website. Nim Pot has a rather large warehouse store in Antigua, Guatemala where I spent a lot of time pawing through racks and piles of textiles .

And, last, but not least, check out this stunning bracelet made by artist, Robin Stelling.
her Etsy shop, CreativeBeadz, she sells handcrafted jewelry that "marries my passions for antique textiles, embroidery, beads and gemstones" This one is made from vintage Bedouin fabric featuring a piece of rutilated quartz. I discovered her work in a roundabout way because it was being promoted on Facebook by Handmade Spark. (A site well worth checking out in itself.)
It was hard to narrow down my selection to just the one I liked best. I could still see myself wearing a few of the others from her shop.
I'd say I pretty well spoiled myself for this week. Thanks to the cool summer weather here on the Central Coast of California I didn't have to wait until fall or winter to wear all my new stuff!
