Calendar of upcoming events!

welcome to 2015!!!

upcoming craft show items!!!!!

as the fall craft show seasons starts, I will post the shows in which I will be participating as a crafter, along with the addresses to the events!  

here is a list of some of the items I will be selling:

  • "Anthropologie" bracelets -- hand knit yarns combined with beautiful intricate chains are made into one-of-a-kind textured bracelets.  a charm is added to each bracelet for that "unique" look!  lots of colors to choose from!  
  • vintage-inspired hand crocheted bracelets with picot edges using pearl cotton thread in muted colors -- gorgeous to say the least!  topped off with three beautiful crocheted roses that rest on top of delicate crocheted leaves.  reminiscent of your great-grandmother's tatting projects from the late 1800's.  
  • Window/Shelf Sitter cats!  for all you cat lovers, this is a must-have!  cat silhouettes are sewn from vintage calico cotton fabrics and are gently stuffed with top quality polyfil. each cat sits about 12 inches tall with a long hanging tail and is a perfect addition to your windowsill, the top of you cupboard, or on a shelf!  no litter box required!  special orders taken!  these are gorgeous when made with old quilt scraps/cutter quilts you might have around the house -- nice way to remember someone special in your life who may have made you a quilt that is no longer usable! 
  • hand-crocheted wire bracelets with gorgeous-colored crystal beads/stones -- very organic-looking with open weaves of various shades of wire.  all original designs by yours truly!
  • thick, luscious neck cowl warmers with designer buttons  -- all hand crocheted by me!  buttons are made from coconut shells into various shapes (quarter moon, flower,etc.)  perfect addition to the cowls!  a real conversation starter!
  • plush, long infinity scarves, hand-knit from thick, imported variegated yarns -- scrumptous and oh, so warm !
  • hand-made wooden scarf pins embellished with various gemstones -- beautiful and unique!  perfect way to decorate your scarf while keeping it in place!
  • new assortment of my famous ladder yarn necklaces/scarves in fall colors! always a top seller!    plus matching earrings this year!!!  
  • vintage hand-crocheted dishcloths that are double thick, just like Grandma used back in the 1920's!  you can't wear these out !!!  lots of different stitch designs, from the French stripe to the loganberry stitch to the waffle stitch to the original diagonal stitch!
  • hand-made cards for all occasions, embellished with beautiful layers of vintage cardstock, ribbons, etc.   beautiful enough to frame !!! 
  • raggedy annie and andy, vintage teddy bears -- all original designs, sure to melt your heart!
