You Are My Sunshine

A few months ago I came across a lovely shop on Instagram. I started following her page and instantly fell in love with all of her beautiful handmade pieces. Rebecca at House of Bec makes hand stamped vintage silverware made from rescued silver-plated spoons and cutlery. She brings each one back to life to display in planted pots, on the wall, in a frame, or to give as a gift. I have fallen for many of her pieces over the last few months, but this one in particular is my favorite. Throughout my childhood, my grandma always sang this song to me. I even have a very special tape recording of her and I singing the song together when I was just two years old. I have this lyric throughout my house on picture frames and framed sheet music. My husband and I have a house full of potted plants, so this would be a perfect fit in our home.
Her Etsy shop also features a beautiful collection of jewelry that she makes in her home studio. The pieces are made of sterling silver and made from casts of real succulents and twigs. How neat is that?! All of her pieces are stunning and so unique. I am also a huge succulent lover, so I am wanting every piece!
You can find her shop at House of Bec on Etsy. You can also find her on Instagram at @houseofbec.
Here are a few more pretty handmade pieces from her collection

Whimsical Critter

This is my first post in 2 years... but when I came across this, I couldn't help myself! Embroidered hoop art is beautiful on its own, but add some lovely patterned fabric, and you have a really unique piece of art for your home. I have come across several shops lately with pretty embroidery items, but this has to be one of my favorites. This super fun "Pesky Squirrel" hoop art can be found at Three Red Apples on Etsy. The shop is filled with so many lovely, whimsical handmade items. I think I might have to get one!
