We aren’t sure who designed the Threshold series at Target, but we like it. The weather-resistant “resin wicker” set is built to last with Nano-Tex treated cushions. Hardware has been hot dipped so it won’t rust. Choose from a large quantity of styles and colors, you can mix and match pieces to get the right feel. With earthy and sensual tones, we simply adore it.
Cubist Modern or are we seeing things? Pic: Target
Great for patios, outdoor space or your enclosure. No wonder why this won the “editor’s choice” pick recently being featured on Better Homes and Garden online. The ultra mod design mixed with a bit of cubist screams “buy me.” If you don’t like it entirely cubed, there are some more curvy styles. One of the names is Threshold Lowry, go figure.

Leave it to an Etsian to come up with the best designed greeting cards ever, each unique and handmade with colorful paper designs. The paper is rolled and quilled together to make these 3-D cards. Affordable and unique, these will have your betrothed’s eyes popping out. Nothing like giving a fancy design but paying a dime. The art of paper quilling goes back some time to the 16th and 17th century. Popular in France and Italy, one may forget just how lovely these designs can be. The art is also often called paper scrolling, rolling, or filigree mosaic. More often than not, simply just “quilling.”
The Art of Paper Quilling according to Rita Bose
These are the works of Rita Bose, an artist from India. Average price range about $8 and her shop has everything from Bridal to Christmas. You can even have custom work done. Find her at OfThingsPretty on Etsy. Her work is also here, OfThingsPretty.com
