New Bird Houses by Dan Carmichael

When we went to the ACRE show in Philadelphia in February, we stopped by Dan Carmichael’s booth. We already carry his magnetic chalk boards, garden stakes and photo frames. But he had something new. A bird house shaped from a license plate. So I went home and found a Montana plate for him to use and he created some great Montana bird houses.

Each one is a little different as they all have different beads and the petals are all cut by hand. The bird house comes apart easily so it can be cleaned each year. Wouldn’t a bird just love to live here?

Beego Handmade Cards

A Little Crazy Around Here

It got a little crazy around The Purple Pomegranate last week. We were closed for a makeover. It did take all week, we repainted, added a couple of “feature” walls and did a massive spring cleaning.

Here are a few photos if you haven’t been able to stop in and see the transformation.

We also got in a new order from JF Jones Mobiles and this is a new one, the oak leaf. We also have aspen and maple leaf mobiles. They really brighten up a room with the shiny copper leaves.

Sugarpost is in the House!

We are starting to get in our orders from the new artists that we found when we went to Philadelphia to the ACRE Wholesale Show. Sugarpost creates some wonderful metal art that is according to their Facebook page “reactionary, whimsical and pretty much irreverently awesome”.  And I have to agree. It’s really fun. If you aren’t the person to put pink flamingos and garden gnomes in your yard, here’s your alternative!

Spring Mittens!

I know it’s spring and most people aren’t thinking about mittens. But here in Montana, we still have some cold weather and these Woolflower mittens are so fun, we sell them year round.

These are called Prairie and they are perfect for those spring days when it’s still too cold to go without hand cover.

And I love the color of this pair, Earth. Wouldn’t they brighten up your day?

Eco Printed Pillows by Paula Rindal

I have shown you Paula Rindal’s eco printed framed artwork before but now she is making pillows.

Each one is unique and they come in a variety of colors and sizes.

She uses different leaves for the printing process and a variety of natural dyes.

Some are in brighter colors which would add a spot of color to your room.

But most are great neutrals which would go in almost any home. Do you need some new pillows? Come in and check them out.

Bright Colorful Boxes from Heartwood Creations

We got in a new kind of secret boxes from Heartwood Creations.

New Order from Makeshift Accessories

We got a new order from Makeshift Accessories and I wanted to show you the harness cuffs because they are really cool.

All their work is done with recycled materials and these are perfect for those of you who like a wide cuff with an industrial feel.

Or you could come try on one of the new spoon rings. Great textures from the original flatware from which they are created. Come in and take a look!

New from Basic Spirit

We just received an order from Basic Spirit and I ordered some fun, new stuff this time around.

Basic Spirit makes pewter accessories and we got sets of napkin rings. These come in a set of four and their boxed, so they would make a great gift for a housewarming or even a wedding present.

Then we got these great serving utensils. Who doesn’t need a pair of moose salad servers? And the pie or cake servers are great too.

So I’ll leave you with this little pill box and a smile!

New Socks from The Sock Lady!

We just got in a new order of socks, mittens and fingerless mittens from Sol Mate Socks. And, drum roll please, there is a new color of socks for 2017 called Freesia.

Centipede Mug Anyone?

Karin Lamb’s pottery is always very popular. Earthstones Pottery is the name of her little one woman show and every time we get her work in the shop, it flies off the shelves. She usually puts a variety of Northwest animals on the pottery but this last shipment we got a centipede mug. I thought you might like to see it.

Ceramics, Karin Lamb, Earthstone Studio

Isn’t it fun? So if you need a mug to celebrate the new year, why not a centipede mug? Happy New Year to all of you and thanks for making 2016 a great year!
