Flower and Fairy Art Doll Sculpture Statue
Story behind this Product:
I love spring and summer and like to envision the faerie world out helping the flowers and plants along as they wake up from their winter sleep. So with this doll, I'm thinking it may be hard work for a flower to grow and open up, so this little fairy brings her some refreshment in the form of little dew drops.

 Owl Always Love You ~ Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow
Story behind this Product:
I used a cream/ivory muslin material for the pillow front.
The sweet owl couple and accessories were hand cut from eco-felt, which is made of recycled plastic bottles! Everything is hand-stitched and hand-embroidered. A cream satin ribbon was added to hold the wedding rings. The pillow back is a very soft vanilla colored flannel material.
**YOUR pillow can be customized with your wedding colors, names/initials, and wedding date (optional).

Woven Rag Rug Table Runner ~ Heather
Story behind this Product:
My wife and I have been weaving for about 15 years. We learned from my parents. One of our looms is about 100 years old and another was built by my dad. We also use several table looms. It is fun to take something that has outlived its usefulness for one purpose and make it into something new that is beautiful and useful. This is what our ancestors did -- Use it up, wear it out. We love to weave and want to share our items with you. They are wonderful additions to your own home or as a one of a kind gift for someone.
"...wanted you to know how great they look after being laundered. I am always concerned about the fringe on rugs as they can become tangled or matted. This did not happen with these rugs. Even after several trips into the washer, they look perfect - like new..." Words from one of our customers.
GO GREEN!!! Celebrate our earth and do things that will leave it a wonderful place for generations to come. Rag rugs are a great way to Go Green. We recycle clean used fabrics to make beautiful, washable, wearable items for your home. The subtle blend of purples, burgundies, and blues in this 35" x 13" table runner is soft and pleasing to the eye. It is made of several different flannel fabrics. The runner may be machine washed and line dried.

  3. Hello. Love how you have people show the story behind the item they made. Very cool.

    I hope you won't mind if I post a request here. I am auctioning spots in an upcoming Souvenir Spotlight focusing on Texas themed gifts on my blog...and 100% will be donated to help victims of the recent Texas wildfires. Also, I am happy to promote items being sold to benifit fire victims for free. I was wondering if you could pass this info on to the members of Etsy Austin. Thanks!
