Love at first sight.
That was truly how I felt when I first laid eyes on Ila Handbags. Nothing short of stunning.
The husband and wife duo that make up Ila Handbags share strong backgrounds in design and branding. Started in 2010 and based in Minneapolis, each of clutch is impeccably handcrafted and a testament to vintage + modern perfection.
Box. Kisslock. Framed. Envelope.
While I'm completely enamored with the chic ready-to-wear designs, my favorite option is the custom clutch. The suggestion of taking your mother's wedding dress, father's shirt or grandmother's sari and creating a truly heirloom piece is genius (and SO meaningful.)

And how happy are these hand-painted bowls. I am so excited about my discovery of The Bocket Store on Etsy! What a great way to end the week...
Sometimes there's nothing better than creating a modern, new look for a vintage piece. Each dot is hand painted with love, no doubt. So fresh and cool. I want one...or two!
Dot. Dot. Dot.
What's old is new again...beautifully.

Another great clutch discovery over at Allisa Jacob's shop on Etsy! Love. Love. Love.
I am smitten with these petite cosmetic bags - and the hand embroidery is divine. All of the charming details -from the fabric to the structure to the impeccable stitching. Adorable.
Allisa Jacobs' shop features custom wedding collections with oodles of colors and variations to choose from...so cute that you are guaranteed a bridesmaid bear hug and a grateful shriek of joy (at least that's what I would do!).
I love that many of the bags are made of fabric that Allisa has designed herself! So cool. So happy to have found Allisa Jacobs on Etsy!

Be still my heart.
A lover of horses and childhood collector of Breyer Horses myself...this is genius. So happy to have found you - Equine by Lauren on Etsy.
Not only are these bookends the perfect accessory for my office...but what wonderful accents to an equestrian-inspired reception!
Centerpieces. Guest Books. Dessert Table. Cocktail Bar. Different breeds, different colors. Endless possibilities. So cool.

I am a pillow fanatic, and when I saw this one from Betsy Jarvis Urban Textiles on Etsy, it reminded me of my favorite wedding gift I received nearly 19 years ago! It was a pillow from my sister very similar to this that said "Happily Ever After." Proof of longevity for a pillow with perfect words.
So happy to have found this...truly, madly, deeply.
