Featured this week

This week instead of newly listed items, I decided to showcase some finds from members who have not been featured recently.

Sunshine and Daisy Earrings

Using a necklace from a friend's old jewellery stash, I've upcycled these pewter daisies to be the perfect drop beneath yummy butter-yellow howlite rounds.

Because of the pewter daisies, these earrings have a bit of weight to them. If you have sensitive ears, please have a look around my shop for other, lighter earrings ;)

Total length is about 1 1/2".

Hand-made sterling silver ear wires.


Handspun Yarn - Kaleidoscope Colors - 156 yds - 100% Corriedale

This Corriedale is next to skin soft. The colors are amazing with everything from lime green to soft blues, yellows and oranges. This will be great for mittens, socks or slipper socks.

Handspun by me, 2 ply, weight is appx. 3 ounces. Dyed using acid dyes, mordant used: vinegar and citric acid.

10 - 12 WPI

Twist is set, hand wash cold, lay flat to dry


Pumpkin Buttons (Set of 6)

Buttons are 1 inch in size. Halloween is almost here :)


Coffee sleeve cozy orange tones Eaton's vintage yarn

This coffee sleeve will keep your coffee hot and your fingers cool. It measures 4 in long and will fit most coffee cups. In the picture, it is on a "tall" sized cup and is quite deep.

This cozy is knit from a skein of vintage yarn reclaimed at an estate sale. This coffee sleeve is definitely one of a kind because you can no longer find this yarn or colour. It was made from an Eaton's brand called Vanity Fair and was knit in a basket weave pattern. The orange hues make it a perfect gift for that man in your life who loves his morning cup of java.


Coral Beauty

Celebrate the most popular color of 2011!

This hair piece is constructed out of a soft cotton/blend fabric with just a hint of shimmer, sure to put a smile on your face. The cheery coral color is perfect for the coming summer months. At its center, this piece has just a touch of shimmery white tulle, and is finished off by a sparkly rhinestone.

* Approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter


Illustration Print: Elliot Plays Checkers (and Tries to Understand the Rules)

This is Elliot. He is moderately shy and is happy just to be invited.

* high quality, limited edition 8 x 10" unframed print (approx. 20 x 25 cm)

Made with graphite pencil, watercolour, paper and imagination. No pandas were harmed in the making of this product.


wood bird necklace - rainy day

These bird pendants are one of a kind - no two will ever be the same!

This hand-painted wood bird was created with hand-cut pieces of lovely paper decoupaged onto the pendant. It measures 4" across, and is finished with a lovely raindrop shaped silver chain and lobster clasp. This amazing chain measures approximately 18" in length. Feel like dressing it down a little? Flip the necklace the other way and discover and beautifully bronze painted bird.

The pendant has been sealed with a few coats of protective finish, but as with all wood pendants, please keep clear of water.


Vintage antique gold filigree, baby blue, brass- OOAK earrings--Really Old-reclaimed jewelry---Low Shipping

These beauties used to belong to an old pair of clip earrings.
Two intricate filigrees are soldered to a line of marbled baby blue antique glass beads.. These are really old!!
I added heart/tulip shaped Czech glass beads in matching colours and brass lever back ear wires.


Stainless Steel "European 4-1 with Chains" Bracelet

Medium/small cable chains flank either side of this basic Euro 4-1 bracelet.. It measures just under 7 inches in length, nearly 1 inch in width, and fastens with a secure stainless steel tube clasp.

Beautifully basic and versatile.

An original watercolour painting I completed in October 2011.
