Crackers for animals

lucky_booties_medium-ct1

I was given the Nov/Dec 2011 edition of Selvedge magazine by a good friend. If you have any interest in textiles, it is well worth a squizz.

Anyhoo, as I was leafing through marvelling at all the talented people there are out there, I came across an article on Stephanie Housley and her beautiful ‘Coral and Tusk‘ range of embroidered bits ‘n’ bobs.  Stephanie started Coral & Tusk in 2007 with her husband Chris Lacinak.  She is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and is clearly a massive animal lover, too.  She lives and works in New York.

I was already familiar with some of her work, having picked up one of her lovely brooches last year.

When I purchased my wee brooch, I had no idea how extensive her collection is.

There is the stationery, which is designed as a keepsake and fits into a standard frame (how gorgeous!):

The children’s ware (and in my favourite colour, too!):

And the home and gifts (sigh):

Best of all, Coral and Tusk sells directly from their website and ships internationally.

Hi,
Very unusual, but very nice. 🙂

A little bit quirky, yes. A little whimsical, too.

Totally love, especially the booties. I am a sucker for anything with horseshoes and yellow (the color or eternal optimism)….love the brooch too!

I’m glad you like Stephanie’s work, too. 🙂

love these!

Another clever woman! 🙂
