Today I’ll be looking at another one of my favorite shops – The Raisin Fairy!
First of all, let it be known, that I love ornaments! Our tree would probably be buried if I was allowed to put on all the ornaments I wanted. Among the best kinds of ornaments are pretty classic shaped ornaments with pretty pictures, Christmas Carol ornaments, icicles, a few Santas, and, of course, small animals.
The Raisin Fairy owner, Abigail, has a few wonderful little clay animals in nutshells. I always thought the choice of clay for the animals was interesting, giving these creations an accessible, charming, simple appeal. But I especially appreciate these little animals because I’ve dabbled (not quite the right word) in clay- with blobby, flaked results, and so its wonderful to see that someone can make such beautiful, delicate things out of clay.
Besides the wonderful ornaments, you can find some Gift Pockets, which would make wonderful stocking stuffers. They seem to be very popular, which is understandable. How can you go wrong with Starbucks, a candy cane and the season’s greetings?
The Raisin Fairy shop has an eclectic collection of fun things, besides what I’ve mentioned, including a cowl, hand warmers and sachets. These items I’ve mentioned are crocheted with the same beautiful skill I’ve seen Hannah use with her hats (you’d almost think they were related! *gasp*)
OK, time for me to take a personal look at the shop and it’s owner, since I have the advantage of knowing her!
Pictured on the right is the cowl I mentioned, with matching fingerless gloves (sold separately). Abigail probably had enough yarn to make the cowl, as well as the fingerless gloves, so I think this is probably the only cowl. But they are not the only fingerless gloves! Abigail is making several other fingerless gloves, which will be coming up on her shop very soon. And her sachets, also coming soon, are absolutely wonderful, usually scented with lavender and chamomile.
And I have saved the best for last- well, more like the latest for last, since her whole shop is best! Abigail has been working on Ephemeral Earrings. She has a good collection, so they will be appearing on Etsy very soon. I’ll just tease your curiosity, though, and leave Abigail to show off her new creations. But they are beautiful, and several are Christmas-y, so keep an eye on her shop to see when they make their appearance!
I invite you to see what Abigail has on her shop right now- The Raisin Fairy! It is well worth the look.
Have a great weekend everyone, and Merry Christmas!
