Why I Love: Awkward

Button Up Scarf in Silver Grey Merino by Awkward

Two words: natural fibers. I’m such a fan of luxurious textiles and natural fibers—it’s a bit of an obsession!  But when you pair that with amazing detail and exquisite workmanship you have something utterly divine. You have Awkward! Lovely hand-crafted accessories that are beautifully constructed from luxurious natural fibers like silk and merino and alpaca, Oh my! It’s a feast for all your senses. Feminine yet completely modern—accessories you can both wear and cherish! It’s why I love Awkward!

A Perfect Way to Try a Scent

Mireio Votives: Available in all Mireio’s Signature Fragrances!

Sometimes it’s hard to buy scented things off the internet! Sure the descriptions sound wonderful but what if you don’t like it? It can be a risk—which is why I recommend if you’re unsure that you try ordering a sample set of Mireio Votives. They come in sets of 4 and you can have yours poured in any of Mireio’s luxurious fragrances. It’s an easy way to try without making a big investment.

Mireio customers who order votives tend to come back for more! My favorite scent this season is Love Spells: Dark Chocolate Passion. It’s sultry and warm, but not overly sweet. It’s romantic! My husband loves it, so it appeals to both  men and women. Perfect for the change in seasons and creating a cozy space.

Hello, It’s September

Coming Soon to Mireio: Vintage Textile Pendants and Hand-knotted beaded necklaces

Hello September! It’s been awhile and I’m hoping now that the fall is rushing toward us, I’ll be hanging around Mireio a bit more! I’ve been busy moving (paint, paint, paint) my studio and prepping the second installment of  the fall shop update. Coming soon to Mirieio: cashmere and wool pillows, lovely new necklaces, and a few more surprises. Plus, The Best of Etsy will be coming back with great new picks. And I even have a tutorial or two planned.

So, welcome to September. I hope you’ll come hang out with me, too!
