ilex . every . day – Beautiful Things Thoughtfully Made

img_7729Happy first day of fall! Okay, now I’m in fall mode and ready to share my fall outfits with you on my Outfit Of The Week soon. Next Tuesday I have something extra special ready for you so stay tuned!

Her name is Holly, and she simply loves making beautiful knit and crocheted things for people to wear. Everything in her shop is handmade and designed by her, unless specifically noted. She also gives credit to pattern designers whose work she’s borrowed, so if you’re a crocheter yourself and you find something beautiful, you’ll be able to replicate it using their pattern. All of her materials are high-quality and traded fairly. Many are manufactured in the USA or Canada, and those sourced from exotic locations are strictly Fair Trade. With every purchase, you are supporting local, sustainable production practices. Also when you purchase an Ilex product, you’ll receive a complimentary “Story of Me” card, detailing where the materials in your product originated. See something you like, but want it customized? Simply send her a message, and she will work with you to make your vision a reality!

Want to meet Holly in person to check out her creations or discuss something extra special and unique? She will be at Etsy Made In Canada in Edmonton this Saturday September 24th. It looks like it will be a super fun time. I just might load up my two guys and attend.

I was blessed to have the opportunity to do just that and create this gorgeous mustard toque with a faux fur pom-pom. I must say I’m in love! I’m sure to stay nice and toasty warm this winter. Want to make a custom one for yourself? Then just swing on over here. Also Ilex Everday Couture can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
