A Peek (part two)


Just a few more glimpses of what I'll be adding to my Etsy shop on Monday.

For the holidays, poinsettia brooches made of felted garment wool and some pretty fantastic vintage buttons from my collection (I love those rhinestone buttons but hadn't had the right project for them until now).



I've brought out several vintage tea cups from my stash and spent some time building nests.  I like these as decorations both on the tree and on the wall.  I think a grouping of them would be really cute. 


This is a beautiful Rosenthal china cup that has been fitted with moss, twigs, and a few tiny wool eggs.  There will be more styles including Wedgwood, Nippon (with beautiful irridescence), milk glass, and more.


There will also be a single wool dove with antique glass button eyes


and just a few sets of mushroom ornaments, including one collection of plant-dyed specimens, as well as a few apple and pear ornaments.

I'll be making gifts for family and friends in the coming weeks and I can't wait to share some of the projects wtih you.  Are you giving handmade this year?

They're all so wonderful! The poinsettias are especially sweet and vintagey, but your tea cups are gorgeous too. I have a few flea market tea cups sitting here waiting for some treatment too, none as beautiful as yours though :)
