I'm a Proud Daughter

I am so proud!  My 80 year old mother listed several Christmas ornaments she made today at Etsy.  We converted my 2nd shop, which has been dormant for awhile, into a new shop she is calling Carolina Homespun.   Since my mother is a fabric and needle artist, the name fits, and we do live in Carolina!

I helped her with the listings and the photos, and will be adding more of the felt ornaments in the next day or two as she finishes them.

These sweet little wreath ornaments, which she calls "puff wreaths," are her original design.  She has been making and sharing these with family and friends and our community for more than 30 years.   I doubt there is a Christmas tree in this county that doesn't have at least one of these wreath ornaments on it.  They also make fantastic napkin rings which guests can take home as a party favor or as we like to call them in the South, "surcees."   They also make wonderful thank you gifts or teacher gifts.  I've never met anyone who didn't love them.

Here is a peak at a few of the items Momma has made.  I hope you'll check out the shop and email us your comments on how you like it.  She's gotten a few views already and that gave her a huge thrill.

While the wreaths are adorable,the angel is just too cute for words.

They are so beautiful! All of them!
Your mother is very talented.

I can see where you get your talent from!

Thank you so much! I'll pass on the compliments to Momma. She made her first sale this morning, so we're (gingerly) doing the happy dance!
