Blogs We Love: Knick Knacks & Ric Rac

Since we could all use more crafty reading material, my co-bloggers and I thought we’d share some of our very favorite blogs with you. These are the blogs that enlighten, inspire, educate or just plain amuse us–and we think you should be reading them too. Stay tuned all week long to check out the rest of the series!
My Blogs We Love pick is Knick Knacks & Ric Rac: A Peek Behind the Scenes at Hannah is best known for making playful, fairytale-inspired clothing and accessories. Her blog is a fun look at the way her craftiness imbues every aspect of her life, and you may come away with some fun ideas of your own.
I really enjoy when Hannah posts photo-intensive tutorials, such as the above-pictured thrift store sweater revamp–she cut a boring pullover down the middle and adorned it with ribbon and new button closures to create a unique alpine-inspired cardigan.
I also love when she shares pictures of her favorite collections from around her home, whether she’s featuring Dutch-inspired kitchen textiles or her jaw-droppingly cool wall of cuckoo clocks. She inspires me to organize and display my own kitschy collectibles in a more artful way, which keeps my place from looking too Sanford and Son. Basically, Hannah’s blog is great eye candy that also gets me excited about crafting, and what could be better than that? Link.
