Note Cards

Sets of note cards featuring wildflowers, native birds, and majestic moths. Click on the picture to see all the cards. This has been a partnership with my 12 year old grand daughter Harper. I make handmade paper using recycles and add various seeds from my garden for texture. Harper does the illustrations which are transferred onto the paper. We both share painting each card individually using water colors. The subtle paper colors may not show good in the pictures but there is a variety: earthy tan, lavender-pink, calendula yellow, and minty green. Dimensions for each card is 3.5"x5" and a blank paper is inside for writing and a brown kraft paper envelope is included. The note cards are sold by sets of four, so please indicate Moths, Birds, Flowers. Email if you have questions or would like to purchase beckhoop@yahoo.com. Shipping is included in the cost.

These Lucky Shamrocks and Bunnies are pure Beeswax, which comes from our own hives here in Northern Ontario, and they have a wonderful honey scent. Waxers have been used for centuries by stitchers to condition their threads...it reduces fraying, and tangling, and the thread glides smoothly through your fabric. Each one comes with it own little drawstring bag for storage. Price is for 1 Waxer with bag, and travel fare is 5.00.

*** Sold thank you***Blue and tan Antique Quilt Pinkeep

I love using antique quilts in my creations. The quilt I used for this was one that had seen better days. The quilt was over 100 years old and showing a lot of wear so I salvaged what I could to make these wonderful pinkeeps. I can only imagine the history this quilt has! The pinkeep is a beautiful tan and cream color embellished with mother-of-pearl buttons, an antique brown flower button, and vintage glass-head pins. Around the quilt, I stitched antique ric-rac and then added glass beads to that. There is also a small cream colored crocheted flower under the button. The pinkeep is 5” long and filled with wool scraps and sits firmly in a dark blue and tan fabric covered papier-mâché lid. I am including the tiny 1” wool strawberry fob I made and the tiny bronze scissors. Kindly asking $65.00 and $7.50 for travel fare.

Finger Pincushions

I love how these finger pincushions came out. I also love the way they fit on my finger like a ring so I always have a pincushion at hand. They are made out of cotton fabric and filled with walnut shells to keep your needles sharp. You’ll find their size to be just right 3” from the point up to the top and about 2” wide. They kinda remind me of a heart when not in use and like a strawberry when they are being worn. (The thimble, scissors, and basket are not for sale) Asking$15 each plus $ 8 for priority shipping. Just let me know what color you’d like using the photo. Also click on the photo to see another photo of what they look like when worn.
