Textile Jewelry

Take a look at Paz Sintes Textile jewelry collection. It is to die for. The necklaces and bracelets are made out of crocheted threads and they are the most delicate pieces of jewelry I have ever seen. They feel and look just right on a person. She was recently selling at the Columbus Craft Fair and I had to share her stuff with everyone.
