Catablogue: Twig and Thistle

Twig and Thistle: Finds for Everyday

This blog is about a lot of things that I'm not at all about: graphic design in fabric and print, sewing, crafts, party decorating, handmade stationery, etc. However, it's so visually appealing that I still like it! Twig and Thistle's sidebar proclaims it to be "a collection of daily inspiration for home and life," and I can see how it would be. Looking for theme ideas (including invitations, decorations, and food) for a baby shower, bridal shower, or birthday party that you're throwing? Planning a wedding reception and want some ideas for tasteful decor and favors for the guests? Seeking inspiration (e.g., fabric, patterns) for your next needlework project? Wanting to keep busy with a craft or make something homemade for a gift but running out of ideas? Then, yes--you guessed it--Twig and Thistle is your source!

You have to visit the blog to appreciate fully the simplicity of the layout and the beauty of the photographs. Just to give you an idea of the variety of topics covered, I randomly chose a month (January 2009) from which to share an illustrative sampling:
If your covetousness is aroused by Twig and Thistle, you might wish to peruse its online shop (reopening tomorrow) or patronize the blog's sponsors (check out the current sponsor in Twig and Thistle's sidebar). Or, for free, you could spend time browsing the archives of Twig and Thistle or consulting the blog's sidebar and exploring the sites recommended there. Or just check in once in a while to see the most recent post . . . and let the beauty of the topic and its presentation calm or inspire you.

(What is a catablogue?)
