Rose Gold

Arek from ARPELC says:

Delicate red sapphire ring handcrafted in 14k rose gold. Simple, beautiful and very romantic with tiny heart cut out in the back. It might be a perfect gift for wife, daughter, sister or just for you!

Sandy from TesoroDelSol says:

Most of my designs are inspired by ethnic styles derived by my travels to exotic places. I created a simple bangle from rose gold filled metal and gave it a subtle Moroccan look by forging this scroll pattern into it.

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

I have taken a slightly different twist to Rose Gold and have these rose punches that are gold in colour! I imagined these to be used as confetti at a wedding, wedding anniversary or engagement party!

Ina from InaSudjana says:

Oh I LOVE rose gold. It is the sweet and soft reddish tinge that makes it stand out as oppose to stark gold.

I use it in almost all of my items that have ‘gold’ in it… including this headband.

Sweater Parties

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

What is so special about this ornament is that a piece of a vintage sweater was given to me to use in a creation from a 92-year-old neighbor of mine. She was a seamstress for many years and is trying to find places for her items to go and be used instead of just being thrown away. She came from an era where you did not just throw away items… once an item was done being used in its original state you would reuse it in something else. She only had a small piece of the sweater left so this ornament is very limited. I am making one for her family and one for our family the rest will be for sale. Her piece of sweater will go on to bring many joy as they hang these unique and special snowmen on their trees.

Barbara from MermaidsHatbox says:

In the 90’s, when my husband and I went out for Christmas shopping in the city we traditional went also to the Christmas market, to a special restaurant and to the Laura Ashley store to look for winter warm sweaters.

The fashion of Laura Ashley was not really my style, but the sweaters are special. This was the only Ugly Christmas sweater in my collection.

Now I have only two of this collection. Those that I found the most beautiful and the ‘Ugly’ which I bought 1993. It was long, long ago that I wear this sweater, but I’m fascinated by the variety of knitting and embroidery every time I saw it.

Giftable DIY

MaryAnne from KeepsakesStudio says:

I think this is a wonderful DIY project pattern. While the pattern envelope shows it produced in blue, I would love to see it in a 60’s combo, like turquoise and pink. Even black and white! Please see listing for more detailed pictures.

Jul’s Craft Crazy from JulsCraftCrazy says:

I have a number of needle craft kids in my supplies and destash section.

They would be wonderful to make for Christmas, or to receive as a gift!

Luxe Materials

Susana from CherishCeramics says:

My Russian flower porcelain brooch is a very special accessory.
I created a collection of Russian inspired brooches a while ago, inspired by the Russian folk designs.

I read as a child a lot of illustrated stories with mysterious Russian princesses, that were extravagant and beautiful, dressed in luxurious outfits, and this brooch is a result of these memories.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

This rough crystal and soft leather necklace fits right into the luxe materials theme. Vintage brass chain ties it all together. I love using the raw crystals in jewelry. It makes you stand out from the crowd and feel special! Amethyst and citrine are two of my favorites and they blend so well together.

Sandy from TesoroDelSol says:

If I had to choose one of my more LUXE pieces it would be this Raw Amethyst necklace. The rough edges of the stone paired with the 24K gold electroplated edges create the perfect balance. The pendant suspends from a shimmering gold pyrite beaded chain evoking a sensuous and flirty statement piece.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

Well, apparently one of the Luxe finishes is ceramic, so that is right up my alley! Obviously I have lots of ceramic wares in my shop, but this one I thought would fit the Luxe theme with its timeless texture and luxe-urious glaze!

Mid-Century Modern Looks

Carmen Beecher from CarmensArt says:

 I am very excited about my latest seascape, “Fall Sunrise.” I live on the Space Coast of Florida, and every year around this time the surf starts kicking up. Combine that with the beautiful sunrise and you have a lovely subject to paint. It’s amazing how in just a few steps I can leave the ordinary world of traffic and noise and enter the soothing atmosphere of the beach.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

I love vintage jewelry and get my inspiration for my recycled creations from the vintage treasures I find. Pins are one of my favorites and were a popular accessory for coat lapels years ago!

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls says:

We love Mid Century Kitchen & Home Decor. Many of our Tablecloths, Kitchen Towels and Dishes feature that trendy, hippy, 50’s/60’s fun vibe. Here is an Apron that we love for its kitchy graphics!

Rheta Parziale from VintageEves says:

I wrote a blog post recently about a designer at Copco, Michael Lax, who developed some of the most iconic mid-century modern pieces.

Most of the pictures link back to other shop listings on Etsy.
