Great Handmade Items.

Soft as the first snow fall, this white winter scarf is hand knit with an acrylic and polyester blend yarn. First Snow scarf has a pleasing nubby texture and measures 5" x 45". This knit scarf is lightweight and warm. The soft white color reminds me of freshly fallen snow. But unlike icy cold snow, this beautiful scarf will keep you warm and cozy.

First Snow fashion scarf can be worn with just about any outfit and makes a lovely fall or winter accessory. Easy to care for machine wash and dry. You will enjoy wearing this pretty scarf over and over again.

 This is a gator hair clip.

I crocheted an ivory colored cover for the gator metal clip, and sewed on two burnt orange crocheted flowers.

I used 100% cotton embroidery floss.

The clip is 1 3/4" long. The flowers are approx. 1" across.

Pisces: Feb. 19-March 20*

Many astrologers associate Pisces, The Fish, with the color turquoise. I selected blue green baroque shaped glass beads and 6mm Crystazzi aqua bicone crystals, and separated them with 13mm silver plated filigree tubes to match the tiny Pisces charm. Pisces is known as an intuitive, emotional, imaginative, and changeable sign. This bracelet is best suited for wrist sizes 7 to 9.

*If you were born within a day or even two days of the beginning or end of this range, accurate determination of your Sun sign might require your year of birth and perhaps even the time of birth.

 This listing is for a custom made basket for the flower girl to carry. Let me know the colors of your wedding and I will be happy to make a basket for the special flower girl to carry. This wedding colors where pink and black. You can have just one color added to the side or two. Size is 9" across the top of the basket x 5" tall the side of the basket and 11" tall center of handle of basket. Please allow about two to three weeks for me to make this, most of the time I have them done sooner. Also this basket can be adjusted to make it a little bigger or smaller.

 Inspired by the Edgar Allen Poe poem, these raven earrings have been handcrafted from polymer clay. They are 1 3/4" long, including their silver plated ear wires and would be a striking and dramatic addition to your earring collection. These Raven Earrings have been sealed for a high gloss finish.

 This is a set of three Monmouth Western Stoneware cups in the popular Mojave pattern. These were some very avant-guard dishes with banding and square handles, heavy, hand-applied matte tan speckled glaze, and a very modern design.

The glaze color seems to shift from reddish brown to greenish tan, depending on the lighting. They are very sturdy cups, and the glaze seems completely untouched by time. These are the tea cups, not the mugs, from this pattern.

The maple leaf marking on the bottom indicates they were made in Monmouth, Illinois, at the Monmouth/Maple Leaf Pottery company, which was a part of the Western Stoneware company. The Mojave pattern was introduced in 1967 and this mark dates from that era.

3 3/4 in. Diameter x 2 1/2 in. Tall; Handle is 1 1/4 in. (US)
9.5 cm. Diameter x 6. 2 cm. Tall; Handle is 3 cm. (Metric)

Condition notes: These may have been displayed, but were more likely used. I didn't find any evidence of wear or crazing in the glaze. There are a couple of thin spots inside one of the cups, which happened when it was made.
