Etsy Love: Haworth Handmade (With a Giveaway)

Please feast your eyes on the awesomeness that is haworth handmade:


I don't remember how long ago I started reading Melissa's blog Under Construction, but I know it's at least been since September of 2007: that's when she blew out my circuits by making children's blocks out of her cherry tree, with a storage bag that had a picture of a cherry tree sewn onto it.

Her Etsy shop shows the same creativity: buttons made of wood, "make your own clothespin doll" ornament kits, fabric television covers, embroidered wood ornaments/jewelry, embroidered felt rocks. Do you see the rings made of a slice of wood embroidered with a jewel?? How are your circuits NOW? Blown?

You can win an ornament or embroidered felt rock of your choice. Leave a comment on this post, and I'll choose a random winner on Tuesday, December 8th.

haworth handmade on Etsy---go see!

I love the embroidered tree ornament! And also, I want her to come over and organize fun and pretty craft projects for me.

loving the embroidered felt rock nature collection - pretty rainbow! so cute!

Jen said...

The felt rocks are too cool. I'm still looking at the wood pieces and trying to figure out how you embroider wood...but it works!

I collect heart shaped objects found in nature & I think the embroidered heart on the wood is perfect for my collection :)

THIS is why I need someone to hold my hand as I navigate Etsy. Because how have I been missing her beautiful work for so long?!?

Alicia said...

Oh, my gosh... The SNOWFLAKE!

So, so pretty.

Yep, circuits BLOWN. My god, I spent hours on Etsy today and STILL cannot decide on a purchase because everything is so much fabulous than the last click, ya know?

Sweet, Sweet, Sweet. More Etsy hand-holding, please. I just searched for lockets and got 20,000 choices. Gulp.

Lovely lovely! Makes me want to embroider something, even though I spent ALL AFTERNOON yesterday doing just that.

Jenni said...

They are all so cute, but I think I like ornaments - easier to keep out of reach of my children

Manda said...

Is it weird that Etsy makes me feel better about my own inability to make time to do creative/crafty things? I hope not. :)

Mimi said...

So pretty! Such a fun idea!

Katie said...

So cute! Starting from scratch on decorations, these would be great.
