Members of the EtsyChristmasinJuly Team have many Freesia items in their shops! Here are a few!

Amy from BeadsandThreadsbyAmy made these as party favors for her niece’s spa-day sleepover party. They were a big hit with all the girls so she decided to list them. They have been a popular item, mostly for use in spa packages and the like. It’s an adorable little pattern, and the microfiber towel is perfect for facials and manicures.

Camille and Susan Thorton from upCdooZ wonder what little girl would not want to look sassy with her tweety bird dress and matching shorties? They feel that the coordinating colors make the ‘freesia’ really pop. Girls of all ages should have fun clothing with maybe a little attitude.

Karen from APaperParadise shares that her business began with her making cards for friends and family. As her business grows she feels the need to go ‘above and beyond’ the cards in her shop when designing for her family. She made this for her daughter who urged her to list it immediately. Now all Karen has to worry about is how to beat this for her graduation!

Ramona from UrdHandicrafts was thinking about making a nice spring piece, so freesia was a natural choice when it comes to color. Spring jewelry should look fresh and vibrant, just like this ring.

Barbara from AuntBsAttic shares that seldom does a detailed story of inspiration get included in her listing descriptions, but like her Cherokee listings, Secret Garden haunted the Attic until she was willing to share it’s story. Barbara lives in a very rural area, nestled in the rolling foothills and surrounded by endless acres of pastures and woods surrounded by mountains. Bordering, dissecting, or appearing as islands in the middle of pastures are wooded areas, generally left because they are protecting small cemeteries from long ago. Some have broken, decaying split rail fences, while others have rusted wrought iron. Secret Garden pays tribute to these reverent places protected by the fences and sheltered by the woods, which are havens for their natural vegetation and breeding grounds for their wildlife. The white ruffled fabric holds the skeleton keys. If you sit quietly, those keys unlock the recorded history of our land, as well as open your mind to untold stories of days long past. They also unlatch the windows to the future as you catch a glimpse of the well being of our natural wildlife. What better depiction of past, present and future living together – paloma, and all the shades of gray to black in wrought iron scrolls representing the past – and freesia – in the butterflies and wildflowers climbing the fences, representing the present and future.
