Time stood still for me when I saw this black rotary dial phone next to a Chinese vase. It reminded me of family and beautiful traditions. Wine glasses with crochet bases give table settings that modern, elegant touch. Make unforgettable holidays!

Pumpkin Spice!

Pumpkin spice is my favorite thing this time of the year. So every year I have to find a nice, soft yarn in some kind of orange color that resembles pumpkin or pumpkin spice.

This pom pom hat was inspired by my girls. They love pom poms on hats and I don’t make enough pom pom accessories, just to be honest.

I crocheted this hat using a wool blend of a chunky yarn and a size H crochet needle. It’s super fun to make! More about this hat here.

Enjoy the pics!

Beanie Hats

Beanie hats are meant to highlight your beauty. So the simpler the beanie hat the better. After all this is about you! 🙂

I also like hats with pom poms .. don’t get me wrong. However, I really like the nice simple look of beanie hats. They are relaxed but have great personality!

In terms of this one, I made it using a simple, consistent crochet stitch. Then, the yarn is great too! This yarn is my favorite for making beanie hats. This is a super soft wool blend which makes it very comfortable to wear.

This beanie hat is also available in almost every color. More details here.

Summer Crop Tops

A new crop top collection arrived at my shop. These tops are the best for swimming pool and beach parties. They are great as bikini and swimming suit tops or simply to complement any relaxed outfit. 

I love to wear relaxed outfits to make the most of the fun warmer weather!

Tie Dye in Solid Colors

Typically when I hear tie dye I imagine a mix of bright yellow, green and red on shirts. Not that it’s not fun, but I experimented designing other tie dye accessories and started with hair accessories. Then I thought of solid color tie dye and/or family of colors in tie dye, and I loved the results!

Here are some pictures.  You may click on them for more information. Enjoy!

Every time I look for inspiration I shop for yarn. Fortunately this time I had the opportunity to find this beautiful specialty yarn! Soon I will be designing fall and winter accessories.

Heart Mandala Pencil Art with a purpose

My shop offers handmade unique seasonal items handmade by myself using crochet, knitting and mixing various technique and artistic inspiration. My passion for the arts and helping a cause is also present in my shop. For example, all proceedings from this Mandala artwork sales goes out to fund SharingForKids.org, an organization helping very poor children receive cancer and heart disease related treatment in Cartagena, Colombia.

About the artist:
“Lucia is the artist behind this Heart Mandala. Her beautiful process is to take a Mandala and recreate it while telling us a story through her original use of a variety of unique coloring schemes. By day, Lucia is a psychologist and her experience is that working on Mandala pencil art gives her moments of calm, relaxation, reflection and peace. She also shares that looking upon the finished art is also a great source of peace and quiet.”
