HANDMADE - SYNONYMOUS WITH KITCHENS

Our new blog ring feature has begun.  Remember, I posted day or so ago that it would be coming soon.  Our theme for this feature is spring.  I think the items I have shown below speak volumes about Spring. Spring is about renewal and beauty to me and there is nothing if not beauty below from the two shops that I am featuring here today.

This is our new way of featuring.  First you get the shops that are being featured. Here they are.

The Kitchens have two shops on Handmade Artists, but they are the force for us all and keep us all straight and moving forward.


MakinTheBestOfIt a wonderful shop that displays beautiful handmade creations.



Candide Altered Book Art

Here my first thought was of course, beautiful or as a friend of mine would say "beautimus".  Then I looked at it and being a bookworm myself, I am like "oh no, a book destroyed."  However, what better way to interpret a book.  This is Kimberly's interpretation of this one.  All the details are done by hand, the cutting the paper roses, everything.  Then she placed it in a shadow box an I would love to have something like this hanging in my boudoir. What says spring better than roses.



 
Chainmaille is the other half of this dynamic duo.  




 
Sterling Silver Daisy Chain Necklace

This necklace is surely a one of a kind.  The amazing work on this chainmaille necklace impeccable.  Pair this with black strapless evening wear ladies and you will be the hit of the evening.  Everyone will be asking where in the world you get such a piece.

Now everyone looks for daisies in the spring, right?    





From my own shop BeadThing


 


I chose this beautiful ring.  I just love rings. This ring is a 4 Leaf Clover from swarovski crystals and seed beads.  Can't you just smell the clover in the spring?









Now I get to choose one other shop, hmmm let's see, who will it be.  There are so many wonderful creations and artists to choose from.  Ok, how about this one.  Reef Botanicals.  Eric and Larissa are the driving force behind these absolutely, hands down, best smelling candles in the world, bar none. And HEY, what in the world says SPRING better than Lilac.  Oh, man, these are to die for.  Can't you just smell them already?


Stop by, take a look, and see what you might see.

Be Blessed
Pam

Beautiful choices and so fitting that the creators of Handmade Artists be the main feature, they spend so much time promoting all of us. Thanks for the finds.
