These thick vintage Bolivian frazadas are remarkable with their beautiful bold and colorful stripey patterns. Made from sheep's wool these textiles have been handwoven then hand spun and are used as blankets or to sit on as a rug. These traditional frazadas are perhaps the last vestige of traditional hand weaving still thriving in the central Andes. They are fabulous over a bed or hanging on a wall. by elaine

We use these little crepes for everything- they're fantastic on their own with butter, topped with berry syrup for a delicious breakfast, spread with peanutbutter for a traditional lunch, or even filled with taco meat and used as a tortilla.  For families that aren't grain or gluten free, these are still great, because they're high protein and easy for little mouths to eat. by angel

Rock art in Northumberland, England. Featuring a mysterious mix of concentric circles, interlocking rings and hollowed cups, they are broadly dated between 4,000 and 6,000 years old. They may have been used in feasting or as part of a ritual, perhaps even as territorial markers or 'signposts'. The precise meaning of the carvings remains a delicious mystery.

Whats not to love about Red Creek jasper? It has rich, natural earth tones and gorgeous patterning, making each piece unique. These three pendants are all wrapped in the same style, but as you can tell, each is still one-of-a-kind. The asymmetrical wire weaving on these is done with solid copper wire and beads. I oxidize these by hand to achieve the desired degree of darkness in the copper and then polish them back up to create visual dimension and show off the texture of the weaving. Each p... by marissa

Opalized Belemnite fossil. More than a 100 million years ago, the central part of Australia was an inland sea, thriving with marine life. Shells, bones or cartilage formed cavities in the sandstone or the sea floor. These cavities were then filled with silica and formed the beautiful opalized belemnite pipes, shells and prehistoric fossils that we marvel at today. Belemnites (or belemnoids) are an extinct group of marine cephalopod. by patty
