Welcome to living an embellished life!

I love texture in just about anything, be it paper, fabric, whatever! My favorite thing to do is to browse yarn, paper and fabric shops.

If it twinkles, winks, is lavishly embroidered and otherwise embellished, it's a must, and ends up here. I hope you share my obsession. If not, well, now's a good time to start!

It's a lot to look at, I know. Have a cup/glass of whatever you need to (coffee, wine) and browse to your heart's content; it's going to take a hot minute, but I'm sure you'll find something you'll love and can't do without :)
