****Click here to visit shop

Shabby Chic Decor ..what better then parchment and wild roses. I printed a vintage song sheet of music, 'To A Wild Rose' onto acid free antique colored parchment paper then painted wild roses, leaves and complimentary flowers onto the parchment.

Hand Knit Socks Adult Thick Comfy Wool Blend. Pale Fruit Sherbet. Strawberry Sherbet. Orange Sherbet. Lemon Sherbet. Blueberry Sherbet

****Click to visit shop

These thick soft Hand Knit Adult Socks are so comfortable, you'll hate to take them off. They are made with a machine washable Wool and Acrylic blend yarn in a fun mix I'm calling Pale Fruit Sherbet. They remind me of Sherbet Ice Cream, in shades of Pale Pink, Pale Coral, Pale Orange, Pale Yellow and Pale Blue, giving the illusion of Strawberry Sherbet, Orange Sherbet, Lemon Sherbet and Blueberry Sherbet. There is Whitish yarn along with each color, giving them each a Heathered look. NOTE: The shades are even more pale then my camera allows.

They would be great to wear relaxing in the evenings in your easy chair, or to keep your toes toasty when you are skiing or hiking or wearing your Birks. They are also great as bed-socks!

The top of my socks have an unusual edge, and then there is about 1/2 inch of ribbing. On the legs and down the top of the feet is a modified rib stitch, so they will stretch nicely without feeling too tight.

The design is fun and interesting, but not too frilly; understated yet classy. The bottom of the feet are done in the smooth stockinette knit stitch.

They are thick and comfy and good for men or women. They would also make a great gift for the elderly!

Machine Washable.

Women's size Medium (Shoe Size 8-10) or Men's size Small (Shoe Size 7-9).

If you want this sock in a Women's Size Small, just put a note in the Message to Seller and I can shorten the foot of each sock for you.

Interchangeable Red Aventurine Watch Band Bracelet with Copper Watch Face and Earrings

Interchangeable Red Aventurine Watch Band Bracelet with Copper Watch Face and Earrings

Comes with watch face!

This watch comes with brass rings attached to be worn with interchangeable watch bracelets. This watch band is 5 3/4", which is a size small. However, I can make any size that is comfortable for you.

This listing is for sizes small, or medium (band) please indicate which size needed in notes to seller. If large or extra large band is needed let me know and we can post a new listing. These bands will be $2.00 more

Measure your wrist with string or dental floss, then find out how long it is and let me know.
The usual length of a watch face is 1 3/4" to 2 1/4"

Sizes are as follows:
Small: 5" - 5 3/4" without the watch face
Medium: 6" -6 1/4"
Large: 6 1/2" - 6 3/4"
X Large: 7 - 7 1/4"

All of my watches are quartz clocks. A quartz clock is a clock that uses an electronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with very precise frequency, so that quartz clocks are at least an order of magnitude more accurate than good mechanical clocks. Generally, some form of digital logic counts the cycles of this signal and provides a numeric time display, usually in units of hours, minutes, and seconds. Since the 1970s, they have become the most widely used timekeeping technology.

Hooray for Autumn ACEO collection - 3 Fall Foliage Prints


(from "ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card.

The reason for this is, of course, that Art Cards are made to be traded! But while artists were happily trading cards, the general public was left out in the cold, having no Art Cards to trade. A group of artists realized this, and quickly made their cards available for sale at remarkably low prices so that everyone could join in the fun!"

This listing is for the three ACEOs shown in the first 3 listing photos, each a 2.5 x 3.5" print from my original photo. (The last 2 photos show you the size of your actual print as well as an assortment of ACEOs available in my shop - those are not a part of this listing, and are just shown for reference). Your Art Cards will be professionally printed, and will be titled, signed, and dated on the back. All of these photos were taken in Maine, in and around Acadia National park during the month of October. Keep them all for your collection, or split them up and give them as gifts! I've priced them as a group so that when you compare them to my regularly priced ACEOs, you're getting one for only $1!

Other images in my shop are available as ACEOs - just ask! And I would LOVE to honor the original idea behind the cards, and trade mine for yours - again, just ask!
