Whimsical Handmade Collectible Crafts Inspired by Nature

Seapinks on EtsyEmbroidery is one of those talents that is on my list of greatly-admired-but-unable-to-do skills. As a child and adolescent, my mother tried over and over to try and teach me embroidery, because I loved embroidery embellished clothes and items, but I just didn't have the skill for it.

Today's shop, Seapinks on Etsy, is filled with tons of beautiful little bits made from the artistic embroidery talents of an artisan named Jenny with wonderful, fanciful visions created into beautiful embroidered items.

She loves plant and animal themes and creates a variety of plushies, figurines and embroidery bits along those lines. She also makes stuffed animals over in her other shop, BubbleTime on Etsy.

All of her items are made in a pet friendly, smoke-free home and the themes are just beautiful. I especially like her little pumpkins and pin cushions like the one pictured here in this blog post!

There are also beautiful earrings and necklaces to browse through. All made with recycled and vintage glass, natural gemstones, recycled fine silver, silver wire and copper. The styles are simplistic and elegant, earthy and just plain beautiful!
