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.
It’s All In Black and White – so perfectly opposite. As a monochrome form of visual arts, B&W images can be starkly contrasted black and white or combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of grey called greyscale. The CIJ Team are delighted to share their B&W and Greyscale works of art, home decor and accessories.
Graphite pencil drawings. I usually present here my portraits of animals, but today I have something very special. Original illustrations that were presented in my exhibition of fairy tale illustrations. Drawings are framed in a beautiful wooden frame and passepartout. I attach a catalog from the exhibition to the purchased drawing.
I was originally commissioned to create this tea cosy as a thank you gift as they had a beautiful black and white kitchen, I added the pom poms as an extra special detail.
Here is one of my many Classic Black and White gift tag sets. The Butterfly set is one of my favorites.
I think these black and white hand painted by ME stemware glasses are so much fun…a great addition to anyone’s bar decor or saved for a special occasion. Here’s to YOU!
I love the graphic appeal of black and white! This clutch is fun and easy to carry! In a cotton print that I call foam and bubble with white background and black dots. It’s a nice little clutch for necessities on the go. Padded and with a wrap around strap that can go on a belt or slip over your wrist.
I love working with black color. The contrast on a white background is fantastic. Simple yet effective. This stippled phalaenopsis is delicate and will fit in perfectly in any home design.
This stylish cushion cover set will complete your black and white home interior design. Elephant cushion covers are made from black and white pattern cotton fabrics.One of them has black and white animal print, the other is made from black and white pattern cotton fabric blocks and has a white cotton block in a middle with beautiful oriental elephant embroidery.
This black and white chalkboard print fabric with words describing God was the perfect fit for my Bible tote bag. The fabric is so beautiful and a great conversation starter as it will have old and new Christians either asking questions or being reminded of the many names our God can be called by.
I think I created this because I think black is elegant and chic – and I didn’t really have anything in my shop with that precise touch of class.
What’s black and white and fabulous?
My love of film noir surfaced once again with these black and white curvaceous earrings. These uniquely shaped hoops are vintage black aluminum stamped with a snake skin pattern. The center cut out has an equally unusual shape. Inside each cut out is a gorgeous round white dangling freshwater pearl.
This black and white infinity scarf is ideal for the summer. The scarf is made of two fabrics. One side is white with little black Polka dots, the other side is black, embroidered with flowers and embellished with flowers in different black and white patterns.
Crochet yoga socks, yin yang gift. According to Taoist principles, the forces of everything in the universe are in constant motion. As the movement continues, each of the forces of energy gradually changes into the other, yin to yang and yang to yin. This is the cycle of all energy. When these opposite energies work in unison the way nature dictates, there is a perfect balance. The yin yang symbol of equal halves, one dark and one light, but also opposing forces come together to create and generate energy – life. Yin creates the form and grows it while the yang generates action energy and expands it. This is the bringing together of two halves to make a complete whole.
Black and white are great shades and they go with anything. For your special table décor on mantles and candles
this candle bling will make wonderful statement. Gift it with a candle to Friends and family or charming housewarming / hostess gift.

