La casa de coto

One of my favorite shops on Etsy is La casa de coto. They make beautiful crochet cushions which I've posted about hereThey are also part of the "Popular Posts" category on the right side of the blog so as you can see, I'm not the only one bowled over by their wares. Today I noticed that they have added some new items to their inventory which I thought you should see. Aren't these natural raffia pendant lights in fluorescent colors divine! And how about those Moroccan Kilim Pouf covers. They would go so well with a white couch! Have I mentioned how badly I want a white couch......hmmmm....time to plot, I mean plan...:)
