Want to know about BarefootWeaver? Just read her profile on her Etsy page. How fascinating. I just love her creations. She uses thread and yarn in the best way, it seems like the individual threads just shine in her scarves and wrist cuffs. For just starting out in January, she's done very well for herself. Look at what she makes and you'll see why.

Friday Featured Seller - HaveFaithBelieve

Congratulations to HaveFaithBelieve, today's featured seller! HaveFaithBelieve is from Arkansas and has an eclectic variety to her shop. What got my attention were these bright felt flower clips decorated with buttons. I could totally see this paired with a scarf or scarflette to add a little extra glam.

Fiber Optic

I was at one of those historical re-enactment villages a couple weeks ago and I learned how to fingerspin wool. I've always liked watching the spinning demonstrations, and while I'd like to move up to that, fingerspun wool is fun too. So, let's take a look at FiberOptic, a great little yarn shop run by a PhD chemist who used their knowledge to form a superior yarn. I have to say, I love the color choices!

Jelly Jelly Roving

Superstition Roving

Ginger Yarn

I just love the intense colors. Can't find that at JoAnn or Michaels.

Last chance to get in on being a featured seller this Friday. Leave a comment! Lucky winner chosen tonight.

Lake Illustration

I know I'm waaaaaaay late to this party, but I just discovered Lake Illustration. Wow! Not only is this guy prolific, but he has great color sense. And celebrity sense.

How did I miss this shop?

Audrey Hepburn

Do All Things With Love

Johnny Cash

I just love the composition of the Johnny Cash print. And the way he looks in the illustration reminds me of Joaquin Phoenix, so that was a good casting call.

Has anyone else seen this shop? What's your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.

I saw this happy print of a couple owls as it floated past in the time machine and went to investigate. The creator is LeeArtHaus. Her shop is filled with prints of owls, birds, robots and the like in muted earth tones mixed with various bright colors. It may just be me, but methinks they like birds. :)

I like the texture and layers. What do you think? Leave a comment below.

We're Married!

My (now) husband and I were married today. We'll be honeymooning over the weekend a couple hours away from where we live. Should be a fun time.

Regular posts commence after this! Thanks for the patience!

It's been awhile since I featured letterpress. What attracted me to 12Fifteen was the cross-stitch letterpress coasters. You could even use the coasters to send little notes if you can't bear to put a glass on the prettiness. The texture and color choices are so appealing. Her shop also offers prints as well.

I love the intricate detail and color choices. Lovely!
Today is the last day to get in on Friday Featured Seller love, so if you want to be featured, be sure to leave a comment.

In Process

I just started school (going on week 3) and after a horrible no good very bad day on Friday, the blog fell down to low on my priority list. However, I'll be working on getting more posts put up so I'll be ahead of the curve.

Thanks for the patience!

Wow. September 1st. Can someone explain to me how that happened?
Usually I welcome the beginning of fall as a relief of the ridiculously hot humid weather of August. I feel that my summer was really short so I'm surprised to see that we're entering the last quarter of the year so soon. Time to embrace it. Think of all the cute sweaters to wear, the hot chocolate or mulled cider to drink, and of course, autumn leaves to admire. Talk about a fleeting thing, autumn leaves are so pretty yet so transitory. Unless you have a shop like Flores Del Sol, where you can preserve the beauty of autumn leaves and flowers for months to come. All of you Etsy newbies, come look at her photography. I love how the bursts of color contrast against the sleek white backgrounds. What a way to command attention!

Harvest Oak

Woodland Moss

Harvest Centerpiece

I love the combination of the white milk glass (a personal favorite) and the bright color. How stunning. Check out the rest of her shop, you won't be disappointed.
