I love this print.  This artist, Chet Phillips, captures my imagination with his colorful, whimsical and maybe slightly eerie  illustrations.  I would write more, but I have to head back over to his shop and buy somethin’!

Go check him out!

Introducing the newest creation to hit ElizaLeigh — the ear warmer. Again, I used a variety of crochet stitches to get a unique pattern you won’t find anywhere else. Each warmer is accessorized with a crocheted double layered flower. The perfect punch of color and life, especially during the winter! Well enough introductions, let’s take a look:

As you can see, I kept a few for myself! These are super warm and don’t flatten your hair!

We have three on the site right now, with custom orders coming in! That means if you want one  in Olive Green with  a Sea Blue flower…you can request one! Want black with a plum flower? Just send us a message. We are always working to make items our customers (and ourselves) can enjoy.  So don’t be afraid to tell us what you’d like to see! We always look forward to hearing from our friends.

So go check the new items out on the site. You won’t be sorry!

If you don’t get there in time, email us for custom orders. We can do a plethora of colors!

AND — you’re going to want to check back soon for a brand new addition to our winter wear. I would tell you…but that would ruin the surprise. However, I’ll give you a hint. It keeps your ears warm, it’s stylish and it’s unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else.

See you soon!

I know that we promised we were stocking up the site over the holidays. However, you may not see the new items yet. Rest assured there are a ton of new things getting ready to hit the store in the next couple of days. Aprons, scarves, hats, blankets — all that stuff that we do so well (hopefully).

So stay tuned. It should be a very colorful week!

 “From ghoulies and ghosties
  and long leggety beasties
  and things that go bump in the night,
  May the Good Lord, deliver us!”

It’s almost Autumn. The beginning of my favorite time of year is peeking at me from around the corner. Yeah, it may be 96 degrees here today, but Sunday it will be 84. Then later, 82…then cooler and cooler it will get until the sweatshirts get unpacked and stripy kneesocks unfurl. Leaves will turn, the trees will fall gently asleep. I can almost feel the crisp breeze. Hear the leaves falling. Crunching. Smell the woodsmoke.

And while many Etsians are already peddling their Christmas wares, myself included, my other favorite holiday is creeping up also. Halloween!!! (Samhain for some of my friends)  I love being outside on an Autumn night, with a big harvest moon overhead.

This all reminds me of sitting around listening to spooky stories told by my uncle. He loves the spooky, the creepy and the bizarre. That must be where I get it. He taught me the poem at the beginning of this post. He would read to us the stories of the Brothers’ Grimm and International Folk Tales from Collier’s. They were not nice with pretty endings like bedtime stories today. There was no Elmo. There was a witch in a gingerbread house who would cook children. There was no Barbie. There were the Hobyas that came out of the woods and ate the Woodcutter and his Wife after Little Dog Toby tried his best to warn them. They were creepy and frightening and just plain awful. How I love them all!

So, in honor of the creepy and eerie and a good old haunting, I present some of my Halloween Etsy faves…
Enjoy or I’ll TP your monitor.

From the eye of JacqleenBleu we have a scene that is surely haunted..

This drawing makes me wonder if KellieDrawsPictures has a big nightlight…

Look out! A witch lives here! But a very cool LilWitchy, she is…

And you won’t want to be caught here after dark…(by Crafterella)

It always fascinates me to learn how artists find their way in the world. Today’s featured artist Shellie Mitchell used her circumstance as inspriation and motivation. She took chances, strayed outside the realm of what is thought of as “traditional” art and paved her own path. Or rather, she covered that path with fabric and allowed herself to flourish. Yay Shellie! I admire you!

Shellie’s technique results in artwork that you cannot take your eyes off of. And then, when you do and look back, you see something new. She has a great eye for color, story, texture, composition and emotion. Not many people can successfully combine these elements into something “right”. Just one look lets you know that you’ve come across something pretty special. And I can’t imagine what one of her pieces looks like in person. (My painting teacher – Prof. Stomps would have loved you!)

Here are some of my favorites. Check her out!
