Fairy Folk Art and Shabby Pillows

Today's Etsy find and share...
Using vintage fabric and buttons The Pink Tulip mixes old with new creating the most unique ornaments I have ever seen. From shabby to Victorian, folk art to fairies, she does it all. Please take a moment to visit both of her shops, they are stocked full of one of a kind mostly pink handmade goodies.
Spun cotton and needle felted Easter Ornaments, scrap faces, and pants made of crepe paper are just a few of her unique designs. Don't miss the reproduction 19th century Victorian ornament featuring two scrap cats holding music sheets and a musical instrument.
My favorite pillow in thepinktulip2 shop has a crossed stitched rose bouquet tea towel centered inside a pink satin frame accented with wide and narrow lace. It is beautiful with the striped pink fabric backing and white pom pom fringed edges.
Located in Clinton Township, Michigan, ThePinkTulip and thepinktulip2 creations are run by the same self taught fabric artist. Multi talents include knitting, crochet, sewing, and designing her own patterns.
Custom Orders Accepted
Something for everyone

Vintage T-Shirts Rocker Chic


My daughter was browsing Etsy Shops recently and of course it was clothing. She found Madfoxes and just had to have one of her altered vintage t-shirts. You can see them HERE.
Madfoxes is in Canada and offers FREE SHIPPING. Including to the US. We sent Madfoxes my daughters measurements for a slightly larger halter T than offered. She had it made in a flash and ready for purchase.The halter T was a perfect fit when it arrived. Amazing that she could get the fit so precise and her work is quality. It is obvious she takes pride making her creations and her customer service is top notch.

If your looking for high quality workmanship, low pricing, free shipping, and great customer service go see Madfoxes at Etsy.

You will not be disappointed.

Handmade Tea Roses - Tussie Teas -Tea Sets

My daughter started planning her wedding last year; then they broke up. She wanted that elegant Cinderella wedding. Since we don't get to use these affordable finds and ideas I thought I'd pass them along to you.

I hope you enjoy my find and will visit Katie HERE an Etsy seller known as ShabbyRoses4u

We were going to use these precious paper teacups and paper tea roses for the reception. Did I mention she does custom orders. We wanted blue and silver tones.
These gorgeous Tussie Tea Roses were going to be used at the bridal shower. Did I mention you can really make tea with these? Not only beautiful, but usable.
Precious doily Tea Roses were going to be used at the wedding party dinner. Made with 100% food safe papers and materials each rose individually handmade by Katie making each piece unique.
All I can do is sigh for now, be happy that this break up happened before and not after, share and have a cup of tea. She uses Lipton Tea Brand my favorite for green tea.
