As many of my readers already know, I'm a big fan of those with talents at knitting and crochet. But, with that said, I have to admit that's not what first drew me to today's shop. What first drew me to today's shop was the photographs of a cute pixie-like woman wearing a slouching beanie hat and a mischievous smile.
She's gorgeous, and I swear she could sell potato sacks as dresses. Not only that but she looks amazing in hats as well, which makes her the perfect model for today's feature shop.
Talk2theTrees on Etsy is a shop that's filled with hats. All kinds of crocheted hats from pixie hats and beanies to slouches, cloches, animal hats, headbands and more. There's even a handful of jewelry pieces mixed in.
Each hat is beautifully pictured and designed by hand by a very talented artisan from Salt Lake, Utah. And the amazing part? Rachel, the artist behind all of these wonderful creations, doesn't use patterns either. Everything at Talk2thetrees is an original design straight from the artist's own fountain of creativity. And she offers custom work too!
Rachel also has a second shop that offers prints and artwork as well.
Her Tree Talker on Etsy shop is filled with beautiful artwork with the same inspiration as her shop of crocheted items as well as lots of color and a personal style that easily connects both online shops to this very talented artist.
Rachel draws her inspiration from nature and trees to horror art, macabre, Halloween, mushrooms, Asian art, religion, cemeteries, dreams, antique bottles, tarot cards and palm reading.
It's a wide variety of inspiration and her artwork expresses the eclectic mix with beautiful flair and style.
I have personally fallen in love with her big-eyed art pieces like the one featured here in this post titled "Silly Squirrel", but she has a variety of styles to browse through and lots to fall in love with.... in both shops!
