Ukrainian Embroidery

As a lover of all things bohemian and folksy, I pretty much died when I came across this collection of Ancient Ukrainian Embroidery over on the blog 50 Watts. I followed the link back to the original Picasa album, which is absolutely worth a few minutes of your time. I really don’t know which I prefer more – the bright, angular geos, or the dustier organic floral motifs? It’s so hard… I love them all!

A Rich Tapestry

Here’s one trend we’ve been seeing more and more of recently, particularly in the world of accessories: Tapestry. You might also call it needlepoint, and it overlaps with other closely related terms including cross-stitch and jacquard. The feeling it evokes is very sweet and grandmotherly, which is why I especially appreciate the irony created by those bad-ass Jeffrey Campbell kitty-cat platform boots.
