Terrarium

I noticed that this little guy was shown in one of my earlier posts, but I hadn’t shared him with y’all yet. So here you go!

This is Terrarium that I made not too long ago. It is made with eco-Felt, wool felt balls, embroidery thread, ribbon, cotton gingham, and some acrylic paint. The jar is a recycled/up-cycled jar with tiny handles on the sides. It’s a really lovely piece that is actually for sale at the Handmade Galleries in LA.  This is one of my favorite terrariums to date. It’s nice and big and is quite lovely. Each flower (felt ball) is hand embroidered with painstaking detail and is nestled amongst leaves of grass. There are three unique flowers inside the terrarium as well as one small flower on the outside of the terrarium (on the bow). Green grass is even painted on the bottom of the jar to give it even more dimension.

I hope you like this piece as much as I do.

Good Luck Charms

I would like to introduce to you my newest addition to my Etsy shop and the Handmade Galleries, Pink Toe Press’ LUCKY FEET! These Lucky Feet are a lovely little good-luck charm that you can carry with you wherever you go. They are a lovely new alternative to the traditional “good luck” charms.

Throughout my formative years,  I always wanted to have my very own “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot,” but I was never lucky privileged enough to get one. My parents were pretty smart about which fads they endorsed and which they discouraged, and a “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot” was never mine.

That being said, my father is a hunter and a practical man,  he did offer to bring me home the foot of a rabbit from one of his hunting trips, but I never did take him up on that For years I envied all the other kids who had the brightly-colored lucky animal’s foot dangling from their backpacks or trapper-keepers…but I digress.

NOW as a vegetarian and maker, I have found a lovely solution to my childhood dream of having the foot of a poor, dead critter on my bag. These Lucky Feet are handmade with love and care, crafted from Eco-Felt, ribbon and string, and can be clipped just about anywhere. You can use them as a zipper pull, key chain, or an accent on a bag.  An added bonus is that they are cruelty free, animal friendly, and vegan friendly.   I currently have a variety of color options available for these feet, and they come in “Rabbit” or “Cat.”
