Little Lila, crafting away.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

“I had an amazing skeleton key collection as a kid. I wore this one as a pendant for some time.”

“For a couple of years, I was really into making paperweights and brooches from seashells, sea glass, and two-part epoxy. This is one that still lives at my mom’s house. I remember a dear family friend included some of these in an opening at her gallery. I made thirty bucks!”

“I used to take apart vintage pieces (I know—for shame!) to repurpose them into ball-chain necklaces. Oh-so nineties.”
