all about castle

Lately I’ve seen a lot of CASTLE popping up on Pinterest and design blogs… and for good reason! If you are not sure what I’m talking about, check out their site and read what they’re all about:

“CASTLE loves having a bit of fun. We love color and whimsy. We love making accessible art and beautiful bedlinen. We love spots and fluro and grey and yellow and love hearts and flowers and paint and felt and everything that POPS around in our studio. If its fun we love it.”

I’ve been drooling over a few items and love the simplicity of their designs. Plus, felt is awesome. Here is what’s on my radar:

And speaking of felt, I have to share with you something super-special that my Aunt Maureen gave David when he was born. It’s called the Learning Book and each page was hand-sewn and embroidered on felt with buttons, velcro, sand paper, zippers, ropes and yarn attached – each page features a letter from the alphabet plus a learning tool. My aunt started making this book years ago but put it aside. David was the first born of the next generation, and scored the finished product. How amazing. xomeg
