Chakra Pennywhistle

The lovely Etsy shop Chakra Pennywhistle recently moved to a new location, and to celebrate they're introducing a great new line of eco-friendly pillow covers, inspired by early American folk art plus interesting items they've sourced in local shops. Just love these — such a wonderful combination of traditional and modern.
