Last Gasp of Summer: Nautical Pillows

new pillows from erin flett

This is a little embarrassing to admit, but around this time every year, I start checking the times for the sunrise and sunset.

I still can’t get over how quickly the weather has changed — I want to surround myself with things that feel like the inside of a warm, cozy cabin. So when I saw these sweet punched-tin lanterns (you can DIY your own version here) and Fair Isle sweaters from Sparrow & Co., I was hooked….
