♥ Six Adorable Handmade Things ♥
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you some awesome handcrafted stuff from indie sellers. First up are some super cute accessories from the shop MoonBunny on Etsy. They are a team of 2 girls based in Russia, called Veronica & Tatiana, who combine their creative talents to make both polymer clay & crochet accessories. I bought an adorable crochet bear bracelet, & a clay bear ring, both of which I am so happy with! I think both items were around the £9 mark, which I thought was really reasonable, especially for the bracelet (tiny crochet, omg!). I can't wait to wear these out:)
Next up is this red wool collar with leather poodle accents by Love From Hetty & Dave. I'd been lusting after this for a while, but finally ended up buying it the other week after it went on sale for just £14. So cute! This will be perfect in winter months. The shop is run by Zoe, & it has a physical store based in Bournemouth, filled with lots of handmade leather accessories.
These gorgeous brooches were actually sent to me by a reader, the lovely Suzana, who blogs at 100% Suzi. I'm not sure if she has an online shop, but it seems you can order items via email. If I remember rightly from the package I received, Suzana is based in Slovakia. All the items she creates are so sweet, I think they are based on her illustrations. Thank you so much again Suzana, if you are reading this, I love them! I actually wore the bird one out the other day, but didn't get a photo.
Last up is this crochet Slushee bag that I ordered in custom colours from Twinkie Chan. I've loved her work since forever, but have never bought anything before, but when I saw these new bags she had designed, I knew I had to have one. I think it was about £27, which I thought was really good, crochet items take a lot of work! Twinkie was super lovely in our convo & seemed to know exactly what I had in mind when I said I wanted it in a pink & red colourway. I couldn't be more pleased with it.
