Down the rabbit hole... Lets get cozy edition.

As I am writing this it is a rainy and overcast day... But here in the sunshine state, that could change within the hour.When you are reading this, it will probably be desperately hot and humid.  Doesn't matter, we will take a few hours of rain while we can get it!

Not only are we in desperate need of rain here in Southern Cali, Erin & I are in desperate need of sweaters, ponchos and rain boots. Fall is here and we want to start dressing like it. 

While laying here in bed with a touch of a tummy bug and a big cup of tea... taking advantage of the kids all being back in school.... Down the Instagram rabbit hole I fell. 

Here are some of the amazing finds we want to share with you.

So this one the TWH ladies have been obsessing over for a while now. Beautiful hand knit pieces designed by a Belgian born artist living in Australia. And, yes, we do think Stéphanie Caulier should be called an artist and not just a designer because each piece is really a work of art.

We took this quote off of the I Love Mr. Mittens website makes us love this line even more.  "It is also important to recognise I love Mr Mittens “Heartworking” philosophy. Each garment is hand knitted with love by Stephanie and her team. This collaboration of small, independent businesses (rather than large conglomerates) completes the vision of I love Mr Mittens to create a brand that provides a genuine contribution back to the local community. University students and retired pensioners alike, work with a common objective of executing Stephanie’s vision of how knitwear should be, simple, elegant, timeless and fashionable."

We fell pretty hard for the beautiful illustrations of Hsiao-Ron Cheng when we saw them on the explore page of Instagram she strikes just the right mix of femininity and oddity that speaks to us. 

"Hsiao-Ron Cheng (鄭曉嶸) is a 1986-born Taiwanese digital artist/illustrator. She started to work as a freelance illustrator in 2012 and soon get international attention. In the same year, her work has been shortlisted for Young Illustrator Award. Hsiao-Ron's clients range from fashion brand to design agencies worldwide."We fell

UGGGHHH I'm dying to get over to try a restaurant more then I do Organix. Located in LA this Old World market and specialty grocer also has a vegan deli that makes me drool every day. Their Instagram feed is insane and total food porn. 

Everything that would be super naughty to eat except it is organic and vegan.... So it's almost like the calories don't count because you feel good about eating it.

Seriously decadent looking! Now my tummy is growling. Cold weather always makes us crave comfort foods.

Speaking of cozy and snuggly days... We fell so hard for this Moses & market basket company we stumbled upon on Instagram! 

These Moses baskets from Plum + Sparrow are enough to make me want a new born baby again.

San Diego mama of four beautiful babes is the proprietor of Plum + Sparrow and these Moses Baskets sell out quick!! We are hoping to be able to lock one down for our dear friends who are going to have their first baby soon.

The sun is already peeking out and the rain drying up... Weather reports say this weekend will be in the 90's here in our Golden State... But our hearts will dream of real fall days, full of crisp air and golden leaves. Hope you enjoyed your trip down the Instagram Rabbit Hole with us.
