Friday I'm in Love: Hereness & Thereness

"Friday I'm in Love" on Friday features of shops, makers, and creative people worth checking out.

Now that I've shared my Reading Room makeover, I can finally swoon openly about one of my favourite wee details in the space: my itty bitty gnome. Best five dollars I've spent in my life.

Friday I'm in Love on Adorable Hereness & Thereness gnome!

That tiny gnome is one of the most adorable things I own. I'm pretty sure I could get a puppy and still not think it was as cute as this gnome. I found him on Etsy from a maker named Amberlea from her shop Hereness & Thereness. Amberlea creates the most unique and adorable fabric playhouses and characters to go with them. 

The designs are hand drawn, turned into custom fabrics and then sewn into adorable plush toys and fold-out houses. There is a lot of work that goes into such a small bundle of happiness!

Check out this Wee Fabric Gnome House as an example of the amazing attention to detail:


I am absolutely in love with how much detail and hard work goes into these fabric houses. And most of them come with a plush character to play with! This is a really cool and unique idea for gifting. It's like a small play-house that doesn't break, and is a million times cuter. I've got my eye on them for my munchkins!

Here are a few more cute things:
