Woven Wall Hangings are a thing. If you don’t believe me, look at these pictures.

Cute, don’t you think? A little rustic, a little sophisticated, and, a lot unpretentious.

It is not easy to find the perfect piece to decorate your wall. Pictures are obviously a good start, but you need to add other kinds of decorations to spice your home up. At least, that is why I like to do. A woven or macramé wall hanging is a great place to start. They are trending, they are beautiful, they can use a lot of wall space, and, they add texture to your home, which is something so many of us forget to do.

So, in my search for beautiful things around the web, I decided to look on my best shopping friend website, Etsy, where I found a lot of shops with beautiful handmade wall hangings, as expected.

Here are my favorite shops, if you know of another one, let me know! I would love to hear. A lot of these shops will customize a wall hanging to your needs, in case you want something more specific.

Of course, if you are up for a challenge, you can do your own woven wall hanging. Here is how.

Now, to that shop list:

What I See A Lot On Pinterest – Teepee In The Nursery

Are you a mother of a small child or soon to be one? Well, then you better have a teepee in your nursery or you should go and buy one right about now if you want your nursery to be featured anywhere else than your personal Facebook page. Right now, it is all about Native American décor with a twist (what I call gentrifying Native American art). Just type nursery in your Pinterest account and 90% of the pictures will have some kind of teepee in a corner.

jestcafe.com---Teepee-4

What is the attraction of the teepees? Well, kids love hiding and parents love when they do, so it is a win, win situation, unless the child wants you to crawl into that tiny space and read him/her some books in a very uncomfortable position, in which case you should bring up your old age, and explain in basic words why your back pain kicks in when laying on the floor in any yoga position. After one minute of explanation, your child WILL give up (I have tried it). He or she will decide that it is more fun to go inside the teepee by him/herself (or with sibling in tow) than hearing all that aging nonsense.

So, there you go, I am not only giving you great design advice, but I am also giving you clear guidelines to be a better parent, all in one blog spot. Small steps, people. Small steps.

If you are a hardcore DIY, first, let me say that I admire you and wish to be like you, and, second, let me show you this extremely cute teepee with a link to a step by step guide that will show you how to create it all by yourself. When done, please, send pictures my way. I would love to see it and envy you some more.

Vintage Jest Cafe Store Is Open For Business On Etsy and Ebay

My Etsy and Ebay shops are open for business! Those who know me, know I am always searching for treasures in Estate Sales, Garage Sales, Thrift Stores and Flea Markets! I have always loved beautiful things and I love spotting a forgotten treasure – so I thought I could make a small business out of this obsession of mine, hence, the Vintage Jest Cafe Store was born! Check out these cool things on Etsy, and, if you like anything, please, don’t forget to press “favorite” to my shop or item. I will be forever grateful and in debt for your wonderful support.

I am starting to figure all this “Etsy” stuff out, but something I learned already is that not everything I want to list can be listed on Etsy (you can only sell handmade or vintage items in there), so I had to create an Ebay shop for other newer and still beautiful finds. Here is my Ebay store, in case you want to look at it. There are some chairs in there that are a TOTAL steal.

Now, it does give me a little bit of anxiety to sell some of these cute things because I LOVE them so much. Like the yellow chairs, or the oil painting, or the framed bird prints with pink matte. The bird prints give me special anxiety because they are supposed to be for my future daughter’s nursery that exists in my dreams, but the truth is that I am not about to have another child (sad thoughts for me) or, even if I have one, he won’t be a girl, so, why keep on hoarding beautiful things when I can sell them and go and buy MORE beautiful things with the profits! Sounds like heaven to me, and a good excuse to get out of my house by myself every single Sunday morning (thank you, Georgie!)

In the meantime, I would really appreciate any feedback, so please, email me at milamoragaholz(at)yahoo.com with any comments you have. I am curious to know of any ways to make the store or this site more beautiful, entertaining, and appealing. Let me know. I will get back to you.

Here are some pictures of my Etsy and Ebay store. There is not a lot yet, I need to build up my portfolio, but, I thought I would just get started with what I have.

Thanks for reading!

Snooping on Etsy – Art for the Nursery

So, what is the best art for a nursery? I would say whimsical, little bit dreamy, and affordable. Something that transports you to the world of a child, a world of imagination, color, and wonder -while still being tasteful to adults who might stagger in to change a diaper.. Now, where to find art like this? Well, Etsy, of course. There are a lot of independent illustrators all over the world showcasing their beautiful work on Etsy and it is such a trip to venture into this world.

You can find prints that are funny and cute, and others more magical and dreamy. It all depends on the kind of nursery you want to decorate for your child.

My personal favorites are the images that give you a glimpse into an unknown world where things are supernatural and beautiful. Chasing the Crayon, Ashley Percival, Little Cat Draw, and Matte Stephens do this with peculiar characters in special circumstances.

Blancucha has clean, simple and expressive illustrations. I am drawn to her characters and how effortless and unpretentious they are.

I also like the idea of illustrating cities by showing what makes them different and special. I am from LA and Confettie Love makes a colorful print that has the Hollywood sign and traffic below it. It is funny and pretty. Ilustración y Más makes a pastel version of cities around the world, though I couldn’t find one of LA. I really like the one of NY, which is just an amazing city in every sense of the word.

Finally Fox & Velvet, I love Doodle, and Dawid Ryski go for more traditional subjects in vivid ways that will freshen up any kid’s room. I chose orange and red subjects to share with you in these pix, but they have art that beautifully features most any color you might want to have in your child’s room.

Snooping Around on Etsy – Cloth Napkins

I was walking around a craft fair a month ago when I saw a booth with gorgeous cloth napkins. A lot of colors, motifs, and textures. It was a reminder of how small, banal, everyday things can be transformed with a little bit of creativity and imagination. I did a search for cloth napkins on Etsy and found a lot of fun shops that could potentially transform your dinner table, if you wish.
Here are some the shops I found:
