The Macrame & Fiber Art of Chelsea Virginia

I frequent what I have decided is my very favorite local coffee shop in North Park, San Diego, “Coffee & Flowers”: an amalgamation of hip businesses that includes the Native Poppy flower shop, Communal Coffee, and North Park Nursery. The space itself is “design goals”, for lack of a better cliche, with faux tulip tables and Eames molded plywood and plastic chairs to sit, work, or simply enjoy a piece of avocado toast and a lavender latte, and bouquets of fresh flowers from the shop.

Lately I’ve yearned for change. Perhaps it’s the monotony of work and classes, or maybe it’s Midnight In Paris suddenly appearing on Netflix?

Sorry for the late post! Life’s been pretty hectic, as usual, and I tend to bite off more than I can chew. My motivation to post on The Tufted more often has dipped a bit, and I’m struggling to juggle everything and still find some personal time.

Even in woodworking, I’m not able to spend more time … Continue reading On Life, Adventures Home, and Falsa Blankets

Curated Craigslist: A Deep Blue Ottoman

Inspired by a bold, navy Moroccan-style pouf, this small mix of pieces was meant to be a tad boho (of course) and chic with gold accents and a floral Anthropologie rug (you know I’d be all over this if I had the room!). Oh, and I should mention I’ve seen the adorable little World Market settee in person and had to add it! I hope you enjoy: Craigslist Items: Anthropologie Rug West Elm Side Table Tufted Settee Blue Pouf Ceramic Table Lamp Glass & Gold Coffee Table Continue reading Curated Craigslist: A Deep Blue Ottoman
