Gifts from Inspire Co.
Afraid of writing too much about things that are "cutesy", I tend to banish anything overly precious to the seldom updated category "A bit of whimsy to brighten up your day". But when I want to embrace cuteness, one of my very favorite places online for the truly delightful is Inspire Co. which is run by Amy Powers and features items as varied as vintage card games and bunny figurines alongside tiaras and charm bracelets. It's a store so sweet it could give you a toothache and I always revel in Amy's celebration of all things whimsical and dainty.
Inspire co. is specifically a gift store, but unlike most gift stores, sells the sort of thing you would actually want for yourself--and yet there are so many unique treasures that you will quite look forward to giving them away--for the gushing and the gratitude of course. I peeked in to her shop this morning, and here are some things I loved--new items are added all the time.
My favorite find: these yellow felt tulips.
Button collages; clever and also adorable.
Beautifully rusted vintage keys.
And some really Gorgeous button brooches.
