Australian shop Lark is exactly the kind of store I LOVE! It’s filled with unique, cutesy, girly, vintage items that are destined to become heirlooms. ( I could be a little dramatic, right now because no one right is gonna use 40 year old soap.) Anyway, here’s a run down of everything I loved in their online store:

1. Fun Fact: I collect cuckoo clocks and gnomes. (That probably explains everything.) Anywho, these cuckoo clocks are extra-special because they’re FELT! Awesome is an understatement. But I predict it would be covered in cat hair by day 3 at my house. Even more FUN!

2. Deer soap- So vintage-y and Bambi-like. LOVE  it so much that I probably would never use it. Woe is me.

3. A Diner lunchbox/handbag- It’s a 1950s partaaay!

4.A pigtail kit- Because it’s a dire necessity in any girl’s life. I ordered two.

5. Vintage Dinner Placemat- Excellent way to remember which side the silverware goes. Also, an excellent way to serve food without dishes…. maybe not.

6.An owl purse- My Goldfrapp obsession continues…

7. Felt deer’s head- Brilliant!!!! No deers died for that, but the felt felt something.(Gong! Wait one more.. almost done….)

8.Teacup gift wrap- But, of course!

Okay, you can use the hook now.

Designer Phuong Thuy Nguyen must use the crap out of his Singer knitting machine! I have done alot of posts on knitwear lately, but I think this one is my favorite. It’s like the really heavy acrylic (?) yarn that only a midwestern granny can master. I really do love the shapes and silhouettes Phuong has created. It’s like so futuristic, but so 70’s simultaneously. Speaking of knit and the 70’s, my mom had made this hideous macrame owl that used to sit on our doorstep with a pot of fern placed strategically in it’s mouth. It was brown and smelled like a basement. It kinda looked like this, but huge, like 6 feet tall. Don’t get me wrong, my mom had mad skillz for making sh*t like that, but Dang! it was downright FUG. Apparently, she sold it for a pretty penny to a midwestern lady. See, it all comes back to the midwest- only they can appreciate knit-anything! Check out Phuong’s ( that name makes me crave some delicious Pho) Site for more cool stuff!
