Moons and Magic Carpets

Two more moon shrines to take a gander at. These are the last two smaller drawers from the set that I've been using to create this series of boxes. My husband suggested that we go and buy another set but I said that the recycle/upcycle part of these makes them a little bit more special. He agreed.

I love how the red and white really pops against the darker sky in this one. Go to the etsy listing for this item.
And this one is just so cheery and sweet. I especially like the ladybugs that are escaping into the real world. We have ladybugs all over our old house. They are everywhere! They crawl all over the windows, the tables, on the rim of my wine glass, the sink... I know they're a pest but seeing them around makes me happy.

I also like the little paper butterfly perched on a tiny pinecone. I've got a butterfly project on the brain so I just had to try to stick one in here somewhere. Go to the etsy listing for this item.


Last, but certainly not least... I bought a magic carpet! I've always wanted an old rug like this and when I saw this one for a song I jumped at the chance to bring it home.

The kidlet has already tried it out and said that he had some trouble getting it off the ground. No worries,  we've got all summer to weave some magic into that old rug.


  1. Darling! Love the amanita mushrooms -xo

  2. Yes, it's shaping up to be a bumper ladybug summer. The mild winter, I suppose.

    That is a lovely carpet. I often think it's a good thing I don't have money, or I'd spend it all on beautiful carpets!

  3. love those boxes!! and you'll have to swing down my way on that carpet when you get it up and running...i've always wanted to ride on a magic carpet!!

  4. Your boxes are really wonderful! I love the faces on the moons. :) Love your new rug!
