I'm Nilly, lifelong crafter of whimsical loot and contemporary incarnate of Pippi Longstocking, minus Mr. Nielsen. I love all things cozy, quirky, colorful, free-spirited, well-worn, and ever-so-slightly bent out of shape, and I would live in the Wonderful World of Richard Scarry if I could. The book, not the animated show.
I live in Oregon's Willamette Valley with a rather adorable Irishman and an obsessive-compulsive and conspiratorial cattle dog, which is not unlike living with Wallace and Grommit. Most of my craftiness is inspired by mid-century kitsch, French cinema and decor, kids' storybooks, Oaxacan folk art, Charley Harper, and Mother Nature Herself (which, I'll grant, is an odd conglomeration of stuff to be inspired by). I hope you'll find something in my shop that awakens your inner bowerbird.
