Do you remember that show Sister, Sister from the 90s?

I loved that show when I was little (I think I was ten or eleven when it started airing). Mainly because I use to daydream about having a sister myself. I have one brother whom I love dearly, but having a sister (in addition to, not in leu of) would have been awesome too.

My best friends in high school were sisters and there was such a strong bond between them. Made me a little jealous. Like I was missing out or something.

Do you know what I mean? Or is this just me?

Maybe that’s why I am so drawn to the story of Little Minnow, a little shop on Etsy with a lot of heart. It’s run by two sisters, Lizzi and Mary, which of course I love. I am always on the lookout for husband and wife teams, but I don’t come across too many siblings working together, so this is pretty neat to me.

The two girls live in Austin, Texas, where they sketch all of their designs. Drawings are then transfered to the computer and then make their way over to screen printing. I know you are probably tired of hearing about my scarf hunt by now, but obviously, I’m partial to them…

It’s hard to tell from my post, but they do carry other items beside scarves. :)

This is our closet.

Well part of it anyway (my favorite part).

It is two or three times the size of our old one in Florida, but somehow we’ve managed to fill it to the brim with clothes and shoes. And Luna likes to sleep in there too, so I think we can all agree that it’s fair to blame her for not being able to fit anything else in there. Right?

Cool, so we’re on the same page about blaming the dog. But even so, that doesn’t change the fact that we don’t have much space left for new things. Which is why I am starting to think that unisex wearables are the way to go – saves space and it’s cheaper because you and your mate can wear it. Just not at the same time. Preferably.

Now, that’s probably not going to work when it comes to shoes or most clothing, but accessories? Yeah, I can do that! And you know I am hunting for scarves since several people told me in the comments of this post that having just one scarf in Seattle is basically insane.

So how about one of these…

I think I am partial to the red and black one - it feels kind of lumberjack-y in a good way, but green is good too.

They’re made by Don’t Get it Twisted Crochet and they look pretty cozy to me. What about you? If you like what you see you can get 20% off your order with the coupon code “PNSJAN”. There are plenty of more girlie styles too if you don’t want to go the unisex route.

That’s going to wrap things up for the week. Hope you have an amazing weekend! Stay warm.

The weather here in Seattle this week seems super up and down. One day it was as if I couldn’t put enough clothes on before braving the cold and the next a light jacket seemed to do the trick.

If I just had a few more scarves I think I’d feel more prepared for any kind of weather (right now I only have one – and it’s awesome. but I could use a few more). At least, that’s what I am telling myself at the moment. Any excuse to shop, right?

I found a few from Little Birdie Design Studio that I really like. Maybe one of these will do the trick? I really like the grey one and this orange one looks cozy too.

Of course, if I am going to shop for myself, it only seems fair to get something for Luna too..

That’s right. Tori makes doggie scarves as well. Are these not the cutest things ever or what?
