old yarns made new







My kindred spirit...this lovely atelier and 'purveyor of fine home wares', reclaims vintage threads for modern living. A poetic blend of history and function, romance and utility, Kristina of oldyarns, weaves new life into found textiles. Her treasures, gathered worldwide, are gently mended and embellished to adorn your home. The styling offers timeless and natural accents, pure comfort and perfect simplicity. And do see her journal of musings and inspiration, rustic and beautiful imagery and everyday living down under. She'll also be featured in the thoughtfully curated market, poppytalk handmade 'home sweet home', beginning this week! A kind reminder to support independent studios and to breathe new life into old.

To those of you in town, do check out this important and tasty soiree supporting 'Parents as Teachers'.

Thank you Tyler for this super sweet post; I am almost blushing. I am such a fan of your work - and just as soon as I figure out who I can give them to, a pair of those bloomers are in my sights. (I would love to squeeze in myself!) Thanks again, K

The vintage bed linens are so pretty. They look so clean and white and crisp. Very pretty!
