Did you see some of the lovely new things from Lotta Jansdotter? Oh they are really pretty… Try to control yourself. Or not. :) I love her new coasters, potholders, and the little owl bag.
Speaking of bags, I really like her collection of them, in all shapes and sizes. I own several and they not only look great, but they last forever and seem to go with my usual spring/summer attire, which is mostly casual – skirts, flats, jeans, tees, and lots of natural fibers like cotton and linen. The muted colors, soft patterns, and great big handles on her shoulder bags really appeal to me. Then, there’s the mini ones that she creates. Isn’t that little elephant above so adorable? The little bags are perfect for tucking in some gorgeous letterpress stationery and a box of chocolates or tea for gifting a dear friend. They’re also handy to stash things in around the house, from clothespins to makeup, extra silverware (keep them inside on a peg in your pantry), etc. I can’t wait to see if she adds more to her collection this year – fingers crossed, she’ll expand her ceramics line. I’d love to see mugs, plates, and serving dishes!
