It's been a while since I visited my friends over at Handmade Artists, so let's check out what's new.
The first item I saw was a new creation from my freind Monika at MyEuropeanTouch. She does amazing mosaic work, taking old china and boxes and musical instruments, and turning them into something new and amazaing, and BEAUTIMUS. Like this Mosaic Teapot Table Lamp. This past fall I had the opportunity to meet Monika in person and she is as beautiful as her creations. You can read about our visit, complete with pictures, here.
You may not know this about me, but I am super patriotic. My daddy was a Navy man, and I have many loved ones serving in the military today. I teach American History, (not social studies) in homeschool, and I still stand and cover my heart when the flag passes me in a parade. So this lovely USA flag rag rug quickly caught my eye. My late aunt use to make these rag rugs, so I know just how much work goes into each one, a true labor of love. You can find this rug in the shop, loynd1959.
I only have one word for this Jarred necklace and earring set...stunning! I love the look of faceted beads, they catch and throw light like nobody's business. This set, and many others, can be found at olufemiojetunde.
Well, these are my finds this morning, but don't just stop with these, you can support small family business and the handmade community by shopping at Handmade Artists, or my shop site, The Craft Star.
