Cotton Rope Bowls & Trivets

I stumbled on these lovelies awhile back while in Austin & am thrilled to finally add them to our product line. The Foxes Tail is an Austin based small business specializing in creating sustainable products through upcycling & using made in the USA materials whenever possible. I love that about them! Several of their bowls have found homes around our house & I smile whenever I lay my eyeballs on them. Upon first glance, they appear to be home decor from another time. Vintage if you will. Yet, they are newly made & are versatile enough to fit in any modern day kitchen & home. Use the trivet as an actual trivet or turn it into a wall hanging. The fabric wrapped bowls & trivets are vibrant & unique. There is no right or wrong here. Use them any way you please. Just use them! Turquoise Fabric Wrapped Cotton Rope Bowl Continue reading Cotton Rope Bowls & Trivets

New Soy Candles in the house!

Candles like incense are an important part of Home Decor in our home. I find the right candles to be an integral finishing touch to a space whether it be a cozy nook or a high traffic area. They can certainly elicit feelings of serenity for me. Plus, smell is such a big part of the whole experience. This new candle line from Stylish Rustic Living, an Austin area 100% organic soy candle line has me feeling happy. I get really excited to light these lovelies up & let the fragrant, but not over-powering scents transport me to feeling relaxed & content to be at home. Nice & cozy…

Oak Moss 8 oz Soy Candle Tin

Fall Leaves 8 oz Soy Candle Tin

The candle tins can be re-purposed to hold treasures or to even hold jewelry when you take a trip. Pop some earrings, bracelets, necklaces in your toiletry bag & Ta-Da! Off you go! I like the look of them too. The tins can easily co-mingle among contemporary, eclectic, rustic & coastal decor. As for the glass jar, it reminds me of the days when I was a kid & milk was delivered to my grandparents front door in glass jars. They are beautiful & you can turn them into flower vases once you have burned the candle.

Funny & sarcastic, yet heartfelt ceramic Planters & Mugs

I have a cabinet full of beautiful, fancy pants mugs, but I usually drink my coffee from the same small rotation. This $16 mug is definitely in the rotation and holds about 2 cups of coffee. I measured just for you guys. It’s a substantial pour and I enjoy holding the handle while cradling the opposite side, as I bring the hot steaming mug up to my coffee addicted lips. It’s precious to me people and I’m heartfelt about my feelings.


Visit the website to see another funny, sarcastic and heartfelt mug for yourself or for the people in your life. We all need mugs to survive people.

Leather Cord Holder handmade in Austin

I found this Austin based handmade item by accident while searching for some holiday gifts last December. I immediately purchased a few, took them home & proceeded to grab my loose electronic ear bud cords to try this jobber out. I love it!

Who has the time or desire to wind the cord up & wrap it within itself to make it look nice & neat? Not moi. It irritates me. I also don’t like having my cord full of knots. Again, call me quirky. This takes a few quick seconds to wrap around 4 fingers & then sit inside the leather holder, button it & TA DA… Done!

The cord holder is big enough to spot if you forget where you left your cord too! I forget frequently where I left mine & white really blends in when you need to find them in a hurry. You need this people.

Black & White Marbled Incense Holder

I am an Incense lover & grew up with the old boring wooden incense holders. Only thing is, I don’t like looking at them unless I am actually burning incense. They aren’t exactly nice to look at. Call me quirky.

This beautiful incense holder from a ceramic designer in Austin is purdy & tres elegant! This is a must own for all of you incense lovers. I display mine in a spot where I can easily admire it. Whenever I walk by it… I wanna burn some incense people.

Hand-Painted Rocks from Arkansas

A friend from high school has a passion for rock collecting. A married mother of 4, Carmen’s passion goes way back to her childhood. She hand picks creek rocks because of their smoothness & the many choices in shapes. I fell in love with her beautifully painted rocks with positive quotes & asked her to paint some for Laudrey Rose. The illustrations & appropriate quotes are from her. All of the silly & sarcastic quotes are from me!

These beauties are from the earth & are perfect to display in all settings around your home. Unique, handmade, clever & truly inspirational by CJ.
