After a solid two weeks of rain, I'm grateful that sunny spring weather has once again returned to my neck of the woods. In celebration today I took a break from taking product shots to photograph some of the flowers appearing in my yard.
Gardening is not my forte, but I'm lucky that there are already some wonderful flowers planted at my new house.
I also managed to photograph the new Twilight iPhone stand and now have that available in my online store, and in my Etsy shop.
Coaster Sets are up!
A set of four coasters to protect your furniture. Each set comes with a lazy stand, tilted just so that the coasters stay put until you need them.
Each coaster is 3.75 inches square, and .375 inches thick.
Perfect for a housewarming gift, or a wedding present for those that are too hard to shop for!
Handmade in Pennsylvania from local, sustainably harvested cherry wood. Due to the handmade and natural nature of my work, the wood grain of the coaster set you receive will likely vary slightly from the wood grain of the coasters in the pictures.
The wood in this piece has been treated with boiled linseed oil. This oil hardens into the wood giving it a bit of protection. Linseed oil is a traditional wood finish that brings out the natural color of cherry wood without actually staining it.
Because these coasters are treated with a natural finish, they will wear over time. It is my belief that this adds to their beauty and individuality.
A couple weeks ago I tried an experiment. I burned some shawl pins before completely finishing them. The result, in my opinion, is GORGEOUS. As of today they are available in my online store as an option in the regular shawl pin section AND it has inspired me to host my first ever Instagram giveaway.
