Well, we have certainly had a great season in the vegetable garden with lots of zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, apples – the list goes on! We have also had a fab season for pumpkins and this afternoon we picked them all as we are having an early frost tonight which may kill the vines, but could also freeze the pumpkins so that when opening – say in three months time – they will be slop… not even OK to make soup with potentially.
(PS – I plan to do a painting of these pumpkins – aren’t they gorgeous!)
So not only did we (hubby & I ) pick the pumpkins I then went into the studio to make some platters, plates, coasters, rings and pendants impressed with pumpkin leaves. This idea has been popular in my ETSY shop so I thought I should make more while I still had the leaves available!
And this is an idea of the finished product 🙂
I hope to make more leaf imprinted plates and jewellery using whatever may be in season at the time – so stay tuned 🙂
Recently I opened another online shop, this time on Made It, an online marketplace for Australian shops.
As with the Etsy store all products are unique, and custom orders are welcome. Being a shop stocking tableware custom orders can include table settings – for example four bowls, a set of coffee cups or a set of condiment bowls.
Why set up another store? While Etsy generates huge amounts of traffic it is also highly competitive, which is not a bad thing, but it has made me consider the worth of having multiple online presences – well its worth a try, right?
So, without further ado here are some images of the works I have in my Made It store, and I will be adding more over time. And, of course, some of these beautifully crafted wares would make great Mothers Day pressies! And postage is free Australia wide! I do try to keep international postage at the minimum, and lower postage is calculated for multiple orders.
So, go check out my lovely handmade tableware and feel free to spread the love 🙂
