One of my favorite blogs, Frolic, has a new sponsor called oktak, and I’m smitten by the pretty bright colors of their coin purses and clutches. They also offer eye glass cases and handbags. I’m not a clutch girl usually, but these might convert me, especially for carrying to a Sunday spring brunch with my bestest ladies. They have TONS of colors and patterns. For my collage above I picked out six that were “so very Amber”. I kind of want them all.
Kimberly Pye, who is super awesome, sent me some homemade dishtowels that arrived today, and I’m jealous of her “mad skillz”. I’m tempted to let Rob’s mom teach me, but “learning how to knit in the Blatt family” comes with lots of scary yelling. Rob’s mom, her sister-in-law and Rob’s grandma all sit together at family gatherings with their different projects so they can “help” each other, but in the end, it winds up with a bunch of “What the heck are you doing?!” and “Give me that! You’re ruining it!” and “Oy! You’re making me meshuggah!”
I don’t think I’m ready for all that.
Thank God for friends that knit. I like using dishcloths instead of sponges because they hold soap better, last longer, and I don’t have to throw them away after a month or so like I would with a sponge. They’re cute AND eco-friendly! Plus I love the cheerful colors.
According to the note she included with them, the red one is crocheted and the rest are knitted. Buy yours here, in her Etsy shop: Nifty Homemade Thingies.
