have you any tapestries?

I like to wear lots of contrasting textures and muted colors, and this summer I got interested in embroidered accessories.  I love wearing something that feels like it belongs on the wall of a medieval castle.  How art thou, strange knight?  Say hello to my jousting sword! 

The top photo shows a bag I picked up at a thrift store on Fairfax.  The second is a vintage box and a Victorian boy's toy car (impulse buy, yes; no regrets).  The third photo is an oversized wallet from a vintage shop in Highland Park.

And yes, the title is a quote from the third Indiana Jones movie.

  2. Those are some beautiful items, especially the cross-body. It looks amazing.


  3. I just wanted to come by and say thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, California is pretty awesome, and ofcourse, the weather is fabulous.... especially now that it is getting cold, and dark early out here in NYC.

    All your pretty tapestry photos reminded me of this item that has been on my favorite list on Etsy:

    It's a tapestry material vintage shoe bag. How cute is that! I think it would be awesome for travel.
