I'm not the only one who makes pretty things, though. This post is dedicated to lovelies that are handmade by other artists. I have made purchases from all of these sellers and have had fabulous experiences with all of them. I think that products from any of these sellers would make wonderful Christmas gifts. I would love to send some business their way, so if any of these product catches your eye, please follow the links to their stores!
I own this exact leaf necklace
It's one of my favorites,
and I get compliments every time I wear it!
Plus the owner of the shop
very generously sent me a multi-strand necklace free of charge
after I inquired about purchasing one
for my vintage Jerusalem cross pendant.
My very favorite pair of earring of all time
come from South Wind Design.
They're dainty pink-and-green flower earrings.
Unfortunately they're not available anymore,
but when I lost my first pair,
I missed them so much I ordered a second
I don't own the pair pictured above, but aren't they pretty?
I love Moaning Minnie's artsy hats!
I own one of her cloche hats.
It was a special order,
and she made and mailed it days before leaving on a trip,
getting it to me from England
in less than two weeks from the day I ordered.
One of her unique newsboy caps (pictured above)
is high on my wish list!
Bella Blue Knits' fingerless gloves
met all of my picky requirements for fingerless gloves:
they must have cozily covered thumbs, not merely thumb slits,
they must not roll or bunch on the palms,
they must be a nice, medium length,
they must be machine washable,
they must not be itchy,
and they must not be prohibitively expensive.
I'm quite content with the green pair I own
(they're just like the blue pair above),
but sure wouldn't mind a pair of these pretty green leaf ones too!
If you've read my blog for a while,
you might remember that I purchased three
of naokostoop's Red Knit Cap Girl prints
for Sweet Pea's nursery.
I also own a print from her brown paper bag art collection.
I love so many of her pieces
that I could easily fill an entire wall with them!
are just as charming as the rest of her work.
And just so you know...
The photos I used in this post
were taken by the artists whose work I admire (not by me).
Also, I wasn't given anything for saying this stuff.
I just love these products
and wanted to share how beautiful they are.
