etsy south...

we both love etsy so we'd like to highlight our favorite finds each week from artisans and collectors based in the south.

my favorite of all favorite etsy stores is yokoo, based in atlanta, ga.  yokoo knits such whimsical, creative pieces that i believe i could turn one of her scarves into a fine little nest.  her lovely self-portraits modeling each of her pieces are a work of art unto themselves.  here's a nytimes piece about her.

check out this great video on her and her work.
