I'm Back With Some New Etsy Store Items!!

Hey guys!! I know it's been waaaay too long...thanks for sticking around! I explained in one of my last posts that I would not be posting alot this summer. I'll tell you, I've just felt like a big ole slug! No creative juices flowing and no energy. I'll blame it on the hot weather! I posted about how hot it has been here. Well, I just thought 102 was hot...ha! We has some days that were 115 and maybe a few degrees even hotter!! We broke all kinds of records and at one point we were the hottest place in the country! Oh my! However, today it's about 89 and raining...YIPEE!!! Maybe my yard will turn green again. It's been so hard keeping everything alive this year...even the trees. I hope they live! I hope wherever you are you are having good weather! Ok, enough about the weather...lol. It just really has had an effect on my mood lately!




I decided it was high time for me to get busy on some new Etsy store items. My creativity came back (finally) and I got to work! I will be listing lots of new items every week so be sure to keep checking my store. Now that school is starting Monday I can get more done!




I just got some really cute birds in from market this week and love the way they look in the middle of the arrangements. All of my arrangements are full of beautiful flowers, berries, sticks and foliage. I am very picky when it comes to silk flowers...just letting you know it's all good quality.




Here is another smaller nesting bird arrangement in a clay pot. Perfect for fall or mixed in with everyday decor!





This little birdie has flowers painted on it...too cute!

This one is in a pretty fleur de lis metal container. It would make a great centerpiece!



Pretty green container....this looks good on my table!



This one has more of a fall flair with the pumpkins.



It's almost fall ya'll! Yipee! I sold alot of these beaded pumpkin arrangements last year and hope to have some different pumpkins soon.






Super cute scarecrow tassel! I bought several scarecrows in case you are interested. I will be making several more tassels for my store next week too.



I got busy on frames too! Love this color combination! All of the ribbons I use are very high quality too. I am very picky with ribbon too!




The flower on this one really sparkles! The brown ribbon is embroidered with beads...beautfiul!




Love the zebra and fleur de lis together. It's hard to explain the color of the ribbon behind the zebra, but it's not pink at all. It is more rusty/coral and tends to change color depending on how you look at it. For some reason this ribbon does not photograph well. It's beautful though!




This frame is perfect for the fall months. Love the rusty embroidered ribbon!




More of the embroidered beaded ribbon...love the butterfly! This frame would also look good mixed in with fall decor.






This frame would make the perfect gift for a piano player. The piano is just beautiful! I only bought a few at market.




The cross on this frame is stunning! I have a limited amount of these too.




Love the embroidered ribbon on this frame. It is very similar in color to the one I could not explain with the zebra ribbon...lol! It's a silky taffeta that changes color depending on how you look at it. It's beautiful and blends well with rust, corals and reds.




Here's one with a touch of lepard! Love these colors...great for fall and everyday.

Again, thanks for sticking with me over this boring, hot, uncreative summer! lol...I will have more to post about now that fall is just around the corner.




Have a great weekend!!

Hi Kristen, good to see you back!

Your arragnements are so lovely. Your work is always beautiful. The scarecrow tassel is adorable! I look forward to seeing more of your fall items.

It has been so hot this summer, hasn't it? I've been in TX a lot this summer and it is super hot there, too. I'm glad it was cooler for you guys today and you're getting some much needed rain. yay!

I'm glad you're back Kristen! I've been hoping to see more things added in your shop. I've been searching for another rooster tassel. I'm looking forward to fall and more of your posts!

Wow, you have been busy! Everything looks so beautiful! Mom and my youngest brother are in visiting from Fort Smith. They have been loving the weather we are having here in Virginia. My brother has actually been cold! lol! Our temps have been in the mid 80's most of the week. Hope you have a great weekend!

Denise said...

They all look gorgeous Kristen. I love the scarecrow tassel. Were you going to start a new linky party? I know you mentioned you weren't doing Show and Sell anymore but thought had said something about doing something new?

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
This all looks so beautiful. I'm trying to hold back on buying until our next home or you know I would want something to add to our home. I'm ready to decorate again.

I hope you are enjoying your summer. ~Melissa :)
