Also, I may be on hiatus for a couple of weeks here. My family (as in my WHOLE family) is coming to visit for two weeks over the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be busy, and I plan on doing lots of crafts with the kiddies, but I'm not sure how much of a chance I will have to take photos, upload and post to the blog while they are here. I may do some posting, but I'm not making any promises! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
On to the finds:
Holiday Owl Ornament Needle Felting Kit $12 from Fancy Tiger
This seller has a nice assortment of beginning needle felting kits. Really cute stuff!
Slice and Bake, Vintage Bakelite Buttons $19.80 from Green Ray Productions
These are vintage Bakelite buttons from the 1930s. I love vintage notions and could come up with half a million places to use these Bakelite buttons. These on their own would be a great stocking stuffer, or a pair an assortment of vintage buttons with old lace.
Heather Bailey Designer Felt $2.25 to $4.25 per 9"x12" sheet
Good felt is hard to find. The polyester stuff in craft stores tends to pill, and all of your hard work can go to crap pretty quickly. Heather Bailey recently came out with wool-blend and bamboo felts.
Custom / initial / handcarved rubber stamp $12 from lilimandrill
This is so simple and would make a beautiful, personal gift. Custom made in France (très chic, no?)
Vintage German Glass Glitter, Blue Tourmaline $2.99 from Bird Song Studio
Our glitter is imported from Germany and made with a real silver base which will allow the glitter to develop a lovely tarnished vintage patina over time.
Produced by Bavarian Glass Artisans and crafted in small batches by hand to create a superior grade glitter. A multi-stage process and multiple coats of pure silver give the glitter it's exceptional sparkle and shine.
This is real glitter, made from glass. Beautiful stuff, and this seller has a variety of colors to choose from. Note that this is made from glass--it's not for kids.
