2 trick (stitch) pony?

(click image to enlarge)

I was flipping through the tv channels one night and came across a lady talking about Tunisian crochet a.k.a. Afghan crochet so I decided to investigate. I purchased some long crochet hooks on Etsy and gave it a go. It took me much longer to do than single crochet but I love the tight woven look! I'd like to see some fiberfill try to squeeze through those stitches!

I feel like flying to the UK...

to bring back some more enamelware!

My parents just bought me a washer and dryer as a gift so I've been hunting for a cute container to hold laundry soap.

Look at this simple and beautiful thing-

and this container below would be awesome to store shoemaking tools!

You can find these containers HERE.

Now that I think about it, I always bring back metal housewares when I visit Europe.

One day I will take some pics of my metal collection and post it.

Still on the laundry note, look at the retro packaging on this laundry powder-

I am definitely a sucker for nice packaging.

Korean cloth tape

I spy cloth tape in NYC! I've been drooling over cloth tape on Etsy for about a year or more and finally find some while shopping around here. I found the red ones at the new Paper Source location in Brooklyn and I found the yellow plaid and brown stripes at Kate's Paperie last night in Soho.

I'm still eyeing the navy blue stripes and the red and blue one though!
