Woods of Narnia is a handmade store on etsy.com selling everything from place holders, button, jewlery, and coaster made entirely of wood! We here at The Second Fiddle love wood, and so thought these cozy coasters and such would fit our style. We hope you enjoy the rugged and rustic domestic items.
you see, dear mother, bad posture is not always a negative thing. this fellow looks quite comfortable (A. A. Milne). With the end of the semester approaching, I begin to sit more like Milne here. Ah.. my back.
If you have never read Winnie Ille Pu, I highly recommend reading it out loud. A wonderful Latin read. We were also in an Etsy craft show this week at the St. Louis Contemporary Art Museum. This was our first craft show, it went well, and we saw many familiar faces. more on this later.
This is the most wonderful of videos. I saw these brothers on the selby awhile ago, and now I am even more amazed. The Mast Brothers enjoy creating chocolate and also enjoy sailing. Their chocolate is handmade and unique, as is their building. As I watched this video, I could not help smiling. enjoy...
Our new treasury list featuring all things earthy, organic, vegan, or green. The name for this treasury came from a darling cafe in St. Louis called Local Harvest that uses all locally grown ingredients. Their Morganford Mediterranean sandwich is worthy of great praise.
See the entire treasury of naturally colored and made items here.
Holly (the artist behind gollybard) is an amazing creator. She creates watercolor paintings of nature, insects, birds, and much more. She sells her paintings on Etsy and her work has been used in other sellers jewelry work (for example: this rustic lamb and fence magnetic locket by polarity)
Not only does Holly have great talent but a great heart. With every sell from her Heart collection, she donates $5 to So Others Might Eat, a organization in the City of Washington who helps the poor and homeless.
gollybard was also a featured seller on Etsy! Read interview here.
We have returned from a trip to northern California. The redwood trees were quite dazzling. While we were hiking in Muir Woods, we received inspiration for this woodland hooded scarf (now listed on The Second Fiddle). John Muir (for whom the scarf and national park is named) was an amazing naturalist who aided in the conservation of the redwoods. we've even started a flickr group (Rustic and Rugged) in honor of John Muir, Jeremiah Johnson, and all the mountain men, lumberjacks, and rugged men.
