Measuring Up

Blog Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

We think of being good enough or things meeting ones expectations when we think of measuring up to someone or something. For our purposes we want all of our items to measure up to 10 inches tall.

What items do you have in your shop that measure up to 10 inches tall?

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset says two of my passions are vintage items and green glass. With that said, these vintage green glass pasta canisters hit both my passions in one swoop…I had two sets of these canisters and am down to one. therefore, I believe someone else out there has my same two passions. Does anyone else love vintage green glass?

Becky from CottonPickingFolkArt said these are the epitome of summer. When we spend more time outside, it ‘s nice to come have some light, season inspired decor on the inside.I enjoy creating my own patterns, and bringing them to life. I love to eat local strawberries, and with their limited season,these serve as a reminder of summer goodness!

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz states the red poppies always remind me of my native country Germany. In early summer they seemed to pop up everywhere. There were entire meadows filled with red poppies and blue bachelor buttons. Sometimes it looked like a field of red, green and blue stretching out to the horizon. I loved it so much and I miss this sight!

Solveiga from Knitwoolsocks says I have always enjoyed knitting. I love creating pretty things in beautiful colors. I love to see the item that I am working on begin to take shape and turn into a finished product that someone will enjoy. My socks are knitted with love from the heart and positive thoughts. My goal is to make you smile and bring you Joy.

Mairi from mairidesign said you can make sure you meet all expectations by checking yourself in this classic beauty, with a stylized rose in your choice of colours – purple or pink are clear favourites. Measuring 26.3 x 20.3 cm (10+3/8″ x 8+1/4″), my Glasgow Rose, Mackintosh style mirror is based on the work of the artist, designer and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who has inspired many artists from Glasgow, Scotland and beyond.

Sandra from SDDigitalDesign states this 8” x 10” digital print was inspired by all the fond memories I have climbing trees as a child. To me a tree symbolizes balance, strength and growth. I felt as tall and as beautiful as the tree itself. Although I’m not climbing trees these days I will continue to cherish those times when I did. I hope the tree in my design inspires you as it did for me.
