A few months ago Ink & Peat started carrying some dreamy clothing, like breezy tunics and cute embroidered dresses. I’m also crazy for the poufs, the woven pillows, beautiful textiles, the cardamom chocolate, the pretty scarves, the bells, soaps, and the cookbooks. There are some wonderful cards and cute stuff for kiddos too. Check out all the loveliness below…
