The Calling - This Week's Chicago Ten

It's another Monday, so that means another round of the top ten Chicago finds from handmade here they are - in no particular order - the ten items that caught my eye this week:

Historic Ballparks by Geministudios
Dreamscape from Life'sAnExpedition
Baha'i Temple from Liam Parkinson
Poncho from HappyKatt
Loop from Burntone
Vegan Bath Bombs from Brisil
Orange Crush from NickPaul
Night in the Forest by Fantazerova
Destash from SpinSpanSpun
Lace Hoop Earrings from Ellejewels

There are artists, knitters, spinners, glass blowers and jewelry makers on the list. No matter how big a city is, it's amazing to find so much talent in one (albeit huge) spot. From this list of ten I could almost complete my Christmas/birthday shopping.

Side note, if you're ever in the Chicago area, you must pay a visit to the Baha'i Temple in Wilmette. Whether or not you are a person of faith, the building is a wonder and the grounds are magnificent.
