cozy up

There's a shop on Etsy that sells cableknit cozies for your home: a knit ottoman, little knit legwarmers for sofa legs, and even an entire cableknit slipcover for a chair!  That's the kind of cozy home decor that looks very appealing right now, with the rainy, blustery, cool fall weather we've had in western Michigan.  

And this shop preview is full of similar cozies: coats, wool, and sweaters galore.

  1. I'm so in love with the kitty sleep set!

  2. I am making serious eyes at that black with white polka dots dress!

  3. Could you please send me details on the 70's folklore sweater vest before you put it in the shop?? Price/size. <3 it!

  4. What am I going to do with you? First you post about Miss Marple and her tweeds, which puts me off on a major tweed tangent, and now I'm inspired by the super green buffalo plaid.

    That Givenchy for Talbott line was done in 1955, I believe (will double check notes...).

  5. olygirl--I'll let you know when I have all the info for it ready. I don't usually do measurements, etc. until I'm ready to list.

    Lizzie--It *is* 1955. You know how I know? I read your post about it at VFG. :)

  6. Oh my gosh KAREN! That little kitten knit set is just as you say, INSANELY CUTE. Lemme know when you list it!
