December Handmade Favorites



I guess I get a little dark and cozy this time of year, because I’ve been really drawn to blackity black lately. Here are a few handmade things (or things you can use when you create) I’ve been looking at this month.

Wish someone a merry Christmas with this beautiful card.


Amazing vintage fabric with crosses and dots. This is very similar to a vintage silk fabric I have!


A simple onyx bead necklace that would look great with an LBD (but then, what doesn’t?)


Beautiful cotton lace for your Winter sewing.


I’m really intrigued by these hand crafted perfumes in recycled beach glass, like this Rose Garden Cologne.


I’m a sucker for pin shank buttons, and these jet black glass ones are big and beautiful.


A gorgeous hand print depicting the sun and planets to scale.


Get ready for the new year with this vegan detox soap set, handmade by Herbivore Botanicals.

I can’t deal with how pretty this silk antique French ribbon is.


1930s stripes and dots cotton fabric. Imagine what you could do with some carefully placed pleats.

Beautiful photos and ideas! Just be VERY careful because Tea Tree oil is extremely toxic to cats.


Wow, I did not know that. Thanks!

Had no idea about the tea tree oil and cats. We often use shampoo with tea tree for our dogs, labeled for their use.

That ribbon and lace are gorgeous!
