Hand-Felted Items from Crafts2Cherish

by Jamie Sanford on June 1, 2011

I mentioned yesterday that I’m working on planning a vow renewal with my husband for our 5-year wedding anniversary. Since we’ve looked at a number of hotels in Las Vegas, including the Paris, I immediately started thinking about a Paris-inspired look.  Felt artisan Crafts2Cherish on Etsy has great items for this purpose.

This is a classic beret with a hand-felted red rose attached. Very perfect for embracing the stereotype. $51 from Etsy seller Crafts2Cherish.

This pink felted ring is such a more fun option than a traditional corsage. Available for $19 from Crafts2Cherish.

This would also work as a great corsage replacement, a beautiful red poppy. This is available for $32.

This item doesn’t fit as well into my Parisian theme, but it’s a beautiful chunky knit, and 50% of the sale will go to ongoing relief efforts in Japan.  This beautiful beret is available for $25 from Etsy seller Crafts2Cherish.

The Coach Poppy Project

by Jamie Sanford on August 6, 2010

Hi everyone,

Readers of this blog know that I really enjoy the latest items from the Coach Poppy Collection.  Well, I’ve joined the Poppy Project! If you are reading this via the feed, please come to the site and see the post here.

Here’s how you can participate and be eligible for Coach prizes, and to maybe help me get one too. 🙂

1. Click the Facebook Like button on the sidebar on the left of The Daily Wishlist.  The more action that the Poppy Project gets, the more that Coach will be hooking it up with the prizes.

2. Tweet using my hashtag #dailywishlist to make the poppy pattern on this site grow.  If you want to help everyone, you can tweet with #CoachPoppy as well, but obviously I won’t mind if you choose to only help grow my pattern.

3. Visit The Daily Wishlist every day (as many times as you want, actually), and check for a Poppy bag in the pattern! If you see one, click on it because you’ve won a prize!

Dr Martens Shoes & Boots

by Jamie Sanford on April 5, 2010

I saw some Dr Martens online the other day (they have been around for 50 years!) and since I have the same pair I’ve had since I was 14/15 (and still wear them), I had to write a post about them.

From the “about” page on the Dr Martens website, this is such an accurate representation of how Docs took over: By the mid-1990s, Dr Martens had festered in the minds of youth without a single penny of ‘marketing spend’, longer than the majority of global brands had even existed. There is no comparison. This is not a brand, it is a way of thinking, a mode of expression.

So here we go. I am super jealous of people who don’t have to go hunting for Dr Martens anymore, they are just available on Amazon.  I don’t need to have rich parents to score a trip to Europe to get awesome multi-color boots (I went to school with a girl who DID get that trip to Europe and never thought she was cool enough to wear those Docs).

Dr Martens Women’s 5026 Mary Jane in Black Tartan Plaid, $64.99 – $69.99.

Dr Martens Men’s Adrian Tassle Loafer Tassel Loafers, $139.45.

These are so Elvis! Dr Martens Women’s 1461 Oxford, $90.95.