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.
The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak, peak, and post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.
Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.
2017 Holiday Trends On Etsy are: All The Greetings, Greenery, Modern Farmhouse, A Fragrant Season, Pawsitively Great, Gingerbread Everything, Win The Gift Exchange, Naughty Is The New Nice, Just For Them, and Moody Hues (Nordic Snowfall and Deep Jewels).
All The Greetings
I actually have a Merry Merry Everything Christmas Card featuring a rather dashing gargoyle.
I created the above design after I had been using beads, made here in the Czech Republic, with my glass jewellery and knew that they would enhance a stylised evergreen tree. I had sketched several Christmas themed ornaments in this simple, swish-curve style and chose the perfect green and iridescent glass for my final design. Topping it off with a glass crystal is, simply, the cherry on the cake – or rather the diamond on the tree.
A Fragrant Season
I wrote this Holiday potpourri Ball DIY post on my blog a while ago and it fits the 2017 holiday trend theme “A Fragrant Season”! It is a very easy and enjoyable project.
Your puppy’s on the nice list! (Was there ever any doubt?) Make sure Santa Paws has someplace to leave the treats and toys on the big day for your furry friend. This Christmas stocking was made just for dogs (although, dog lovers can also enjoy it)!
For the holidays l created two small wreaths dedicated to children, because they are decorated with clay family members (crafted by me), shaped as ginger bread. But not only for children: l thought this decor could also be a fun way to announce a new baby is arriving. I have two of these decors: with one and two kids. I hope this item will work also in this way, not only as Christmas decor.
Win The Gift Exchange
A bead embroidered seashell pin is the last thing anyone would expect to find in a gift exchange, and in a very good way at that! Perfect for someone who really wishes it were summer and can’t wait for the sunny weather to come around again.
Win the gift exchange with this handmade crochet bath pouf! Great idea for stocking stuffer, too
Did you draw names for holiday gifts? Did you draw the hip retro/mod one in your gift exchange group? We’ve got you covered! No worries about sizing. No worries about duplicate gifts.
The wasabi, dark teal and avocado three petal flowers engender a mod retro vibe in these dangle earrings. The hand knotted flowers sway softly on the waxed linen thread creating a floating effect, particularly fun against a backdrop of tresses.
Naughty Is The New Nice
Show the world you know how to be “naughty” in a nice way by taking a step back in retro time with this sexy cartoon pin up girl scarf pendant! Perfect way to warm up those cold winter days… or evenings!
Cheer up your cozy evenings at home with these fun socks made to look like Santa’s socks.
Of course SLS has a Christmas card for the ‘naughty’ one on your list. This card is funny without stepping too far over the line and makes a great card for a husband or wife. As an interactive card, the mirror inside always gets a fun reaction and it’s one of our biggest hits at holiday craft fairs. Merry Christmas everyone!
My extremely Naughty Santa! He lives in Ukraine now but he can leave me anytime and go to another county soon!

Moody Hues (Nordic Snowfall and Deep Jewels)
These jeweled scarves are done in jewel tones of red, purple, green and blue.
These handmade earrings feature gorgeous sapphire blue vintage lamp work beads set off by sparkling silver accents. The spider-web lace like detail on these glass cage beads remind me a bit of frost, and the colour simply takes my breath away!
This deep jewels bracelet combines metallic blue with silver and a white tassel to top it off.

We all like to feel pampered once in a while. What better place to feel this way than Home Sweet Home? We checked in with our teamies to see what they love and/or sell that’s a luxury for at-home use, and here’s what they shared:
I’m happy to present you handmade felted shoes made of softest merino (Australia) wool of anthracite colour. Merino wool is the best wool in the world! You feel these shoes like a second skin on your feet and they are perfectly light and tender. The shape is slim, which wraps around your feet. They are soft, perfect for soothing your tired feet at the end of a long day. And the anthracite color is good for every interior also. Sole is made of natural latex.
Hi to Everyone,
We want to present a beautiful mustard velvet pillow cover. It can bring color to your house, texture, warmth, design, and comfort.
Hi everyone, thanks for opening this lovely thread.
Probably our best-selling little home luxuries are our beautiful leather butterfly and fish key chains. They’re printed using a unique technique on pure leather and padded to be super tactile. They make really wonderful tokens to say, ‘Welcome to your new home’, but are also just a gorgeous pick-me-up to keep in your pocket or as a bag charm when you want a hint of luxury.
All my creations are based on my mood and my daughter’s mood! These sterling silver napkin rings would make a wonderful gift!
So many times, when making a purchase, home decorating is not at the top of the list of things to buy. Essentials like clothing, food, school supplies, etc. usually take precedence over little things like home decor luxuries. Although these types of items are not at the top of the list, they do make wonderful gift ideas.
One of the favorite home decor items in my shop is the cascading tea cup floral arrangements. These are not only elegant but they are also a conversation piece too. The floral arrangements compliment any room in the house and are quite capable of reminding you about the good things in life every time you look at them.
Love your home and give it a little exotic luxury with this multi functional pillow designed in the silhouette of a women made with African inspired cotton fabrics and poly fibre filling all machine washable. The pillow is multi functional because it is not only decorative but also acts as a neck rest in an unconventional way.
A super soft, chunky knit blanket, hand knitted throw made from hand spun super bulky yarn. Perfect for wrapping around your shoulders or simply to add a splash of color to your home.
Home luuxuries! How about a nice warm bath? You can soak in the tub and wash with these sweet soaps. My mother Pearl never showered but loved to soak in the tub, even when she had trouble getting out! I was there to help!
Owning Waterford crystal is definitely a lovely luxury. These champagne flutes make any occasion an enhanced luxury event. Cheers.
Many thanks for all the great shares!
Until next time,
