Great Shop – Peg and Awl Shop

blog-blitz

This little beauty comes from IAMTHELAB (http://www.iamthelab.com/blog-blitz/)

 

I am quite literally in awe (pun in intended) of this shop that I am about to talk about, and I found them while perusing my favorite blog of handmade goodness over at IAMTHELAB.  They are the Peg and Awl shop and I am excited to introduce you to them.  I am following the rules of IAMTHELAB’s Blog Blitz and the photo I use are in accordance with said rules.  All the photos used are the property of the Peg and Awl shop.

First, I would like to give you the direct link back to IAMTHELAB’s post on this shop… it is a wonderful piece written by Brett Torrey Haynes http://www.iamthelab.com/craftiness-handmade/get-inspired-more-handmade-goodness-from-peg-and-awl/.

The Peg and Awl shop is run by a husband and wife team and they are amazing in their widespread approach to handmade. Here are a few of the pieces made by the husband and wife team that are a creators of this shop:

Small Botanical Desk Caddy

The Small Botanical Desk Caddy is one of my favorite things because I can see using it on my desk for brushes, pencils, or even tools I use in my jewelry making.  This shop’s inventory ranges from dry goods, jewelry, home, office/studio, kitchen, garden, journals, decoupage, photography, and one of a kind items.

Here is an example of their one of a kind items:

Book Necklace: Ben Franklin 1906

Book Necklace: Ben Franklin 1906, “This useable and wearable miniature book is covered with a bit of an antique leather postcard from 1906 still baring the original 1 cent Ben Franklin stamp and postmark.”  – Peg and Awl

This is one of those shop that my mind just says “uh-oh” the minute I see it, because I know that it has everything that I love to pause, touch, and wonder over for long moments at a time.  The little tiny books remind me of books I used to gather as a child.  Good craftsmanship can be found at every turn in this shop.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and find time to leave them some positive feedback and perhaps take something with you.

I know I plan on making a list of must haves and then purchasing a few items to add to my collections of handmade love!
