Handcrafted Chairs for Kids, Little People and Dolls

My Little Big Chair on EtsyWhen I was little, I had a rocking chair that when you sat in it and rocked, it played music. It was my absolute favorite thing in the whole world, and I still have it today.

I think, when a child has a special piece of furniture that's all their own like that. Something that's not quite the norm but that can last and last and become, in time, a special piece they can hold on to, that it gives them something very special.

Today's shop offers that to everyone. My Little Big Chair on Etsy is filled with handcrafted chairs, tuffets and footstools for kids, little people and dolls. There's beautiful little armchairs and gorgeous ottomans. Even a white leather wing chair for dolls (very impressed with that one, too!)

The owner of this shop, Melanie, has been a furniture upholsterer for over 28 years and has a great deal of experience under her belt to make each piece filled with both beauty and quality.

Every piece from start to finish including the frames beneath all that beautiful upholstery are made by Melanie, too, and when you take a peek around her shop you'll have to agree that her talents abound!

Mystic Wynd on Etsy - Creative Jewelry for Everyday

Mystic Wynd on EtsyDoesn't the picture of this beautiful piece look like a painting? I was just amazed when I saw it. It looks too perfect to be a photograph, and with the background behind the necklace and earrings, that perfection ends up making the picture look like an oil painting.

I love creativity like this. Jewelry, on its own, is just gorgeous and today's shop has a lot of beautiful pieces. But, when you can then incorporate the pieces into a piece of art photography like this, it brings browsing someone's site to a whole new level.

Mystic Wynd on Etsy's shop is filled with beautiful jewelry and interesting display pictures, too. It makes it a real joy to browse through, and one that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

On her profile, Mystic Wynd's shop owner, Karen, states that "whether your style is simple or bold, classic or trendy, elegant or glitzy, Mystic Wynd has something for you at a prices you can afford". After a browse through her site, I'm positive you'll agree!

Karen also has a wonderful cornucopia of information about the artist on her Etsy Profile and you won't want to miss
