Finally Summer!

I have heard that for much of the country that summer came a little late this year.  Well it is officially summer now and I hope you are enjoying it where ever you live.

Here are some wonderful summery finds for you to enjoy!

This bright cotton wide brim hat is perfect for keeping the sun off your head while you are outside in your garden or relaxing at the beach. It is constructed of a bright modern cotton fabric. I used two layers of interfacing for the brim. The inside cap portion of the hat is lined with muslin. The muslin is a great lining fabric because it is loosely woven light weight fabric which allows air to move through it - great for those sunny days.

Measures: 22" (55.9 cm) head measurement. The brim is 3 1/4" wide,(8.3 cm).

Measure circumference of head - start just above the top of your ears, wrap tape measure gently around head making certain tape lies midway on your occipital bone (that little bump in the middle of the back of your head).

It will be mailed in a high quality polyethylene mailing envelope, stuffed with paper to prevent crushing and wrapped in tissue paper.

For this fun summery cup cozy I put a bright yellow sun on this hand crocheted turquoise wool cup cozy. It fits most paper cups and glasses. 

My cup cozies are each a unique work of art! I love creating each and every one. With a degree in Textile Design and years of experience my cup cozies reflect my love of bringing smiles and being eco friendly!

These earrings are FUN. Light and airy and swingy. See the matching ring in a separate listing.

This is a graphic under is smooth. NOTE: These earrings are NOT waterproof.

The listing is for earrings with fish hook wire, but are also available as clip on earrings. 

The 1 inch Fish Hook wire is Hypo-Allergenic. I also include a FREE pair of ear nuts ( the little plastic pieces on the end) because this type of ear hook does not like to stay in my ears.

The earrings are hand pressed by me on my professional quality button machine. Graphic is professionally printed on high quality paper.

The picture is covered with mylar.

A precious hummingbird perches on this grapevine wreath to welcome your guests. A double bow of bright pink and pink florals sits under the hummingbird. The wreath is filled with beautiful Spring blossoms of pink, white, and yellow, along with green stems. 

This is perfect for Spring and Summer, and would make a wonderful Mother's Day gift!

This exact wreath has sold. My wreaths are one-of-a-kind custom created pieces. I re-create each wreath after it sells, and each new creation varies slightly from the original. Your order will be very similar to the wreath pictured and you will love your custom creation!
