thistleandbess: I have been living in my newly renovated

I have been living in my newly renovated home for about a year now and I am finally getting the itch to switch some things up. Moving around artwork and accessories is an easy fix to make things feel fresh and new. And I’m beyond excited to finally wallpaper my entryway (and have been ordering samples like crazy). How often do you switch things up in your home?

thistleandbess: Today on Behind the Counter, in our Instagram

Today on Behind the Counter, in our Instagram stories now, we are answering some of the most frequently asked questions that we hear from customers when they visit the shop. We probably get the MOST questions about our gorgeous book wallpaper that is behind the shop counter. I had personally been a huge fan of this design for quite some time. When I started renovating the shop, using this paper was the first design decision that I made and I’m so glad that I did. I still adore it 📚 Check out some of the other FAQs in our Instagram stories!

thistleandbess: Today we would like to feature maker extraordinaire, @

Today we would like to feature maker extraordinaire, ! Erica holds a BFA specializing in printmaking and mixed media painting from the University of Michigan. She is a woman of many talents, making these colorful bead and tassel necklaces that we carry in the shop, along with weavings, paintings and ceramics. Erica will be teaching a beginning weaving class at the shop in February. Her unique style, easily recognized by its creative use of color and patterns, explores themes of nostalgia, family and home. If that wasn’t enough, Erica is also a musician and plays in the band Learn some more about Erica in our latest episode of Behind the Counter in our Instagram stories today and check out her work the next time that you are in the shop.
