Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!  With holiday gatherings in mind, I put together an outfit that is laid back and festive.

Leaf Earrings from Feath & Kee

From Feath & Kee, I picked out this pair of leaf earrings.  They are made from recycled wood.  They are one of my favorite pairs in the shop right now. I really enjoyed making them.  Even the tool that I used to create the design was handmade from re-purposed wire.  They have a linseed oil finish, and stainless steel posts.

New in the Shop! 11.22.15

Here are the past week's additions to our shop...

blue square earrings from Feath and Kee
Primary Blue Square Earrings from Feath & Kee

These earrings are made from scraps of pine. They were shaped and painted a lovely primary blue.  I sealed this with a coat of clear acrylic for durability.

Worry Jar from Feath and Kee

Worry Jar 2 from Feath and Kee
Worry Jar #2 from Feath & Kee

"Worry Jar" , and "Worry Jar #2" are very similar.  They do have some differences, but I used the same paints.  The idea behind them is really very simple.  Instead of carrying your worries around with you, write them down and place them in the jar.  Hopefully this will lighten your burden!

Green Copper Striped Money Jar from Feath and Kee
Money Jar from Feath & Kee

Inspired by the colors of money, this money jar was painted with metallic acrylics and sealed with clear acrylic.

Yellow Circle Earrings from Feath and Kee
Yellow Wooden Earrings from Feath & Kee

Sanded and shaped by hand, each earring in this pair is a bit different.  The bright yellow paint can add a little bit of cheer on a dreary Winter day.

Texas Tree Root Earrings from Feath & Kee
Texas Tree Root Earrings from Feath & Kee

I love the gorgeous earth tones of these earrings.  They are made from a native Texas tree root.  I am not sure of the species, but just finished these with linseed oil.  I feel like their beauty speaks for itself.

Rainy Day Fund from Feath and Kee

Everyone needs to save for a rainy day.  This jar is the last large jar that we have that is available to ship.  In the future, we can make large jars via custom order.  However, in an effort to have some uniformity, I am trying to keep the jars close in size.  It used to be an enormous jar of spaghetti sauce, but now it is ready to hold your spare change.

That's it for this week!

How to Wear it Wednesday 11.18.15

It has been a busy week, and you can start to finally feel the chill in the air that marks the end of  the brief break that we have in North Texas between extremely hot to freezing cold.  With that in mind, it is always nice to curl up with a good book and relax.  This week's finds should help you to do exactly that.

Worry Jar from Feath and Kee
Worry Jar from Feath & Kee

It is not usually a good idea to carry your worries around with you.  Lighten your burden a bit by writing down your worries and putting them away in this up-cycled mason jar.  I painted it in shades of gray, with the label area in silver to remind you of silver linings.  It was listed in our shop just this week.

Handthrown, then glazed with a beautiful combination of glazes, this footed mug from Muddy Waters Ceramic Creations is just right for a nice cup of tea, or hot chocolate.

Crochet Slippers from CrasiiCoco

Adorned with lace and satin, these crochet slippers from CrasiiCoco will keep your feet warm.

Silk Velvet Robe from Cloud Hunter

Long my favorite bedding shop (heavenly duvet covers, gorgeous pillows), Cloud Hunter Co. now offers clothing.  This robe is made from dead stock silk velvet, so I imagine it is lovely to wear, and environmentally friendly.
